Intro: How to Make a Mascot Shark Costume
I made this fabulous suit for Halloween 2015 and a Katy Perry dress to go along with it! It has been one of the greatest costumes that I have made so far simply because of how happy it makes people when they see it! Even if Left Sharks glory days are behind him, you could change the blue color to gray and it would be perfect for a regular non dancing shark costume XD.
Every mascot suit out there can get pretty hot so to combat this, my boyfriend wore a camel pack with water that he had frozen for a few hours, this kept him cool and hydrated as we walked around. The suit also has a large opening center back that adds some ventilation.
