Costumes With Character are mascot designers and manufacturers based in Stockport, UK and have over 35 years' experience in bringing brands to life.

Founded in 1986, we have gone from strength to strength, becoming a trusted supplier for major brands across the globe, including Nickelodeon, LEGO, Aardman, Cadbury's, Parkdean Resorts, Haven, Butlins, BBC, S4C, Kellogg's and many more!

Our World Class costumes are hand made in-house with the highest quality materials and last over 10 years with frequent and daily use.

We believe that quality character costumes should not only look amazing, but should be practical and comfortable for your performer, durable and easy to maintain and affordable. Our expert makers and knowledgable team will help to tailor your character to your requirements, ensuring it is the perfect fit for you.

We can work from your design and preferences, and also offer a full design service should you need help with finding the right character for you.

Once your character has left us, we're still here for you. We are happy to offer any support you may need and also provide a refurbishment service to help you to keep your character looking as good as new.

We can also produce puppets, props and custom dye-sublimation printed fabrics / wares.

Thanks so much for creating our fab loafie costume, it’s brilliant! The print quality of the loaf is excellent, it looks just like our bread. Please pass on our thanks to your designers & production team.

“It has been a pleasure working with Costumes With Character, the team are always at the ready to assist with any requests. Service is fantastic and turnaround times always exceed expectations. Barci is a much loved part of the family and we have been impressed by the quality of the suits. He is a valuable addition to our local marketing activities.”

Amy Schoeman, Nandos

“Working with Costumes with Character has been a lovely journey of discovery as the RNLI works to evolve its current promotional character, as well as creating a new character that is inclusive and diverse and can inspire a wider audience. From functionality, design, conceptual work, and consultation, Costumes with Character have most certainly delivered at a high standard. We truly cannot wait to see our new characters in action and are already planning growing our engagement with more Stormy and Billies.”

Peter Emmett, RNLI
