Ronald McDonald

Ronald McDonald is one of the most iconic mascots the world over.  A twist on the classic clown motif, Ronald has been making kids smile and promoting the international fast food chain McDonald’s since the 1960s.  He was briefly joined by Mayor McCheese, the Hamburglar, Grimace, Birdie the Early Bird, and The Fry Kids in the 1970s, though none of these had the staying power of the original mascot.  Ronald’s look includes plenty of yellow and red, with red and white striped shirt and socks, big clown shoes, and a curly red wig.

Burger King

“The King” or the “creepy” King was the Burger King mascot from 2004-2011. While some people loved the silliness of the ad, a lot of people found the updated mascot creepy. Whether you were a fan or found him unsettling, dressing up as The King is a great royal cosplay!

It’s almost impossible to find the actual prop head that the company used but there are masks that give you the same look. Once you have the mask, the rest of the costume is a fairly standard king costume. A red velvet coat trimmed in white fur, a gold tunic over a white high-collared shirt, and red trim at the bottom added with fabric paint. Finish off the look with white compression pants, covers for your shoes to make them into tall back boots, and a heavy gold chain. It’s good to be the King!

Gritty

Behind the Grit: A Conversation with Gritty Creator Brian Allen

Mascots have been been a part of sports for decades. The first costumed mascots were introduced in 1964 and they’ve […]

Mr. P from Pringles

Mr. P from Pringles

Mr. Pringles is the long-time mascot for the chip in a can. While his old-timey hair and mustache have long been featured on the packaging, his body is something of a mystery. Or it was, until the HBO talk show host John Oliver issued a challenge on Twitter and wondered “Is he tall or short? Does he have a lot of body hair or is he completely smooth? When will he be able to tell me what his nipples look like?” While the public drew their own fan art, giving Mr. P a sexy physique or dapper tuxedo, the actual body reveal was more toned down, with the mascot dressing for comfort.

Goldilocks from Purple Mattress

Goldilocks from Purple Mattress

In the Purple Mattress commercials, Goldilocks (Mallory Everton) is a bed expert who mischievously uses raw eggs to test the quality of mattresses. A hard mattress will crack the eggs, a soft mattress will also crack the eggs, but a mattress that’s just right will cradle the eggs, even with 1,000 pounds of weights on top of them.

Gritty

On September 24, 2018, the world was introduce to the Philadelphia Flyers’ new mascot Gritty, and the Internet has never been the same.  Gritty has become a viral sensation, thanks in large part to his appearance as a slightly off-kilter, oversized muppet.  To really take your Gritty costume to the next level, you will want to exaggerate the size of your body and accessories.  Using slippers that look like shoes, and layering your jersey and shorts over an oversized onesie will help give the appearance that you are larger than life, just like the real Gritty.  And if you don’t want to shell out for the official mascot’s jersey, a simpler replica or a jersey you already own will also suffice.

Captain Morgan Mascot

Captain Morgan

Captain Morgan is easily one of the most recognizable mascots. You don’t even have to dress like a pirate if you pull his name in a game of charades. Just put your hand on your hip and mime standing on a barrel. Most people will know exactly who you’re talking about.

And though you might not need to dress like a pirate to evoke The Captain, there’s no reason you shouldn’t! Especially on August 16, National Rum Day. Most of the pieces of his costume are pretty easy to find and can be mixed into other period costumes for an added bonus!

The first thing you need is a red and gold pirate hat. Under that you’ll want a long black wig and a black goatee. A red and gold pirate’s coat, white shirt with a ruffed collar, brown leather bandolier, and blue collared cloak make up the top half of his clothing. You’ll have to add gold edging to the cloak but gold tape should make that easy. Black breeches, a brown belt, and brown boots make up the bottom half. And of course no pirate would be complete without his saber and his pistol. You don’t need to carry a barrel with you though you can if you like. Finding anything to prop a foot on and strike a pose will do just fine!

Gorton’s Fisherman

You can trust this Gorton’s Fisherman costume will be a hit! A masculine silver fox, the Gorton’s Fisherman is ruggedly handsome and wears bright yellow gear to keep him dry and a warm navy blue sweater.

Pucca from Pucca

Pucca

Pucca is the main character of her self-titled show. She is a capable and powerful martial artist who opts to support her friend – and crush – Garu in his own martial arts pursuits. She tends to be clingy and follows him around. He isn’t too keen on this even though she saves him from trouble time and again. Like Garu, many people make the mistake of underestimating Pucca. With her black leggings, red dress, pink cheeks, and hair buns she is the epitome of cute. Just don’t make her angry!
