After two years, Team Insider once again had the honor of attending IAAPA Expo 2022 and learning what’s new from the industry’s leading mascot manufacturers.
We’ll start off with International Mascots LLC. Insider John interviews the wonderful Tom Sapp, who has been with International Mascots for quite some time. You also may notice in the background some friends from the Great Wolf Lodge and their own friend Patches who joins in as a surprise later on.
Up next is our friends Costume Specialists. As many know, they are a unique company that specialize in both fur and inflatable fur costumes. It’s always a joy to interview them. Insider John sits down with President of Costume Specialists, Greg Manger about what’s new for them as well as how they’ve been handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
We next move onto Creations JCT and Robot Costumes, which are mainly based in Mascouche, Quebec, Canada. They've made some cool mascots including Yuppi and more. John sits and talks with Jean-Claude, President of Creations JCT.
