‘Where to start? Initial contact with Sally was prompt and informative! She was very helpful and welcoming with the ideas I came to her with. From start to end she was like the costume mentor that I never had with the guidance she had provided! For Sally, no job was too big and I can't thank her enough. She was a delight to speak to on the phone too. When the costumes arrived, they were just wonderful and very well made! With clear instructions on costume care, she put my mind at ease at every corner I faced! If you need a fabulous costume for an extremely competitive price, I highly recommend the service and quality that Sally had provided. 5 Stars!!  Thank you Sally @ Mimics Productions Michael

I couldn’t be more pleased that I decided to go with Sally at Mimics Productions to create a costume of our Collins Big Cat character. Unlike other companies she was there every step of the way, providing detailed sketches up front to check that we were happy with the design. The quality of the costume and the customer service was absolutely second to none, and the price provided fantastic value for money. Sally put a huge amount of work into the costume and it will be a brilliant brand ambassador for us. Thank you again! Louisa

Many thanks Sally for creating Pippa our pepper technology groups website mascot. She is exactly as she is on the website but brought life. Her first outing - what an entrance she made, she stole the show and will be a talking point for many months to come from both adults and children alike, she will be a great ambassador for all our promotional drives Sally the whole process from start to finish was incredibly easy. You are a joy to work with, very professional and yet very approachable. I feel we became great friends in a very short time. I wish you every success in the future Gary

Our friend at Mimics Productions, Sally, did a fantastic job of making our RSPCA characters, Rufus, Ruby and Robin into giant size mascot costumes! They were delivered as promised and exceeded our expectations in terms of detail and quality. RSPCA

Yesterday was an incredible success. The staff and top management of Beeah thought Khadoor was amazing. Time and again they came up and commented . What was more wonderful to behold was the reaction from the children their parents and carers. From the moment he came out he was mobbed. They could not stop touching him, feeling him, shaking his hand and cuddling his belly. All their faces lit up and smiled.  We could only walk one or two steps before more people wanted photos with him. It was beautiful to watch. Khadoor’s look certainly made them come running, but as soon as they touched him there was an instant magic. They loved the way he felt. There was something really special about the material and his soft squidgyness. Can I say more….. Briliant job Sally. You brought him to life and now all the kids who see Khadoor on the posters and bins and leaflets and adverts will have a connection with him. Jonathan Ibrahim Asanga


OMG bunny is amazing! 🙂 Sorry for delay, didn't get in until late last night, so didn't unpack him until this morning. Fits like a glove and is absolutely perfect, looks so silly on ( which is exactly the look I was going for! ) I love the feet, I have about 20 different mascot costumes, your feet are the best hands down! 🙂 Ears are hysterical! Love them! 🙂 Thank you so much Rob

THE COSTUME IS GREAT You have definitely done us proud. Money well spent. Word spread when it was delivered about the new costume and since then I have had a steady stream of people coming to the office to have a look at the new costume. The guy who bought the original costume a few years before loves it, which says a lot, as he created the whole concept.I myself love it especially since I was the one that came up with the new design and he looks exactly the same. I would be proud to recommend you to anybody else. Thanks again. Sheffield Students Union
