Secretary of Health and Human Services, The White House:
The life size T-Bear costume is a successful
masterpiece, and I would like to express my personal thanks to
you for all your efforts. T-Bear has captured the hearts of both
young and old alike, as he provides the necessary positive image
needed to make the "Handwashing Campaign" a success. T-Bear's
popularity and success will continue to grow with each appearance
of the life size T-Bear.

Training and Communication Manager, Nestle Chocolate & Confection
Thanks for the fast service on our Mr.
BB, Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, and Pearson costumes. They look
great! The smiles stretch from ear to ear whenever someone sees
one of the characters. In addition to the visual excitement of
the costumes, the workmanship and design are outstanding. It
will be very easy to clean the fabric by unzipping the cloth
from the foam.
Craig R. Wallick,
Manager, Retail Merchandising, Uniroyal Goodrich
Just a short note to thank you for you
assistance and professionalism regarding our new tiger costume
that your firm is manufacturing. As you know, we have purchased
in excess of 20 costumes this year so far and I feel that this
will become our most successful new promotion introduction of
1989. Your company, your staff, and your professionalism have
aided in making this so overwhelmingly popular with our dealer
Theresa L. Busch,
Director of Student Activities, Hoffman Estates High School
I can't begin to tell you how pleased
I am with the original Red-Tailed Hawk mascot costume you created
for us. I can't wait to "hatch" our new mascot in front of the
student body as we kick off our basketball season for the 1996-97
school year. The work, detail and care with which the Hawk was
made is obvious. I thank you and your staff for creating such
a wonderful mascot for Hoffman Estates High School. You have
helped to create a new tradition for the Hawks that I am sure
will last for many years to come!

Marketing Specialist, Naval Air Station Sigonella
Thank you so much for your excellent
customer service and timely delivery of a high-quality product.
We are very happy with our "Geep" and plan on using him at our
many festivals, special events, promotionals, and children‚s
Tom Thomas, Promotions
Director, KQCR Radio (Iowa)
We here at KQCR would like to send you
our thank you to all of you for the wonderful job you did on
our station mascot, the Q-Moose. We received it yesterday and
our entire staff went wild. The quality of the costume was quite
impressive, but the real selling point is the way it comes to
life when we slip it on. We plan to debut the Q-Moose at a station
promotion, and if the public‚s reaction is a positive as the
reaction of our staff, we should have an incredible public-relations
tool for many years to come.
Luis Ojeda, Director
of Marketing, Tri-City Chinook (Washington)
I want to thank you and your staff for
making our mascot the best in the Continental Basketball Association.
Thank you for the "OUTSTANDING" job on our mascot.

Just wanted to let you know how pleased
we are with our REX THE SAVE-A-SAURUS dinosaur costume. We are
particularly impressed with the quality of the costume and the
attention to details. We will recommend you anytime!
Suzanne Di Silvestri,
Marketing Manager, Expressly Portraits (New York)
I am writing to let you know how thrilled
we are with the recent custom costume you created for us. I was
amazed at how closely you replicated our bird mascot from a photo
alone, and how you were able to take a non-human shaped character
and make it human wearable without losing the overall look of
the bird. Currently, we have the bird in our Roosevelt Field
Studio in Garden City, New York. In such a large mall, the bird
has already made a difference in our business. As a testament
to how well this is working for us, we are ordering four more

Thought you'd get a kick out of just
a tiny example of the tremendous use that we put your "walk arounds" to.
They never cease to bring down the house. They are one of the
best inventions you've ever made.

Just thought you would like to know that
the bear costume is a big success! Our bear has entertained children
at our city-wide health fair, on our Pediatrics unit and on hospital
tours. We are very grateful for your wonderful help in getting
our "Wee Care" Bear program started.
Marketing Manager, TeVe Guia (Puerto Rico)
We can't begin to tell you how thrilled
we are with the "TEVEGUITO" costume your company executed for
us. The FACEMAKERS staff is to be congratulated for the fine
workmanship and interpretation of the character. We were so impressed
with the detail of the work and careful attention your company
took to create a true work of art that we are really proud of.
Joyce A. Trageser,
Science Specialist-Public Programming, Maryland Academy
Please accept my thanks for the wonderful
Tyrannosaurus Rex costume. We are thrilled with the final results!
The response was fantastic - we had "kids" of all ages scrambling
to have their pictures taken with Mr. Rex! So far, Rex has made
numerous appearances at local Baltimore events, including two
TV spots. As an educational tool the costume will be invaluable
to us, both now and in the future.
C. Denver Mullican,
Vice President, CMC, Inc. (Louisiana)
Your Red Nosed Reindeer costume has been
a big hit at Lakeside Shopping Center. In fact many children
bring hay to feed it. We would like to order a fur-covered snowman
for this season. Enclosed is a check.
Production Manager, Capener, Matthews & Walcher (California)
The costume is excellent! Please give
a great big thanks to your crew for making this happen for us
and doing such an excellent job. You came through for us and
I can't tell you what a relief that was for all of us!
Heather S. Gavens,
Public Education Coordinator, Hillsborough County Animal
Thank you for the wonderful job on "WAGS," our
new mascot. He has already made his first public appearance and
the children love him. The cooling vest and collar make all the
difference. The costume is made well and your service was fantastic!
Our idea went from paper to reality in no time.
Entertainment Unlimited (Missouri)
Just a note to let you know how pleased
we are with the rabbit costume you made for us. I am enclosing

kissed him at the party!

well worth the investment. Thanks for a very fine costume.

better than outstanding! I ordered "The Havencrest Tour" video
and "The Queen of Cold" video combo on Friday, August
15, 2003. The videos were in my mailbox Monday, August 18, 2003.
That is the fastest service on mail order that I have ever received.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful
work you did on Pacifica's Bulldog costume. We are so HAPPY and
grateful that we came across your website. We finally have the
mascot we've been hoping for!!! You are great!!
Bradley Dunn, Rumpke

We received our new costume this morning.
The pictures you sent of "Binny" during the construction process
in no way did him justice. The costume is absolutely wonderful,
and much better than I had ever hoped for. You took my vision
and created a usable, huggable mascot that we can be very, very
proud of. It looks great. Thank you so much for getting him here
in time for the Reds opening day parade as promised. Binny will
also be used in school presentations and events like Earth Day,
I am sure he will be very well received. You guys made my day!
I will recommend Facemakers to everyone that asks where we got
him from. This was money well spent!
Campbell Smith, Field
Producer, MTV2, Wonder Showzen
Hello, Facemakers! Sorry that I
have not gotten in touch sooner, but we LOVE our Chauncey
mascots! They arrived on time, and when we opened the box
we all just went ape over them! We have had so much fun shooting
some hilarious scenes for our show while wearing the mascots.
Once I get some pictures, I'll send them your way so you can
see the fruits of your labor in action. Thank you so much for
your wonderful service, I will definitely recommend your company
in the future!

I searched high and low, did lots of
research, and the Facemakers Grizzly Costume is far and away
the best I've found. It scares the bejesus out of my audience
twice daily here in Las Vegas, and has held up for years.
George Eisenhart (www.monsternationals.com),
Image Promotions, Ltd.
I just wanted to tell you how much I
love our mascot. It is probably the best $3k I've spent on my
business in some time. The kids love it, parents can't wait to
take pictures and it creates a great atmosphere before, during
and after my events. Thanks again.
Rachel Curry, Riverfront
Nancy and I just wanted to let you know

was a great hit with our student body today at the Pep Rally.

I will highly recommend your company to all I speak to. A special
thanks to Denisa for putting up with all my phone calls and questions.
Thank you soooo much!

Just a note to let you know that I have
received the lion costume I ordered and it far exceeds my expectations.
I really love it, and will be taking it tomarrow to our club
so that they can all see it. I am sure it will be a big hit at
the annual Polar Bear Swim on March 1st. We were hoping it would
be in by then and it is, so once again thank you for your help
and for a great looking costume.
I just wanted to let you know that Fat Chance has arrived safe and sound; HE LOOKS FABULOUS!!! We are so happy with how he turned out; he is literally the spitting image of our logo!! We have an event scheduled in NYC on Dec 13th and are going to be on the Today Show with Fat Chance on the following Monday, he will be a well traveled hippo!
Thanks so much for all the time you spent working with me on this, it was truly appreciated!
Just wanted to let you know I received Krackerjack Kangaroo back this afternoon....he is *FANTASTIC!!!* I want to thank you and everyone at Facemakers for the wonderful job you did with creating him and having such a warm and charming kangaroo character...I saw him several years ago on your website and decided that one day he would join the cast of characters that I perform as through my character appearance business. That day has arrived...I'll be calling him "Kazoo the Kangaroo", and he's already scheduled for a parade at the beginning of December where he'll be making his grand debut!
Thanks again, and I'll definitely be using Facemakers again for my costume needs!
