Ehmisa Turtle Character Costume

Ehmisa was the 2010 FINA Swimming Championships official tournament mascot and is one of the cutest turtle mascots we have ever made. The Championship was held in the UAE, which was the first time a country from the Middle East had hosted the event and it was a success every step of the way.

PLEASE NOTE: This specific costume is not for sale or hire. It is subject to copyright and is here for your inspiration only.


Ehmisa is the Arabic for turtle and as the ambassador for swimming, it seemed only right to have him in his favourite pair of swimming shorts and goggles.

This modular turtle has a removable shell and legs to make it easier to transport and a lightweight Plastazote head covered in green fleece, keeping it light for maximum wear time in the hot UAE sun. The team sprayed into the fleece to create interesting detail, and shading to make the costume pop!

It’s fair to say this character is a TURTLEY awesome creature creation.
