Yep, I started in high school and workd up to professional mscoting,was even part of the formulating and creation of the first ever mascot at my college. I was awesome and a lot of fun, i wish i could get back into it.
Oooooh, why don't we do these things in Italy? Not that I would ever have the guts to show myself in public dressed as an overlarge animal, considering how shy I am, but the kind of school I attend has so much potential... as you're the Wildcats, we could be literally any sort of creature from classical mythology, seeing as Latin and Greek are the basis of our education. Too bad a Chimaera costume would be a tiny little bit complicated.
