Awww, cute! Nice fur texture. The only thing I see right off is the skis. They need to be longer, at first I did not know what they were.

yeah- the skis
one of the problems is that it has to be fit for a live mascot ( a person in a suit) so, we had to make them short so you could walk around with no problems in the suit- if you had long skis that would not be posible, and they are cuter this way i think-
but i see that this is a problem, but dont know how to solve it and still keep the functionality of the small skis-
any ideas?
maybe to put straps over the foot of the mascot? maybe this would make them more "ski like"
thx for your time!

There are such things as short skis though aren't there? So in that respect, they're not too unrealistic.

I would put some real fur on him to go over the texture, to go for the added "cuteness" factor.

Is he Croatian by any chance?

he is croatian:)
- we will make the skis just a tad longer and will be adding the poles-
thx for the help:)!

Hehe right on. No need to change the ski length. Those are ski boards. I just bought a pair of those myself!

yeah:) we are counting on patriot feelings from the judges so we tried to put the red/white checkerboard wherever posible:)
lets hope it will work:)
