Here is a peek at Chase's Charizard costume. You can't really see the tail but let's be honest the mask is the best part!
I have never made a foam mask before...I used the fursuit tutorials online to walk me through the steps. Someone even did a great Charizard tutorial! The cosplay stuff out there is kind of amazing.
If I could redo anything I would have used chiffon for the eyes, the interfacing I used isnt strong enough and tears too easily. Also I would have colored the eyes with a bright blue instead of navy. Oh well...
The wings could also have a bit more of a back to help hold them on but I am still working on a wing final solution.
Can't wait to finish up the small details and see the kids in their costumes!
I have been wanting a Halloween banner but haven't had any time to do anything elaborate. I found these letters as free online printables and I just put some scrapbook paper that I already had behind the letters. I am not a huge fan of the color orange so I went with purple instead. A black ribbon and some fabric scraps and Ta Da!
I was going to get my hair trimmed today and the lady mentioned that my hair was long enough to donate to Locks of Love. The last time I donated my hair was right after I had Chase so fun to donate it again after Keira.
