My husband and I before a Halloween party
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
This year I decided my husband just HAD to be a satyr/faun. For once he actually agreed to wear a costume I made, I figured I might as well take advantage and do a family theme costume like I've been wanting. I looked at DOZENS of different tutorials, but for the most part went with http://youtu.be/vRMIo-lPp_8 for the way to do the padding. I tore apart shorts we all had for the top of the legs and for the bottom, I added two inches around the tracing of our legs with padding. The hooves were made 3 times. The first time, mine were made out of crayola model magic and chunks kept flying off during the night. Second time, they were all made with polymer clay but they all cracked where they were screwed into our shoes. This last time they are made out of paper mache over the bottom of milk gallons, where the grooves are. My husband and I's horns are paper mache over a aluminum foil base on elastic. My daughter's horns were bought at renfest.
