iamdolleyes: That is a super-cool Anubis costume! I just may steal that idea for next year, if you don't mind... .
I was an owl this year. The mask I found and printed from the internet. The wings are painted cardboard with feathers from a boa glued on, as is the tail. The chest feathers are a boa sewed onto a velvet tank top. The hair combs have boa feathers glued on. I took magenta and purple watercolor paints to the feathers and painted them with a toothbrush.
