So this year at work, they're having a Halloween costume contest in our department...and seeing as I'm completely obsessed with birds lately, I decided to be a bird!
I used a picture of a Blue Jay as inspiration. I didn't think I'd be posting it, or I would have taken more progress shots. The costume is mostly made of felt, sewn onto a tshirt for the body, and a cheap knit cap for the mask. The eyeholes are in the beak (here's hoping I can see what I'm doing tomorrow!) I used polyfil to fluff out the head and the feet. Ahh the wonders of felt!
A few "tailfeathers" to shake tomorrow at work!
(Yeah, I'm thinking I won't get much work done)
