I didn't realise that it was an animated series, but I do own the game.

Again, awesome!

Thank you!

Thanks, Everyone!

Awesome costume - I bet all the kids wanted to touch you!  Smiley

Yes!  In the last picture you see a little girl who was following me around for most of the night.  She would run up to touch my scales, and I would say (in my best armadillo voice) "Uh oh!  I wonder who might be behind me..."  And she would run away giggling before I could turn around.
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pink Fairy Armadillo on: November 03, 2013 05:43:40 AM
I am a children's librarian and this year for our Boo @ the Library program I decided to do an unusual animal costume.  I was hoping to get the kids to ask what I was so I could guide them to a book display on the topic.

After looking through some lists I chose the pink fairy armadillo:

And here's the costume:

Big claws for agitating the sandy ground so they can "swim" through the soil:

Lots and lots of scales or scutes that make up the top layer of this creature's bony armor:

I had a special nametag made for the day that says "Pink Fairy Armadillo."  Thanks for looking!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead Art Quilt on: October 28, 2013 07:22:22 AM
Here is a little hand quilted Day of the Dead piece.  The top is dupioni, some cheapy baby crib batting in the middle, and the back is the same spider print cotton as the casket pieces.  The skeletons are little plastic Halloween decorations my friend found in her amazing seasonal stash.  I made the flower using silver lame and the Bucket List Girl tutorial:


This is my first time hand quilting, and I think I'm hooked!  Smiley

Whoa!!! This is AMAZING!  Did you design the pattern yourself?? I swear, you can make a crochet version out of anything!

Thanks!  I took measurements from a real accordion and then made up the pattern as I went.  It was basically a lot of flat panels pieced together.
