I am going as a Pacific Northwest Native American this year and my husband is going as a Mayan (he made his own costume, too, but he's not finished with it yet!). Here's mine!
I made it loosely based off a sloper. sleeves, bottom, neckline, and back are my own design.
The dress is made of microfiber suedecloth, vintage leather pieces, fringe, a decorative trim belt, strips of vintage raccoon fur, and some leather horses my mother cut out as appliques.
The moccasins I did not make, luckily. They are gorgeous and are/were my mother's.
Headband is made of two strips of rawhide, vintage raccoon fur, and red/white plumes.
Earrings are handmade feather ones (like the ones I sell).
The collar was a complete bitch to make. All the strands are glass beads (hand-beaded) on leather with fur, fringe, and pheasant feathers.
I also made a bow and arrow (out of dowels, feathers, bone, rawhide, and waxed linen) and a shawl (blizzard fleece with a decorative trim) - shawl is in chair. I still may do beads around the top of the collar. I'm not sure yet.
It isn't perfect, but over all I am pleased with it. It is the first costume I have ever made and the first time I have dressed up (in an actual costume and not weird stuff like I always wear) since I was little.
Sorry I don't have a photo of the back yet. If I get to it tonight, I'll post one up.
Everyone's costumes look so good! I am so jealous! You gals (and guys) are so talented!
