I'd be in.  I've been trying to spin more because I have so much roving to use, but I've been having motivation problems for some reason.  But a swap would be good motivation.  Smiley

One of my boyfriend's pet names for me is "skunk" (long story) and we both agreed it'd be cute if I went as a skunk for Halloween this year.  And since I didn't want to be a "sexy" skunk that meant making my costume myself.  
I started with a black sweatshirt and black sweatpants as a base.  Then I bought white and black furry fabric for the stripe, ears, and tail.  Sewing on the ears and stripe were easy.  I hit a minor snag with my tail.  It was supposed to be more upright and with a bit of a curve to it, but the wire I put in just crumpled to the bottom the first time I sat down in the costume.  So I ended up being a skunk that wasn't on high alert.   Cheesy  I joked about getting one of those clown spraying flower things to rig up so I could actually spray people (though not with actual skunk spray  Tongue ) but that was starting to get a bit too complicated.
Here's the final result:

I bought black bear paw slippers and black paw glove things.  The gloves didn't stay on very long since it was hard to eat, drink, or do much of anything with them on.  The slippers were awesome though.  

I took this picture because my boyfriend said a skunk wearing sunglasses looked ridiculous, but in this case it helps show off the ears a bit better.  

This costume had the bonus of being pretty much the most comfortable costume ever.  I was basically just wearing pajamas and a blanket as my costume.  Luckily it wasn't too warm either of the times I wore it, or else I would have melted right out of it, since it was very warm inside.

Cool!  That's a really great design, esp. for around Halloween-time.
