... 'cause that fiesty Pan is right outside your bedroom door...
Hee hee, that's just my lovely boyfriend.


I HATE that picture...

the wings...

I'm quite proud of my Pan-nymph couple costume idea.
I made all of it, too.

Horns: salt dough, glue, & tape
Panpipes: bamboo & that decorative straw stuff sold in bags at Wal-Mart
The Lower Half: CougarGrrl graciously provided me with instructions for this part. But me, being myself, followed *most* of it. Instead of platforms, I used plain ol' heels with the heel sawed off, and the long "pant" legs were pulled over the heel part and glued in place. The hooves were the toes of the shoe covered with plastic and a cleft drawn on with marker. I wish the hoof picture turned out... There's also a tail made from the nubby "leg" material, and long white faux fur underneath.
Ears: Same material as the "pants", but with light pink felt with the white fur on the inside (which you can't really see) for realism

Wings: vinyl, fake leaves, modified stuffed snake toy, ribbons, wire, jewels, etc. It would have been hilarious for me to see myself sewing the vinyl to the wire frame, balancing my sewing machine on my lap all the while.
Toga: strategically placed bracelet, neat-o cord, and well... a bedsheet. Sorry  Roll Eyes

I had also pinned leaves in my hair for natural goodness.
Enjoy! And Please leave feedback...

I realize that Halloween 2006 has passed and there's a decline of interest of such things right now. But people have read this, and I'd really like to know what you think. It doesn't mean that you have to dress up like this. Especially right now. Please show some craftster lovin' anyways.

I think you made some very cool costumes!
And i love how you made your dress out of just a bedsheet! It looks very good on you!
And you go together very well.
The first picture made me laugh!:D
