My friends are having a surrealist themed party this weekend and my bf and I are going as The Lion and Unicorn (you know, from the Royal Coat of arms of the United Kingdom and also from Through the Looking Glass).

Obviously I don't have much time to do anything.  We're not interested in making a full out head to toe costume either.  I just want your ideas on how I could make my bf's head look liony.

I'm a knitter, so I've been thinking of knitting and slightly felting a headband thing that could be the mane.  I guess I could knit and felt ears as well?
I don't think he'd be interested in any sort of make-up for his face.

And should I make something for his hands to make them paw-like? 

What are your suggestions for making him liony?

I'm pretty sure I can make myself look unicorny.  (haha)

Do you sew?  If I had to have a costume by the weekend, I'd run, not walk, to the fleece section.  It's easy to sew, doesn't ravel so it doesn't need hemming, etc.  That, plus felt from the craft store(cheap!), a sewing machine and some fabric glue, and I'd be good to go!

Oh wow, check this out:


I searched for "fleece mane" on Google and this came up.  There is a lion hat you could get ideas from, but boy I love the Roman helmet!  Maybe you could even do a unicorn.

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye; then hey, free eyeball!
