I'm going to be this guy:

Mahna mahna!
Purple makeup, big yellow-framed sunglasses, pink clown nose.  Anyone know of a quick, easy vest or tunic pattern?  I bought this green fur at Joanne's, I got a yard which should be more than enough.  I also don't know how to do that beard...  would it look bad if I just painted an orange beard on my face?

{Some theatrical makeup artists create more realistic looking facial hair by cutting fake hair (usually purchased in braid form) into individual whisker- or stubble-length pieces, and then attaching those loose pieces to the face with an adhesive called "spirit gum." For extra realness, sometimes more than one color of fake hair whiskers are mixed together. Using this process, it can take hours to create a convincing look, depending on the style you are applying. Additionaly, quality hair, adhesive, and adhesive remover can be quite expensive. While this method may create a better result than a one-piece paste-on, it still is not very realistic to the touch (the glue can be tacky even after drying), the hairs can easily fall off or be rubbed off, and it can be difficult to continue to re-create the same pattern day after day.} 

you could buy a cheap wig that color or yarn Smiley

A couple years ago I was Steve Zissou and I went the cheap/easy route.  FELT!  I made a cheesy beard out of it and attached it to the beanie.  The beard in action:



This method isn't very realistic, it's more cartoony.  But, I find this look is more entertaining.  You could probably connect your beard to your wig.  Of course, felt might not be furry enough for your costume, but you could use furry fabric.

Does anyone have ideas on how to get the belt to work? I'm not sure whether to just fabric glue it on or make it a working belt.

A working belt might be best.  It might be easier because then you can adjust the way your dress sits once you put the belt on. If you glue it, there's no adjustment possible.

That's what I thought too. I think I'm gonna use Velcro to close it in the back. That seems the easiest.

Thanks!

emkay,

feathers specifically cheap feather boas, thats what his "real" hair and beard are made from.   you get the look and movement of it

attach with spirit gum? double sided tape?  for the wig I would attach it to a head band with hotglue.
