I only just realised there was a costume section here. I'm in the process of making an Owl Costume for a child in a school play when I searched for costumes and found this area. (I'll post the owl later)

Anyway, at my place of employment which is a Primary/Elementary School we celebrate book week by having a full day of dress up. Everyone must dress as a book character. (I may go as the kid from where the wild things are next year. I went as the Queen of Hearts the year before)

I decided this year that I was going as Buck Beak from Harry Potter. This of course is a personalinterpritation of the character, but I was so pleased with how it turned out. It took people ages to figure out it was me underneath and  while very people knew what character I was I got a lot of attention. "Hey! Look at the Eagle!" The child I work with was actually a little frightened of me. Lol.  Cheesy

I made it from Newspaper, craft foam, plaster cloth, cardboard, wire and acrylic paints. Took me two weeks to complete, and it was very heavy and uncomfy.  Lips sealed

My highlight of the day though was getting a lift home with my co-worker Nathan who was dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West. He was painted green and wearing a black robe. So there's me dressed as Buck Beak in the back, while he slowy drives through town tooting and waving at people. I'll never forget the moment when gleefully lent out the window to wave at some old people.  Grin

I would have just stared. LOL Then when I recovered, I would have waved and maybe a yoooo hoooo.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

This is nothing short of incredible.  Great job.  You can really see all of the hard work you put into this costume. Fantastic job.
