I know my costume isn't awesome like most of the ones on here, but I LOVED it! I only dressed up for work, and we were pretty limited to what we could wear. Basically we could do our hair/makeup and wear jeans/t's. So this is what I came up with! the beard took me the longest at about 45 minutes, it was super soft!

thanks for all the kind words! the beard was so fun to wear! It looks all scratchy but it was amazingly soft! and it is lined with fleece so it was soft on the inside too! the only bad part was it was kinda warm and it had the tendency to shed because everyone kept feeling it lol. One gut even called it majestic!  Cheesy I told my boyfriend I was skipping a scarf this winter and was going to wear the beaard instead lol
