This is my costume!  The yeti is my favorite imaginary creature, and I've been wanting to make a yeti costume for SO long.  I wanted to be sort of like a yeti trying to be a normal person, sort of like those cavemen Geico commercials haha, so I only made the mask and gloves so I could wear cool clothes along with it. Cheesy

These two pictures were before it was totally done, I still had to attach the fur to the mask part, but theyre the clearest photos I have of them.

Some party pictures!!

& process....

Gloves!!  Just traced my hands and added a bit of seam allowance, then chopped off half the fingers 'cause I like the look of hobo gloves.

Fleece on the palm side and long faux fur on the other. Cheesy

I started the mask with a foam gorilla mask I got off of ebay for $6-ish

5 coats of white fast drying house paint later!

I couldnt choose what colors to use at first as you can tell by all my scraps!  I used acrylic felt to do the details, and glued them down sooo carefully with hot glue.

Trying to figure out the fur!  This was my first time making the mask, so that pattern was edited over and over till I had it right.  I cut a hole right in the middle where the jagged lines are, and pushed the face through to the other side.

Took a lot of editing but I finally got it to fit!  I sewed and hot glued the mask to the fur around the face part, covering a lot of the huge forehead so it looked less like a gorilla.

Also, after halloween was over, I found a new use for the mask!

Creepy lampshade!

Hope you love it!  I had fun making it. Cheesy
