I love making dress-ups, this one was for my long suffering husband. We were going as the owl and the pussycat. We had a huge pea green boat made out of a huge packing box, that we walked in and carried. The cat costume was fairly standard, cat mask, tail and fur cuffs for my wrist and ankles. But the owl mask and cape was magic. The mask was built around a plastic mask with papier mache and then painted. The cape is just felt with marker pen easy, no hemming needed. But the shading of the marker pen gives it real dimension - I have put a close up in so you can see the detail.





Thanks,
Sarah

thanks Smiley, you can do some pretty cool effects with marker pen on felt. Anything that can be drawn can be put on the felt.

I'll have to try and dig some photos out - or convince him to wear it again:-). The pea green boat was 'played to destruction' by the children. I will see what i can do!
