So, I know many people have made this costume in the past (and mine is definitely inspired by those), but I've wanted one of my own for a while now. Well, here it is! It was quite an experience to make and I wish I had started earlier than I did because there was several late nights involved.

The pieces I made are the horns, top, legs, and shoe covers. The necklace was one I owned.



I used a pair of leggings as a base and hand sewed carved upholstery foam to them while worn, plus added fiber fill to the butt area (that was an interesting time haha). Then I taped up one leg to use for a pattern (idea for tape from http://www.komickrazi.com/costumes/tut3.html). Each leg ended up being 9 pattern pieces once I cut the tape apart.



The horns were stuffed fabric, tied up with thread, and wired so I could pose them and attach them to a headband. I love how they came out.



The only part I'm not totally happy with is the hooves. I didn't have the correct materials and didn't manage to make them cloven, but hey, better than just wearing the shoes.



The tail was definitely one of my favorite parts, and I kept getting compliments on my butt  Roll Eyes





I wanted the top to have as few seams as possible, as if I made it roughly from materials I could find in the woods. It worked out almost exactly like I wanted, so I was quite happy with that.





Thanks for looking! Comments, critique, questions are all welcome  Smiley

PS. So many awesome costumes already posted this year!

That is astonishing, an optical illusion that doesn't die even when you know how it was done... Well done!

Amazing! And thanks for sharing the process for the legs - a fawn just doesn't look right unless you get the legs!

You did a fantastic job--I love how the horns came out! Was it difficult to walk in the legs? ( I can't tell if they're bendable at the knees?)

Thanks everyone  Smiley

My knees are covered with foam padding that does bend when I bend them so it's not too difficult to walk in. I walk with my legs further apart and my legs get tired faster than usual though. It's the worst on stairs because of how bulky the legs are.

Im very amazed at how well done and shaped the legs are.  I've seen costumes like this before, but yours is by far the best I've seen.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Macgyver would be proud! all you need now is a flute/pitch pipe. Good job on the legs, I was expecting something involving stilts when I saw the first picture, your fawn legs seemed so very long. To end my post I'll simply barrow from 'Red Green' ~"If the women don't find you hansom they'll at least find you handy."

bonus points for the ducktape.
