here's a photo of us at the Texas renaissance festival

renfest satyr family by Kimbosauruss, on Flickr

This year I decided my husband just HAD to be a satyr/faun. For once he actually agreed to wear a costume I made, I figured I might as well take advantage and do a family theme costume like I've been wanting. I looked at DOZENS of different tutorials, but for the most part went with http://youtu.be/vRMIo-lPp_8 for the way to do the padding. I tore apart shorts we all had for the top of the legs and for the bottom, I added two inches around the tracing of our legs with padding.


Billy and I before the halloween party by Kimbosauruss, on Flickr
My husband and I had a party the Saturday before Halloween and it was too cold for me to wear the corset I customized. He's braver than I am obviously  Roll Eyes
My crayola model magic hooves didn't make it through the night so next day I had to redo mine and start my daughter's costume. I have a procrastination problem obviously. This time I made our hooves out of polymer clay like my husband's.

Unfortunately, she lost her hooves as soon as we stepped out of the car. On top of that, my husband's broke off at the last house we trick or treated at.
So I redid all the hooves this time out of paper mache and added the tail to my daughter's costume hoping to take better pictures at renfest, but those plans got cancelled on me. So you get pictures of the baby satyr in the living room!

Mine and my daughter's shirts are store bought and her horns are from renfest. Everything else I made. Hopefully, I can update with pictures with my leafy corset and the new, less wonky horns I made for my husband.
Thanks for looking  Cheesy

I can NOT say how much I love this. Can I ask where you got the furry fabric? This is absolutely stunning and probably my favorite family-theme-costumes that I've ever seen!  Grin

Thank you very much!  Cheesy
I think all of it besides the gray on the bottom of my legs was from jo-ann fabrics. I bought the gray from www.crscraft.com/
