This was my first entry and my first finished art project in quite some time. I was so thrilled to do it and so delighted with the outcome, that I wanted to share it with everyone!  Since I'm a newbie at all of this, you may have to follow the links to see the pictures.



Spread your wings, my little one! I really took this costume and flew, adding tiny felt feathers all over the wings (just felt sewed onto a yellow t-shirt), the tail, and the head-piece (more felt on a few re-purposed dollar-store finds). The duck feet were a stroke of inspiration: car-wash mitts put on her feet!



Shake your tail feather, for sure. I want you to be able to enjoy the full-feathered fun of this ensemble. I made the tail so fluffy that it forced her to waddle like a duck.



Here's the Duck in Action. This gives you the full effect.



You can get an appreciation for two elements of the costume here: a) how fluffy that tail is and b) how well it held up to an afternoon and evening of candy-fueled activity!
