My Halloween costume for 2012 is the Bi-Polar Bear. The Bi-Polar Bear is one of my roller derby aliases, and I've been waiting all year to make this costume. I took my inspiration from a variety of sources, including Ruben Ireland's work and these Gloomy Bear arms and hat.



I looked at the pictures of the arms and hat to get an idea of how to draft the patterns. The head and arms are furry fleece and polar fleece. The claws are pleather. The eyes and nose are polymer clay. The cape is satin with marabou trim, with polymer clay bear paw brooches. The name was machine embroidered by a friend.



The feet were so huge they felt kind of like wearing swim flippers, so it made running around pretty... interesting.



Anyway, thanks for taking a look, your questions and comments are welcome.
