Last year she was the Grinch...this year the Lorax.  Things were made much more complicated by moving (the Army moved us during Halloween costume making time....not cool).  We didn't get our stuff until October 15th and I rushed to make an elf, Ironman and the Lorax in 15 days.  15 days and lots of hot glue gun blisters later....ta-da!



We went to a Boo at the Zoo and little kids would follow her around and ask to have their picture taken with the Lorax like she was a character at Disneyland...lol.
Here she is with a perfect trick or treat bag that I made for Christmas a while ago.



and a glimpse under the head...it's a pity to hide that cute face Smiley



And a close up of the head alone



I'll be posting a semi tutorial showing progress pics and materials used on the halloween costumes board as well as my Ironman and elf.
Thanks for looking...and voting? Wink
Happy Halloween!

Wow. That's...really impressive. I know it was a time crunch but you did a really good job on that. I look forward to being able to sink my teeth into a project that requires this kind of construction at some point because it looks really fun and the results are always so cool. She looks great.
