My daughter and I were in Hobby Lobby one day when we saw his amazing unicorn costume worn by a teenager. My daughter wanted a costume just like it so of course she turns to me to make her one. lol  I had my doubts that I could do something so awesome but I gave it a go. I searched for patterns everywhere online but could not find any tutes on making a unicorn head piece. So, I made it up myself just by looking at a few other head pieces online. 

I don't have any in between photos of the making of the hat as I was in a rush to get it made in time for Halloween. I was stitching until minutes before her party.

All I did was cut out a hat piece out of fleece and fur. Sewed them together. I made a horn out of silky fabric and stuffed and used thread to make the lines/indention around it. 

I took 7 feather boas and braded them and hand stitched them to the hat.  I cut out ears and stuffed them and hand stitched them to the hat too.

I made the fur legwarmers and attached them to an exisiting white pair my daughter had so I didn't have to add elastic and just hand stitched them on. (remember, I was running out of time. ) Wink  Then, she wanted cuffs so we just cut out a couple pieces and I stitched them up.

The tail was the leftover part of the mane and I just used a hair band to hold it together and then used a carbomer to attatch to her shorts.

That's it, nothing special but it truly was a challange and I had fun making it and my daughter loves it so much. She will wear it when she goes places, not just for Halloween.
