I was inspired by the Care bear costume (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v626/karawood/DVC00084.jpg), and decided to make my own version for an upcoming halloween costme party--as a panda!

Here is my friend modeling:

The ears are a little crooked--my sister marked them for me while I was wearing it and after sewing them on according to the marks, I realized she didn't mark them right...

Thanks everybody!  I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you all!

I'm sad to say there is no pattern for the dancer, but it is pretty easy.  I made the heads by crocheting a ball for the head, a chain for the neck, and basically the same for the rest of the body--balls and chains, with a standard circle for the skirt.  I'm not sure if you can understand what I am talking about, but perhaps if you look at the pictures while you crochet you can get the idea.  I'll try to make a tut for the next item, that will be much easier to understand!  I'm working on characters from the Wizard of Oz right now, I just made the Scarecrow and Dorothy, and I'm now doing the Lion followed by the tin man.  I'll let you know when I'm done with them.

I had fun making a Little Bo Peep (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44645.0), so I thought I would make more crocheted figures.  I made a sort of French Aristocrat from the olden white-powdered wig days, but I haven't starched her skirt yet so she doesn't stand up.  With the Flamenco Dancer, the gold stitching was very sturdy and because I made her underskirt of it, she didn't need to be starched to stand up.  It holds up really nice.  I have a few more ideas so I might be posting more.

Various angles...

A little close up.

The camera really doesn't highlight the color very well... It's actually much more red rather than that funny shade of pink, and the gold doesn't look spotty at all.  But I think you get the idea.

If you were wondering, I weaved wire in her neck to support her head and I starched the skirt so she can stand on her own.

Up close on the front--head shot

Crochetted hem detail

The back view--notice the corset

And now the side.

My day was boring, but I found something fun to do!
