I made this Pink Lion costume last summer for Burning Man 2011. Lets just say it was quite a hit.

There was an entire night when he could only roar!

There is he is in front of our art car, the Sensatron!

My good buddy Tomaino approached me last summer and declared he wanted to be a lion for Burning Man. We found this amazing wolf-style faux fur, and it was love at first sight!

The pants and hood are both lined in white poly satin, cause I know how to make luxury.

The sequin bowtie is sewn onto the zipper pull. Unfortunately the weight of the fur was too much for the elastic waistband, so it quickly became apparent that gold suspenders would be necessary. And Im so glad that they were!

Hes quite charming with that furry tail of his.

Perhaps the best part is that hes a Thai massage therapist, and traded me amazing massages for the costume. Uh, yeah, it was awesome. Just wait till yall see what Ive made for him this year.

I love it.  My hub and I can't wait to go but we're waiting until our little one is a bit bigger.  She would have a blast!
