One of my favs, but so obnoxious to wear!

The coat is made of fleece, with a pretty improvised pattern and after inspiring myself from ponchos lol!
Same goes for the shoe covers.
The paws are stuffed with plush toy/pillow stuffing. 2 bags worth!

Ears and paw motifs (which are zigzag stitched on) are felt.

The tail is made of two colors of faux fur. That was hell to sew for my old and brave sewing machine >.>

The braids are each made of 180 individual strands of carefully cutted yarn, in 2 different shades (one part banana, two parts cream). Cutting the yarn and braiding them took about 3 hours of work each.

The braid and tail holes are painted curtain rings.

The giant zipper was bought here: http://gear.orgxiii.org/
The zipper slider is foam board with one layer of craft foam for the detailing.

The mask is made of papier mâché with hand tinted sheets of plexiglass for the eye holes. The smile was made of two layers of craft foam; one for the general shape and the other for all of the teeth I individually cut for a more 3D look.

Big project, I'd love to enter it in a Masquerade but I think it'd be too dangerous to go on stage in it... The eye holes tend to fog up when I breathe.
