The colours are not the true colours, the light in my house is not that good of an evening. I have been hand sewing all the felt shapes to this dress which i itself is a gathered material around the waist of a long sleeved top.It will have one long sleeve covered and the other sleeve will be taken off.
I have it in the sitting room on top of a cat play equipment cube on top of a bed side table.
The colour of the fabric is white, that just show how bad the colour is in lighting in the room.

Fox headbands just need the ears hot glued into place.

Completed Otter headbands.
Fox ears. white and brown fur fabric. I will be making 3 pairs of these to go onto headbands. Yesterday was drafting and cutting out fabric. Today i will be sewing them all together and putting them onto headbands.
The same thing for rabbit ears. These will have a channel in the sides for pipe cleaners so that they will stand upright.
Deer ears. 3 sets.
Deer tails. 3 sets. These will have a pin sewn in the back to attach to the costume.

Now will be making Skunks, rabbits, otters, deers, foxes and squirrels headbands and tails. then i have owl wings, beaks and headbands and woodpecker wings, beaks and headbands. Luckily only 3 of each of these then back onto costumes.
I have 23 sets of Billy Goat headbands. Half of the horns are made out of a skirt i bought from an opp shop in England a couple of years ago. The rest are made of felt, both will be a bone colour.
These are the ears. Also fabric i bought from England at the same time. Plush curtain fabric. The inner ear is light brown and the outer ear is dark brown also a plush fabric.
The colours are not as they are in real life, the lighting in doors is not that great today, the dark brown looks blue in this picture and the bone colour looks blue.
Today i have been working on tails. The first one is the skunk tail pattern pieces.
First draft. Side view. The tail will be have a belt loop to be worn around the waist. The final tail will be black with a white gusset strip down the centre.
