love Halloween and I think it should be about creativity so I always
make my own costume. I wanted to be some kind of animal, and I love owls
– so I finally decided on being a barn/forest owl.
(Good job to the person who guessed that on my other post 😉 )
For this one, I found a brown long sleeved top and a brown skirt. I
sewed them together into a one-piece (I couldn’t find a long sleeved
brown dress). I bought a piece of furry fabric at fabricland to make the
and cut into the shape of wings. I sewed them to the outfit, and then
the fun began.
I had ordered 800+ feathers off ebay, and bought some white ones
from Walmart. Thus began the process of handstitching about half of them
on. Once I had the bottom layer of the wing done, I glued the rest on
the top to create more fullness. For my shoes I glued feathers on the
front, which actually didn’t affect my walking for the night.
I backcombed my hair and shoved a few feathers in to really add to the dishevelled owl look.
I bought a plain mask from Michaels craft shop and hand painted it
like the face of an owl. I added two feathers to the “eyebrow” and also
made a little beak out of paper !
