I 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.
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 chest piece.
My wings were made of sheer fabric that I bought from fabric land 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 !

At the social and the bar, let's just say everyone knew where I had been. Feathers EVERYWHERE!

Happy Halloween everyone! :)
