The details that he was INSISTENT on were as follows:
Brown Belly (last minute addition)
What you have to understand here is that this was the most random thing he could have asked for. We are not horse people. He does not have any horse toys. We don't watch horse shows. We live in the city. I don't understand. But I guess my job isn't to understand- its to sew. So I had to just accept my task and move the hell on. Haha!
The bodysuit is a Jalie footed pajamas pattern. I added a hood and the mane and tail. The mane was made with chunky yarn pulled apart to make that lovely crimped and fabulous coif. The tail was the same. And its has quite the swish...
"Shake Your Booty" was indeed being sung here.
The mask is by one of my favorite pattern designers, Oxeye Daisey on Etsy. Her patterns are fantastic. I used her dragon mask pattern last year for the boy's costume. They are the perfect finishing touch for any costume and they for sure turn heads. LOVE HER!!!
The hooves are just some felt sewn up...stray threads not included. Seriously those threads in that picture make me twitch. GAH. Speaking of things that make me twitch...the addition of that belly after the whole body suit was sewn up really threw off my white zipper choice. It's fine. It's fine. No really, it's fine. I'm still not actually convinced it's fine. TWITCH. But he loved it. I mean, look at this face..
Also, in case you were wondering, this horse costume has the ability to turn the wearer into an Earth bender...apparently
I hope you all had a great Halloween! If you're anything like me, you're looking forward to next year's costumes while getting the Christmas tree out and listening to Christmas carols. Only a few months to get that Christmas sewing done!
Stop Horsin' around y'all!
