Bubo scandiacus: My Snowy Owl Costume
Happy Halloween! This year I am (well, was- I work tonight) an owl.
But a different one this time.
I followed much the same plan-of-attack as for the Great Horned Owl costume, only with slightly nicer fabric. There’s a dress, sewn from Simplicity 9508, and a set of wings with knitting-needle tips, and a feathered headdress, and the mask. I added some tights this time (there are yellow tights for the Great Horned Owl costume; and a new, nicer dress too).
At one point, leaving a party, I had the mask off, and some drunk man yelled “Are you from Narnia?” It didn’t take long after that for my friends to decide that, while I was not a Narnian creature, I was from Hogwarts. And thus I became Hedwig for the rest of the night.
Should I have occasion to throw together a couple’s costume at some point, someone’s going to get stuck as Harry Potter.
Did you make your costume this year? What were you?
