Emmie’s lion costume

So Emmie needed a costume for the school chorus (she was the lion in The Lion Sleeps Tonight) and I was asked ever so nicely by her to make it (I was the only parent supplying a costume, all of the others were already owned by the school.)

Anyway, here is the result! (I actually made this over Spring Break, why yes I am way behind in my blogging!)

I made the mask by covering a black mask from Party City with fur, and then I hand Painted the markings on the eyes with just acrylic craft paint in white, beige, gold, and black 
Here she is trying it on at home.
And finally, at school on the big night!
