A collaboration between myself and my sister (the designer), this pair of costumes presented the challenge of making cartoon-y tails, wings and ears.
The ears are made of foam, covered in fabric and sewn directly into the wigs. The tails are made of pipe insulation tubing, with a wire frame to make them posable. They are built into a belt structure to attach them. The wings are also covered foam, but built into the back of each apron. They are also over a posable wire structure.
