Snow leopard costume - thumbnail

This was my snow leopard costume for 2005. I threw a Halloween party for my co-workers, with games and everything - it was a lot of fun! Originally I planned to make my own foam latex prosthetic, but that didn't quite work out and I wore this one I bought from Lyonshel instead. (It was a blank cat prosthetic, I did the makeup.)

I did make the ears, paws and tail for this one from scratch though, out of some irresistably gorgeous faux snow leopard fur I found at a JoAnn's craft and fabric store. The outfit was part of my drow character's costume at the Heartland Games in 2005.

A friend from work and her husband showed up for the party on their motorcycle, dressed as bikers, complete with tattoos! They were kind enough to let the furry hostess play on the bike a bit. The picture is a little blurry, but I still love it. (And yes, the hand-paws are missing - Ignore that!)

Werewolf costume - thumbnail

Just a spur of the moment werewolf prosthetic I created from rubber latex to wear to work in 2003. I bought a blue polo shirt that looked similar to the shirts at work, and ripped it all over to make it look like claw marks. The ears were woochie prosthetics, the muzzle I made myself.

Princess Mononoke costume - thumbnail

This was an effort at a costume of San, from Mononoke Hime. It's mostly finished, but it's not really something I have much of a desire to wear, so I never really finished it.

This is how the mask looks when turned up to show San's face. She's also got some tribal markings on her face in the movie; I was going to add those on with makeup.

Fairy costume - thumbnail

A fairy costume, half just thrown together, that I wore to the Renaissance Festival. The ears impressed the heck out of everyone... (They were just the Woochie brand you can get at Party City around Halloween)

A close-up. I got my face painted (oh, and a bit sunburned, too...) at the festival. I thought the flower headband was cool, though! It was just a crocheted band of yarn with those little flowers and stuff braided in...

Angel pose! (Don't ask.)

Cheap Pikachu costume - thumbnail

Okay, the costumes except for mine and Julie's are all pretty much random, I think. Julie is dressed as James, and me as the amazing $3 evil Pikachu, both from Pokemon. On the top, from left to right, is Rachel, Julie, Erin, and Shannon, then on the bottom is me and the non-dressed-up Jessica. (Honestly, I've never felt so... yellow in all my life!)

That's me on the right, dressed as Kaoru. On the left is Julie-chan, dressed as Kenshin. Both characters are from the series "Rurouni Kenshin".
