ROAR! Just finished Baxter's lion Halloween costume
I knew I wanted to make Baxter a mane for Halloween, but I wasn't sure how to do it.
At first, I was looking for yarn. There was a beauty supply store next to the craft shop, so I went in and bought some hair weaves (one blond, one strawberry blond). The craft store only had white and black elastic, but I remember sewing pink and beige elastic to my ballet slippers, so I went to a dance shop and bought 4 feet of beige elastic to use as the base. I sewed the weaves together, then sewed them in circles around the elastic.
There are about six layers of hair on the mane as you see it.
