I gave myself the whole month of October to do this, but I still didn't quite finish in time for Halloween. These pictures were taken November 11.
Meet Sam Sprinkles (TM).
It's a cardboard mask, with cotton and fur fabric glued to it. Black and white face paint around the eyes. I would have been done with it sooner, but I spent the first two weeks of October making Sam's legs.
No, the legs aren't done.
But by next year, the whole thing will look GREAT.
