As Promised...Foxes

The foxes, and the evening, were pretty fantastic. (They made their own "squab giblet" treat bags.)
I think the tails were my favorite part.
We spent much of the afternoon filming scenes from the movie. (The line "I consider myself an athlete" is still playing on a loop inside my head.)
Trick or Treat was pretty awesome--when they got recognized (which happened maybe six times) as Kristofferson (Grace) and Ash (Annabelle), they were beyond thrilled; they were invited to a bonfire, chased by a wolf man, and given prizes for last year's costumes by a young couple who remembered the washer and dryer. They said, as they always do, that it was the best Halloween ever. Mission accomplished!

OH. MY. GOODNESS! So so fantastic and foxy. I so wish my two girls would think outside the box for Halloween. I just checked out your washing machines, and I have to bow to your Halloween prowess. Loved 'em and yes, would probably squeal if your two came to my door.

Absolutely fantastic! They look like they are having loads of fun... that was not an intentional reference to their costumes from last year :).

What great costumes! They must have been the best-dressed wherever they went. And the washer and dryer were pretty cool too.

How did you make those costumes?? My friends and I have been wanting to be the whole gang from that movie for the last couple years.

Melissa Crowe said...

I wish I could say there was an easy method! I found appropriate/approximate clothes at Good Will and altered them. I sewed the tails (and legs--attached directly to the shorts, like a kind of pant-leg extension) from a fake fir I got at Joann Fabric, and I glued piece of that fur to some plastic fox/wolf masks I got at Artist & Craftsman. Just a lot of hours!

Meleowyn said...

How'd you do the sock mask?

Melissa Crowe said...

I sewed it from one of my husband's old undershirts, cut the holes for the face parts, painted the toe and heal with fabric paint and stuck a cardboard cutout in the foot part above the head.
