|The costume concept was first a gray wolf - pirate - prince. I choose the pirate costume (Simplicity 4923) pattern and modifed both the coat and the vest to suit my ideas. We then decided to make the wolf BROWN and I will use the gray pattern coat for the silver prince.|

|The Silver/gray prince||Still needs the trim - I'll be gluing it on with fabric tak rather than ironing it on.||A close up of the lace at the collar|
the lace at the sleeve - it was just easier and cost effective to make these and put them on a plain white shirt than to make an entire fancy shirt.
The mask with just craft foam - I colored it digitally to figure out how I wanted it to look.
The back of the mask
|After paint... I still need to varnish.||eventually it will be glued to the fur...||After careful consideration, I decided the mask needed more detail.|
|So I added some gold paint||And some black brows and markings||And my son Joey insisted he needed teeth or else he was just a puppy|
|This is the first mask fitting on the actor who will wear it||It's a bit lopsided||But it does fit his face well.|
|The height of the color seems to work well with the right side of the mask||We didn't push it doen on his head enough, compared to the photo just above this one.||The left side needs some attention... and I may want to add some fur under the 'ponytail'|
|Here is one of the boots, thigh high.||other side. We choose a brown top for the style and to match the costume color better.||front... I may have to redo the top to go over more of the shoe|
|The toppers are attached with velcro||This makes them reversable for another look if they were to be used for another show||It hooks in the back to keep the topper from flapping about|
|To get in and out easier, there is a zipper on the inside and a hooke and eye.||Elastic keeps it secure to the dance shoes||But the lace up just looks so cool...|
