Nothing says Halloween like costumes from cheesy 80s childrens movies!  This build took some patience and a lot of spray glue (I pulled a muscle in my forearm from all the spraying!) but Falcor rides again!

Materials for Falcor:

Wire fencing
Wire cutters
Duct Tape
Newspaper/paper bags
1 yard of white fleece
2 yards of white fur
2 Styrofoam balls
Black and Brown Acrylic paint
Red/tan felt

Materials for Atreyu:

Suade shirt 

Step 1: Creating Falcor's "Skeleton"

-Use garden fencing to create Falcor's Skeleton.  First, cut enough fencing to create a cylinder which will become Falcor's body.  Make sure it is a bit wider than your hips.  When you cut the wire leave enough stay wire so you can wrap the ends to the structure to connect the pieces.  

-Cut a hole in the top and bottom of the cylinder. This is where you will be stepping into the body.  It should be easy to pull up onto your hips but still snug.
