This costume is good for Halloween as well a Renaissance faires.

Tolkien in Lord of the rings had tree monsters called ENTS. This is basically what you will be.

The costume will end up being about 8 feet high to the top of the leaves. Having a wrangler always helps, if you can find a friend with a less restricting costume to shoo away drunks, kids, and touchy people your life is much easier.

Basic tools like hole punch, scissors, glue gun, nuts and bolts, carpet knife jigsaw with metal blade, drill, and all the other things anyone attempting an epic costume will already have.

It is scary AND beautiful. I want to sit underneath your branches and read a book but keep my eyes on you all the same. Great Job!
