Halloween 2009. The woman that I work for wanted to be an Owl for Halloween this year. I started by crafting the mask in paper mache & then covering it in feathers. The beak is made from Sculpey. The dress was one that she had & I added Strips of feathers with Velvet ribbon around the sleeves & the lower part of the dress. I also made 3 feather ruffles to be work around her neck. Finally I embellished her boots with more feathers. It took about 20 hours to do the whole thing.
