Intro: SABRE-TOOTHED TIGER
This frightening costume was made from a second hand costume and an old bicycle helmet. The face was shaped with hardwire cloth, wired to the helmet and covered with paper mache. The eyes and nose were shaped from modeling clay and wired to the helmet. The large teeth were cut from 1" x 2" wood trim and shaped with a file. The ends were tapered into a 3/8" dowel shape to be mounted to the helmet. The small teeth were cut from a 1/4" dowel and shaped with a file. Holes were drilled in the helmet and the teeth were secured with glue. The large teeth were also attached with wire. The mask was painted with acrylic paints. The whiskers were cut from old plastic packaging, poked through the paper mache and secured with glue. GRRRRRR!
