The Minotaur Costume!

There! It's pretty much done now! Not only was I working on the house, but I was also working on finishing the Minotaur head. Here Rich is modelling it. It's mostly papier mache, sheep and bear skin....that's right, I said bear. Black bear to be exact. I aquired a skin last fall from a shop that was going out of business. I made some of the claws into necklaces.......but I digress.
Here's a three quarter back shot. He was a very good model, doing what he was told. Good Minotaur. Now we just have to wait another 5 months before he can wear it.
I'm thinking of dressing as Medusa.

that's incredible!...I love how you get into things (dollhouse, costumes) and make them what you want (that includes directing your model)
..a job well done...cant wait to see the Medusa

that is terrific Suzanne
one day we'll find the bones of a minotuaur stuck
in the shark jaws of a stucco basement wall.

Have you ever seen the movie Time Bandits?? The minotaur costume really reminds me of the fight scene with Sean Connery!

I found you because you have Integral Trees listed as a favorite book. :) Me toO!
