Cosplayer Melfina > Costume of Horo from Spice and Wolf
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- The outfit was pretty straight-forward for the most part, but it was interesting making the wolf ears and tail since I've never attempted to make either before. I used Wonderflex for the ears, which was great since I could just heat it up and curve it however I wanted. Then I hot-glued the fur on top of that - I used brown with cream for the tips and a mirabou boa for the inner fluff - and glued them to a copper wire which slips into my wig.
I'm not entirely happy with the tail, and would like to find a longer fur to make it out of, so it looks more realistic and wolf-like and less like a plushie tail. Places online always seem to have a "fox red" or straight brown fur, and I don't like either for Horo. Horo's tone has always seemed, to me, to be a warm-toned light-medium brown, so I'm very picky with getting the color to match what I have envisioned.
The little wheat pouch is made up of individual 1"x1" red and light pink squares that I sewed together in a patch-work-like way, and is strung with suede string.
