About this Costume
Construction Details:
Hair ($30) - Long pumpkin orange wig from ebay seller, Angel-wig. I trimmed the bangs.

Ears ($1) - I bought a stuffed dog from garage sale and took it apart to use the fur to make the ears. I followed beetle91's sewing fox ears tutorial on youtube. I also added tufts of feathers onto the edge because all foxes have white tufts of fur coming from inside their ears. I sewed 2 hair clips onto the bottom of the ears.

Tail ($50) - Etsy store
Edit Dec. 2011 ($5) - Sewed long white fur onto the short fur.

Top - Made the top using broadcloth.

Pants - I altered some black pants I already owned.

Small red bag - I hand sewed the bag from my brother's old clothes.

Red slash ($1) - I used cloth from a red curtain that I bought from a garage sale.

Jewel - Made with modeling clay and painted with acrylic. Attaches to slash with a hair clip.

Cloak ($5) - I brought brown cloth from Wal-mart and sewed the cloak.

Shoes - Brown shoes that I already owned

Eyes ($25) - Dolly+ Red lens from pinkyparadise.com

Total Cost: $93

Debut: Mechacon 2011 in New Orleans, LA
Personal Thoughts:
Holo is my favorite female anime character. She is clever, witty, and she doesn't depend on the lead male, Lawrence, for everything. She even saved Lawrence a number of times. I also love her English accent in the dub. Even though Spice and Wolf isn't mainstream, I was still recognized and complimented at conventions. This is probably my most comfortable costume.
