Yesterday's project was to become a Fox in Socks for a party. Several of us were going as the collected works of Dr. Suess.
Step one - acquire 3 metres of fur fabric and half a metre of fleece
Step two - create socks for feet and hands. Over-think the socks so that they become the most intricate, design-heavy part of the costume. Make super-quick, super-cute wrist warmers.
Step three - using a tunic dress from the closet, trace out and estimate pattern pieces for (hopefully) a more flattering shaped costume
Step four - ears and tail... positioning is everything
Step five - add eyeliner where required, long sleeved t-shirt and stripy tights
