mr. fox from wes anderson's fantastic mr. fox. (sorry for the over saturated photo - struggling for good light over here this morning.)
the whole thing cost me about $25. all the clothing: corduroy blazer, pants, white short-sleeved button up and brooks brothers tie (score at $1.99) was thrifted. the $5 mask came from the zoo gift shop, and originally depicted a red panda, which was close to a fox but i wanted to be more accurate so i painted over it. i made the tail using another thrift store sweater by cutting off one sleeve, filling with packing peanuts (recycling at its finest), sewing the ends shut, then painting the tip white. i just tied it with some yarn to the back belt loop on my pants and it looked great.
then i honed my sound effect craft with mr. fox's "click click, whoo-oo" whistle thing. and said "what the cuss?" a lot.
