Pink Panther costume was made from a pattern I bought years ago. I used embroidery and felting techniques on the head and face. The ears have wire to stand up. The mittens are threaded through the sleeves on a ribbon to keep them from being lost, like your mom use to do when you were a child. The body zippers on at the back and is very comfortable. It can be a little warm but the fur breathes nicely. The tail hangs just the right length for being appropriately true to the Pink Panther character. Every one wants to hug you in this costume and it makes you giggle to wear it out and about the town.
Pattern or design used: Simplicity or Butterick (Don't have the pattern handy, sorry)
