I started Aden’s porcupine costume first and finished it last, but I got it done just under the wire before the Halloween dance on Thursday. (I expected to have all day Wednesday to work on it at my leisure, but I hadn’t factored in an ambulance ride.)
I made Aden a basic brown, fleece jumpsuit with a detachable back
piece and tail to glue quills to (in case we ever need to wash it). I cut the quills out of cushion foam on my bandsaw, and then spray painted them:
I haven’t seen any other porcupines, crocodiles, or thirteen-lined-ground-squirrels, so they probably won’t get lost in the crowds.
