here we go- this is about dying eggs, but you'd use the same things- some of those eggs look pretty bright pink to me!

Here is my new fantasy fairwear Monty Python The Knight's that say "NI"
The helmet is all sheet metal with hammered solid rivets a little heavy. 
Still looking for some nice reindeer alters.  Also using drywall stilts for the height.

I love that idea! And the mistress Camo!

I already have a my little pony skirt!

For a good skirt I have found that queen sheets work out much better, I used the simplicity ren skirt pattern. Or the belly dancer circle skirt works well.

That's awesome. Is it not uncomfortable to walk around on stilts all day, though?

Thanks for the comments.
I wore the stilts on three different half days the only problem was that they would work there way lose and going down steep hills, it helps to have a some one to hold hands with :) My legs would feel weird after walk around for the day but not to sore.  My wife was surprised; she has not seen the movie, by the number of people who would say "NI" and stop and ask for pictures. . That more then made up for the little soreness of the legs.  It was a lot of fun.

The tunic is made from a white sheet that I used two packs of Ritt dye on.
Still looking for the reindeer antlers. I'm checking on some sika ones.

Does it have to be reindeer, as in caribou? If it can be white tail deer, I know of a source.

Here I am as CAPT Bones, during Halloween Daze at PA Ren Faire.  Yes, that's me and I am still growing my left eyebrow back after taking the prosthetic off!

Thank you for your offer on the whitetail alters but I got some sika deer sheds of craigslist yesterday. What do you think?
