'Dima' Faun/Satyr Costume by zacpfaff 'Dima' Faun/Satyr Costume by zacpfaff
UPDATE!!! If you'd like some help making your own costume, PLEASE read through all of the comments on this image and the images related to this costume. I've added a bunch of commentary and linked some sketches and stuff that should help you out.


My Faun/Satyr Costume for my OC "Dima." 100% hand-made and worn at the Ren-Faire in Irwindale, CA on 05/06/2012.

I made pretty much every part of this outfit :

• Horns [sculpie/hot glue/acrylic paint/fastened to black elastic cord]
• Ears [fun-foam/red & blue thread(veins)/peach linen (for inner ear skin)/hot glue/cream colored faux fur (dyed with Rit for realistic coloring)/dark brown faux fur (to blend with hair)/)fastened to black elastic cord]
• Hemp Necklace [plastic bead (x3)/real ivory elk molars (x6)/brass bell]
• Loin Cloth [8'x1' black cotton/leather belt]
• Tail (not shown) [cream colored faux fur (dyed with Rit for realistic coloring)/dark brown cotton cord (as belt loop)]
• Thigh Fur [cream colored faux fur (dyed with Rit for realistic coloring)/1" black elastic strap (to secure to upper thigh)]
• Lower Legs [dark brown knee-high socks (with toes cut off)]
• Cloven Hoof Shoes (8" stiletto heels (with heels cut off)/.99cent store flip flops (cut up to make hooves)/metal screws & various metal elastic bits (to fasten hooves to shoes)/acrylic paint & hot glue (for color and texture)/dark brown faux fur (for above hooves)]

PLEASE VIEW THESE!

This is so amazingly fantastic, great job! I'm planning a faun costume of my own for the Faire in the fall and I had no idea how to do the hooves. This is the very best idea I've ever seen! I'm going to definitely try out this way. Thanks so much for sharing! Now it's just a matter of losing weight to look sexy enough to be a shirtless faun... Hehe!

Yay! More fauns!  Please send me a photo of your costume once you finish!  I'd love to see how it turns out.

I'll try and get around to cleaning up the hooves and posting a photo, they have a bit of faire-dust caked into them at this point :P

if you used flip-flops for the hooves, what did you make the base out of then?

I cut the hoof shapes out of flip flops, I bought a type of metal ribbon with holes in it at home depot (I think it's used in drywall work), and wired the flip flop bits to that. and fastened the whole thing to the shoes, like in this image:  i.imgur.com/kYpKO.jpg
