'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)]

Finished for the most part with my Faun, just need to tweak a few things on the hooves and then I am good to go~!…

I absolutely love how this looks and I have actually been trying to figure out the best way to make the thigh parts with the fur. I did look back in the pervious comments and see that you posted your "How-To's" so thank you so much for that~! Can't wait to finish up my faun cosplay and enjoy all the future uses of it!

I don't know it you have remade the legs yet with the acrylic paints, but there was a different tutorial that used the paint and didn't thin it out, instead she brushed the fur while it was drying so there was no clumps of paint and fur. Suppose that would work also?

I haven't restarted the leg fur yet, but that sounds like it could definitely work. I'll have to try a sample of both methods and see which works best. I'm trying most to keep the softness of the fur post-paint application.

Well, I will be starting on my faun's legging today, so I will be sure to take pictures of the process with the acrylic paint and post them. Please check them out and tell me what you think when I do~!

I'm trying to make a Satyr costume similar to yours, especially the legs/hooves, and I was wondering: How did you get the heel off of the shoes without destroying the entire shoe?
zacpfaff Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
I used a grinding tool and cut into the heel until it came off, then sanded down the ground spot and painted over it.  the heel is essentially made of plastic with 2 or 3 long metal nails running through it.  You could also use a saw to cut through, the grinder is just faster.  Wear safety goggles, when you start to grind through the nails they WILL spark.
