 We finished Cory's costume - the Black Mage from the video game Final Fantasy I. After making the robe the other night, we worked on the hat and mask. Cory got some felt, which we glued to a straw hat to make it the right color. We formed the peak, shaped it and glued it in place, too. It actually worked out great!
He had purchased a black pull-over mask which has fabric you can see through, then we cut out the eyes from yellow gauze and glued them in place. He can see through it all pretty well, at least well enough to get around! The fleece robe will live a second life as a warm, comfy snuggy!
This is how the Black Mage appears in the game.
