Here’s the story behind our beautiful Satyr costume. We always make my daughters costumes and try to top ourselves the next year. This year my daughter actually wanted to be Poison Ivy which I was pretty excited about, but, my older daughter wanted to be a centaur for Halloween. We were not sure how well she would be able to get up stairs to trick or treat and didn’t want her to miss that part of trick or treating. So, we decided to do the Satyr costume instead. We kinda talked my other daughter into doing this idea with her as well. They are 4 years apart, but are like twins and have to do everything together.
We used Tin foil, lots of tine foil, to shape the horns for her headpiece. Then, we put latex over them. We used flowers and beads for sparkles, then used hot glue to make designs on the horns. Then, we painted them and attached them to a headband.
We used a yoga mat for her belt. To shape the legs, we used old jeans and foam and hot-glued fur to the jeans. We used LOOOOTS of hot glue and burnt fingers lol… We made her top out of fur. Next, we used old heels that took forever to find because she has such small feet and we molded putty to shape the hooves to top it off. That was definitely something that everyone loved.
We tried several different ideas for her Satyr costume staff, but ended up using a long stick from her grandmas vase and wrapped all different flowers around it. I made extra sure to make everything lightweight for comfort.
Everyone loved this and said it was the most creative of the night! People took pictures and asked where we got our costumes from :) We live in a small town and everyone starts asking us in August what are plans are for the new year and say they wait Halloween night to see what my girls will be.
