    Not much sewing. Mostly tacked the boa to the tshirt with big globs of hot glue.

    the way it is put together is. I put a t-shirt over a turtle neck. I sewed the t-shirt bottom to the turtleneck bottom and then stuffed pilow filling inbetween. once done I glued 6 boa's to the t-shirt. (To help I put the costume on a 5 gal bucket before I glued it on)

    I am going to make wings later. I need two more feather Boa's but they cost $9 each. I got carried away. My original Idea was the hat with some feathers on her butt.
