We went as Annie the Dark Child and her demonic teddy bear, Tibbers - characters from the video game League of Legends.
Annie and Tibbers
Cutting and Styling the Wig
I built the head and paws of the bear myself over hours and hours of evenings and weekends, and the hubby designed and made the body of the bear. We were drowning in craftiness...and loose fuzz from the many yards of fur fabric! The Tibbers costume ended up weighing a ton and was about 120 degrees inside even out in 30 degree weather.

Wire and Fur Ears
Aftermath of the Build
Why am I posting about this on a primarily athletic related blog? Aside from the geeky coolness of these costumes that I just had to show off, the hubby said that I could call this cross training. With the work he did to walk around town in that costume, he's right!
Everyone loves to hug a teddy bear...even an evil one!
