This is my first time creating a costume from an animated film. Also my first Disney character! I loved being Judy Hopps at events! Seeing all the children's faces light-up makes it worthwhile.
This costume was a mix of buying items and making things. I created the ears, tail, arm bands, knee pads, and body armor. I was mostly excited about creating the ears which is also my favorite aspect of the costume. I used cardboard, wire, felt, and fur to make the ears. I use EVA foam and magnets for the knee pads. I created my own patterns to create the arm bands and body armor.
