OPTIONAL BLACK CLOAK:
Make cloak to the waistline to cover up winter jacket according to directions from lightweight cotton fabric or polar fleece.
|Directions:||Cut a jagged bottom in one of the legs of jeans.
Wear shirt, jeans and vest (if you like). Pin parrot onto shoulder (the beanie baby parrot is a bit heavier so takes a few more pins than a tp roll parrot does)
Draw scar over eye with black eyeliner (you can also add a bit of eyeliner "stubble" to the chin)
Measure black elastic around head. Cut felt into a circle. Fold in half over the black elastic. Attach with hot glue or stitching. Tie or stitch the elastic so it stays around head.
