do you work for hire? Sewing is a skill I don't have.

If this is just your first attempt, I can't wait to see what you can do once you are "practiced".

Nice job!

estimated cost and how tall is it?I had the blower so that didn't factor (yellow harbor freight one from a few years ago).
I bought 36 yards of black for $8/yard and used various 60% off and 50% off coupon ($3.2/yard and $4/yard) so approx $140. Then 14 yards of green @ 50% off so $56. Some scraps of red and white were about a buck and change. I have leftover fabric so it isn't $200. I could have planned it better but it would require more sewing. (Especially if I would have bought everything with the 60% off coupons. But the store kept running out and coupons expire).

We had a costume party/shoot at the photography studio I use. I had a little fun being on the other sided of the lens and my buddy took this one of me.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171102/4042cf110d0cac59c66d729af511a956.jpg
