I was asked to make some "Nativity Animal" costumes for the children's ministry Christmas
performance at my church, and they wanted about 60. Yeah...that says SIXTY.
Right away, it was decided that masks were what needed to happen.
Anyway, here are the pictures of the different animal masks I made.
I hand drew all the templates for these and after spending many hand-cramping hours
working on these, I figured that I should share them.
Don't mind the crappy it-was-too-dark-and-I-had-to-use-the-flash photos. It was 4:30 in the morning when I finished these and I knew once they were delivered I would not be able to get pics.
Cow, Camel, Donkey, Dove, Sheep, and Pig.
All pretty normal "Nativity animals", right?
Owl, Wolf, Duck, Koala, Raccoon and Penguin.
Weren't all of these at the Manger scene?
Cheetah, Chick, Fawn, Polar Bear, Bunny and Monkey.
I'm pretty sure a couple of these could have been there, right?
Fox, Panda, Skunk, Zebra, Goat and Mouse.
Do you think maybe they wondered "What the FOX say"?
(Yeah, I went there)
Moose, Walrus, Peacock and Hippo, along with a picture of the finished stack of 60 masks and
a selfie at 4:30am (a few hours before the performance) when I was FINALLY done.
...and then things just got weird.
The performance was adorable and the kids(and parents) loved the masks so much that all of this was totally worth it. A labor of love. And now that the performance is done, the masks will go into the Sunday school dress up box for weekly fun. Totally worth it.
If you think I'm done, you're wrong. Now I get to make some for MY kids for Christmas.
Let me know which ones are your favorites so I can do those tutorials first.
FYI, probably not going to happen before Dec 25th.
