Maid Marian Costume with Faux Fur Application Tips
When you hear people talk about cosplaying as a Disney princess, they’re usually not talking about Maid Marian from Robin Hood. The memorable fox was a partner to Robin Hood and helped him out of sticky situations. Given the fact that she’s covered in fur, I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to tackle the look. Redditor JDN87 was responsible for this rendition of the character and offered some insight on how she made her face look furry.
I bought fake fur (which I also used for the tail, not pictured) and cut rows of it off and laid it down with liquid latex on the fox face (made out of a gelatin mix).
She said it took a while, but it was fun. It’s a method to consider using when you want to add some fur without going full on furry.
