This is the Leafeon costume that our son wanted to make for last year's social, with no minutes and two leaves short he finished it for this year's social. My Mum made the suit, and it was a group effort, but our son made the shoes and gloves, and he is really good at sewing. He did the two toned ears and tail. I bought the material from Spotlight and the pattern, which was a penguin originally. Mum adapted it. She bought fabric stiffener and florists wire. My husband bought the brown and the light polar fleece on another trip to Spotlight, which is 1 1/2 hours away. So lots of thought and planning has gone on. We even sent measurements and clothes of our son to Mum so she could get the sizing right. It wasn't the largest size even though our son is about 6' tall.
The material for the eyes was from the op-shop and coloured with textas.
