Raven Costume

Our stark yet stylized bird costume is easily put together with just a few simple embellishments attached to an ordinary black hoodie. The hooked beak is made of stiff black felt, as are the mischievous eyes. Feathery fringe sewn on the arms creates tufted wings; feathers arranged around the eyes give the raven a tousled look.
