  • (Felt is available in a 6 foot wide version for about $5 a yard from fabric stores)

Safety Tip:

  • Remember the safety tips from our DIY Page: ALWAYS be able to leap out of any costume immediately - in this case by clipping the pins that hold the Nori around your body so close to the edge that you could rip them out easily... (Always ask yourself: what if a bee gets in my costume?!?)
