Re: October POTM Contest

Haha, the only costume Kiwi wears for Halloween is his traditional pumpkin-goo 'costume' He likes to "help" (i.e. practically climb into the cavity of) our annual jak-o-lantern as he merrily munches it (he loves pumpkin).

Can't wait to see everyones birds in costumes! This is going to be a most adorable contest

Re: October POTM Contest

For anyone looking, Flight Quarters has a couple of hats and some Halloween type sweatshirts and stuff. Dunno where you could get.. costume costumes though.

Edit: Because I just noticed... you think it more likely to get a costume on the hawk than the CAG. I love it! We really need a smiley of a little happy face rolling on the floor laughing.

Re: October POTM Contest

How many birds will actually allow a costume being put on?! I guess birds who will wear a harness or flight suit would be good candidates.

I have an idea for those birds who wear a flightsuit or harness... build a costume by using the harness as the frame, and sewing costume pieces onto it.

I have a super cute idea for Griffin, and I won't say what it is right now, but it would only be something around his head. It would be going under his chin behind the beak and all around like a head band. Ooh I can see it now, SO cute!! Problem is, I'd be surprised if he'll let me do it. He does usually allow my fingers around his face, but a foreign object might not go over so well. If he doesn't, then maybe I can try Robin, but he really freaks out over foreign objects near his body. I think Griffin would be cuter though, since he has more of a baby face. Raven, forget it. Raven doesn't even like my hands touching him (and I got him as a tame hand fed 4 month old baby!) Wish me luck with Griffin! I need to figure out how to make it, then hope he doesn't draw blood as I try to put it on.
