They have some sweet threads, and can probably make some with zebra print material if we have enough time....

Okay, I'm trying to be more creative with my costumes this year and make them myself. :shock:

I've checked the fabric stores in my area and I'm not finding what I want. Anyone have any leads on finding the super furry/fuzzy fun fur fabrics? Maybe its just Bham doesn't provide the selection I need but I know what I want, something that's fun and huggable! :DANCE: :DANCE: :DANCE:

Sorry, this just didn't seem right caged in parentheses so I had to fix it.
I was so about to message him directly and post up the picture of his proposal to give an example of what I'm talking about.

Way to go Tai!!! I found their Ugly Christmas Sweater link... now I'm shopping for things I don't need that aren't even for JamCruise! I guess some blame goes to vinceums, but his post only got me to their homepage before I went... SQUIRREL!!!
