What a fabulous penguin you are. I think your photos are priceless.

I LOVE it! I really must buy that pattern, but I'm not sure I'd ever have the nerve to wear it in public. Cool to you!

Thanks, xstpenguin, I do think you have to be in touch with your inner penguin (which I think you might be?) to get the most from this costume (or else be two years old or so). If you have been thinking that you need to work on your waddle, this pattern can definitely be of help....

Hey, kkkaty, this looks great. I also agree with all you said. It is a great costume for cold climates. Looking forward to the skiing photo!

Thanks for the details about what fabrics you used for which parts. And please post a picture when you wear it skiing.

I love this , and your review was quick and to the point I love that too! Wow and you were even able to get special effects with the snow can't beat that.
