Thank you very much ladies! I appreciate all your kind comments :) To JEF, I used a paper towel between the fabric and fleece (I didn't have a press cloth handy). My iron was on level 4 and I used bursts of steam and tried to press it briefly. After letting the fabric cool, I checked to make sure it was secured, and if it wasn't, I went over it again with the iron. You're right, fleece definitely does *not* like the iron! The fleece on my costume was slightly discoloured, but you can only tell if you look really closely. Last year I made a Skittles bag costume and sewed the letters on by hand. I didn't have the patience for it this year! :)

I also thought it was color blocking. It is very creative. Nice job.

This is adorable. It actually just looks like a super cute dress on you - not costume-y at all. How on earth did you manage to use fusible web with fleece? I've melted fleece with my iron :(
