The pattern was easy to follow. I had a problem w ear placement, but otherwise turned out great! My daughter received a ton of compliments. She wore a baseball hat under it and the elastic band kept the mask in place, allowing her to run. I did substitute items I didn't have. I did not use foam or the mane. Instead I used heavy duty cardstock lined w felt (glued). The ears are stiff felt, the eyes are Dollar Store xmas ornament balls painted w nail polish, fabric elastic band was pierced thru the side of the mask to hold it in place, and used a braided hair extension glued to the top of the crown for the mane. My daughter loved it!!
