I think there need to be more 'obscure' mythical animals represented in costumes and masks, so I decided to dedicate three days to this kirin. I named him Khan, because I kept yelling out 'Khaaaaan!' when I got frustrated with it. It's cheap fake fur on a plastic mesh base, fleshed out with styrofoam to fill out the cheeks. I carved a styrofoam wreath base with my dremel into the horn, and covered it with paper mache. The 'hair' is black fleece, and the scale plating is done with fun foam, covered with acrylic paint. The whiskers are giant pipe cleaners.
