A recent email from a reader reminded me that I remade the classic Pink Lion costume way back in 2015. Whoops!
Pink Lion 2.0 (aka Pink Lion the Pink) is the silky tuxedo version of the dryer-singed original.
The new look features a shaggier, more luxurious mane, as well as a stuffed bowtie (he insists it’s all real). The gold zipper is replaced with a satin placket and gold buttons which is more formal that functional.
The pants have been remade in a lovely poodle minky (it’s technically called rosebud minky but whatever) with ankle tufts and a gold metallic waistband. Top and bottom are lined with pink satin. The new tail is sassier than ever!
I made an alternate set for this costume in 2016 that included a furry onesie, spandex manties, zipper mask, and a hood mane that exposed the back and chest. I like a modular costume wardrobe and now he has several options!
