I made a sleeve for puck to wear on which ever arm he chooses. We had some costuming issues with him. Had to change his outfit at the last second as nothing would fit him. This was originally planned to go with a different outfit but Puck was to slender to wear the other one. So now it goes with this one. I used grommets also it could be taken on and off easily and it is lined with felt to make it comfortable to wear and not be itchy. I did some hand embroidery, blanket stitching around the felt leaves at the top to hold the two layers together and to add a little more detail with shades of green to that area. Also if the wrist band got twisted on the arm the arm could still bend at the elbow and not be uncomfortable.
I had originally planned more feathers but decided they would get damaged so close to the body on a moving part like an arm. So I saved them for Oberon King of the Faries's crown (which was the hardest thing for me to make). Yes I am saving that for last as with his wings the second hardest thing I made for this play.

I didn't have much to do with this costume all I had to do was add feathers to the crown. But it did add a little something to the overall look. Up-close you can see the band that holds the feathers but from a distance like the audience not noticeable so it should be fine. I used mono-filament threads so you can't see how it is stitched to the crown. My oldest daughter is wearing it in the top two photos.
Here is Titania She had her wings already so this is her whole costume minus shoes, hair and makeup.
Here is Peasblossom in Greens and whites. I was running out of greens and whites at this point in the game I would have liked it to have more flowers.
This is Peasblossom ( once again this was fitting day so they are not in complete costume. So please ignore the lack of wings and the addition of shoes and socks.

This one made by my middle daughter
My oldest daughter loves origami. Over the years I have jumped over many little pieces of folded paper. In the last 1 1/2 to 2 years the other daughters have started to love origami and kirigami. Which means more little pieces of paper to jump over.
