“If I Had A Gryphon” Props/Costume Ideas

Gryphon2

HERE IS A LIST OF COSTUMES AND PROPS YOU MIGHT MAKE OR BRING:

  • A copy of the book (we will have copies on hand as well)
  • Dress up like Sam – wear purple and orange striped socks, square black rimmed glasses, and an orange toque
  • Sam’s pet ‘hamster’ – don’t forget his fangs and wings
  • Sam’s book of mythological creatures
  • Dress up like, bring a stuffed animal/puppet or make a cutout prop of one of the many mythical creatures (there are so many options – you can always choose more than one)
  • Floss (normal size or go big) for your Manticore’s teeth
  • Candy corn to shine your Unicorn’s horn
  • Mermaid hair brushes
  • Coloured streamers for water (Kracken) or fire (Phoenix)
  • Signs we can use during our parade – take a quote from the book or create clever ‘protest’ quotes like “Have your hugged a Hippogriff today?!”, “Phoenixes practice fire safety first!”, “Sasquatch have feelings too!”

Of course these are only a few suggestions. We welcome and encourage to use your creativity and imagination! * And we always have extra costumes and props on hand to share in case you forget.
