Getting in your head

I'd like my current costume to have a rather close-fitting neck. My last costume had a zipper closure up the back of the neck, and as a novice seamstress I found it a little tricky, though it worked out in the end. I'm wondering what your experiences are with different methods of getting in and out of your heads. For example, I used a very fine zipper and it had a tendency to get stuck when fur got caught in it. However, because it was so small, it was easy to conceal beneath the long pile fur. What works well for you? What doesn't? If you wanna be really helpful, comment saying why you chose the option you did.

Question about Hooves.

I'm looking to make a satyr-type costume for the upcoming RenFaire. Does anyone have any good tips (or websites) on how to make realistic looking hoof footwear? I found one website, but I'd like to browse, and hear from others on their techniques. Thank you :D xo
