With pandemic fever sweeping through the country, the idea of a baby fox has been popular among fans.
But for some, the look was just a fancy way to dress up a baby.
(Adrian Wyld/The Globe and Mail)A baby fox and a costume are not two different thingsThe first time I saw one on TV, I thought it was just another fashion accessory, said Janet Zeman, a mom of two in Toronto who is obsessed with baby foxes.
She’s hoping to make a costume that she will wear to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The costume was created by a local company called Silicone Baby, which sells and sells baby fox masks.
It’s called a “baby fox mask” and is available online.
(Janet Zemen/The Guardian)Janet said she’s already been contacted by parents of other kids, who have been curious about her costume and wanting to know what the fuss was about.
I wanted to make sure that they were aware that it’s a real product, said Zeman.
I also wanted to show that it can be made, that it could be done, that I’m not making this up.
So far, she has gotten a lot of positive feedback.
One mom said she’d love to have one of her daughters wear one, and she’s got some of her own ideas for other babies to wear.
Janet hopes the costume can help raise awareness and support for the pandemics.
She says that even though the costume is a toy, there’s a lot that can be done with the baby fox.
“They can be given to people to do their own personal health assessments, to make them feel comfortable about being around this species,” she said.
“We can make it a safer place for them to be, and it can help to encourage them to go out and do things that are safe.”
She said she hopes to raise money for the organization that helps families dealing with the pandics.
“I think it’s important that this doesn’t become a norm, and that we keep pushing and making this happen,” she added.
