I found this old scarf and thought that it may look better than the feather boa I glued on there, which looks better?

I'd say a fuller mane would look best, although the boa looks fluffier. I'd go with fake/faux fur myself. Most fabric stores carry it and you don't need a lot.

Here is another picture, nothing is glued on yet. I cut the scarf kind of rough, so the boa is there to cover where I cut it.

(sorry if this picture is super big)

I think you should use the scarf for the leopard spots in the middle of the chest and find some fake fur for the mane. :)

unfortunately I already glued it down, I was rushing because I was told that the Musical Variety Show that I'm in was next week, but then I found out it wasn't, one day I'll probably make another costume, with a unitard (every time I pull this shirt over my head it feels like it's going to fall apart!) and I'll probably just tear off the scarf from this costume and use it the way you suggested, after all, the painted-on spots look a bit like pizza. Thanks for the advice!
