Well since everyone else is posting costume ideas in this thread and getting a lot of answers, I thought I'd post this again here. (Sorry if I shouldn't repost n_n)
I want to make Beau a Renaissance horse this year. I drew this up yesterday as sort of an outline of what I want to do for it..
He has a burgundy saddle pad, and I was thinking of attaching tassles to it somehow. Then over his rump, I'm going to get around 6 cheap brown leather belts to match the saddle color, cut them, and fashion them into "barding". I am going to put the tassles on the reins, breastplate, and browband as well. (He's pretty bombproof and has had stuff on the browband before and it doesn't bother him).
Beau's saddle pad:
This is my outfit. The burgundy of the dress pretty much matches the saddle pad exactly. I checked yesterday ^_^
Does anyone have any other ideas/suggestions as to what we could do for this?
