Lightbulb Costume Class Ideas for Arabian?

I have a 4-H horse show coming up Sep. 14 and it has a costume class that I want to participate in. I am planning on taking my arabian mare but I don't have any idea what I want to dress us up as. I have an arabian costume that's VERY jingly that she wears no problem so she probably wont care whatever I decide to use. I have even thrown a tarp over her and she doesnt even flinch so give any idea you have even if it would be a noisy costume it doesnt matter since my Arab doesnt care.

Oh and the reason I can't use the Arabian costume is because im borrowing it from someone and that someone is the judge for that show and she told me she wont judge it because she had made it herself a couple years ago.

So give me your best ideas and hopefully I will find one that I like (I'm very picky about things lol. But give it your best shot!)

I love arabian costumes on arabs; can you have one made, that's sufficiently different from the judge's? Then there's Cat Woman, & dress horse all in black - hood, tassles, etc. Or be a medieval princess w/ horse in jousting gear, including plume on head. How about 18th Century Baroque or the old standby, American Indian buckskin w/ horse in feathers & war paint? Maybe a gorgeous alien from Venus on her inter-galactic steed; lots of silver lame (la-MAY) & maybe some tinfoil :).

Just a few ideas; have fun!

I miss those days! My favorite I did for a class, I did with 2 friends as a group. I am fortunate to have a seamstress for a grandma so she made the costumes. My mare was the bride, my friends gelding was the groom & another friend's mini was the ring bearer complete with gilded & pearl horse shoes. Jana HATED her garter belt, she walked like she had stringhalt lol!

At our county fair this year there was a boy who must have spent an intense amt of time with his parents making it. They turned his pony into a putting green, big circle on top of him - I assume heavy cardboard and covered in indoor/outdoor carpet w/the cup & pin flag. The boy dressed in old style golfer gear and carried clubs. The pony had a sign on his butt that said "Don't let them fool you, I maintain the grass."

Sounds like fun!! Lol I wouldnt be able to do the wedding thing with 3 cause all of my friends that have horses arent in 4-H but I could maybe do a bride and me as a priest with a no-show groom and my mare's "makeup" running lol. Just an idea

Green Broke
By the lime green, sleazy that goes over head and shoulders and some cheap nylon green tack, Take a wide sharpee and draw question marks on the sleezy, then you dress up as either bat girl or the joker or cat woman, your horse will be the Riddler.
