I have a TON of feathers that we can put in your horses mane and tail for that costume. I also have a lynx pelt you can wrap up in OR a soft mount fox that you could drape across your lap. It would go with the Bo, like you just came back from hunting.

We could put feathers in your hair as well. I don't have any buckskin dresses or else I would offer one to use.

I also know how to make a war bridle, but it's not for everyday use as it puts a lot of pressure on the horses mouth. I think a costume would be alright though.

That would be absolutely great if you could do that! It'd be so much appreciated.(:
I think the fox pelt would be great, and I could probably borrow a few antlers from my boyfriend to tie onto a belt or such.
I just need to figure out a shirt and pants and go barefoot. I think my boyfriend has a tan shirt that I could use (even though I can't add fringes or anything, lol) and he may or may not have a pair of tan pants..I have a feeling they wouldn't fit if he does have a pair though. XD I'm just wondering if a pair of basketball shorts (all one colour) would look horrible with it or not though, haha.
A war-bridle would be great too, I was actually going to look them up and see if I could make one out of some rope, haha.

You could buy a extra extra large tan t-shirt and cut fringe into the sleeves and bottom and wear it like a buckskin dress. Put a belt around it and you have a dress. I have a medicine pouch you could wear as well.

What day is the costume show? I can swing by Monday or Tuesday and drop off all the supplies. You can wear the lynx pelt around your shoulders and drape the fox over the horses withers. I have artificial sinu that you can use to wrap the feathers in with and I also have a turtle shell pow wow possible bag with beads and antlers dangling from it. We can deck you out so much that no one will really pay attention to the fact that your shirt isn't buckskin.

Only thing is that that fox mount and lynx pelt are extremely fragile. I stress that. They can rip very easily and actually need a couple slight repairs right now, so be especially careful with them. They're expensive :-p

I'll protect the skins with my life :p I really do appreciate it too! Not only will this be my first time showing, I'm going to be able to finally do the costume contest as well.(:

I'm not sure what day the costume contest is..I'm going to be finding everything out today. I'll grab the shirt and some face paint today before I go (leaving in a few minutes for hauling a crazy/dangerous horse and hay) and hopefully my brown leather belt will be fine.(:

I think I may have spotted your ponies. Are they under the green John Deere decorations?
