I need an idea for our county fair's costume contest. I've done pony princess, now I need a new idea.
I need something creative that your able to describe. The announcer has to say it.
I'm going with my little haflinger, Tanoka.
I dressed my mare as Clifford the Big Red Dog from the childrens book series. The girl who owns Clifford in the books actually rides the dog so it worked really well. The costume was very easy to make; red polarfleece made into a sheet, neck cover, leg wraps, and tail wrap. Then we used more fleece to make big floppy ears and trimmed the ears with a fur boa. A big collar with a yellow fleece "tag" that said Clifford completed the look. People at the show loved it!
Go for it :) I'm going to try to post a photo of the horse in costume here. Hopefully it'll work. This was the prototype; it looked better finished but of course we never got pics of her in the full outfit.
Aww that's SO cute!! I'm going to think about that because that is SO cute!! I used to watch that as a kid- it was like my favourite show lol! Acually I think it was my favourite show :p Anyways, I love the idea!!
