Need Costume Ideas

There's one costume show that I do every year at our local fair, and it's become quite a competition among some of the adults who do it year after year.

I would love to hear your ideas for costume for a horse and rider. In the past I've done Native American, Gypsy, Pilgrim, Skunk, Me as a cupcake and horse as a baker, me as a chicken and the horse as a 'chick magnet'...well that's all I can think of right now.

I need to incorporate horse and rider, but I don't have to be riding the horse in the class if the costume doesn't allow.

Thanks, can't wait to hear something new!

If you can't be brave, then be determined, and you'll end up at the same place.

How about Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker? Lol. Works better if the horse is black.
Or you could do a pimp and hoe? Always wanted to do that one, but not sure if that would be appropriate for a costum show. Hehe

I always wanted to do me as the Mad Hatter and my horse as the Chesire Cat!
myhorsesonador and Ripplewind like this.

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

He's black, so am trying to think of a wordplay on that.

Also, I will be 57 by the time of the show, so have to think accordingly.Not grown up per se,(because I'm not) but not a Disney character either.

I do have g'kids showing, so all ideas are appreciated.

I did a Ghost Busters theme once wher I draped the horse in a sheet and cut eye and ear holes out for his eyes and ears. I made the ghost catching box out of a shoebox and attached it to the leadrope, and I got a ghostbusters outfit. Won first place.

Then I went as The Shredder and Donatello. I made blades out of an old pizza box and spray painted them silver and stuck them on my silver helmet. Made silver spike shoulder pads and wore black spandex. Also wore a silver mouth shield like the shredder. I put a green blanket and a green sleezy over the horse, cut out a felt shell and a belt, and gave him a purple bandana and knee/elbow pads. First place :)

My first costume show was this:

I was 17 and everything was handmade. We won best of show.

Whatever you do, knock 'em dead!
