Horse/Poodle **Crafty People HELP**
 
So I've been brain storming ideas for costume classes this year and while searching YouTube I came across this. :D


I have no idea what I'd use for the horse's feet, ears or poof. Although Molly has a long forelock so I might just put it back and hair spray it, and elastic it to her mane. :lol:

Here's the mare that will be putting up with all this.

That is flippin' adorable! Depending on how tolerant your mare is, you could make the puffy parts for the legs out of craft foam or quilt batting wrapped in really big, black polos or with black fabric with elastic at the top and bottom.

Looks like a sewing project! The head poof and ears all probably all one piece with a throatlatch and holes for the real ears to go through. The shape of the poof can be done with sewing together a few pieces shaped like this: () and then fill it with your choice. Keeping in mind the weather.

Tail Poof: Maybe made a cylindrical bag with a cardboard circle inserted at the bottom and then filled it with the horse's tail. How to attach though is another question... elastics? clips? Maybe the pink bow could be helpful there.

I'm totally lost on the foot poofs though. Best I can gather up is thick foam vet wrapped on and then covered with presewn fabric held closed with velcro. The foam would have to be slit to allow for the curvature. Foam might be rather hot on the legs though. I guess if its only for a few minutes it wouldn't be bad, but I don't think I want to have it on for hours.

Funny how this just happens to show up after I posted it for someone else asking about costumes.......Hmmmm.

anyway, I think if you google, there was an article from the local newspaper (florida, I believe) that interviewed the lady and she said how she did it.

She's pretty bomb proof, and the worst she'll do is glare at me. LOL.

Thanks, I'm having my Aunt do it for me I just need to pay for the fabric and stuff. :-)

Really? I searched 'horse costume parade' and 'horse costume class' and it was like the third one down. They have some really nice costume on YouTube to look at; I was surprised.
Ok, thank you!
