Since I was running in a Halloween race, I wanted a costume that would be fun to run in. After brainstorming a bit, I thought about making a horse and jockey costume. Only problem--horses have 4 legs, and I have two. So what has two legs and runs? An ostrich!
This is made out of polar fleece, batting, two wire hangers, and 6 feather boas. The pants were a Goodwill find, and the tights came from Target. The hat is my hubby's old mowing hat. It was kind of a last minute costume (my hubby and I were going to go as a matador and a bull, but he had to go out of town). But it was a lot of fun to make! Some trial and error, but still fun!
I had a lot of fun wearing this and running in it! All along the course, kids would yell, "Look Mom, she's riding an ostrich!" Seeing them excited made my day!
