At first glance I thought it was a Chocobo from Final Fantasy.  Maybe I'll have to make one of those next year.
I love your ostrich costume, though and I'll bet it was tons of fun to run in!

Oh, How I love this! I'd bet it made the run a joy to watch!

Saw a commercially produced ostrich rider costume a couple months ago and thought, "What a great idea; I should be able to make something like that myself."  Then I realized how long it would take me to figure out how to design and and make it.

What a treat to see that someone with greater perseverance than I (and fantastic crafting skills to boot) actually did it, and did it so well -- wonderful work, hardyjenni!

(PS: The commercial costume isn't stuffed, but rather made of polyester fabric with a battery operated fan that inflates the whole thing, including the legs -- fun, but nowhere near as elegant a creation as yours!)

This is so totally awesome.  The idea is funny, the costume is excellent & I bet it was so fun to run in it for the race.  Coolest costume ever!  Any videos of you running in the costume?

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......
