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!

I love this costume! The optical illusion works so well, I completely believe it.

Wow! This costume is super-smart. Can you also make the head move about to make it look like the ostrich is looking around?
