Here's the centaur costume my sister designed and I helped her build, with a lot of help from my husband. It has a walking mechanism for the back legs.

My sis onstage at the World Science Fiction Convention this weekend in San Antonio:



I hope for more pictures to come, showing the walking.

Those legs came out great! I've seen centaur body costumes done before, but none had the lovely definition that your achieved in yours Smiley

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Whatever won first place had better have been the most outrageously incredible costume ever because this is just amazing!

Amazing! I would have loved to see her move.
Who printed up that page? They called her a "half-horse". **facepalm**
And sorry if I seem dense, but what the HECK was the first place winner supposed to be? Huh

I'm glad folks are liking the costume!  Thank you!

"Half-horse" is actually correct in this case, because this centaur is based on a comic series in which centaurs are called "half-horses."  Smiley  http://stinz.com/



I have no idea what the Best in Show is supposed to be, but it has elaborate armor.  It's probably a character from a manga (Japanese comic).

Ah, I see. That's understandable. I've seen people get lazy and say "Those half-horse things from mythology. Like in Fantasia." Roll Eyes

Armor makes sense, I suppose. Maybe I'm just biased because I like mythical creatures.
