We don't get many costume classes in NZ, but this year's NZMHA National Show put one on, and it was a great success! aktion033.gif

My husband is the imaginative type rolleyes.gif and at the time we had a small chestnut foal that was (is) particularly biddable. So we went off and bought some furry fabric, and a few tassles etc, then to the second hand cothing store and found an Eastern type costume for hubby, and then got to work...

I think Stix was the smallest camel ever in existence, but also the cutest wub.gif It was a very cold evening, and he was very happy to be wrapped up in a fur coat laugh.gif complete with hump! yes.gif

Here is the costume i used for my jr gelding, Coco, last yr.

Since his name is Coco, a Coconut theme kind of just had to happen. I ordered his costume from the internet and it was made for a person, so i had to do some of my own adjustments for it to fit him right.

Here he is, in all his Coconut glory.

This year he's going to be Superman! I cant wait to get this one started off. I seen the costume at Wal Mart today after i went to see Superman Returns and i figure i can find red boots in a kids size to use for him. I'm also going to put glasses on him ....who knows, i might even throw a skirt on and a dressy shirt and be lois lane.
