Okay so every fall my DD and I really get into the "costume" class at several fall horse shows and the fall parade. I take it seriously, and go all out. I ride a 15.1h pintabian (pinto/arab) who will put up with ANYTHING. Last year we did a Hawwian theme and my girl wore grass skirt around all 4 legs and a faux coconut bra and sunglasses and I wore loud shirt and leighs and grass skirt also. We won ALL the judged classes and best costume at the parade. So this year I am going to be a chicken and my mare an egg. She is grey and white and i will pull that off with painted cardboard (did I mention she will put up with anything?) So here is my problem, I have bid on several new and used chicken costumes on ebay. I am always getting outbid as my maxx is $75! I checked the local halloween store and they were 150.00 for the full chicken costume. We called the local costume rental places and they had no chicken costumes at all. A few had chick costumes. So before I bite the bullet and shell out over 100.00 for one on ebay, does anyone have any suggestions? Places I may have overlooked? TIA and sorry if this is in the wrong place.
