Walk like Pan

Seattle artist Kim Graham has created a set of stilts mimicking the extended foot of a horse or other grazing animal. Her satyr costume is pretty much the best ever... And check out how they look in motion!



Want!

She is making them for sale, but there is a long wait time and they will cost something like $1000 depending on the optional spring-loaded hooves.

These are COOL! I want to make some! It would be so much fun to go walking around in the supermarket in, making people stare and wonder what they are! Definitely added to my list of strange and funny things to do in public places...
The free pdf download is here for the prototype version:

Awesome! I actually have more than half the supplies on there. I didn't think they would be so simple.

Them's horse-hooves, not goat-hooves...

They are certainly shaped more like horse hooves, but I think they're cloven. Anyway you could put whatever kind of hoof you wanted, if you were making them!

My sister want's goat-hooves, so she might like these. But I know she'd complain that they weren't right... Hmm worth thinking about. L
Well well... L

They're more impressive without the fabric covering, IMO.

Maybe it's just my recent TV habits, but they strongly remind me of Star Wars walkers.
