Aha..I know those stilt design. Very nice costume. How hard is it to move around?

It's hard to turn in, for sure. I don't wear it often, but when I do, I move about 1 mile per hour. Obviously with practice I could get better. Most of my practice time was spent intentionally falling so I would not lose a knee or an ankle if I accidentally fell. The staff is very helpful by the way. I decided to use it only after the costume was built.
