    I have a show on the 9th that has a $100 Payback Costume class and I need ideas for Mel. Here is a pic of her to know what I'm working with.

    We have a huge contest here at one of the big barns - it has a $1000 payout for 1st place (and my daughter won the $1000 at the first one they had it) I used to show Appys and made a Native American costume and she used that.

    But some of the other costumes were a zebra, one horse was a dalmation with Creulla as the handler, they had one with the bones outlined on the horse and rider, of course the headless horseman, a group went as mermaids, another group went as carousel horses, they had some go as a sandwich, box of crayons, the handler with a bathrobe & curlers in her hair & the horse also had curlers and pjs, 3 went as jack in the beanstalk with the beanstalk "holding" the 3 together.

    I love doing costumes so if you have a basic idea and need some input let me know and I will see what we can come up with.

    Most important have fun with it.

    My mom was thinking something like me dressing up as a carpenter and making Mel into a "Saw horse" but i dont know exactly how we would go about that.

    You can put an old sheet on the horse and make a saw out of poster board putting half of the saw on one side and the other half of the saw on the other side of the horse - would be like the arrow sticking through someone (if you know what I mean)
    You can either staple, tape or stitch the poster board onto the sheet or put it under the sheet over the horses back with covered wire.

    Hope that helps.

    yeah I was just going to say, if you should ask anyone on HGS it would be Miss Jetta. Her daughter won 1,000 in our costume contest down here. :)
