“The zebra print body suit worked perfectly for the horse and rider dress up contest my son entered. Thanks for making pony sizes!! ❤️️?❤️️”
We asked if she would be willing to share how she made the authentic-looking zebra mane. “Sure! I bought white faux fur fabric and cut a strip for the mane. I measured and sectioned off pieces and rubber banded every other section. The sections with no rubber band, I spray painted with black spray paint. I had someone hold pieces of cardboard on each side so I wouldn’t get paint on the white sections. When the paint dried I brushed all the hair straight up and sprayed in some stiff hairspray, then cut it straight across the top. I then hot glued the mane on. It worked great. We’ll continue to use it to keep her clean for shows! ”

“Hi Barb. Thank you for helping me create my blue dragon this year. The costume was a great success. For some reason I’ve started thinking about next year, probably because this was so fun. The costume I’m thinking about is making my horse into a Piñata. I hope that you’ll be able to help me again. As this idea evolves I’ll let you know and perhaps we can create a really fun costume! “

“Here’s a picture of me, Jessie, and Nick, as Buzz Lightyear at S.H.A.R.E. horse rescue costume contest in Dewey, Illinois. We had a white sleepy with purple head and neck for Buzz Lightyear. He had a jet pack (from Amazon $9.99) attached by Velcro. We got a foam vest for the front that we used velcro and a glue gun to put the name Lightyear on and the red,dark green, and Blu dots. We velcroed a NASA patch on him too. His legs had the lime green Sleezy fast leg wraps. We put an American flag on his right front leg wrap with Velcro.”

“We did it again. 6th year blue ribbon.” Lila purchased a kelly green full body sleezy for her miniature donkey. I love how she accesorized her elf costume with striped people stockings. A simple $2 hat made fancy by adding Wright’s Trims dingle-balls. And, adding little felt elves all over the body of the costume. Easy to do and very charming.

“Here is a picture of Nick as Captain America. He wore a blue sleazy wear unibody outfit. We used red vet wrap for his legs. We put some red and white striped material over his midsection using Velcro. I got 2 Captain America shields from the kids costume aisle to Velcro each on each side of him. I went as Wonder Woman. This was a costume contest in October 2018 at Society for Hooved Animal Rescue and Emergencies in Dewey, Illinois.”

“They turned out great, thank you from the Tractor & Scarecrow, the 2 Zebras and the Bat & Vampire :).” Renee purchased three full body sleezys from us. She got the John Deere tractor and her son dressed as a scarecrow. A zebra and her daughter dressed as a zebra so we have two zebras. And, a black uni-body for the pony so he could be a bat. The bat wings were a very inexpensive purchase from Party City. Be sure to check out the Halloween stores, Party City and Amazon for accessories. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the low cost.

“Thanks so much for making and shipping out the orange blanket for us. Just wanted to let you know my daughter won the costume contest tonight ? They were dressed as electric company workers for PG&E. The horse wasn’t used to wearing the blanket but she succumbed anyway! It looks great. Thank you!!!
