This darling little princess tamed and trained her own dragon! This was made from a special order fabric. Leah added her own tail, wings and spikes. For the spikes and wings “I used a felt….glued the sides and stuffed with fiber filing.” Another option would be to use thin foam from your favorite craft store. Notice the detail she added of the very heavy chain used to keep the dragon “under control.”

Patti and Mitch needed three costumes for a “pool game” they devised using their pony, miniature horse and miniature donkey. They needed an 8 ball, a stripe and a solid billiard ball. Here is Cookie wearing the burgundy stripe “15”. “First let me say that my wife could NOT possibly be happier. Now, let me share with you a pic or two of our “Cookie (that’s her name) in one of the sleepers that you made.”

These photos were taken at The National POA Congress in St. Louis, MO. “This was the costume I designed last year where I was the Terracotta soldier, Katelin was the Chinese Emperor’s daughter on a Chinese New Year Dragon.” We made the Uni-Body and Fast Leg Wraps from fabric Dr. Keith chose from one of our suppliers.

Here is a photo from Dr Keith at the POA National Congress. He was the National Congress Champion with his very clever entry of “Amelia Earhart and the Suba Diver who rescued her” costume. We made the Uni-body and Fast Leg Wraps out of a special order fabric. Dr Keith wanted one side red sequin and the other side a silver sequin. He also designed the airplane which had a stream of smoke coming out of it! What I wonder is how he got around wearing those flippers. Hope he didn’t have to enter at a trot!

“Hi Everyone! This is our second year using our Uni-Body Suit for a costume. Just use washable paint and you can use it every year!! This year my daughter Devyn and her pony Sadie are a carousel horse and pole and they had a great Halloween! The lycra sleezy really holds up and makes a great costume!!”

“I wanted to share some photos of your wonderful sleezies. This one was the first one I bought back in 2008. I entered my stallion Moonie in it at my Miniature Horse club’s fall fun show in both the costume class and colorful class.”

“Our horses Nutmeg and Diamante told us they wanted to feel what it was like to be famous so we turned them into Seabiscuit and Secretariat using Sleezy Barb’s face masks. We won first place on our Halloween ride with our riding club and really enjoyed being ‘famous’ for one day!”

“This is the costume that I made for my daughters 4-H District Horse Show 2013. She is Cruella Deville and her Welsh Pony is the dalmatian! We bought the white Uni-body suit from you and painted on the spots with t-shirt paint, sewed on ears and a collar, and his tail is in a Ultimate tail wrap to cover his black tail. The paws I made myself with stuffing and Velcro. She won third place for her costume and had a great time! Thank-you for all the products that you sell and the unlimited things I can do with my daughters imagination!!” You look fabulous, dahling, absolutely fabulous!

In Candance’s words…”I was the main character from a video game series called Assassins Creed, and Carter (my horse) was the guards horse I stole out from under him :) Carter was a trooper for this whole event. my cape was flapping every where and his outfit was flappin around his legs, and not once did he ever have a problem. You guys supplied me with the face mask. I added the silver for the face plate look.” Wonderful costume idea. Thank you for sharing your pictures. We hope it will provide you with some inspiration of how easy it is to make your costume unique and fabulous!

In Kristen’s words…”Here is 7 year old Devyn and her Welsh/Thoroughbred pony, Sadie, at the 2012 Huntingdon Valley Hunt Halloween Show. Devyn is Alex the Lion and Sadie the Marty the Afro Circus Zebra from the movie Madagascar 3. We purchased the white Uni-Body suit and painted the circles on the body with washable paint so we can use the body suit throughout the season. This pair came in second in a very large class! We want to thank you for your excellent product and customer service that was second to none!” You two look amazing and I especially love that wig! You are just too cute! Thanks for sharing your idea.

The rest of the embellishments are made from yarn. Yarn ears with purple bows. Yarn tail.  Knitted/crocheted hot pink vest and poodle puffs on the legs. You can see she even has a diamond studded black collar. Very nicely done, ladies!

It’s a bird…no, it’s a plane…no, it’s SUPERHORSE! Sockett is dressed as Superhorse and is wearing a royal blue Uni-Body Suit. Toni made a red satin cape attached with glitter garland. The garland is used on the brow band of the halter. The legs are wrapped with red polo wraps and topped with gold garland. Toni made her own Superhorse logo using some of the red satin from the cape and attached it to the Uni-Body using heat press-on Stitch Witchery (can be found at Joann’s or Walmart in the notions section).

Batman’s nemeses, The Riddler, The Joker and Catwoman. We provided the Uni-Body for Susan’s mini in Kelly Green and she added the question marks.

In Kathy’s words…”I can’t tell you enough how wonderful your sleezy mask is. My sister was ecstatic over the costume. So I am sending you a few pictures of Pam and Vrouwke.” Kathy had us make her sleezy mask half black and half white. She also added the cape and rein decorations.
