My daughter Kadie wanted be like her great grandma, whom at age 70 went to South Africa an rode an ostrich. This is my own design and when Kadie walks in the costume she actually looks like she is riding the ostrich.

    I'd love to hear how you designed the ostrich body and how you built up the neck. I've wanted to do something like this for years but don't want to waste materials figuring out how to get things like the body and neck to actually keep their shape.

    Hi Oyster:

    I just found this website and am also interested to see how you make this costume. I have also been searching for some insights into this tricky costume.

    Can you please share?

    Hi Oyster, I know this pic is from 2009, and hope u are still using this site. I always make the costumes for grandkids, trying to utilize a pattern and then modifying.
    Love the Ostrich, and am pretty sure I can do, but wondering about getting body size of bird right. How did u figure that and can u share any other handy sewing and design tips?
