4. Feet/Stilts: Using bucket stilts
purchased from

Modified them from the original 18
inches to approximately 15 inches,
which puts me just over 7ft tall. We
used a separate piece of mesh with hair
latch hooked on to cover the stilts.

5. Toes: These were also purchased

allow for traction, it also helps keep the
toes in place.

box. The bandolier includes 10 large and
