Maybe people with video footage of themselves walking and moving around could post links so that we can see the differences between the various types.
eg, Skywalker , drywall and lifts . (bucket and home made ones maybe even)
It might help people make a better informed decision Very Happy


That is a great idea...

I will have to work on getting some video on my next troop. There was a video somewhere of me doing the Electric Slide in stilts. Dance Chewie

I had actually wanted skywalkers but glad I did not get them after I discovered how I walk. I am using regular drywall stilts but need to build the outside up a small bit due to me walking on the outside edge of my feet. That is the only trouble i have been having.

Nope, that's the cheapest I've found too. Not that I'm rich or anything, my biggest worry is that they might be harder to find in the future. I'm holding off for now, but I almost want to buy a pair "just in-case". However $280 will cover most my hair and and possibly some sculpting costs.

Decisions decisions...
