How to Become a Centaur
Apparently there is a market for everything. According to inventorgal’s youtube channel the demand for these horse legs has been “overwhelming.” I know the video says they are available for actors and performers but I have a strange feeling these are really marketed to individuals with more eclectic tastes.
So what is the big deal? This helps people fulfill their lifelong dream of being another species, right? Well as much as I love random and weird things the idea of waiting in line behind a 7’ tall centaur at the gas station, who gets an attitude with me because I’m starring at him, kind of bothers me. Maybe I’m wrong but it sounds like renaissance fairs across the country are about to get even weirder.
But that is just my opinion. If you are dead set on having these I found a few videos that may help get you started on designing your own horse legs or legs for whatever animal you feel like inside.
Who am I to judge, right? Just don’t get upset if people stare when you show up at the local grocery store. Remember they’re not judging your horse legs or your god given right to live as a centaur. They’re just wondering why a horse has a pound of beef in their grocery cart, but I digress.
Here is a link to download the plans for these:
