(10/21/2006•08:42) I need Help on Making a One-Man Centaur [edit]One Man Centaur 
I wanted to look like the centaur off of The Chronicles of Narnia for this monster game I got myself into but I dont know how.

I want something that all legs move
It wont tip over
Looks real
Durable


I was thinking that I could make the front legs and the back legs have a pully system and use rope to make the back legs move.

like this
yes I did that on Paint becuse my photoshop computer isnt with me at the time

maybe, simply attach invisable thread to your fingers, and onto the rear legs... ...


um.. maybe the rear legs can be made with cardboard the fastener pins... in different "joints" and attach a string on the inside, so you can pull on it..

I really don't know. Sorry.

Good luck!

Oh, maybe if the rear legs have little wheels on them (but covered.. to look like hooves.. ?

you'd have to walk front right and rear left together. Once you have the back legs stuffed you can tie fishing line around your ankle and connect cross legged.

so you'll walk and the correct rear leg will be pulled forward as well, looking like all your legs are walking.

Hello.
I have made a centaur costume.
making the rear legs move is hard.
start simple.
I made a wire frame with a metal back bone and breast bone.
The rear legs do move but only a little, i had wires going from the front legs to the back. the legs are stiff but the metal frame make them 'spring' back.
