Harry Potter Costume… for horses!

I’ve been pretty strict about not accepting any custom orders, but I did make an exception before Christmas. I was asked to make a Harry Potter costume for a horse, much like these here. I’m a huge Harry Potter nerd and since this set was for a Christmas gift, I was excited to get to work.

In the end we went with a design that could be worn with a saddle and bridle. Keri Parker of Keri’s Custom Dolls made a beautiful little Hermione doll to go with it, along with her wand. I also put together a miniature copy of the first Harry Potter book.

Here’s the completed set!

The horse costume is basically a blanket with a couple slots cut in the sides for stirrups. It also has a faux “hood” and a removable Gryffindor scarf.

Couldn’t forget the tie and patch 😉

The glasses were made to hook on to a bridle or halter:

Here’s a closer look at Keri’s doll. I made the black robe to fit her- everything else was created by Keri. 🙂
