Equines by LilleahWest Equines by LilleahWest
Palomino is last year's debut steed, now seen with a longer neck which also houses improved vision out the neck (vs out the nose like last year) all of these suits have neck vision.
Trigger the black Friesian is a fully created costume.
The other two, a Kirin and a Hell Pony, will have fullsuits eventually, for now my white body suit and Ino's faun legs stood in for that for the sake of the event.

I love bringing creatures to life and seeing these four romp the Fantasy Fair this weekend made me decide that even if I hardly have the time to work, even if I do not feel up to working, even though emotions are still haunting me, I need to push myself harder.
I have so many commissions I am looking forward to seeing completed, I want to see more of my creations come to life, so I need to put my nose to the grindstone and try to get back into working full throttle.

I am very fond of this style of equine suit <3 the long necks further desensitize the viewer from seeing a human in a costume

From left to right: Vainglory, Palomino, Trigger, Kirin

Nice, the backwards knee... I've been contemplating attempting a My Little Pony cosplay, and that's one of the things I need to figure out.

just search up some tutorials on Digi-grade legs :) It's pretty easy
KayIscah Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2013  Professional General Artist
Finally got a chance...unfortunately, I'd need the knee much higher up on the leg, but this was still really interesting.

.. How realistic are you willing to go with an equine head? =p I mean.. I'm about to say fuck it, I, Summer Scolaro, need a fursuit head of my equisona. I NEEDS ONE.

She's rather simple, but with her coat color there will be a lot of blending needed.. so I don't expect her to exactly.. be cheap.. LOL. I want her so realistic it's right down to the taxidermy glass eyes.. :p and, seeing as you do such amazing work.. I think you'd be the person to go to!

It brightens my morning to wake up and see a new LilleahWest deviation pop up on my deviantwatch !

That must've been a pretty cool fantasy faire.

for what it's worth, Tycho will be out & about, doing a trunk or treat event at our church this evening. Wednesday, I will be bringing Tycho out to the campus of Michigan State University. Maybe I should take it out there this morning for the annual river cleanup... We'll see!

I missed looking at the creations you did, but I am glad to see some again. I hope you and Gemily are doing well. :)
SirenGarg Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012
The costumes are great as always! Also must say on the wearers...great poses, really adds to each individual personality. Like the Fresian seems so stoic. and the Kirin seems playful

as usual, you have created beautiful works of art in the form of costumes. And I assume that the wearers did your work justice in bringing them to life.

Although my outfit is no where near as incredible as your creations, I've been told by other mascots, that I bring life to my character the instant that the head goes on. It's a good feeling to know that I can bring joy to others by making appearances, just like you bring joy to those few that are lucky enough to have one of your creations!! And the desire you express to see your your creations completed, and then come to life is a strong, burning desire, and will get you through these difficult times.

All my best to you in your endeavors

I know that manly unicorn! ^_^ I've seen pics of it on this beast website I found.....forgot what it's called but it had really awesome pics. This makes me want my suit even more.....alas I'm dirt poor T_T

Oh! Amazing pic btw.
polarflared Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

i want to make a friesian one but in the style of your grey horse pony thing, how do i do that i really want to make one as i dont have the money to buy one, can you give me some advice
NoxNoctisLupus Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Student Writer
I must say, that style of equine suit is a lot more appealing to the eyes than the usual ones I've seen.
FrayAldernari Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Student General Artist

Oooh, I like the Scottish unicorn.

I think you mean fateful day, not faithful.
werewolf-hime1313 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
those black and orange legs, that's the kinda look I want for my faun legs.

idk why I'm telling you this, as it has nothing to do with you. I just felt like telling someone. >.> Sorry. XD
Chargal4 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012
Always epic!

Though I wonder what would happen if your group went to a County Fair in these, and watched the horse shows.
SPPlushies Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
