Centaur Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
Centaurs have been known since the ancient times, but they are still just parts of legends. They are said to be creatures who are half-man on top and half-horse for their lower body. Centaurs are usually depicted as wild and that is probably why they are such great hunters.
Looking like a centaur will require a bit off DIY-ing, on your part. However, it won’t be too hard. You will need PVC pipe, cardboard, caster wheels, and brown fur fabric. Here’s everything you need to look like a centaur.

Centaurs were hybrid creatures in Greek mythology that were used to represent barbarism and chaos, and were thought to be as untamed as wild horses.
