Posted:So was thinking having stilts with a back bent post (like a bird leg) would look mad good for my Bapthomet costume. Nothing too high, maybe 1.5'-2' total height. I was thinking that metal joint braces, and a vertical wooden support might make this a feasible, but frankly a rather expensive experiment.

Something like this if this site let me do ASCI art. 45* angle from foot, with a 90* at the joints of the two equal length riser parts.
Posted:I'm mostly looking for shape here, specifically for birds and goats. I'd be surprised if they give me any advantages over regular strapped on wooden stilts and they won't be anything like a set of powerisers.
Last time I built a pair of woodens, they ran me around $70 US, I suspect these will be a bit more, maybe $120 or so. While the loss of the materials, should they fail, will be a bit of a burden to our starting circus, I'm more concerned about the hospital bills.
Any one have any pictures of fixed stilts of this nature that show enough detail for replication?
