Kim Graham's Digitigrade leg extensions are just one of the many projects under this fine art sculptor's belt. The steel contraptions add 14 inches of height to the wearer as well as the illusion of walking like a horse.
These digitigrade leg extensions are part of an elaborate satyr costume project planned for October 2009 when a steampunk convention is scheduled for Seattle.
Implications - Walking on flat surfaces is rather easy, but it can get quite difficult when walking on uneven grounds and inclines. The featured video shows off the awesome satyr costume that actually looks lifelike. It takes a person about 10 to 15 minutes to get used to walking in them and they can be worn with comfort for around five hours.
