I bought stilts last summer and have been practicing on them for a almost 9 months now. I feel like I can go out into the world with them and show everyone how super tall I am, YAY! The hope is to be able to juggle, contact juggle, spin fire and do everything except unicycle on top of stilts, making all of my shows have double the impact!
I also bought some fabric to make my first pair of basic stilt trousers and I am looking for materials to cover the feet like shoes. I think it is important to the whole character to have full feet, giving the audience relief to their suspension of disbelief!
Here we go folks, I can now stilt walk on 2 ft stilts for your parties (soon to be 4ft as these are adjustable)! The hope is that I can do almost all my juggling, high up in the air! WEE!
it makes the whole dropping a ball thing even more frustrating.
Stilts are so fun! I used to make wood ones with my friends when I was little. You are going to have a blast!
No unicycle!? What kind of performer are you?
I can’t wait to see some video’s of you on stilts!
Stilts are great fun even for me at 62 yrs old. I love going cross country on my pegs. You should try getting away from performing and enjoy yourself. The link below gives access to around 50 home movies of my thrills & spills on my 20 inch, 24 inch & 36 inch peg stilts.
