Bionic Animal Legs Are Built For Theatre and/or Enchanted Woodlands

Human legs are just so bourgeois. You’ll never catch me wearing the last millennium’s leg fashions again.

These “digitigrade leg extensions” are the work of Seattle-based sculptor Kim Graham. Essentially a fancy pair of stilts, the legs mimic digitigrades (animals including horses that bear weight on their toes). Half this video demonstrates how the legs look on a human. The other half demonstrates how they look on a furry satyr.

Brb, gotta voluntarily vomit up this Kashi and coffee that I consumed about three moments too soon this morning. [Kim Graham via Super Punch]
