If you can't afford the stilts, or one of my pre-cut kits, I understand! This is why I've made these detailed, illustrated Instructions (sold separately) and Hardware Kit available for a much more affordable price. Since shipping large packages out of the country is so expensive, this give a chance for my international customers to take advantage of my design. This is very convenient for international customers, since translating information can become difficult when shopping.

The minimal power tools you'll need is a drill, a saw, and a Dremel, and you can complete these with ease.

Get rid of the frustration of having to go back to the hardware store a billion times having to get 1 thing! This kit will include all of the SMALL hardware you need, a shopping list for the larger stuff, tool list, and everything you will need to know how to make your very own dynamic movement stilts in 40 easy to follow steps with basic CAD drawings and actual photographs.

I am sorry but I do not accept returns for these instructions and Kit.

We can ship the kits faster, please contact us to find out the soonest shipping date!


These are a design I developed to create a more realistic effect than any of the other stilts I've seen. This is based off an open source idea, with some of my very own elaborations.

They include ankle support structure, bungees for muscular comfort, and of course the fully articulated foot. (Other designs only have limited toe movement.) They are composed of 100+ pieces, assembled for durability, maximum potential comfort, and beauty. My channel has videos of the guts and gears of these lovely paws.

Don't be discouraged by the complexity that 100+ pieces may insinuate, the instructions provided clarify everything. Most of the pieces are just hardware. It can be completed in just 40 easy, well illustrated steps! If you can build IKEA furniture, you can build these! These actually have words to go with the pictures!


Q: When/where will I receive my Stilt Instructions?
A: You will need to add them to your cart, and they will be available for download upon completion of the transaction.

Q:Are these hard to walk in?
A: Not really. You will need to adjust accordingly, but they are much like walking in high heels. All of your weight is on your toes.

Q: Can I run or dance in these?
A: Not very well. Keep in mind that there is extra movement and the potential to trip is very high. If you inhibit the extra animation, more mobility is achievable.

Q: How much taller do these make me?
A: When you stand straight up, you'd be about a foot taller, but it ruins the effect to walk with straight legs. When your legs are bent, you'd be a few inches taller.

First off, let me say that this was my very first time building/walking in stilts and they are more balanced and comfortable than I thought they would be. My order arrived on time, easy to follow instructions and I was able to get it all done in time for a photo shoot over the weekend for halloween. Thank you again to Chaos Costumes for making it possible and much thanks and appreciation for all your help and patience with all the question I had. Happy Halloween ?????

The delivery was quick and on time. All parts were there and in good condition. I had a little problem downloading the instructions until a friend showed me how to do it. Now I can't weight to make my very own digitigrade stilts to use as my creature creations.
