Four legs are good!
Well, it was hard, but all in all, I think these will work a lot better than trying to squeeze your hand down into a PVC tube.|
I couldn't do it, and I have small hands (so I am told..) so I went on a search of a different way to make stilts.
1/4 diameter PVC pipe
4 inch PVC pipe for the top (Covered in some fabric to prevent slipping)
And 3 inch PVC pipe for the base
1, 4 1/2 in bolt 1/4inch in diameter
6 2 inch bolts 1/4 in diameter
Dremel power tool
These have nothing to rub your knuckles on, make a more animal shape and you can widen the distance between the front leg and the back legs by at least a little bit. I'm no lightweight, but these things were able to take my weight pretty well, and I am very confident feeling on them. I have even attempted running in them, and to my surprise, was able to run at least a little bit! First time too!

PS, can we start a memories thing like the fursuit community? I know it would help a lot of people out there!
