I started looking around for a headless horseman and a horse costume. Unfortunately, the only headless horseman costumes I could find were online, and ran around $80, not including shipping. I thought at least I would be able to find a horse costume around locally, but it appears that a horse is not a popular costume. I decided I would have to sew a cape for Will. I then began to look for a large stuffed horse that I could turn the head in to a hat or something, but Savers only had little stuffed animal horses.
The monk costume had two important features: A horse-color body and a hood. A hood with plenty of material to sculpt into a horse head. I bought cheap black fabric and buttons, used some scraps that I had at home (and some fake eyelashes) and went to work.
I have a couple more pictures in a web album. I really think that Will and Reese were the hit of the evening, though, and the entire ensemble cost us less than $20:
