Thoughts on my rhino costume

I’ve been studying the ‘proper’ costumes used by Save The Rhino International and decided to do a couple of things differently:

1. I’d like to be able to see around, so my costume won’t cover my head the way the StR ones do
2. My costume will include my legs and probably my feet, so I’m planning on nicking some of my brother’s old shinpads to modify šŸ˜‰
3. My rhino ‘head’ will have a happier expression than the official ones!

I’m also trying to work out how I can do the main body of the costume without ending up with the dreaded chafeing šŸ˜®

Any ideas greatly appreciated!
