You don’t have to be all man to be all man.

Mmmmmm dead rabbits around necks, rogue cleavage, & centaur men who work off tips….. This is my kind of Renaissance…… Where do I sign up???????
That is soooo awesome..and not awesome at the same time 🙂
Zoiks! Don’t often see a horse with cankles.
This sure ain’t Narnia, Lucy.
Get a load of the damsel’s busty tattoo spillage over the top of her dress.
And this boys and girls is why you should never take animal steroids.
It was all swell, until the steeplechase event.
Which is more awkward: that her bodice is woefully inadequate for her erratically overflowing abundance or the dollar bills in his um garter belt?
The look on the girl’s face seems to be saying, “what is that poking me in the back?”
This is at Sherwood Forest Faire in Paige, Texas. A awesome new fair!
I know this “man”, this is not his family (though he has a lovely wife and daughter)!!
He is an actor as a Renaissance Festival and the money is him letting people know his pay is from tips as well.
I had a friend who was half man half bull. He went around the country performing.
He didn’t go to many venues. It was a minotaur (sorry don’t know any jokes about centaurs!)
I’d offer him some throat lozenges. After all he’s a little hoarse.
Alan, I’ll pony up some if you don’t want to.
“Why can’t my mom and dad just do Zumba and golf like other parents? Get me out of here!”
Does this guy know anything about the true myth of centaurs? If he does, then I find this offensive. If he doesn’t, then I find it to be amusing.
he gets his money from underground Centaur racing.
I don’t think that’s a real horse’s a$$…I think they photo shopped it in!
Dunno if that’s “all man”, as the horse end seems to be missing some of its “manly” characteristics.
Looks like the woman’s cup runnith over!
Centaur man has cankles.
The only that could possibly make this better would be if she had some dollar bills stuffed in her bosom.
I gotta know – is he able to walk around or is this a “stationary” costume? I was thinking of the poor guy on the back end…
Lol … looks like he’s a gelding.
How does he move? Does he have wheels on his hind legs or do his family have to carry his rear end?
I was wondering the same thing, about the back legs. Also, I’m not so sure they’re his family, if he goes to the Ren Faire and gets his picture taken with Faire-goers…
Bad week for the family, you see grandad broke his leg last week and we had to put him down.
I want to see him walk.
Wow, that wench certainly has an ample bosom!
OH MY GOD – I had a photo taken with this Centaur. Two years in a row. HA!
Texas Ren Faire. Love this guy!!!
it’s based on context at Ren faire so it’s not really awkward; but online to non Rennies it is awkward and yes it a dead rabbit, skinned in one piece, tanned and then used as a bag, very common in years of olde bot not so much anymore although with no legs it’s probably tanned flat and sewn up to make the purse. Very cool and not awkward to me a Ren Faire dork and lover of costumes in general.
Guess I just learned that I am a complete “non-rennie”. Hallelujah!
I’d hate to be the guy in the rear-half of that costume!
Especially when they start the jousting.
Do my eyes deceive me or did he make that costume anatomically correct? There is a light colored bulge just in front of the back legs. If it was his intent to make it anatomically correct, he sure sold himself short!
I’m in a horse!
Yeah, but nobody wants to smell like him.
OMG! Is that a dead rabbit hanging on the girl’s dress?
What is that duct-taped on his arm?
Wow!! This is….interesting..? The girl looks *thrilled* with the whole thing lol
Is he taking tips???
At least they are doing stuff as a family, even if it is a little, um strange =)
I’ve got a tip for him: lay off the oats.
Can anyone explain the dollar bills stuffed into his arm band? Do I really want to know?
I can’t exactly say but I do know most of the preformers at the ren fest travel around the country and live only by their tips they make. I don’t think he is a stripper if that is what you are implying, but I wonder how big a centaur’s…nevermind.
He’s not a stripper. He’s a stud.
The little girl seems so exasperated by all of this.
The family the “neighs” together…
There goes the “neigh”-borhood…
According the Centaur chairing the meeting, the “neighs” have it.
The little girl’s face says it all…..
Just remember, in about five years, she’ll be dating. Some poor teenage boy is going to come round to pick her up and this is what opens the door!
Is he stripper? Then why the dollar bills in a garter belt on his arm?
What the WHAT?!
Can I also say that this is 1,000 times better than I imagined it?
Looks like you have to pony up some cash to get a shot with this stallion.
Kathy, that’s hilarious, what you wrote!
I wish there was a “like” button, and I wish we could click it a hundred times!!
Hahaha! This is at the Texas Renaissance Festival where I got married last year. 😀 His costume is by far the most highly praised work of art there! And yes, he’s there every single year! Go visit your local Texas centaur man next season! 😀
yep, I recognized him right away! He’s not the only one in great costume either. If you’re in Texas, go visit! On another note, that little girl looks like she is being tortured and would rather be anywhere else in the world!
I was thinking this looked like the Texas Ren Fest!
i’m sorry, did you say you were married at the Texan Renaissance Fair? When does your photo get posted to this site?
This is not at TRF, this picture was taken at Sherwood Forest Faire. It’s a smaller/newer faire just outside of Austin.
OMG, is this Diane from Elliott in the Morning? THank you, thank you to whoever posted this! I heard them talking about it, but forgot to look it up.
Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
At first I thought Mom had Klingon eyebrows, but now I see it’s a gold headband.
I thought she was Shera.
Because, you know, a Klingon would just look weird
Are you serious? This isn’t Diane, Scott and Marley. You feel for their “bit”. Look her up on EITM webpage, you’ll see this is not her.
You gotta love ren faires!
WTH is that hanging around the girl’s neck? Looks like a dead rabbit.
I think you are right. The look on her face definitely says “dead stinking rabbit”!!
Oh my. I just saw the dollar bills on his arm band. Wow…
Apparently, the world’s first Chippendale was half Clydesdale.
I just guffawed reading your Chippendale comment.
I wonder what’s happening with those? Maybe to illustrate that he doesn’t have pockets since he’s…um…part horse?
He must be studding.
Mom said they didn’t have iPods in the renaissance, so I can’t use mine. I am sooooo sure!
