    Hold your horses, I’m really not a ‘huggy’ person.

    George R.R. Martin in an early OOC moment.

  3. JuanPaul Says:

    That is terrible riding posture.

    Yippie ai-oh…
    Yippie ai-eh…
    Gross riders in the sky!

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    So I guess you’d call that a “Centauresse”? “Centaurette”? At any rate, maybe the artist should have gone to this model for inspiration.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – That is the “before” centaur girlfriend picture. This is the “after.”

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    So, Night Mare had the front half of a horse. Night Visions has the back half of a horse. If I go to pour myself a Night Cap, what part of the horse will I get?

    Change NIGHT to ZOMBIE and George could have created a billion dollar multi-media empire.

    This is the worst panto I’ve ever attended.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    @THX: I dunno, the dry-ice effects didn’t malfunction and whoever’s the back end of the Pantomime Horse is probably enjoying it.

    And there’s no sign of the Chuckle Brothers.

    Why, the kick, of course 😉

  12. Anna T. Says:

    She’s demonstrating the little-known centaur ability of rubber shoulders.

  13. Yoss Says:

    I never really thought about it before but evidently the human half gets the umbilical cord.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: 😉

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    I wonder if any teachers dressed as this for World Book Day.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Besides the overall fugly, I am really not able to figure out the anatomy of the part between the navel and the front legs. “anatomical issues” indeed.

    (But no listing for Clive Barker, TagW?)

    @DSWBT (7): His or her hat, of course.

    You might get a full horse if you tried MARE VISIONS, but whether the two parts would be connected, I dunno.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Meanwhile, in another episode of “What It Says on the Tin”:

    First in a series of SIX. All about 100 pages long, but asking $2.99 for that. With inappropriate tattoos.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I think that, if you want to make a centaur look anatomically plausible, you could substitute the scapulae of the horse for the pelves of the human and run the abdominals into the clavicles and pectorals of the horse. Notice that this one doesn’t.

    – The woke, identity-respecting label should be “QuadropedFemCaucasian” (or QPFC) — sexual orientation not specified.

  20. Bibliomancer Says:

    @A.R.Yngve – If we don’t know their gender, how do we know which stall they can use?

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DeadSWBT(18)—does this one do that?

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: That’s completely absurd! Look, she’s just waltzing around with a strung bow that appears to have no method to hold the string in place, AND it looks like the string’s resting up against her wrist! BALONEY, sir, complete baloney.

    As for the rest of the centaurides, she’s done well enough. The relationship between the woman’s legs and the horse’s forelegs is well done. There’s a funny divot where the woman’s Mons Pubis should be, they could’ve used more horse hide there and left it up to the imagination.
