Tonka the miniature pony receives a handmade costume from his owner every Halloween.

'Took me about 16 hours of cutting, sewing, and re-fitting'

Tonka the miniature pony from Legal, Alta. has an incredible Halloween costume - and for his owner, creating one-of-a-kind costumes is an annual tradition. 1:19

It's a bird! It's a plane!

Or maybe it's a miniature pony.

It's Tonka, the nine-year-old miniature pony, to be exact.

His owner Patty Kramps has spent the last five years creating one-of-a-kind costumes for Tonka.

"It's just a lot of fun to do this with these little guys, I do a lot with them and I like my little sewing machine and I get kind of out of control," she said.

This year, the costume is incredible — Kramps spent many hours bent over her sewing machine creating a costume inspired by The Incredibles, the Pixar movie.

She even created an Edna Mole costume, another character in the film, for herself.

"[It] took me about 16 hours of cutting, sewing, and re-fitting," she said.

Kramps has several miniature ponies on her land near Legal, but Tonka is her favourite to dress up.

"He's the go-to," she said. "He has attitude but he always steps up, he also does what I want him to do and he does the best he can to pull it off."

In 2014, Kramps dressed Tonka up as a horse fit for a knight, a costume she thought would be hard to beat.

But she said she already has plans in the work for next year — though she's not letting anything slip.

"Of course, that's a secret," she said, adding that she won't be revealing anything until next year.
