These "digitigrade leg extensions" are the work of Seattle-based sculptor Kim Graham. Essentially a fancy pair of stilts, the legs mimic digitigrades (animals including horses that bear weight on their toes). Half this video demonstrates how the legs look on a human. The other half demonstrates how they look on a furry satyr.

Brb, gotta voluntarily vomit up this Kashi and coffee that I consumed about three moments too soon this morning. [Kim Graham via Super Punch]

Exactly where is there a market for 9.5 foot tall satyr costumes?

I was hoping that this sort of thing would have a practical application other than costume design, like being able to run at 20 miles an hour. But no, they are just loud stilts.
