Costumes

Hello All,

It's only August, but I'm already thinking about Halloween costumes for Rudy & Rocky. Our Cascade Havanese club has a costume contest in October.

Anyone have some ideas from past years?? Do you make them? Buy them? Any website you could recommend? How about pictures of your pups in costume??? Love to see them!

It's hard to buy on-line, you never know how well they'll fit.

Thank you in advance!


With a smile,
Cindy

E-Bay!!!! I have gotten a lot of items for Mirabel including the cutest custom made ladybug outfit. A number of sellers in there offer custom fitting all you have to do is send in your pup's measurements.

Those pics are too funny. I especially like the pug dressed as a flower and the one dressed like a spider. And that bull dog dress like a fire hydrant. I hope nobody mistook him for a real one!!

Love that pic of little Ollie!!!

All great ideas and everything, but how on Earth does someone KEEP the hat/kerchief/costume ON the dog?? Or do you just keep it on long enough to to get good pictures?! lol

Some of these costumes look like you could just *cut* the fabric and pin it on! lol....they don't look very complicated.

It is a one time costume, right? Who is going to notice if the ends aren't mended? You could just cut the fabric into the pattern and put some "no-fray" glue on the ends and glue the pieces together with Fabric or craft glue.

Easy Peasy!
