HEY GUYS. Take a peak into my latest project...CHRISTMAS DOG/cat COSTUMES. haha. Check out these 7 costume ideas if you're dog obsessed and want to use your pooch's photo on your Christmas cards or you just want to make your pets Instagram account more festive for the season. This morning I went to starbucks to buy a banana just so I could get one of those brown paper bags to make costume #4. The guy handed me a small paper bag with some festive design on it, completely embarrassed I asked if I could get the larger brown bag for my single banana. He kindly asked what it was for and I told him a costume. He looked confused, probably cause Halloween has been over for a month now. Straight up I said "I'm making a red cup costume for my dog. That's my day today, are you jealous?". He replied with "I'll give bags out to anybody who is making costumes!".
THE GLITTER BEARD
I used a white boa from the dollar store and tied it to his collar. Once it was tied I used white acrylic paint to cover the feathers and dust with glitter.
JACK, THE RED-NOSED REINDEER
Antlers from Dollarama with a red Christmas ball orniment
CHRISTMAS CROWN KING
I don't what this is technically called but the crown is a decorative piece you use around candles. Plaid shirt is a children's shirt from the thrift store.
STARBUCKS RED CUP DOG
I used red bristol board and cut it into a + shape. Tape the Starbucks brown paper bag to the horizontal strip and place under your dog. Tape to other side of +. Use a cup lid as topper. :) THE CLASSIC: SANTA DOG
Full costume from Dollarama, though I'm sure you can buy a prettier more expensive one at any pet store ;) CHRISTMAS TREE DOG
This one is my favourite. Make sure if you're doing this you plug in the lights after they've been placed on your dog so they don't get too warm. The star is from Dollarama (surprise, surprise) and I used pipe cleaners around the points of the bottom two pieces that goes around his neck.
THE HOLIDAY HIPSTER DOG
Plaid scarf & glasses, need I say more to achieve a "hipster" look for your dog? Well actually a toque would have been perfect but it was hard enough to get the glasses to stay on sooooo....
