This is a homemade headless horseman dog costume I made myself. The frame for the headless horseman is made out of PVC pipe, then it is wrapped with batting to fill out the body. I then used a child’s shirt and pair of pants.

I purchased a cape and used a red piece of fabric to make the neck look like it was bloody. I put a pumpkin on the hand that is held up in the air and has a flashing light inside. I made the saddle out of fake leather fabric and the bridle I made out of vinyl and put two rings on the side to make it look like he had a bit in his mouth.

I made a breastplate out of vinyl and also the cinch out of vinyl. They fasten on his chest and under his belly to hold the horseman on. It only weighs about 5 lbs so it is very easy for him to carry. He loves to get dressed up in his costumes and gets so excited when I am making them and he has to have a “fitting”.

I have won many contests with this homemade headless horseman dog costume and everyone loves it.
