Homemade Lost Puppy Costume

I saw this costume for sale on the internet and thought I can do better then that and make my own Homemade Lost Puppy Costume. I did purchase quite a few of the items but all were clearanced out or from a thrift store.

I sewed the breast inserts and fat suit out of an old sheet and stuffed them till no more stuffing would go in. I then used an old belt and attached it to the fat suit so that I could tie it in place around my waist. I sewed the breasts to the house dress that I found on clearance at a discount store. I then put curls in and then put baby powder in my hair to make it look gray. I used old jewelry and glasses.

I exaggerated my makeup by using bright read lipstick, blue eyeshadow and using a little brown eyeliner in my already laugh lines and wrinkles to age myself a bit. I wore knee high stocking and slippers. Then I attached the puppy in the back just using safety pins. The puppy sign I made out of cardboard and a paint stick. I took pictures and then printed the pics of the puppy on my printer at home.

I love trying to come up with a costume people would think of me wearing, that is the best part of Halloween.

Coolest Homemade Toddler Girl Puppy Costume 14

Homemade Toddler Girl Puppy Costume

Homemade Toddler Girl Puppy Costume

My 21-month-old daughter loves dogs. Every time she sees a dog she yells, "puppy! puppy!" When she sees a new kind of animal and she doesn't know the name for it yet, she says "puppy!" So it was pretty obvious what she should be for Halloween.

I went looking online for ideas of a Homemade Toddler Girl Puppy Costume and found this website. I'm not sure where the basset hound inspiration came from, except I know I wanted long droopy ears.

I picked up a nice brown hooded sweatshirt that she can wear for months, if I had the heart to remove the costume pieces, which I don't and a pair of brown leggings at a discount clothing store for about $15. The rest is a couple of dollars' worth of felt, ribbon and thread.

The ears, tummy, and tail are all felt, with ribbon for the collar and a bow around the tail. I made my own patterns out of regular paper, then hand-sewed these pieces over three nights after my daughter had gone to bed. (While watching Project Runway on TiVo.)

Coolest Poodle Costume 10

Pink Poodle Costume

Pink Poodle Costume

Last year my daughter wanted a Pink Poodle Costume. I've always made her costumes (she's 8 now). While in Target I saw these "curly" scarves. And I knew they would be great for the curly fur of the poodle.

I bought pink sweatshirt and pants. And a pink knit cap. Made long ears and the tail out of pink felt. Then handsewed the curly scarves on the top of cap, ends of ears, ends of tail. The "butt" and shoulders. And made cuffs for the wrists and ankles.

She also wore Pink fluffy slippers on her feet and pink fleece gloves. I had to go back to Target a few times to have enough scarves but it was worth it. We got a pink w/rhinestones dog collar from Petsmart and had a Pink heart dog tag made with her name on it! The make up turned out great!

She was a big hit!

I found your photos when I Googled a Pink Poodle Costume, because that's what my granddaughter wants to be for Halloween. It is absolutely incredible. I showed her the picture and she got so excited. And now of course I can't find the "curly scarves or fabric of any kind". I always make my grandchildrens costumes and now I'm stumped. Does anyone have any idea, where I could get this type fabric?

You could also round bath sponges for the curly hair part (the ones with a string attached and mesh sewn all around). You could get them at the dollar store so that they are inexpensive!

Hello, Our daughter also would like to be a pink poodle for Halloween. We have searched extensively and can't find faux pink poodle fur anywhere! We can find white, blue, purple, brown, etc. But NO pink! We live in the SF Bay area. Any suggestions? thank you.

Homemade Puppies for Sale Costume

We dressed her up as a puppy by using a black sweatshirt and adding patches of faux fur, white and brown. We added faux fur ears as well and then the rest in black (shoes & pants).

We got a box and covered it with brown paper after poking holes into it that will hold the ropes that go on the shoulders of the child. We then bought stuffed puppies (4 of them) and glued them in the box with their heads popping out and added a collar and painted her face.
