Homemade Bat Dog Costume

Homemade Bat Dog Costume

My daughter has a 4 month old puppy named Miles and not wanting to exclude him in the Halloween fun but with time running out, I made him a simple Homemade Bat Dog Costume. This costume took about 20 minutes to make and cost about one dollar.

Using pipe insulation cut into strips I made a simple harness that Velcros onto the dog. I formed a collar around the neck, a strip around the chest and a small piece attaching the two rings along the back.

I drew bat wings onto craft foam and cut them out. Next I glued small strips of pipe insulation in and around the edges of the wings to form detail. I then glued this to the harness.

I made the head piece with fun fur which I hot glued at the seams, instead of sewing. I used Velcro as a fastener under the dog's chin. I made the ears and hot glued them on. I painted everything with black acrylic paint to cover the white edges of the hot glue. We think Miles is a very cute bat!

Homemade Little Red Ridinghood Dog Costume

by Kim
(Oakwood Hills Illinois)


I put this costume together because I have Alaskan Malamutes that everyone always says looks likes wolves. So as I was brain storming for a costume, I remembered childhood stories. Little Red Riding Hood came to mind when the Big Bad Wolf disguised himself as grandma. I thought what a great idea. So the making of the costume began. If you notice, grandma in that picture is my young dog that I thought would never keep those glasses on. I made his bonnet out of a shower cap and sewed wolf ears to the top, I then took the lenses out of an old pair of sun glasses and threw a shawl on him. My older dog, little red riding hood, was a red cape, and I sewed yellow ribbon in the hood for the blond locks of hair. Both dogs did great, kept the glasses on for an entire 3 hours of a doggie halloween party at the obedience school that I attend. Everyone loved the costume so much that they won 2nd place.

Coolest Peacock Dog Costume 16

Peacock Dog Costume

Peacock Dog Costume

We took our Fox Terrier to a local contest and did very well with this easy peacock dog costume. Just take a bright blue and can have green on it, jacket ,sweater, or shirt. Then buy one of those feather type masks. Take the elastic off and attach blue ribbon to tie it on. You will want to be able to tie it in two places so it will fit snug and not move around.

Then get some Peacock feathers and some wide blue elastic to make a small band to attach the feathers. Measure and Cut the band so that it fits the dogs tail and will stay in place. Sew it together like a ring. Slide that on you dogs tail. Then just stick the feathers in the band.

It worked well for ours because Fox Terries carry their tail up. Your ready to go!

Homemade Corn Dog Costume

For Halloween I wanted to dress my Daschund, Penny up as a hotdog but then I felt that that was too commonplace. Therefore I decided upon a corndog costume instead.

I hand sewed the entire costume right down to the brown felt body. I used yellow crushed velvet and polyfil to create the kernels and green felt to make the leaves.
