This is my dog Cletus. I dressed him up as Santa Clause for Halloween because he brings joy to everyone.
I used a kid's large sweat shirt and just added fuzzy fabric for the trim. His wig was made out of a winter hat with a hole cut in the top for his face to fit through snuggly (or a ski mask can be used). Yarn was looped though with a large fabric needle and knotted on the inside for the hair.
The Santa hat was secured with a fabric elastic under his chin and the beard was sewn onto the elastic. The beard was just cut from the excess fuzzy fabric from the trim. I used black fabric for a belt and simply tied it around his waist. Black socks were used for boots (he has very large paws).
Finishing touches were added like small bells sewn onto his chest so they jingled when he walked. Finally, Santa's sack was made from black fabric stuffed with cotton stuffing and tied with red and green ribbon.
Cletus is a very tolerant 2 1/2 year old American Bulldog; he looked great in his Santa Claus Dog costume.

My husband and I don't have any kids, so we live out our Halloween costume fantasies through our Dog. It's a good thing Petey is such a good sport! This year, Petey was a mouse caught in a homemade mouse trap. It is made of Styrofoam, so it is lightweight and easily portable.
We painted the Styrofoam to resemble a real mouse trap and used felt markers to give it a more realistic look. The finishing touch was a glued on sponge cut to look like a wedge of Swiss cheese.
This Homemade Pet Dog Halloween Costume is an inexpensive and fun costume that could be used for people "or dogs" of all ages.
I wore this costume to a party myself. I got underneath the wire "trap" and strapped it around my waist with a shoelace. It stood up 7 ft tall. It was very eye catching. My husband went as an exterminator. His outfit included a pair of coveralls with fake rats and bugs on his shoulders and weed sprayer marked poison strapped on his back.

When my kids were little I always made their costumes for them. Those costumes then were handed down to nieces and nephews. Now my kids are grown, so it’s the dogs turn. We always thought they look like Mad’s Spy vs Spy cartoon characters so that’s what I set out to make, Homemade Spy vs Spy Dog Costumes.
The first problem I had was that I had three dogs and there are only two Spies. I decided the littlest one would be a bomb or a stick of dynamite. Making the coats was easy; getting the right arm length was a little more difficult. Dogs aren’t very cooperative about sitting for fittings; I went through a lot of treats!
The hats were another challenge; I needed to make a space for their heads to sit in so they wouldn’t fall off. It took me many, many hours to make the costumes and after I finally stopped laughing, this is the result.

This is the perfect Homemade Cow Costume for a Pet Dog for my baby. She is a rare unique colored piebald Dachshund which is black and white spotted. The little sign on her reads eat more chicken and was designed by my husband.
We got the idea when she was pregnant last year that she looked like a huge dairy cow, so this year we dressed her up!!
This is Farmer Mc'Harley. He is a eight (8) year old Chihuahua from Chandler, Arizona. Harley loves dressing up for Halloween, as this is his 7th year entering costume contests. My grandmother helped me make his Pet Dog Homemade Halloween Costume. We were able to even customize a tractor for him to ride.
