Homemade Three Muttsketeers Dog Costume

These 10 year old rescued greyhound siblings do everything together, including getting into trouble. They actively live by the motto, “All for One & One for All”, or should it be “All for One & One for a Biscuit!”? They will certainly do anything for a treat – including spending time wearing silly hats and capes. So we dressed them in this Homemade Three Muttsketeers Dog Costume.
The front of each costume shows the pup’s first initial in rhinestones as well as matching vine and leaf designs in iridescent glitter. The back of each costume depicts an original greyhound heraldic crest which features a white greyhound centered on a black shield which is surrounded by an iridescent white glitter filigree design that is outlined in silver cord.
The costumes include white, lace trimmed collars. Each pup sports a black cape lined in pale blue satin and decorated with black glitter fleur di lis. The costume hats are black faux felt trimmed with a row of mock pearls and a white feather.
A testament to the comfortable nature of these costumes, while wearing them, each pup took the opportunity to stretch out and enjoy a lovely nap.

My name is Tammy Chilleme, my dog Kaiah is a 3 year old resue dog, rotti mix that we have had since she was a puppy. She a wonderful disposition and enjoys wearing clothes, wont go out in the rain without her raincoat. Kaiah"s Dad works at Dominos so I decided to dress her like Daddy in a Homemade Dominos Deliver Dog Costume.
I altered a large shirt that was stained to fit her and allow her to go to the potty. The visor she has been wearing since a puppy added velcro to make smaller. Domino's Pizza box is velcroed to the shirt and doesnt fall off even while chasing lizards. Pizza is cardboard covered in fiberfill (so not flat) then PC photo paper. Paper was painted many layers of acrylic pain with texture medium (translucent) then several coats of acrylic spray for shine.
The crust is a tube of fabric stuffed then painted and glued to pizza and everything glued to box. The toppings were sculpted from polymer clay and painted. Black widow, finger, eyeball and worms.

This Dog Costume was my first homemade costume, but pretty easy to do. I started with a brown sweatsuit which included a hooded sweatshirt. I hand stitched khaki colored felt cut in random, free flowing shapes, all over the sweatshirt and pants. The ears were made of brown and khaki felt. Using fabric glue, I shaped a pipe cleaner around the edge of one piece of the ear, then placed the other atop it and hand stitched it closed. Finally, I hand stitched the ears to the hood.
The tail was a little trickier for me to get right, but I managed. I used a long remnant of brown felt, inserted a little batting and pipe cleaners, then hand stitched it closed. I attached by stitching it to her waistband. The collar was a metal key ring, which I simply wrote her name on in permanent marker, then attached to the zipper. It's been almost three years and it's still hanging in her closet.
The whole thing, including the sweatsuit, probably cost about $30 and it was so fun!
