Costume by Tina H., Youngstown, OH

All you need to buy for this lost dog Halloween costume is a small stuffed dog and a pair of sweat pants at least one or two sizes larger than your size.

I used plastic grocery bags to make the large butt cheeks. I first stuffed 2 bags with other bags then inserted them into the pants securing them with safety pins.

I took a picture of the stuffed dog with my digital camera to make the ‘Lost Dog’ sign which I pinned to the front and back of an oversized shirt (I used a maternity one).

The hardest part of this Halloween costume was sewing the dog into the crack of the sweatpants. The kids loved it!

Total Spent: $20
