I had the pleasure of working with the DIY Network to create tutorials for four awesome handmade Halloween costumes for dogs. My parent's fabulous pugs acted as my muses and models. I love how they turned out, but I've got to say getting these final shots was a serious workout! I am so impressed with dog photographers (this one is my favorite) it's WAY harder than capturing kids! From no-sew to a tad elaborate, there's a doggy costume for every crafter and every pup! The instructions also make it easy to create these for any size dog, so while owning a pug is awesome, it's not a requirement!
The most complicated, but also the coolest, these bat wings make for a spooktacular costume. I think Petunia here looks like a gargoyle or Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Full Tutorial for Bat Dog Costume.
No sewing required! This super simple monster costume is also super cute. With just a few simple, cheap materials (and maybe half an hour, max) you can create your own pet monster. Full Tutorial for No-Sew Monster Dog Costume.
Flower power! Encircle your pup in petals for the sweetest costume this Halloween. My step by step instructions make this floral disguise totally doable. If you have an especially agreeable cat, they would look smashing as a flower as well! Full Tutorial for Flower Costume for Pets.
Do you dress up your pets for Halloween? My family once had a pug named Bruno who lived for a costume, Halloween was his favorite day of the year! RIP Beantown, I sure miss you, especially when I need pictures of a dressed-up doggie!
