Sometimes commercial costumes are just not right for your dog. Your dog deserves a costume with enough character to reflect his inner personality. In those cases, only a do-it-yourself costume will do. Are you feeling a little overwhelmed by all of the dog costume options available online? Check out five creative, homemade dog costumes that you can customize for your dog.
Chia Pet Dog Costume. I had never considered turning my dog into a Chia Pet, but this Halloween costume idea is adorable. The Chia Pet dog costume uses plastic aquarium plants to create the familiar Chia Pet appearance, and it comes together for less than $20.
Simba the Lion Dog Costume. A simple, homemade lion mane transforms your best friend into a ferocious lion. The instructions for this fun, lion dog costume are straightforward and inexpensive, and I think it is even a costume that my anti-costume, foxhound would consider.
Hula Dancer Dog Costume. Why not turn your lovely little lady into a hula dancing dog for Halloween? This creative idea uses fun hula party necessities to create a quick and easy, no-sew, tropical themed, Halloween costume that turns heads and brings smiles at your dog's next Halloween bash.
Cerberus the Three Headed Dog Costume. Creating a Cerberus costume for your dog requires a little more work and artistic talent than some of the easier DIY Halloween costumes, but it is well worth the effort. Can you imagine the faces of the other dog owners at the dog park Halloween bash when you arrive with a truly one of a kind costume?
Thing 1 and Thing 2. Do you need a family costume idea that includes the dogs or an idea for multiple pets? Cat in the Hat costumes never go out of style. Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes help create a fun, family friendly theme. Perhaps your cat could be the notorious Cat in the Hat, flanked by his kitty or puppy roommates in Thing 1 and Thing 2 suits? With just a little creativity, fabric and embellishments, you can bring the magical world of Dr. Seuss to your furry friends this year.
