Need a last minute costume idea? If you made a last minute decision to attend a howl-o-ween event and the pet store is out of costumes in your dog’s size, have no fear, here are some easy-to-put-together costume ideas for your dog.
Your favorite Celebrity- whether it be Donald trump, Miley Cyrus, or LeBron James, it’s easy to put together a human look-a-like costume. You can find old clothes in your closet, head down to the thrift shop for a good deal, or hit up the little kid clothes section at the store. Hair pieces can be made out of yarn that is glued to a barrette or headband that your dog can wear.
This same concept works for all human related costumes, be it a business man, scientist, jersey girl, or fitness fanatic.
Mummy- rolls of guaze are all you need to get this look. You can use a sharpie to make the guaze look dirty or simply take the guaze outside and rub it in the dirt. Brush it off and then wrap it around your dog (but not too tight).
A Flying object- An airplane, butterfly, or even a UFO can be created using cardboard. The cardboard can be covered by white paper, colored felt squares, or tin foil and decorated for your desired effect. Antennae can be created by using pipe cleaner and a headband.
All of these are inexpensive ways to create a unique costume for your dog. But a word of caution: Last minute costumes can be a total disaster or a stroke of genius. Whatever you end up with, just remember to never underestimate the power of pipe cleaner, felt squares, yarn, construction paper, cardboard, tin foil, and glue. Hit up your local craft store for even more supplies and further inspiration.Here are some creative homemade costumes:
