Dog In Costume: Fauna

by Patricia and Catherine Moore
(Jacksonville, FL)


Cyd is a dog my daughter rescued from someone who was unable to care for her properly. Cyd's costume complements Molly's (See Halloween Costume For Dog: Flora).

To make this costume, get a black tank top. Take the letters that spell "FAUNA" and pin, sew or glue them somewhere on the tank top where people will be able to read the word. Find pictures of animals and glue them onto cardboard. Take hot glue and add pins to the back of the cardboard pieces. Pin these onto the tank top in a pattern you like.

For an extra effect, you can add a stuffed animal such as the monkey shown here.

how cute...put don't like the pin idea
by: Viki

I missed this costume but it is also wonderful. Dogtober fest was a great time. It raises money for the spay/neuter clinic and everyone gives generously!

Just a word of warning about using pins to put things on a dog...they can come open because of the movement of the dog and stick into him/her. I know from personnal "growing" pains of my own. Hot glue and a touch of sewing works best and will last much longer and is much safer for your pup.

(do not hot glue anything while it is on the dog though...smiles!)

Halloween Costume For Dog: Flora

My daughter, Catherine, and I knew we were going to go to the Dogtoberfest in Jacksonville together and she came up with the idea for the flora and fauna costumes.

Molly, who is wearing the Flora costume, is a rescue from the animal shelter.

To make her costume, I used a black tank top then sewed on the flowers. I attached the leaves on her legs to elastic. The letters were stickers. In future I would pin or sew the letters on as I think they would stay better.
