This is our cat, Biggles.
I was planning on putting her into a cute pink argyle sweater with a choker collar and saddle shoe booties to make her a sock hop cat for Halloween, but she has other ideas. Maybe if I could get her to come out from under the bed I could make another attempt at getting the sweater on, but right now not even treats can lure her.
If you have a more cooperative pet, there are some outrageously cute and outrageously ridiculous costumes you can buy or make for your four pawed companions. At Pampered Whiskers, a portion of your purchase is donated to shelters and rescue organizations [more info on their site] so you can feel extra good about putting a sombrero or crown on your dog or cat.
Down Under Dog Designs can turn your pooch into the Big Bad Wolf [custom sizing available]!
They have a great selection of costumes [like this “Leap Frog Hoodie” – omg!] and tons of pet accessories. If you’re NYC, you can visit their flagship store on E. 20th!
And if you’re up for making something on your own, how about turning your beloved Fido into a Corn Dog?!?! Love it! You can find the instructions at Doggie Stylish, where artist Karen Friesecke and her ‘spokesmodel’ Jersey offer lots of great products and tutorials [check out her blog].
