Pinterest Inspiration: Halloween Costumes

Even though I have been preparing for Halloween since early September, I can now publicly admit my major excitement for the holiday since it's October 1st (you may have thought that I was just a liiiiiittle bit obsessed if I made too many Halloween posts prior to October).  I did manage to sneak in my DIY dog tutu tutorial though!

As an avid pinner on Pinterest, I have been searching the site for Halloween costume inspiration.  Seeing as this is Athena's first Halloween with us, I am determined to dress her in the fanciest costume in town!  Thanks to Pinterest, I have been able to pull together some ideas to create a DIY dog friendly Wonder Woman costume for Athena.

Here is the progress that I have made so far on her costume (cape & tutu):

It can be tough to find inspiring pet costumes on the web, so I looked at kid costumes for my DIY inspiration.  If you couldn't tell already, I am all about adding a tutu to spice up a costume!  Here are some images snagged from my Halloween Costume Inspiration Pinterest board to help you get started on planning your dog's costume:

  1. I don't know that my own dogs will have costumes but our foster surely will, so hmm I don't know, I'm just not that crafty. Athena is well on her way to be a StubbyDog superhero! :)

    1. StubbyDog superhero status would be pretty cool =)

  2. Oh. My. Gosh! I love the Wonder Woman costume! Soooooo cute!

    PS - isn't it funny that three Emily's have commented on this post?!

    1. Thank you!! There are still a few finishing touches that I'm working on before the big day!

      How weird about the 3 Emily's!

  3. Athena makes a great wonder woman! I would love to dress my pups as Thing 1 and Thing 2, but without anywhere special to go, it would just be them, messing up their costumes in the woods somewhere:/

    1. haha, yeah I probably wouldn't dress Athena up if we weren't going to bring her out to show it off! When she's in the house wearing it she tries to bite it off...I hope it can last until Halloween!!!

  4. Nice post! I love it! Halloween is just around the corner so I am searching for some nice homemade halloween costume ideas to try this year's Halloween. Thanks to you I just get some idea. thanks and keep sharing nice ideas.
