1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Needing ideas for a halloween costume for a Great Pyrenees! on: September 20, 2011 01:15:03 PM
The background: So, last year I adopted the coolest dog ever, Hugo (I'm not bias or anything, lol)!  Wink  He is Great Pyrenees and is roughly around 110 lbs (but he looks a lot bigger bc of all of the fur). Any-who, there is a big event where I live every October with the organization I volunteer with called "WoofStock" & you bring your dog, dress them up for Halloween, & hang out with other crazy animal people  Cheesy   Hugo didnt get to go last year bc, being a rescue, he had heartworm disease & was being treated for them. So this will be his WoofStock debut!

The Question: I wanted to dress him up in a Halloween costume (which I'm sure I could figure out a way to make, I'm good like that - LOL) But...I cant think of anything good for him to be?!?!?!  Huh I originally thought of trying to make him something based on his big white fluffiness, but the only 3 things I could come up with were 1) An armored bear from the Golden Compass - but apparently I'm like the ONLY one to have seen that movie. 2) The flying dog thing from A Never Ending Story (I think it's name is like Falcor, or something) but he doesnt really have an outfit. And lastly 3) a Coca Cola Bear - which I may still do bc its the only thing I can think of, but I didnt know if it was lame  Huh

* The only big considerations I have is that I am going to have to make it a light (in weight & coverage, not color) costume bc I live in Alabama near the Gulf Coast and it's still 85-90 at the end of October (and no, I dont shave him down - he stays inside & is a couch potato  Grin). 

So sorry that took For-ev-er (she says in a sandlot voice, haha)! And...without further ado... here is a pic of my handsome man for putting up with my insane rambling!  Shocked
  *Thanks so much for any suggestions/comments!
