5 Tips For Selecting Matching Costumes For You And Your Pet

1. Consider your pet's personality:If your furry friend is the shy and reserved type, then a costume that covers them up completely might be a better option than something that is revealing or too flashy.

On the other hand, if your pup loves to be the center of attention, then a more outrageous costume might be just the thing!

2. Think about what you're comfortable with: It's important to make sure that both you and your pet are comfortable with the costumes you select. If you're not comfortable wearing something revealing, then don't force your pet to wear something similar!

3. Choose a theme: One great way to narrow down your choices is to choose a theme for your costumes. This could be anything from your favorite TV show to a holiday.

4. Consider your pet's size: It's important to make sure that the costume you select is a good fit for your pet. A costume that is too big could be dangerous, while one that is too small might be uncomfortable.

5. Have fun!: The most important thing is to have fun with it! If you and your pet are happy and comfortable, then that's all that matters.

Pumpkin Costumes

Achieving a timeless look on Halloween is easy when you choose a pumpkin costume. You could coordinate with the whole family by dressing as matching pumpkins or include your furry friend and children in a group Halloween costume as a pumpkin patch.

What You'll Need:

-A couple of T-shirts

-Cotton or Polyester

-A pair of scissors

-Sewing machine (Needle and Thread)

-Ribbon (drawstring)

-Paper plate

Instructions:

1. To start, cut both T-shirts from right beneath the armhole. This will give you two cylinder-shaped pieces of fabric. Next, put one piece inside out while leaving the other with its right side out. 

2. Next, you will take both pieces of fabric and put them together. One piece of cloth will go inside the other - be sure to line up the edges exactly and pin them in place at the top and bottom. Make vertical markings with chalk along the pinned edge.

3. After completing all the aforementioned steps, you can start sewing. First, sew the top channel, then move on to the vertical channels. As for the bottom channel, leave it open as we still need to stuff it later.

4. Stuff the vertical channels with stuffing, and sew the bottom channel. Lastly, insert a piece of ribbon in the top and bottom channels.

5. For yourself and your kids, find some orange shirts and cut off the sleeves. You can also put on some black leggings to make things more comfortable. Your dog is going to be the star of the show with this costume! Just put a paper plate in front of their chest and draw a pumpkin face on it.

6. If you want to take things to the next level, you can create a whole pumpkin patch. All you need is some green felt and hot glue. Cut out some leaves from the green felt and glue them onto your shirt. You can also add some stems by cutting them out of brown felt and gluing them on.

Mermaid Costume

This cute matching dog is perfect for all the beach-loving pups out there. The Mermaid dog costume is perfect for those who want to dress up as their favorite sea creature.

What You'll Need:

-A blue or green t-shirt or dress

-A pair of scissors

-A piece of tulle or fabric in a contrasting color

Instructions:

1. Cut the bottom of the shirt or dress into a “fin” shape. You can make it as long or short as you like.

2. Cut a piece of tulle or fabric into a long strip. This will be used to create the mermaid's tail.

3. Tie the strip of tulle or fabric around your pup's waist.

4. Voila! Your pup is now a mermaid. Your dog is going to be the star of the show with this cute costume!

5. For yourself, find a blue or green shirt and cut the bottom into a “fin” shape. You can also wear leggings or shorts in a contrasting color.
