K9 Costume  
Last October I made my dog a K9 costume to wear in a local pet parade. I finally got pictures of her in it. :)




Constructing the sides and as I called it the calculator bit.


The head. (I think it looks like a helmet here lol)


Comparing shapes



Almost finished painting


Finished painting



It fits!



Finished! Time to put it on the dog.




Who knew K9 had two heads?





My friend as a ghetto The Doctor



My friend as a ghetto Amy and a mini Tardis


Me, The Doctor and K9



I had another friend dressed as another Doctor (could have been 4 or 11...I don't remember which lol) walking with us and taking pictures. My friends and I's costumes were kinda out there and hastily put together. I tbh spent more time putting together Ein's costume and then two days before the parade went 'oh crap! We need costumes!' lol


Materials used:
Body: foam sheets covered in duct tape for sturdiness and mobility, spray paint, pipe cleaners for tail
Back piece: cardboard, duct tape, spray paint, sharpie markers
Head: cardboard, duct tape, spray paint, acrylic paint. foam sheets, tape, wire for ears

There are two elastic straps and velcro on the underside of the body to keep in on. They lasted about a block before the velcro became two clogged with hair and stopped sticking. lol

My first thought was.... CORGI!!!! I love those little guys!

Second thought? AWESOME! This is so fun. Did your dog try and shake it off though? (Nice Doctor, by the way. :P )

ME TOOOOOOOO

Nah she's used to wearing things because we like to dress her up anyways and she has a harness underneath it.
She did break the top thing off because she kept trying to roll over to get petted lol

(thrift store coat and the tie is made of ribbons lol)

I've been in love with them since Dharma and Greg. Whenever I see one I think of Nunzio. :P



Ah, that helps then. HEHE, that's so cute. :D

(Hey, if it works, it works!)

I *love* your icon, btw. (I'm a pretty good crocheter, but when I tried knitting I was absolutely hopeless at it. ;-))

Thank you :)

I remember you making a comment about your horse on another post of mine from last year when I asked about making a k9 costume. :)

I was going to say, Now I want a Bebop/DW crossover, but then I saw her name was Ein and knew we were on the same wavelength. She looks adorable!

It's a corgi...what else would we have called her? lol

Thank you! :D

This k-9 is epic, even more epic as it's a corgi :D
Cassiepotato365 on October 11th, 2011 03:54 pm (UTC)
Corgis FTW! :D

Very cute! I'm glad your friend finally uploaded them, they're awesome. Your dog is far more patient than mine is, my dog wouldn't stand for any of these shenanigans.

I'm wondering if the head could have been attached separately to Ein's head? Unless it is, of course.

And plus ten points for calling your corgi 'Ein'.
Cassiepotato365 on October 11th, 2011 03:53 pm (UTC)
Me too...I've only been bugging him for a year!


The head had to be attached because while she doesn't mind wearing things on her body, she HATES hats or anything on her head. Like with a fiery burning passion. lol

Perfect - and the costume is great too. grin.

I had a corgi until a year ago - she died, and yours is so beautiful and reminds me quite a lot of Angel. (When I was growing up my Mum also had a corgi - I miss them both (the corgis - Mum is still alive) so dreadfully much. Corgi's a wonderful dogs.

Thanks :)

:'( That's sad.
Corgis are quite wonderful :)
