Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and overall season (I maintain the right to say the very same thing about Christmas in two months). Once I see those pumpkins starting to pop up way too early in late August, my heart grows three sizes. The past few years Layla June dressed up as Snow White, and Henry in his trusty pumpkin tee, and I told anyone who would listen that for Halloween this year I wanted to be Elle Woods with LayJune as Baxter and/or Dorothy with HenBear as Toto. With the sudden passing of my best girl this summer, Elle Woods was out and my desire to celebrate and do as much with Henry as possible was in.
First up? Matching mommy-and-me Halloween costumes. As many as possible. Starting with this... (click Read More to see the whole post and all the adorable pupper pictures!).
Henry: "umm, mama, I get those treats over there after this, right?"
Since Hen already had his beloved pumpkin tshirt, matching dog and mom pumpkin costumes were the obvious first choice. I did a super easy DIY pumpkin costume for me, including pumpkin stem hat, and we were set! Since I already had the dress and tshirt, total price for this matching look was a whopping $2.
Want to make this for yourself and your pupper? I've got an easy breezy DIY video coming to the blog tomorrow, or you can watch it right here now. Here are the supplies I used or similar items:
Pumpkin Dog Tee
Green Pipe Cleaners
Black Felt w adhesive backing
Have you and your pup ever dressed up together for Halloween? Let me know in the comments or over on instagram @therealkerryfrances! We've got three more Halloween costumes coming your way so make sure to follow along. Now I need to go get more treats to keep convincing Henry that this is a fun game ;) Thanks for reading!
