For the first time in my independent adult life, I live somewhere where I expect to be gettign trick-or-treaters!! Very Happy I'm pretty excited about this.

So... although I'm normally against dressing up dogs, I think I'm going to make an exception and put Huxley in a costume this year. But I didn't see any mastiff-sized costumes at Petsmart. Sad

Where do they sell mastiff-sized costumes?? If online, which sites do you recommend?
Or are there easy ones I can make myself, armed with some fabric glue?
And most importantly.... I need ideas!!


Right now, I'm envisioning Huxley as a ginormous pumpkin... but I would love to have input from others who have dressed up their mastiffs and hear what worked/didn't work.

Is it better to buy a human child's costume for mastiffs? What human size works best?? Any particular child age?

I usually buy adult human costumes for mine Very Happy
Or recycle pieces of the kids costumes, I go to thrift stores etc since we are always on a budget.
I do think a pumpkin would be fairly easy to make perhaps a simple orange felt sewed or glued to fit like a t-shirt and stuffed with some newspaper and some green felt to put on top of her head like leaves with a brown stem?

So far we're ranging from toddler to adult human lol.

Missy I like your pumpkin construction idea. I do like the puffy pumpkin look, but didn't even think of newspapers to fill the pumpkin. I can also see Huxley enjoying destroying it afterwards haha.

I was browsing for dog costumes online today and saw a cute shark/jaws costume. I think a dinosaur might be cute too... hmmmmm!!

I think that I'm just going to get one of those Rasta Dred hats. Gort would make a great Mastiffarian.
