Owner and Pet Costumes for Halloween Fun
Halloween Couples Costume With Your Dog: Surfer Girl and Shark
How To Make The Human's Surfboard
The surf board is made from foam core board found at a local Staples store. Using a utility knife this costume maker cut a rounded edge at the top and traced a jagged edge as a guide to cut out the shark bite side. Paint the foam with some bright surfer board paint and use some colorful tape to create a surfboard look.
How To Make The Dog's Shark Costume
Draw a fin shape on your foam and cut it out using a utility knife. Once the foam fin is cut, make sure it's the right size for your pet. If it's too big, trim it till it's the correct size. A second piece of foam core was cut in a small rectangular shape to use as support for the fin.
Find some stretchy fabric and measure your dog around the wide part of their chest. Cut the fabric a bit larger than that measurement so the edges will overlap. Use self adhesive velcro as a fastener. Make sure it's a good fit or the material will slide off your pup. Attach the small triangle shape foam core to the inside of the fabric and glue the top fin onto the material using something pretty strong like E6000 craft glue.
Wayne And Garth - Pet And Owner Halloween Costume Idea
Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World is an easy couples costume for you and your dog. To dress as Wayne you will need a Wayne's World baseball cap...you can print the logo from your computer and glue it onto a cap, a plaid shirt, a T-shirt and jeans. Garth's costume, the one the dog is dressed in, is a blue denim shirt, glasses, and a T-shirt. You can see in the picture, Wayne has an inflatable guitar. I bet these two are about to sing Bohemian Rhapsody.

Willy Wonka Human And Canine Oompa Loompa Costume
If you don't own a dog or cat, you probably don't get the pet and owner dress up alike thing. And pet owners don't really care if you get it or not...cause they love their animals just like the members of the family they are. Someday, when you do get a pet, you will understand quickly, how connected a pet and it's owner can be.
Love my dog, love to dress up in couples costumes with him. He is my best friend, and he loves to have some dress up costume fun on Halloween, just like I do.
