Top 5 DIY Halloween Costumes for Your Dog


#2 Underdog


Why we like it: This is almost impossibly easy to make, and well,we like the idea that our dog has an alter ego and can save us from evil villains -- also that he can shine our shoes when not in super dog mode.


There's no need to fear this one, since this character is always working for good, not evil. And there is no need to be bothered by the details that go into making his costume. You will be able to find everything at your local fabric store. You will need a red child-sized T-shirt, a square of white felt fabric for the U, a half yard of blue fabric for the cape, Velcro to attach at the neck to hold the cape in place, and needle and thread. To make attaching the U to the T-shirt easier, iron on hem tape or fabric glue can be used. We have included an image of what you want your T-shirt to look like, with the distinctively shaped U for Underdog.
