Snowplow the Astronaut
|Costume type:||Costumes for Pets|
This homemade costume for pets entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Joan, the 'Astronaut' costume creator:
Snowplow,our St. Bernard, was an astronaut to represent an "Out of This World" theme for a community event in recognition of all the heroic astronauts that have advanced our space exploration and contributed to advances in science and medicine.
As a therapy dog Snowplow provides comfort for children that are suffering. Since he is often the center of attention for the children, putting him in "space" if only for a night seemed appropriate to provide an opportunity for the children to focus on the many accomplishments that have been "Out of this World" thanks to the care and effort of our marvelous astronauts.
The costume was patterned after our NASA astronauts and homemade in part using patches and materials from the NASA Space Camp.Preparing a costume for a St. Bernard is essentially designing it for an adult. Of course the space boots were for four paws instead of two feet and sized for a toddler x-large.
In essence this provided a special time for the children to share,learn and of course have fun. The friendship they have with Snowplow the Astronaut made it a moment they will remember and an experience in action to recognize our astronauts.
