This homemade costume for pets entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Dawn, the 'First Down' costume creator:
This is my Bengal cat Natoth wearing a Green Bay Packers uniform. The base costume is a Build a Bear costume from which I took the jersey and helmet. I added her name to the back of the jersey. The shorts with the costume wouldn't fit so I bought the smallest pair of girl's tights that I could find, cut them to the right length, dyed them gold and made the stripes from green and white fabric trim.
I also created the background and props. The photo is an artists rendering of Lambeau Field. I made the field from green felt and used fabric paint to draw in the markings. The goal post is made of Styrofoam tubes and PVC plumbing joints spray painted yellow. The wind direction flags are pieces of red fabric trim.
The overall cost was around $40.00.
