Oscar the Grouch
|Costume type:||Costumes for Pets|
This homemade costume for pets entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jaclyn, the 'Oscar the Grouch' costume creator:
Missy is roaming the streets of DC this Halloween as Oscar the Grouch. I got the idea because Missy is nicknamed grouchy because with her underbite she often looks grouchy. Her home-made costume started with two different shades (mixed together) of doggie-safe hair dye. To give her some extra grump, I added some fake eyebrows to her by super-gluing bobby pins to the back of the eyebrows and placing the finished product in her hair. I got a doggie-food storage container and distressed it with dirt, grass, brown spray paint, and dropping it (to get dents) to use as her trash can. I added her grouchy "scram" sign and an old banana peel to finish the costume off.
In picture two below, Missy was placed in her costume by dumpsters with the rest of the scene fully staged by me so it looked like she was in an Oscar the Grouch environment. I cut down garbage bags to make mini trash bag heaps, placed empty boxes behind her, laid out old newspaper and other trash and place her on top of an old wooden shipping platform.
The whole thing costs about $80 at the end of the day.
