Costume type:  Costumes for Pets
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for pets entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Gail, the 'Pirate Pet Rescue' costume creator:

Our costume is a Pirate Ship turned into a Pet Rescue Ark. We made it to help raise money for animals in need, thus the sign "Animals Are The Treasure". Katie Rose (female Shih Tzu - 3 lb teacup) and Dempsey Odele (male Poodle - 3 lb teacup) are in Pirate Costumes and will ride in the ship in their pet stroller.

We purchased the ship frame for $36 then customized it with 3D waves, an Octopus and Fish. We added cannons (with smoke) and a mast with a Parrot to attach it to the stroller. In addition, there are stuffed pets looking out the portals.

We purchase Katie and Dempsey's costumes, but then modified them to fit their tiny bodies. Katie is in a full skirt pirate dress and Dempsey is in a fancy pirate suit.

We hope to be a blessing to many animals in need with our Pirate Rescue Ship.

This is such an awesome idea! Very unique and not only adorable, but for a very worthy cause as well. Hats off to Gail and David, the creators, and to their beloved pets, Katie Rose and Dempsey Odele, for their efforts to help those who cannot speak up for themselves!
