Ollie licking his lips after eating a yummy whataburger cheeseburger
|Costume type:||Costumes for Pets|
This homemade costume for pets entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Tiffany, the 'What-A-Dog' costume creator:
My dog, Ollie, the What-A-Dog, is a fast food server for the hometown burger company, Whataburger, in Corpus Christi, Texas. I was inspired to create this costume because there are more than twenty locations of Whataburger in our city since it's establishment in 1950, and everybody loves their made-to-order burgers. The orange and white A-frame restaurant is a vintage icon of our city, so I chose to replicate it.
I created the drive-thru restaurant out of wood from the local hardware store. It was then painted very carefully, orange and white. No restaurant is complete without its name in bold letters across the top of the A-frame. Wheels were added for the ease of pulling him down the sidewalk to be able to go house to house trick-or-treating for his favorite dog treats.
Ollie, is seen wearing his favorite Whataburger t-shirt as his uniform accompanied by his must-have name tag that was repurposed out of an old name tag that belonged to his owner. For cleanliness purposes, Ollie is wearing a vintage hat made out of a poster board and a recycled Whataburger bag. He has a serving tray made from a cardboard box and topped with recycled containers from one of the local restaurants.
The empty containers and Ollie licking his lips are a sure sign of good-eating at this popular hometown favorite!
I put his picture on my social media site, and Ollie has received more than 2,500 likes on his pic. Everybody loves Ollie, the What-A-Dog!
