Trump and Hillary Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Pets

This homemade costume for pets entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Emily, the 'Trump and Hillary' costume creator:

Fin (my dog) went as Trump and I went as Hillary. The idea was mostly based off of the fact that Fin and Trump are orange but I was excited to transform into Hillary for a day too! His suit is part of the president dog costume from Target. He and I both used the campaign buttons included in the costume pack for his suit. I altered them from just "democrat" and "republican" to better suit Trump and Hillary by printing out the words I wanted, cutting them to the shape of the button, and using double sided permanent adhesive tape to secure them. I used the same tape to prevent the buttons from falling off throughout the day. He has a big head so I had to make his wig myself. I bought a white patch of furry fabric from Joann Fabrics, cut it to shape and size, and used yellow hair spray coloring from target to get the light yellow color. I attached it with fabric glue to a soft full circle sports headband for comfort (he never tried to take it off!). I got my navy pants suit and white turtleneck from Target. My hair is very long so I used a lot of hair spray and bobby pins to structure the front and then fold my hair under itself in the back to get a fake shorter looking cut. I used dark brown and white eyeliner to highlight and lowlight the age lines on my face and worked from an online photo to achieve Hillary's makeup look. Here is a picture of us having a great time at the Mutt Strut rescue charity event in Chicago!
