A word from Jennifer, the 'Two Firemen and their Dalmatian' costume creator:
The oldest decided he wanted to be a fireman. So I decided both boys would be firemen and my daughter would be the dalmatian. Every year we make something for them to ride in and this year we decided to make it a fire truck. We purchased the firemen costumes off of Amazon and I made the Dalmatian costume out of a white onesie and white tights. I cut out black felt circles and glued them to the tights and a onesie. I ordered the paws and ears off of Amazon and had somebody make the tutu for me. The kids already had a John Deere Gator so my husband built the fire truck around the gator with cardboard. He then painted it and stenciled on the letters and numbers and hand you the windows and lines. The ladders are made out of PVC pipes and glued together then held on by hook screws. The fire extinguishers I made out of 2 liter bottles and painted them red. I then took the tops off of spray bottles and screw them on the top of the two leaders and painted them silver. Then I took a piece of black tubing and cut it in half and placed it over the nozzle of the sprayer. And I printed out the extinguisher instructions and glued it to the bottles. I also printed out the fire emblem and my husband glued them to the doors of the fire truck. Then he took clear cups turn them upside down and cut the bottoms out then glued them on the top of the fire truck. Then we placed red lights inside of the cups. He also glued lights on the front and the back to look like headlights and taillights. My husband then took his cell phone and downloaded a fire truck siren and played it while they were driving. Everyone loved the fire truck and there costumes. Almost every house we went to they had to come out and take a picture because they couldn't believe that the truck was made out of just cardboard. And best of all the kids loved riding in the fire truck
