dog

This little Shih-Tzu is named Munchkin, and for Halloween his human transformed him into an adorable teddy bear. Cindy Roth, made the costume and shared details on how you can make one for your pet:

Measure your dog in the front from feet to top of head (Munchkin is 14?). Buy a teddy bear in similar color to your dog in their size (I got hers on Amazon for $30). Cut the face off, cut the bottom of the feet off, cut open the back. Take all the stuffing out except for the arms. Bear only goes on front part of their body/legs and back half is exposed. Put a string or velcro through the back behind the neck to tie/close. The bear’s arms hung down, so I sewed them up a bit higher so they stuck out to sides more instead of hanging down. Took me maybe 15 minutes to make!

It looks pretty easy to duplicate and wouldn’t cost too much, unless you’ve got a big dog. I wouldn’t try this one with a German Shepard.

Game Of Bones [Cosplay]

game-of-bones

These costume-wearing doggies are playing The Game Of Bones, which simply requires that they look absolutely adorable. Yay! It looks like they won!

The above set, which is a tribute to Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons, was created by Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard of Dallas, Texas. The three ladies worked for nearly two months to create the costumes and the throne. The bones are made from foam and are covered with bondo resin and drywall mud, and then they were painted to look like iron. The dogs participated in a couple of costume contests in Dallas: Bull-O-Ween and Pug-O-Ween, which are held in order to raise support for rescue organizations in the area. Last year, the dogs won both competitions with their Breaking Bad-themed costumes. You can check that award-winning ensemble after the break along with more Game Of Bones pics.

Halloween can be really rough for costume-wearing dogs. Maymo the Lemon Beagle and his sister Penny went trick-or-treating this year, and their humans made them wear a whole mess of different costumes. But all the wardrobe changes were worth it in the end thanks to some tasty doggie treats.

This Chewbacca dog might not pull your arm out of its socket, but he could kill you with cute. The picture was posted by redditor ejara80 whose friend dressed up the little pooch and entered him in a Star Wars costume contest at Petco. He won third place, which seems entirely unjust because he is the cutest ever. Perhaps there was a Jedi mind trick involved in the judging.

It doesn’t matter how badly your day started because this little cosplaying Corgi will put a smile on your face. His name is Kiba and he’s cosplayed everyone from Link to Mario to an assassin. He is adorable and I would very much like to steal him and make him my own.

Okay, so not really that terrifying since it’s a life vest for your dog with a bright blue fin on the back. Still, this life vest will keep your pooch floating even if he gets too tired to paddle, and the fin is even functional. Should you need to grab your dog, it’s like a built-in handle. All the most stylish dogs are sure to be sporting shark fin life vests this summer.

The cat version of Far Cry 3‘s Vaas looks even scarier, and possibly more insane. It’s the fault of Russian photographer and artist Nikol Lisova who posed her cat, Masaya, along with some poor stuffed animal buried up to its neck. Yup, with that mohawk and the gleam in its eye, the cat is definitely scarier than Vaas.
