ROAR! Just finished Baxter's lion Halloween costume

    Newer Older

    I knew I wanted to make Baxter a mane for Halloween, but I wasn't sure how to do it.

    At first, I was looking for yarn. There was a beauty supply store next to the craft shop, so I went in and bought some hair weaves (one blond, one strawberry blond). The craft store only had white and black elastic, but I remember sewing pink and beige elastic to my ballet slippers, so I went to a dance shop and bought 4 feet of beige elastic to use as the base. I sewed the weaves together, then sewed them in circles around the elastic.

    There are about six layers of hair on the mane as you see it.

      Brilliant! You should do this professionally. Is there a career path for dog costumers? :)
