The Perfect Halloween Costume

Halloween is days away so I got to do one of my favorite things – cook up some fun costumes for the pups! Penny whips up trouble, but eggs? Not so much. Next. Eko makes a dapper highwayman, but it wasn’t the right fit
Halloween is days away so I got to do one of my favorite things – cook up some fun costumes for the pups!

Penny whips up trouble, but eggs? Not so much. Next.

Eko makes a dapper highwayman, but it wasn’t the right fit

Speaking of dapper, Eko plays an excellent James Bond. I still had a feeling there was a better costume out there though

Penny is an ambush hunter, and this devilish croc photo reminded me of an even better costume idea I had a few months ago

If you remember one of my favorite nicknames for the pups, then you might have a hint at this year’s winning costumes. Allow me to introduce…

Joker, dog, costume, dark knight, batman, funny

Batdog!

With his chiseled chin and steely gaze, Eko is the ideal Bruce Wayne.

Penny is certainly no Robin. So what’s a mischievous, chaos loving lunatic of a pup to dress as. The Joker, of course.

Some dogs just want to watch the world burn

“Let’s put a smile on that face!”

I still can’t stop laughing at these photos. The makeup was surprisingly easy. I just applied some washable, pet-safe dye by hand. It took less than two minutes.

The laughs continued when I took the pups to the beach.

Penny had the whole beach in stitches with her warpaint

As always, the pups were happy to play their parts

While I’ll certainly have fun dressing the pups up for future Halloweens, I don’t think I will ever dream up a more fitting pair of costumes.

This must be how Michelangelo felt after painting the Sistine Chapel.

Comments for The Perfect Halloween Costume

  1. Haha they look perfect! What a treat for the beach-goers! 😀

    Michelangelo step back! Bravo to Will and the RRs. Actually Dash and Lilly will be the Scarecrow and Dorothy — a perfect pair. Best friends and one wishing he had a brain and the other one always wanting only to be home. Happy Halloween!!

  3. you are lucky to have dogs that actually let you DO that!!! Love these!

  4. I think James Bond and Penny in the croc costume would be a fine remake of Live And Let Die…there were a lot of crocos involved :o)

    So fun. Looking great.

  6. Jo Rhodes says:

    These are hilarious. You’ll never have to worry about embarrassing them on prom night.
    Penny is that wig…

    The joker costume is perfect.

  9. Abbie says:

    Lol, this IS so perfect! And seeing Penny with paint on her face at the dog beach is just hilarious.

  10. HAHAHAHA! Those are perfect costumes!!!!! LOVE it!!!!!

  11. Kismet says:

    Since you’re in a creative mood, isn’t it about time that Emily and Penny also appeared in the signature picture that appears at the beginning of every post?

  12. Well done Will – if anyone is passing out prizes, your pups get my vote!

  13. Emmadog says:

    Some great costumes, but we love painted Penny! That is awesome!

  14. Stef says:

    This is so awesome and I LOL’d in my haircut chair! You guys have been so funny and loved today’s post! The pups look awesome!

  15. The makeup reminded me of zombies. How about zombie dogs?

  16. Genevieve says:

    Penny may have to be The Joker EVERY Halloween. It’s the most perfect choice, bar none. And of course, Eko is the hero. No doubt.

  17. You missed your calling in costume and make up design, Will. Eko and Penny are your stars. How many buckets of treats did you go through when doing Penny’s make up? I hope Emily wasn’t scared when she got home from a long day at the hospital.

    I can go as the black streaker-zoom zoom

  19. Just love the joker, you did a great job with that face paint!!
