Romeo ready for halloween!

I was looking for am orange t-shirt to fit Romeo- Couldn't find one so had to get creative- I bought a Youth Small White t- shirt at the thrift store and a box of Rit Sunshine Orange dye at Michael's and dyed the white T-Shirt orange following the directions on the inside of the box.

Then I made a stencil out of light cardboard with a jack o' lantern face, and used some spray paint I happened to have here from an earlier project on the shirt for an instant halloween costume/shirt for the dog, just add a green bandana or ribbon. I liked Romeo's shirt so much I made myself one!

Crappy cell phone pic- Romeo is ready to defend his home against spooks and goblins in his halloween costume!

Terrific shirt! I'll think he'll be attracting more hugs than scaring off bogeymen :)

Great idea. I am sure that was much cheaper than buying him a doggy costume.

That's pawsome!

Blitzkrieg is going to be a Security guy. My husband bought him a bandana that has Security printed on it. Blitzkrieg's not into wearing clothes, or I'd make him a Nick Fury coat.
