Halloween is still several weeks away but I don’t think it’s too early to start thinking about costumes…for your pet! If I were a craftier person I’d make one from scratch but I’m all thumbs when it comes to sewing. Luckily, I found this adorable hot dog costume at TJ Maxx for $9.99.
Here’s a look at the underside of the costume. As you can see it has velcro closures which makes it very easy to put on and remove. One set of velcro secures below the neck/upper chest, and the second set of velcro secures across the abdominal area.
The material is 100% polyester with polyester stuffing which makes it very lightweight. It literally feels like a fluffy pillow.
To give you a sense of the sizing, Oscar’s 15 lbs, 14 inches from the shoulder to the base of the tail, 18 inches around the thickest part of his chest, and approximately 1 foot high from toe to the top of his head.
The length of the Size L hot dog costume fits Oscar perfectly with plenty of room to spare in the velcro straps. I have him strapped in at the tightest setting. A more rotund dog could definitely wear this size.
So if you’re interested, definitely check out your TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Ross stores.
