DIY Big Red Dog Halloween Costume Idea Using Footed Pajamas

How to Make an Adult Big Red Dog Costume
This is a SEWING OPTIONAL costume! We used a sewing machine, but staples will work fine (see the Homemade Lobster Costume for similar construction).

How to make a Big Red Dog Costume out of a pair of red footie pjs:

  • Start with one pair of Adult Footed Pajamas
  • Make a pair of Red Ears & Dog Paws from Red Felt (Felt is available in a 6 foot wide version for about $5 a yard from fabric stores) Cut the shapes below.

  • Sew or Staple them like you see below in "C".

  • Turn them inside out.
  • Cut a small tail from the scraps and safety pin it to your rump.
  • Give Yourself a Big Red Dog Complexion from Red Face Paint or use "Blush" Make-Up.
  • Much easier to wash off than red face paint!
