DIY: LILO AND STITCH DISNEY COSTUMES

This year I didn't have anyone to dress up with and really wanted to incorporate my dog into my costume so I figured I'd mix some of my favorite things together- Disney and the beach. Thus Lilo and Stitch was the obvious choice. Now believe it or not I made this decision the beginning of September when my sweet maltipoo Roxy was over due for a haircut. Instead I decided to keep growing her hair out so she would look more like an alien space mut than a dog.

Frequent visits to Savers ended up resulting in the perfect red mu mu which I then cut felt leaves out and sewed them on.

I used way too much bronzer and tanning lotion to give myself a Hawaiian tan and some brown contacts to blend it all together.

Then it was time for Roxy's transformation. Luckily she was a pretty good sport about it all and although she was embarrassed at first for being blue, she ended up LOVING the attention. Don't worry I used animal safe hair dye called Manic Panic found at Sally's Beauty Supply store and followed the instructions!

I'd love to see your rendition of Lilo and Stitch!!! Happy Halloween!!
