Laura, thank you for these great dog Halloween costume ideas! We are going to guess how these were put together:
The first part of the Ring Girl dog costume on Izzie looks fairly straightforward to make, since all you did is put a dress (or top and skirt) on your Shih Tzu. Then you took the tennis ball halves covered with nylon, and glued the bikini fabric over them. For the next step, which is putting the bikini ensemble into the top, it looks like you probably put the dress on your dog, then pinned the tennis ball contraption in place. After that, we imagine you took the dress off, and then glued the pinned parts to the dress and removed the pins. If we were to re-create this homemade dog costume, we would use safety pins rather than straight pins to avoid accidentally poking the dog. We're not sure where baby headband comes in-perhaps it holds the flower or the Round 1 sign?
For Bailey's Boxer Costume, the PJ top looks like you did not alter it, although it would be possible to do so if it was too big by cutting a slit along each side and sewing or gluing the parts closer together. We think you first put the top on the dog, and then used chalk or a pencil to outline the writing to make sure that it was centered properly. Following that you took it off and added Bailey's name with glitter glue.
