The Lion and The Tin Man Costume

27 October 2019

Hi! I'm back with another doggy and me costume that I've actually been wanting to do for YEARS.  Growing up, I had a yellow lab that I always wanted to put in a lion costume and sadly never did, so Nacho got the short end of that costume wish haha. To be fair, Nacho's personality definitely matches The Lion from The Wizard of Oz! My big guy is a rescue and super scared of a lot of things, if not all the things lol. I'd say it's super cute but also really sad that he's so anxious! Anyway, this costume was SO easy to put together and took very little effort.  All I did was add a red felt heart to a dress I already had and made a "funnel" out of silver card stock paper. I'll link Nacho's lion costume and a few silver dress options you can get on time before Halloween! Okay, here's how to make this costume:

Eggs and Bacon Costume

This is Halloween, this is Halloween! I can’t believe my Halloween costume series is here and per yesterday’s post I can’t believe I’m writing this lol. This year, I thought it would be fun to incorporate a series with my son, Nacho, because it’ll be the first year we celebrate one of my favorite holidays together! Growing up, I had a dog that my mom dressed up every year and going into this year, I knew I would have to do the same for my little boy. Finding ‘dog and me’ costumes is kind of hard though because the selection out there can kind of be limited so in true Melissa fashion, this year I’m thinking up fun and super inexpensive ways to dress your furry friend up. This week, we’re each others’ favorite breakfast combination: bacon and eggs. Alright, let’s learn how to make these costumes, that mind you cost all but $5 to make lol. 

Hello, old friend.

Is this thing still on? Hi! My goodness it’s been months and a lot has happened. As you guys know, I have a career that I’m so devoted to and the last time we chatted on here was the day things changed. Long story short, my team moved on in their careers and I was left straddling multiple roles. Busy is an understatement but boy did I learn A LOT in those short few months.
