Loved Hit Girl in the Kick Ass movie and thought that it would make a fun dog costume. This costume isn't hard to make BUT it takes time to make. I spent about 2 1/2 hours on this one.

A little safety note! When your dog is wearing a costume, it MUST be supervised. Accidents can happen!

Step 1: Tools & Supplies

You will need; A purple tartan kids skirt, a purple wig, pink webbing, a meter of stretchy black sports fabric, scissors, needle & thread, pins, a china marker, a marking pen, a length of elastic, velcro, black vet wrap, a measuring tape and a sewing machine.

The total cost for the materials was $15. I got the skirt at a second hand shop and bought the fabric out of the remainders bin. The black fabric for the mask and cape should be stretchy sports fabric. You don’t have to do any hemming and the fabric has a little “give” to it for doggie comfort. You can buy vet wrap at any horse tack shop and some pet stores.

Step 2: MASK - The Muzzle Dart

Place the fabric over your dog’s face and pinch a small amount of fabric to for it to the muzzle. With a china marker, make a triangular mark on the gathering. Then pin the dart together, with the sharp point AWAY from your dog’s face.

Step 3: MASK - Eye Holes

Holding the fabric to your dog’s face, place a finger in the general eye area. Lift the fabric off of your dog, transfer to the table and mark eye holes. Cut generous sized holes.

Step 4: MASK - Ear Holes

I would rather see the costume from the comics, because to me they were all so much better. However, you did a fantastic job.
