I wanted to create a costume that my puppy could be included in, this is what I came up with.
Step 1: Decide on a character.
This is probably an obvious thing to do, but I sometimes have so many ideas floating around in my head that it is tough to decide on just one. Do yourself a favor and decide at least one month before you will be attending any costume parties - it is no fun looking for a black wig the day before an event only to realize there is nothing suitable in stock at any local store.
I love the idea of going as a themed duo or group, so I ended up with Snow White because my little guy, Valentino, makes a perfect Happy the dwarf.
