Step 1: The Spider
Painting the legs was a bit messier than I expected, but fairly easy once I got to the third leg. The most difficult part of the costume was that it is very wide, so when walking Neo I had to make sure that we didn’t get too close to cars, walls, people, or doorways. Also, because of Neo’s super soft silky coat, the spider ball would slide to one side or the other a bit too much. I placed a rug gripper under the doggie pack to stop it from slipping. This was definitely not a costume for a dog who hates to wear them. Neo is really a good sport about it all. He seems to like the “oooos” and “ahhhs” as much as I do, but only for Halloween and Christmas.
