Introduction: Wonder Woman Dog Costume

Picture of Wonder Woman Dog Costume

"At last, in a world torn apart by the hatreds and wars of men, appears a woman to whom the problems and fears of men are mere child’s play . . . she is known only as WONDER WOMAN." These quoted words are read in the All Stars Comic #8 issue in December 1941 comic as her introduction. As one would expect from a character that is more than 70 years old, the history and continuing story of Wonder Woman are truly fascinating.

I love classics and we have a new puppy whom loves to be dressed up and be pampered. For Halloween this year, I decided to make a Doggy Wonder Woman Costume and show how I made it. I've even attached a printable pattern that I drafted to help you create this costume.

My puppy is on the extra small side. The pattern I made will fit dogs with a 6 1/2"-8" neck, 10 1/2"-12" Girth, and a length of 8 1/8" +.
