Ahoy, me hearties! September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! To celebrate, I created a DIY no sew pirate costume for Chuy. This doubles as a Halloween costume if you need something in a pinch! If dressing up isn’t your dog’s thing, be sure to check out our DIY Pirate Sock Toy.
- Pirate Pendant
- Rubber Band
There aren’t precise instructions for this costume as it depends on the size of your dog. I’ll share with you what I did but just have fun and put your own creative touch on it! I took a red and white striped infinity scarf and cut a piece large enough to fit around Chuy’s body. Then, I cut out some leg holes. To keep your dog from tripping on the fabric, take all of the excess material and tie it under your dog’s belly using a rubber band or elastic hair tie.
To complete the look, I added a skull and crossbones bandanna that I picked up at Wal-Mart for a dollar. To give it some extra flair, I added a pirate pendant that I wore a few years ago when I dressed up as a Wench.
PS – Make sure that the costume fits your dog properly and doesn’t cause them to trip and fall.
My old Seadog Chuy is ready to batten down the hatches in his DIY Pirate costume!
