JD 22 Oct 2003 Hi there. Just wondering if anyone else is dressing up as a Disney character for Halloween. Is your costume homemade or purchased? I'm attending a Disney collector club Halloween party this weekend as the dog from the Pirates of the Caribbean jail scene. I bought a cheap sweatsuit and dyed it brown. Then I cut out several spots from dark brown felt with a sticky backing and applied them to the shirt and pants. I also cut out four paws from light brown felt and sewed them onto the cuffs. At Target I bought a dog mask with floppy ears. It's kid-sized, but fits this 41-year old head just fine. To make this a PotC dog, rather than a run-of-the-mill mutt, I found a large metal ring and several old-fashioned keys to hold in my mouth. I haven't decided yet whether to include a tail, but may decide to sew a strip of felt or fake fur onto the...uh... posterior region. So, share with us what you've come up with. Next year, I want to be the 'dunked mayor' from PotC, but am not sure how to construct it.
