I've shown these before, but I thought maybe some of the newer members would like to see them.

Pat - I remember seeing those last year and just being in awe.:chili: You've inspired me. Tonight or tomorrow, I make the oreo costume. I have all the supplies. I wanted to dress as a glass of milk, to go with the Oreo but couldn't find a costume (other than the Missing Persons milk costume) so I might have to make mine too.:smilie_tischkante:

Wow Pat those are all awesome! Do you have any tips for me to make a wagon into a carriage? I have a Prince Charming and Princess costume for the T's and want to make our wagon into their carriage. Or maybe I should do it like a castle? We want to take them to the costume contest at Petsmart and another local pet shop on the 23rd.

Thanks :D

humm....a carriage. Gee, I think my large AT3 Dog stroller would me cool to decorate as a carriage!! Do you have a stroller?

If you have a wooden wagon, can you get someone to built the structure first? Then you can cover the entire thing with material (gotta love the staple gun!)

A glass of milk....let's see....
How about two small hula hoops...attach material to one of them to be straps over your shoulders. Then take a white sheet and attach each end all the way around hula hoops so one is around your shoulders and one is around your knees or thighs or however big a glass of milk you want. I think it can be done.....

I have a wooden wagon and one of those cheap strollers from Petsmart. My wagon is one I bought while we lived in Germany (a potato wagon?) and all the sides can be removed. So I need to get with hubby to see what he can do with it. Hhhmmm

What do y'all think? Would a castle be better or a carriage?

:smrofl::smrofl: Pat I was thinking a sheet with a glass drawn on it. OMG - you're so creative!!! Hula hoops...hmmm. I'll see! the sheet thing made me think of a great costume I once saw. A sheet with things written all over it, like call (phone #) for a good time, and it was a Ladies Room wall.:HistericalSmiley: Was a panic. She had a marker attached so you could write on it.
What are you both wearing with the Tiny Dancers motif?

Hey, gf, I remember all of these. Can never make my mind up which one I like best. Every time I look at the pictures, it seems to be a different float that I favor.

Soooooooooooooooooooooo much work, but sooooooooooooooooooooo much fun!!! :)

Elaine and I are just wearing black jeans and our black tops (mine has a maltese in rhinestones on it and hers has a chihuahua in rhinestones on it. We also have black visors for our heads. Mine says "AGENT" on it and hers says "MANAGER". That's about it for us :blush:

Sorry Pat, not trying to hyjack your thread :wub:
No....hyjack away! It's getting pretty late to be starting a big project now, but you've got to get started!!!! Go with which ever theme is the easiest to build and cover!

Thanks, everyone! I don't know why I like doing these wagons each year, but I get a kick out of it! :chili:
