Halloween is a time for dressing up in costume! And this month, Michaels gave us the challenge to create a DIY costume for a child, adult or . . . a pet. I have been wanting to make my little Enzo (named after Enzo Ferrari) a vintage race car costume. So I took on the pet challenge! This race car dog costume is perfect for Enzo, don’t you think?

What fun I had walking around the store, imagining how parts and pieces could make up this race car dog costume. I found foam, plastic needlepoint discs, glass domes, silver elastic, and wood rings for his little goggles, or “doggles” as we like to call them. I also found teal felt for his hat, stick-on numbers, and more. My shopping cart was packed with possibilities! In true Lia form I just jumped in and made it up as I went. . . coaxing Enzo to stand for fittings. Oh what fun! Enzo did so well for his photo shoot yesterday. A true Italian model. (Enzo is an Italian Doxi and was born in Milan according to the doxi rescue team.)

If you would like to make a sporty race car dog costume for the furry friend in your life, you can shop these products below. Then follow the tutorial  below for the little driving hat and doggles. The car costume is left to your own imagination and the size of your pet.
