Happy Halloween from Shelby the Teen Wolf

We were in quite a hurry this year to finish the costume, and Steven managed to take this photo despite an earthquake. (No worries, everyone's OK.) We've been so preoccupied that we haven't even carved the pumpkins yet. But I couldn't let Shelby's fans down, and not have a Halloween costume this year, so Steven and I proudly present Shelby the Teen Wolf!

Shelby received many Cheerios for her efforts, and she's a really patient dog when it comes to fitting and posing. I hope Michael J. Fox would approve. I realized after making the costume, that the mask could easily double as a Dr. Cornelious Planet of the Apes costume. Others have mentioned that Shelby could also be an Ewok. I'll have to keep this pattern in mind for upcoming years.

Teen Wolf, back

Werewolf

Silly Shelby, you look like a little monkey sitting there. What are you looking at?
Werewolf, or monkey?

No seriously, what are you looking at?

Congratulations to Winnie and Steven on a great costume! Sorry that Northern San Jose and the Bay Area got all shook up last night and glad that Ms. Shelby remained cool throughout her ordeal! Yes, she could have been a monkey, ewok, or ? Good Job and
High Fives all around! Thanks for not making us a moment longer! We Love You!!!!

LOVE it!! She really does look like a little howler monkey in one picture. How did you attach the hair around her face??

Shelby! I didn't recognize you at first! You're so cute! I'm happy my little doggie Mooshie can't see your costume, she would be a jealous pup! Happy Halloween to you and your family!

You make the best costumes! Shelby is so cute and looks quite cooperative too. I can't even get a handkerchief on Roy without him sulking, so we don't do costumes anymore. Happy Halloween!

She looks really perturbed by the costume to me!!!

Maybe Shelby is thinking that her facial hair
is really itchy--"Mom, how long do I have to wear
this costume?"

Posted by: Jade | Oct 31, 2007 5:35:10 PM

Oh my gosh! That is so impossibly cute. It even rivals the classic Yoda costume from a couple years back. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with next year.

You ROCK!! I love it.

Thanks everyone!

As for the weremask, that's just a modified version of Shelby's Poochador costume from last year. I just made it from craft fur.

Posted by: Winnie | Oct 31, 2007 7:58:31 PM

Ohmygod, seriously. Every year, I watch the Halloween costumes, and every year, I say, "Wow, Winnie will never EVER be able to beat that" Case in point, La Mucha Poochador. I STILL tell people about that.

And then. I log on. And there I see TEEN WOLF. And I yelled for my husband to come and see (and he immediately knew who she was supposed to be) and I shook my head in sheer amazement.

Oh, Shelby and Winnie. Two gifted, gifted ladies. Congrats on the most amazing Halloween costume in Human (Or, Pug) History.

You have the most CREATIVE costumes!!... I look forward to what you're gonna do each year... LOVE the Teen Wolf!!

Posted by: Lauren | Oct 31, 2007 9:21:52 PM

Kudos to Winnie and Steven! Your Teen Wolf is adorable-right down to the funny fur piece around her head. She doesn't look too happy for all the cherrios it must have taken... Well Done!

BEAUTIFUL!

I hope you got lots and lots of candy, or, you know, snacky stuff.

They did take you trick or treating didn't they?

'Owned by pugs' went trick or treating, they got lots of snackies.
