Happy Halloween...now OFF WITH HER HEAD!


Well it took a fair amount of lobbying to convince Vin NOT to be a race car driver again this year. Instead, despite never having seen the movie, he really like the idea of being the Mad Hatter. So here they are, Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts.




This is probably one of the more ambitous dog costumes I've attempted. I mean, the dress even has a tutu, to puff it out, and the crown? Well, let's just say it's amazing what you can do with a gold foil cake doily.

Good girl Shelby. You're pulling off that regal look much better than I thought you might. Happy Halloween everyone!

I'm impressed that Shelby kept the crown on her head! Both pug and boy are adorable in their costumes!

How DID you keep the crown on? We can't keep anything on our pugs' heads. Ever.

Love the costumes, btw...

There's a little elastic strap to hold it on her head, but a little head shake would've taken it right off. I guess after putting stuff on her head every year for 7 years she's finally gotten used to it?

This is the post I look forward to most every year, and you never disappoint. Winnie, you just get better and better. Congratulations on another fantastic costume. Pug and Boy are so lucky to have you for their mom.

Amazing as always! So jealous that Shelby is so good at wearing things on her head. Loki will not tolerate anything on his head.
