halloween! - The Dainty Squid

halloween!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Remember a little while back when I mentioned that I had to puppysit Crum while my parents attended a wedding? Well I figured this was the perfect time to snap some shots of my non-human brothers dressed up for Halloween (and to surprise my mom with since I know she'll get a kick out of seeing her babies dressed up! Hi Mom!) A few days before we went over the pet store had their Halloween costumes buy one get one free so we were able to snag a kitty sized costume and an XL dog one (which was still a pinch too small, Crum is only 7 months old!) for the price of one. Anyway, enough talk, look at my gnomes!
 Being a big lawn gnome is ruff.

I didn't have the opportunity to get any pictures of my kitties all dressed up due to the incredibly dreary weather lately (It's SO dark in my house when it rains!) But if you don't have your pets dressed up silly for Halloween fix satisfied you can find all the previous years photos here - 2010 & 2011. That picture of Doc as a cowboy in 2010's pictures kills me. It's so funny!

Halloween falling in the middle of the week somehow makes it seem less like a holiday but I'm determined to make it special. Skeleton leggings, horror movies and pumpkin flavored treats are in order. If it would stop raining carving pumpkins would be perfect for this evening but I suppose it will have to wait for a few more days...

What are you plans for Halloween? Whatever they are, hope you all have a spooky, fun and safe day!
xoxo

  2. I absolutely love lawn gnomes, so these pictures are really doing it for me!! I especially love how Crum looks. His face is so long and skinny, and kind of old mannish for a puppy!! Too cute.
    All this rain is awful! I haven't been able to photograph my costume for Miss Indie's linkup costume party! Maybe after work today I'll be able to. Otherwise I'm taking it easy tonight.

  20. So adorable! Love great danes so much! And the kitty seems to actually enjoy the costume... How is that possible? My cat would be doing a serious wiggle dance to try to get out of that thing.

  21. OMG! I love the second cat photo! It's hilarious! He/she looks like a drunken cat gnome! I love it! Best pet costumes ever! I'm going to dress up with whatever I can find in my basement and get Indian food with some of my girlfriends! I already went to two parties this past weekend and dressed a cat and Peppermint Patty (my boyfriend went as Charlie Brown)!
