merMAN - The Dainty Squid


Thursday, October 31, 2013

Were you hoping for a post with my animals all dressed up for Halloween? Even if you weren't, you gotta admit this is cute. Doc makes a pretty cute, if I do say so myself.
You're probably wondering why two of the TDS crew are left out of these pictures. Leaf, my big orange kitty, was too large for the costume. The tail didn't even come close to fitting. Klaus, of course, was too big to be a merman. I had a really cute costume idea for the two of us but didn't have time to photograph it. Perhaps I'll just shoot it sometime soon. We don't need Halloween as an excuse to dress up, right?

Anyway, I'll keep it short today! Hope you have a happy Halloween. Don't eat too much candy. I'm spending my Halloween exploring Philadelphia. Then I'll be dancing my butt off dressed as Alex DeLarge tonight when I see Man Man for the third time this month. It's gonna be a great day.

Pssst. Be sure to check out old Halloween posts of the animals dressed up here -  2010, 2011 & 2012.

  11. haha too cute, my cat would kill me if I dressed him up but my dog doesn't care. Her first halloween she was a devil dog and has been something ever since. I want to have a lion costume one of these times since she's so fluffy.

  15. I was directed here by blogger Winter Moon after she saw a pic of my kitty, Phoebe, in the Lydia Deetz/Beetlejuice outfit I made her for Halloween 2012. I'm so glad I'm not the only one dressing up cats! ;D Your kitties are ADORABLE!
