Merpup - A Dollar Store Costume Recon for the Dog!

I picked up this little kids’ mermaid tail costume at the dollar store as a starting point for Delia’s Halloween costume this year. I modified it by enlarging the waist elastic and adding an elastic lower on the tail to secure it to her own tail.

Of course she needed an clamshell bra! And it needed extra, uh, coverage (not entirely anatomically correct, obvs) so I made 4! It fits over the front strap of her walking harness and attaches with hook and loop.

Delia was pretty game for the costume, but she’s never a fan of modeling for photos. I did my best.

I love it. I wanna turn 120 pound puppy Odin into a bumble bee. My husband says it will ruin his street cred at the dog park.

The look on her face in the top image is her “When this pandemic is over, I am so getting my own place” look!

So cute and I cracked up at the extra shell bra! You pup is like my kitties, they will be so stinkin’ cute until you pull out the camera and then they will either turn their heads or walk straight for me.
