We interrupt Brutus' Earlventure posts for some obligatory Halloween fun! It's come down to the wire, but the Frenchies are still trying to make up their minds on what to be for Trick-or-Treat this year. Maybe you all can help...
Ever notice that there are qualities about someone that just shout for a particular costume? That's where this idea came from - Brute just has the face for it! I swore I'd never use a dog costume that had arms, but to say this first one is a popular choice is an understatement (the photo's gone viral on Facebook). Not sure how Brutus feels about being a villian, though...
|I sense the force is strong with you...|
|Darth Brutus contemplates the allure of the dark side.|
I mean... The facial resemblance is uncanny, no?
Then we were going through our Halloween supplies, and ran across some old things of Duncan's. They met with mixed reviews form Brute.
|Oh, no. No. You've got to me kidding me!|
|This costume is making me crabby.|
Then I pulled out something a little more appropriate. I think this one gets Brutus' vote. He CAN fly after all, we just need an action shot of Super Brutus!
|MUCH more distinguished. I'm definitely superhero material!!|
|Do I hear a damsel in distress?? Super Brutus up, up & awaaaaaaaaay!|
Such a well-attired dog as Brutus has to have something more comfortable to change into for the "after-party", so here is this years' choice:
|I gotta be me, after all!|
OK, now for Carmen. She's a little more of a challenge - partly because we had no "girly" costumes, and partly because she tried to eat everything I put on her!!
|Nope. Off the mark with the witch hat. What else ya got, mom?|
I was trying to keep it simple for Carmen, so thought maybe this cute spider costume would do the trick. It was supposed to be a hat, but she kept grabbing the legs that dangled around her head and thought the ankle cuffs were fun to chase. After a few minutes of failed attempts, we bailed on the spider idea too.
|It got me mom... Don't know if I'm gonna make it...|
|Oh, come on. I need something more... ME!|
Finally I found something fit for my little Drama Queen. Simple, elegant. Very Carmen.
|Now, where are my minions??|
|It's good to be the Queen.|
|If you think I'm taking this crown off, you are most mistaken. It needs to become part of my daily attire!|
And then of course my little diva needed to have something in case she got any invitations to a Halloween Ball. She was completely comfortable in this snappy little number, actually wore it for over an hour and never even tried to roll it off!
|Eat your hearts out!|
Mason didn't feel like playing dress-up this year, plus Paul gets irked when I put clothes on his dog. Thought about just draping a sheet with eye-holes over Mason and making him a labraghost (he'd just sit there), but thought I'd let the ol' boy keep at least a little of his dignity. Instead, here's a recycled image from last years' Halloween post so that Mason doesn't feel left out here.
|Your feeble attempts at humor fail to amuse me.|
So from all of us - Darth Brutus, the Drama Queen, batty Mason, myself & Paul (who's birthday just happens to be today...) - hope you all have a super-Happy Halloween!
Now get out there and score some treats!!!
|Psst.... Brutus! Trick or Treat!!|
