One of my favorite things to do is brainstorm adorable couples costumes ideas for dog mom and dog duos. I’ve already posted about three spectacular costumes with Lucy (you can see them here, here and here). But, now that we have Burt in the family I had the interesting challenge to come up with a group costume for the three of us. It’s like a family costume for me and the dogs!
Halloween Family Costume With Dogs: The Three Musketeers
What I ended up creating for the three of us is The Three Musketeers! And I don’t think it could have turned out any better. Not only is this a super fun costume, but I love how the message of The Three Musketeers aligns with our family values – all for one and one for all! Me and my dogs are a package deal and we’re always looking out for each other. That’s why this costume works so well!
Another interesting idea I want to put out there for you is that you don’t have to buy costumes made for dogs in order for them to fit. Keep reading to see what I mean!
My Shopping Secret for Dog Halloween Costumes
Just because I’m looking for dog Halloween costumes doesn’t mean that I have to buy just from the dog department! Especially when I want to create a matching look for all three of us, it makes more sense to get all the costumes from the same place.
For our Three Musketeers looks, I got all the costumes from the kids department at Party City! The dogs are both wearing Size Medium and I’m wearing a Large! It worked perfectly with these costumes because they’re basically ponchos that velcro on the sides. It made the sizing really flexible!
When you’re buying packaged kids Halloween costumes they often come with extra accessories. These came with the hats (and felt feathers), and boot covers. None of us used the boot covers though. For my costume, I used my own flat over the knee boots and my own black hat since it was a lot nicer than the felt ones. And the finishing touch was the mustache and goatee! It was so fun to wear and feel like I was completely in disguise!
DIY Dog Tip: To keep the hats on the dogs, I poked holes in the sides and ran an elastic ribbon through to make a chin strap.
