My son is too young to know the difference between a dog and a wolf, much less a wolf and a direwolf, so I knew he'd be thrilled with the costume no matter what. Although I didn't realize just how excited he'd get.
I threw the pants together really quick with some furry white material I bought years ago but never really found a use for (I'm not even sure if it's washable). I pulled them on him to see how they fit and he started giggling as he petted his legs. It didn't even occur to me until later that a wolf needs a tail, so that got added later when I made the hoodie. (Yes, it's a two piece costume.) When it was all done, we tried it on with a little black eyeliner on his nose.
I'm pretty sure he thought he was the cutest white wolf pup that ever there was...
Of course, I'd have to agree!
Here's a view from the side. He even chases his tail. It's too funny!
I know it's a little late for making costumes this year, but if anyone's interested, I can put together a sewing tutorial. (Update: Tutorial is done! Find it here.)
My husband ran in the Monster Dash Half Marathon on Saturday, and I put Abe in his costume when we went to the race. After hearing a number of girls cooing over Abe in his costume, one guy commented "That's the costume I want for Halloween, because all the girls love it!" It is hard to resist the little black puppy nose...
