Belated Costume Post

I missed the deadline, but this was Ein's Halloween costume this year. He is K-9, the robot dog from Doctor Who.



I had way more fun making this costume than Ein did wearing it. This is one of the few photos where he was smiling. :)

I hope there is Secret Santa this year! Last year was the first time I participated and it was a lot of fun.

Yeah, Ein got honorable mention over there! I was really surprised because there were some great choices.

Any chance on you being willing to take a photo of the inside? my 2 year old is going to be the 4th doctor for Purim this year, and well, I'd love to have him pose with the dog as K9, it would be so epically hilarious.

Sure! Here is it from the inside:



I also used pics from these sites as a guide:

Mostly it's cardboard and duct tape. I used a mini tea strainer for the ears and a clear plastic gift bag for the visor. And the tail is part of an antennae.

That is just wonderful. My 22 year old son bought a "sock monkey" costume for my corgi but I am terrible at uploading pictures. Anyway, he loves, loves, loves Dr. Who and will think this is great. Very inventive of you.

Love it!! My mom bought my Pom a vest harness with a suit and tie sewn on the front, so he wore that and was the Doctor and I wore my Tardis shirt

I think this K9 costume is absolutely fantastic! And I love the fact that it is just made out of cardboard and duct-tape.
Did Ein save the world wearing it? 'affirmative master' hehe
