Max, The Karate Dog: Howl-I-Ween Costume

This year, I decided I would roll up my sleeves and make a cute little Howl-I-Ween costume for Max. I had no idea what Max would be, so I went to the local thrift shop to browse for ideas. I came across a white pair of scrubs and a black fabric belt. Three dollars later, I was on my way home to start my craft project.

Karate Dog!

I measured down Max's back, then I cut the bottom of the pants. Then I cut the pant leg open, along the seam. I measured from arm to arm, over Max's back. I then measured the cloth and make little slits for Max's arms.


Now I have a little white jacket for Max, which is fully customizable. I decided to make him into a little Karate Dog. So I printed a Chinese War sign (which is used on many Karate gees) from the web. I traced the sign on the back center of the coat with a black fine point sharpie and filled it in with a thick sharpie.


Then I measured around Max's belly and cut the black belt. I tied the black belt around his belly and slid the knot to the front.

Wah-La... Karate Dog!


Max says, "Hiiii-ya!"

Thanks Ashley for dropping by my blog and well wishes.

The word you painted at the back of the gee does not really MEAN warfare.

Its normally used because as a single word, it means Martial Arts. Pair it up with other words it can mean Warfare, Warrior, Martial Arts Practitioner etc.

Drop by again soon, and if you do drop by Singapore, come look us up.
