The first stop is to make your four legged friend into a great delivery dog team. This means that you will turn your doggy into a pair (crafting him into a team helping out a box of delivery with any company of your choice). Consequently, this concept requires a lot of careful planning and a skilful sewer is needed who can perfectly translate and represent what you have in mind. Your pup can look like two employees from UPS or DHL transporting a package to your doorstep or just two plain guys carrying a box that needs to be transferred. Whatever your choice is, this concept is one of its kind. Check out this blog for a step by step instruction on how to dress your pup into a cool delivery dog team visit Petmeds.

If you think you are a real fan of the Star Wars series, then you are in the best position to conceptualize that Star Wars costume most especially intended for your pup. Just be sure that you have with you the original videos and/or photos of the different characters for easy reference to make it like the real thing. In this way, you will be more inspired in crafting your own Star Wars dog attire. As tips for first timers, check out the characters’ most striking asset and highlight this to start of your DIY design. However, if you specifically want to dress your pup as Princess Leia, try to inspect her hair bun. If you are a keen observer, this is the thing that makes her unique and this is how she symbolizes her character in the movie. For more suggestions on this concept, visit Makezine.
