Trying On Halloween Costumes

Posted by Francesca

Just as Martha does, we simply adore Halloween: Every year, Sharkey and I work with Martha's crafty Crafts Department crafters to devise new and ever more terrifying costumes. This year, we've got a whole new source of possibilities: Martha's line of pet Halloween costumes for PetSmart! We tried on the whole collection, and when we each choose our favorite, we'll enter the PetSmart Halloween contest on Facebook. As employees of MSLO, we can't win the grand prize of a cameo in a PetSmart commercial (besides, we starred in one), but you can! Why not give it a try!

Francesca, what do you think of my spiderweb outfit?

Frankly, I think it looks better on me.

See how the coloring works with me, rather than against me?

Then again, maybe I'll wear this devil's outfit. I do feel like a bit of a devil now and then, and the red is striking against my lustrous black fur! Too bad the wings don't actually make you fly. Otherwise, watch out, squirrels!

Well, you're the fashion maven. Since I'm a fawn-colored Frenchie, maybe this ghost costume suit me better?

The shroud makes me look particularly eerie... I'm actually a little scared of myself!

How about a skeleton? It's almost like getting an x-ray.

Oh, well. Who needs mirrors? I know I'm gorgeous.

  • Morning Girls - just love the costumes, you both look great as usual.

    I hope the PetSmart near us has the devil costume I think I would make a great devil ;) Mom will have to take my picture and submit it for the contest.

    I'm a bit upset this morning my Phillies did not clinch the division title this weekend, those darn Mets had to spoil it for us, I hate the Mets even more than the Yankees. I know Martha is a Yankee fan, blah blah blah..... Do you girls have Yankee shirts? I have a Phillies shirt that I wear when I watch the game with mom - I look too cool.

    So we made cookies Friday night for T-Bone's birthday on Saturday they were so yummy. He had a nice birthday. We spent the day helping mom decorate the front porch for Halloween, it looks really good. We found a new farm market and they had some really neat gourds and pumpkins.

    I have a busy day, mom gave dad a "honey-do-list" since it's suppose to rain all day. I'll have to crack the whip and make sure he gets the list done so mom is happy when she comes home - I'm gonna have my hands full he doesn't move too fast :(

  • Haha! I love the Halloween costumes! Sharkey, you make a great vampire! Woohoo! Bye!

  • OK...you pups are way too cute to be scary! ;)

  • Hello Ladies,
    Don't you both look fantastic in your Halloween costumes. I have a feeling since Sunday is my birthday that there are great things in the costume line in my future. My favorites are the spider and skeleton. My weekend was a busy one. Dad put in the skylight in our new kitchen. Just the roof part. Now tonight he starts the inside. Lots of noise. Have a great Monday.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    What a sad weekend I had. First off, mommy and daddy went someplace Saturday morning; no walking for me. On Sunday morning it was raining; no walk for me again. Today, more rain again. My feet will forget how to walk if this keeps up. Maybe later on today I’ll get to take a walk. I just love Halloween too. This year I think I will dress as a werewolf. Already have the costume.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Love, Love, Love your costumes, they're Spooktacular! I am going to stop by and pick up the spiderweb dress for an upcoming Howl-o-ween Parade for homeless doggies. I think it will help to scare up a lot of donations :)

    Best Witches!

  • Hey girls , Rocky here, You look so great in the costumes. I'm gonna tell my Nicole to go get the skeleton one for my grandson Loki ,he's a little devil everyday so the devil wouldn't fool anyone!

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., OMG! you girls look sooo terrific in those great PetSmart Halloween costumes! I'm not a costume guy myself, but these look so great on you two that maybe I'll give it a try! Francesca, you do look great in the spiderweb costume! Sharkey, you look great in a skeleton costume and a vampire one! Did G.K. try on any of those costumes?! Is he going to blog about it tommorrow, maybe?! Sure hope so! Have a great day everybody! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • All of the costumes look great but the vampire and devil costume are my faves. Count Sharkula and 'Hot Stuff' Francesca will put the 'howl" in Howl-o-ween. :wink:

    What about big boy GK? I bet it's harder finding costumes for him. You all are so creative I'm sure you'll put your paws together and come up with something fun.

  • Ooh scary stuff girls!

    I hope you get lots of 'treats' and not many 'tricks' this Halloween season.

    Love you both!

    We couldn't help but notice that Martha will be visiting San Diego at the end of October for the TEDMED event. If you ladies will be joining her in our fair city, we'd love for you to join us at our Halloween Doggie Cafe event on the evening of Oct. 29! There will be a costume contest (but be warned: the competition is fierce!).

    Of course, if you won't be able to make it, we'd love to show your mom what makes our Campus for Animal Care so special. Just drop us a line if you'd like a behind-the-scenes tour!

    Wags & kisses!
