Happy Thursday! With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to share a few last minute couples costumes for you and your pet. I got the idea to shoot this fun Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf when Charlie Cupcake was still a tiny puppy.
This little munchkin may look like a stuffed animal, but he nearly ate me alive the first couple of months after we brought him home. When Mr. Cupcake joined our family he was 8 weeks old and weighed only 6 lbs. I used to joke that he looked like a teddy bear and bit like a wolf… that is when I wasn’t screaming “Charlie, don’t bite Mommy!” and going through boxes of Band-aids and Neosporin.
Unfortunately I waited until last month to shop for a costume for our Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Cupcake look. It ended up being really easy to find my red cape and the white dress, boots and picnic baskets were items I already owned. I found a bunch of adorable wolf heads on Etsy, but most of them wouldn’t have arrived on time for Halloween. After expanding my search to Wolf costumes for babies and toddlers, I found this costume that came with a matching wolf onesie suit. Mr. Cupcake was fascinated as he watched me stuff, sew and add extra velcro to the hood so it would fit him without falling off, but I think he just wanted to eat it. 🙂
