Introduction

Cosplay is an exciting activity many humans love to do. We love to dress up as our favorite character from a video game, an anime, or a manga, as well as comic book heroes, and making costumes, learning how to move like your favorite character, and showing all of that to the world is fun and very exciting. However, what’s even more fun is cosplaying with your dog by your side, as you instantly get more options and gain cuteness points when you show up with your adorable pooch at the next cosplay event!

Before you go out into the world to showcase your fantastic cosplay costumes, you need to make one first, right? Not only will you get to make a costume for you, but more importantly, you and your dog can collaborate and create a fantastic costume for them as well. Get some fabric your dog doesn’t mind wearing, dust off your sewing machine, and start crafting! Your pup can be your model and you can make a costume that fits them perfectly, all you need is a bit of creativity and a dash of teamwork to make it happen!

Step
1
Measurements first
Before you start sewing, you have to measure your doggo to make sure that the costume is not too small for them. Depending on the style you are going for, measure their “waist” size, their height, and the circumference of their neck.
Step
2
Make a pattern
Next, it is time to start making a pattern. Once you have your doggo’s measurements, it will be easy to create a pattern for their new costume. Be precise here and allow them to sit with you and maybe even hold the fabric in place with their paws.
Step
3
Sew
Finally, it is time to put the costume together. Once you get the initial sewing done, make your doggo into a model and have them try on the outfit to see where you need to make it looser and where it needs to be tightened.

Once you have your costumes ready, it is time to start practicing for the big show. The best way to show off your fantastic clothes and your ability to transform to your favorite human and canine characters is to put on a little show for everyone present in the cosplay festival. Teaching an old dog new tricks might be hard, but not impossible, so put on good music, get some delicious treats, and teach your doggo how to dance. You can come up with a simple but effective choreography and put on an amazing show for your audience!

Step
1
Step by step
Start simple. Figure out what you want to achieve and start with simple steps your doggo will learn quickly. Every time they manage to follow what you did, give them a treat and praise them. Once they figure out the first step, let them know that they are a very good doggo and encourage them to do more.
Step
2
Dance, baby, dance
Now that you got the individual steps covered, it is time to connect them to a cohesive unit. Practice a lot and practice in your costumes to see if you can do all the movements. Can your pup do a figure eight or weave? How about walking backward as part of the dance? After you both have the moves down pat, you are ready to perform!
