Homemade Zombie Treats Dog Costumes
I was insired by all the sweets given out during Halloween, and wondered what the undead might enjoy. I made everything except the Ghost Maid outfit that I am wearing. I am serving numerous Zombie Treats (but anyone can partake), which include Fresh Brains (provided by my two papillons; Cricket and Patches), some pickled eyeballs, Dried Fingers, and Critter cupcakes! Then choose your poison to wash it all down with either the Graveyard Spirits, Ravens Blood, or Roadkill Elixier. Eat if you Dare!
The eyeballs were made with ping pong balls, that I printed irises out and glued on. Then added red strands of yarn for bloody veins. placed in the glass and covered with two part epoxy, that expanded and overflowed during drying. Add a fork for taste testing, and your done. Cup cakes and critters were made with air dry clay, cup cake papers, and painted with acrylic paint. Dried fingers were made by applying several coats of Mold Builder Liquid Latex to my own fingers (allow to dry between coats). After dry, peal off carefully, and stuff with cotton balls, seal opening shut with a glue gun, and paint with acrylic paints. Then add broken up press-on finger nails and paint. Add them to a small dish and decorate with a spider web made from hot glue. Choose other labels from the internet to add to different bottles, cut out a board to make a tray (allowing to opening for the dogs heads), and a handle on each side for me to hold the tray in place. Then cover the tray with cheese cloth and epoxy all of your treats to the tray. The dogs are suspended around my waist in front facing dog harnesses, and I made partial masks with brains for them to wear. Make a menu board with prices, and add it off to the side. Finish off by adding the front banner “Zombie Treats”.
