Halloween Countdown – Costume Inspiration #2

victor and sparky

Attending this year’s big Halloween bash with a pal? Make it man’s best friend by taking tips from Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’, the tale of a budding young scientist and his beloved – and decidedly dead – dog.

Dress up in your best ‘mad scientist’ garb to embody Victor, that’s the easy part. For Sparky the dog? Either add some well-placed stitches and a fake neck bolt to your beloved pup OR if you have an up-for-it friend, tell them not to have a shower for the next two days (for that authentic been-in-the-ground smell) and get them in their best doggy onesy. Just add a lead and you’re done!
