She won 3rd place!!
Lots of people asked me what breed she was. A few times I answered "she's a cross between a tiger and a Retriever" and one person said "Really? Wow!" :-)
So here is how I transformed my dog into a tiger. She's already red, so I just added black stripes. I used a washable marker to draw a pattern on her (use one hand to hold her steady and the other the marker). Then use black face painting to go over the stripes. I used my finger. It was really easy actually.
I used two of these and bought them at Walmart
The only problem with this costume is the mess!! By the time Sadie was done with all the activities at Petsmart, I was covered in black paint. It was so worth it though!! She was the center of attention.And the paint came off really easily in the shower.
