Dear Paws to Talk,
My neighborhood Halloween party is this weekend and I have no idea what to dress up as. Last year, I went as a ghost and many people told me I wasn’t very creative. Of course, this is not true as I like to paint portraits in my spare time.
I just ran out of time to get a lovely costume. This year, I really want to make a fabulous impression. What should I be?
We’re sorry that others made fun of your costume last year. This year you are going to wow them with your creative and festive look. After much barking, we have come up with the following suggestions.
Dress as your favorite food
Bella: I would be a filet of salmon.
DiDi: I would be a stick of butter.
Don’t forget to eat your costume after the party!
Be an Olympian
Bella: I would be Nadia Comaneci. Who wouldn’t want to be a perfect 10?
DiDi: I would be Misty May-Treanor. Anyone who gets to run around the beach all day is my kind of human.
Remember to accessorize with your gold medals!
Go as your favorite TV character
Bella: I would go as Joan Holloway from Mad Men.
DiDi: I would go as Brenda Leigh Johnson from The Closer.
Master an impression of your character.
Be a newspaper headline
Bella: “Standard Poodle becomes first dog to win Nobel Prize”
DiDi: “Dog digs hole from her yard to China”
Be sure to fact check your costume before going out.
Bella and DiDi
