I found a Halloween costume for Hamish Macbeth!
I was leaning towards dressing him up as a Mermaid or a Bumble Bee because I like the colors. But as I scrolled around one just jumped out at me- this year Hamish Macbeth is going to be a pirate just like Jack Sparrow.
After all it’s fact. Hamish is just as cute and twice as sassy as Jack, so it’s a perfect choice.
In case you’re curious It was easy to get Hamish into the costume ( except for the hat, which I will have to work on because he hates them and as you can see I sort of tied it on his head for the picture ) I’ll take better pictures around Halloween of him all snazzy looking and you’ll see how cute that hat really is.
It didn’t even take me five minutes to get him into it- he’s used to wearing a harness that he only wears for walks, so he’s used to having something wrap around his middle and I was able to fit it over him with no problem. He’s also used to getting his nails trimmed so it was easy to guide his paws through the little pant legs . His back legs and tail aren’t covered and the costume doesn’t even fit down that far on his back.
As an FYI Hamish is a solid 80 pounds and he has the traditional stocky English Lab build so he fit into the large with no problem. He was also able to run around and jump up and down off the furniture with ease so the costume didn’t restrict his movements which is probably why he wasn’t in a hurry to get out of it- unlike his butterfly wings which he sort of hated with a passion and the minute I turned my back he was rubbing against the wall trying to get it off.
I hope you enjoyed seeing Hamish’s dress rehearsal and we can’t wait for you to see how he looks on Halloween!
