The Secret of Winning Costume Contest

Do you know what is the secret of winning a costume contest? Handmade costume with a theme in mind that caught audience attention.

As you know, we have lots of competitors on K9 costume contest. In order to win, be sure the costume is mommy handmade instead of purchase from somewhere. Like mind, my mommy bought 3 pieces of fabrics, craft supplies, and few basic hardwares to create a nice costume from scratch. A sewing machine, glue, and basic supplies make a big difference to win the judges points.

My mommy went to the fabric stores to get 2 asian style fabrics with dragons printed on it, and a simple pattern fabric for my pants. Then, she went to the craft store to get origami paper to make my hat. Her last stopped was to the hardware store to get basic supplies to make my swords.

She had an idea to create a doggie version of the Last "Woof" Samurai. Most people knew and had seen the movie. When I showed my costume, the audience and judges could put and imagine my costume to the movie.

Once put on the costume, all we needed to do are smile and enjoy the contests.

Woof... Woof... Good Night

Dear Perry,

Congratulations on your big win at the costume contest. You looked very comfortable with clothes on. Do you wear clothes regularly or it is just for special occasions?

I also realized your hair is soft and silky for a 13th y/o Tzu. Would you share your secret?

Hugs,
