Can You Make Your Own Hot Dog Costume? Yes. Yes, You Can.
The hot dog costume is a glorious way to pay tribute to your favorite food. But say you’re saving all your pennies for Ball Park Buns, and don’t want to buy one already made. No worries; we’ve got you covered, so to speak.
Here’s what you need:
- The bun: Tan clothes
Sweats are the comfy option here, but if you want to take it up a notch, you can go with khakis and a tan work shirt.
- The dog: Red felt
Get a piece that runs roughly from your shoulders to midshins in length and from shoulder to shoulder in width, then round the corners off with scissors.
- The mustard: Yellow fabric marker
You may be a ketchup fan, but for the sake of the costume, go with mustard. Use a yellow fabric marker to make a squiggly line down the center of your red-felt dog.
Put it all together by attaching the dog (once your mustard has dried, natch) at the shoulders and knees with double-sided tape. Now, don’t you look good enough to eat?
