Having a ‘whale’ of a time

Recently I was contacted by Joker’s Masquerade about trying out one of their costumes. Mummy wasn’t sure how I’d handle it as although I don’t mind wearing the odd tshirt, I’m not a fan of having anything on my head and the costume she chose had a head piece. But we figured we’d give it a go anyway.

We chose the whale costume mostly because mummy thought it was hilarious it comes in a large size. Unfortunately I’m more on the XL side, but daddy added a bit of extra velcro round my waist to make it fit. It was very easy to put on, especially as the head piece came separately and that fastened round my neck. The quality of the  material used in the costume was very high, was actually surprised how well made it was considering it’s a pet costume. What do you think?

I’m totally working this

I know some people have strong opinions about dressing dogs up, but I think that on occasion (and with the right amount of treats) it can be alot of fun. As long as your dog isn’t stressed I can’t see any harm in it.  I wasn’t too sure about this costume at first, but once I got used to it, I got into the spirit of it all. Shame it wasn’t Halloween as I think I would’ve cleaned up on the treat front! But at least this means I don’t need to worry about what I’ll be wearing this year:-)

Do you like being dressed up?

Joker’s masquerade sell costumes for people too, you can find out more on their site.

Joker’s Masquerade provided me with the whale costume for review, but did not otherwise compensate me for this post. The views and opinions expressed in this post and on this blog are entirely my own.

  3. Misaki! Is that shark eating YOU or are you turning into a shark???!!! Cute costume but it’s about FOUR sizes too small! HAHAHAHA Well done girlfriend….you get four paws up for modeling.

    Hugs, Sammy

  4. Ha! OMG, M. I think you’re too sweet and WAY too happy and adorable to be an effective whale. The costume is cute, though. I LOVE being dressed up. Whenever Mom brings out an outfit or a coat or a scarf, I know something fun is going to happen. I jump on the couch and try to stick my head in before Mom is even ready. Then we usually go somewhere or have company or take pictures and eat treats!

    Love and licks,

  5. Its very cute, but perhaps a wee bit small!

  24. Oh, I HATE being dressed up! It turns me into a statue! But once I start moving then it’s okay. Stanley doesn’t care either way.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    WE think you look SUPERB in your Whale Clawstoom… OMD think about wearing it to the BEACH!!! THAT would be SO much fun… and of COURSE Howl-O-Ween… IS coming.

  26. We will tolerate being dressed up, if nothing is on our heads for cookies. Phod has the same problem, needs a little extra velcro for around his waist. We agree with you that dressing up can be a whale-of-a-good time, when done occasionally.

    Good job Daddy was able to fix the costume, otherwise it would be a diet time 😉
    We got a rider from them but both Bunk and Lilly and just too fat for it.
