You must have one patient dog to let you put stuff all over it's back. My dog hates to sit still unless it's for pets and she hates having anything put on her.

And I just have to say. SO AWESOMELY EPIC!

Heh, I don't know if anyone would call Dante patient. :) Holding still isn't really in the nature of Samoyeds. Fortunately, the costume is really quick to put on. And he doesn't really care about it being on him so long as he's the center of attention. :)

Definitely not for every dog... I think that much attention would not agree with many...

Oh my dog wouldn't mind the attention alright, it would be the putting up with wearing the costume in the first place. You're really lucky you can do that with your dog.

Is that an American Eskimo? I grew up with those dogs...so sweet!

It's a Samoyed, which is pretty much like an Eskimo, slightly bigger. Also a spitz breed, also extremely friendly. :)

Best costume.

Was he allowed in the convention center? Are you going to bring him to other cons?
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
Actually, I'm not sure if he'd have been allowed in. We didn't try, assuming he wouldn't be, but when I (later) looked at the con rules, I didn't see anything on the topic. So maybe we could've gone in. :) Ah well, maybe we can try next time.

It'd be great to take him to other cons, but we don't have other concrete plans. It'd have to be somewhere reasonably outdoor / dog friendly, and within driving distance of Boston. Not many things fall in that category. It's also a lot of work to bring him and take care of him, so it'd have to be a reasonably big con, to make sure it's well worth it. :)

My friend sent me a text that she saw Ammy running around at Otakon.
A real Ammy.
I didn't believe her.
:heart:

I always wanted to do this with my dog, but alas, not many cosplays a German Shepard/Corgi mix can fit XD

:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
Hmm, maybe Ein from Bebop? Depends on the ratio of Shepard to Corgi. :)
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
It's all true. :) I think only a small fraction of the con saw him - we only took him out three times for 30-40 minutes each, to keep him from getting overheated / overwhelmed.

Needs eyeliner, and maybe darker dye, and a slight trim, mainly the tail.
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
Well, I'm not going to trim anything on him for cosplay, and likely not do eyeliner, either. Darker dye would've been nice, but it's hard to get food coloring of the right shade.

He also needs mini-wings on his paws, and clouds coming off his wings, and stripes on his sides, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Dante is a samoyed. It's sort of the russian version of a huskie.
