Thanks. :) He's an awesome dog.

We didn't try to go into the convention; I assumed we wouldn't be allowed in. This was taken at the Hilton adjoining the convention center, which is dog friendly. (It's also where we stayed.)

Thanks! Yeah, we only went out three times for about half an hour each - we didn't want the pup to get overwhelmed or overheated.

OMG... I think I love you...

I can't believe this but I've never seen someone actually dress their dog as Ammy before. And this is so good, you have a pretty doggie~ :D
Just a question, was it hard to get the markings on him/her?
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
I used food coloring markers ([link]) so it was safe for him, and not too difficult for me. I grabbed his muzzle with one hand, applied with the other. Took a bit of time, since he doesn't like to hold still for more than like ten seconds, but not too hard. (Actually, easier and quicker to put on than any of my costumes, if you factor in time to do makeup, etc.)

Harder to do neatly with thicker fur, which is why I only did the head, not the sides. Maybe I'll do the sides on another outing. Once it dried, it actually resisted smudging pretty well.

Ah, I see.
I didn't know they had food colouring markers. The more you know, 'ey?

Yeah, I imagine thick fur would be harder to deal with. My cats a pom-pom and though I'm not into the practice of dressing her up I can only imagine how it would go. O_O

Ooo~ I'll be waiting for when you do. :)

Speaking as a Dog groomer, you can buy actual dog fur dye in marker form these days :p though food colouring is fine as long as its not touching the skin :p

Fantastic costume <3

Your dog is really beautiful... Is she a samoyed?
Perfect cosplay for her btw. :love:

Yep, he is. :) It's a crossplay, but he's so furry, you can't tell.

I really want to adopt a Samoyed later when I have a garden, I love them.
I think Amaterasu must be a Akita but a male Samoyed can be nice too, the bodies are quite alike. :)
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2011
Yeah, they're great dogs. Akitas have more wolfy fur, so probably, yeah. The main issue with both is the curly tail (especially for samoyeds - it looks like a pom pom). I'm going to try to teach Dante to drop his on command, so he looks more like a wolf.

He's surprisingly tolerant, so long as he's being given attention/played with.

The only time he gave any trouble was when he caught one of the wings out of the corner of his eye, and viciously attacked it. It was pretty cute; I wish I had a clip of it.

awww i bet that was cute ^^
that is surprising that he lets you dress him up though. did you even have to train him at all?
Reply
:iconvolko-dav:
volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
Not specifically for this, but we did do a bunch of training. Samoyeds are pretty hard to train - they're willful and care more about playing with people and dogs than about food. Fortunately, he doesn't have any meanness about him at all, so we don't have to worry about him attacking... just about him getting overexcited and jumping on people.
