Okay. This may seem extra, but I just felt like I needed to make a halloween costume (or two) for my hamster. I thought of it one morning & just hadda do it. Kyrie is a teddy bear hamster named after kyrie irving, who’s currently on the celtics. I had a lotta ideas, but settled on his celtics jersey & a slice of pizza. So, yeah, I made halloween costumes for my hamster, lol. Let’s do dis.
This was pretty easy! I went to the craft store & bought a buncha felt, but had everything else I needed. For the jersey I used green & white felt & white fabric paint. I cut out the ones to make the eleven & glued those onto the green jersey. Then I used a brush to write ‘IRVING’ with the fabric paint. I added a little strap that went over his head so he could still walk around in it. Just living up to his name & looking adorable in his celtics jersey!
The pizza is yellow and tan felt, plus red so I could make pepperonis.
I glued the tan crust to the yellow triangle, glued on the pepperonis & the hamster pizza costume was done! This isn’t actually attached to him, I just laid it on top of him. You could add a strap if you wanted it to stay on and be more practical, but it’s not like he’s walking around his cage wearing his pizza costume, so I skipped that step.
disclaimer: no hamsters were harmed in the making of this blog post & I’m not playing favorites, isaiah (our other hamster) is a roborovski, so he’s really small & fast, he woulda hated wearing a costume!
In da comments, let me know what your pets are being for halloween! I gotta know.
