Contributor herrinkr describes how this hand-made costume was created: "The air tanks are made of aluminum water bottles with a felt wet suit. The fins, snorkel and mask, from a doll, work just perfectly. And finally, a tire gauge with some tubing for the finishing touch!"

Lucy and Barkley as Mermaid and Fisherman
"Every year I make costumes and my husband does a photo shoot of the dogs for holiday cards and window display for our gallery in Rockland, Maine," luckydoggallery writes. "These two are great sports about the whole production, and play along. You can see how thrilled Lucy is, and Barkley is just a big ham. They are rewarded for their efforts with a lot of positive reinforcement and dog cookies. You don't have to be crazy... but it helps!"

"Seamus is our senior Poodle mix rescue dog," writes melina11. "He came to us this summer from Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY. Seamus is an older gentleman who was found wandering the streets of NYC. He is missing some of his lower front teeth, which allows for his lower canine teeth to stick out in perfect vampire-fang fashion! His fangs were the inspiration for the Dracula costume, which was handmade by me."
