"Headless Ghosts of the 1700s"
Aladdin and Phoenix are dressed as Headless Ghosts of the 1700's, the Gray Gentleman and the Luminous Lady. The Luminous Lady cut off the Gray Gentleman's head in anger, and now he carries it each Halloween.
We hand-made these costumes for our dogs Aladdin (The Gray Gentleman) and Phoenix (The Luminous Lady) from different pieces of material, pieces of various costumes, a mannequin torso, paint and stuffing. We used pieces from old ghost costumes and cut a hole in the jacket of the headless one for the dog's head to go through.
We purchased a mannequin torso on ebay which we painted to look ghostly and a little bloody. We put stuffing into the gloves and attached them to the sleeves of the dress and shirt. The floating ghosts and the headless illusions are real (they looked the same in person).
We did not digitally alter this photo in any way.
