Construction worker dog costume
Workout costume made out of an old shirt and some duct tape.
The other day I was trying to find something to wear to the gym and I came across these.
They look super cool and I got them from a thrift store for $10. I decided to make some new outfits and this is one of the first things I made.
I made a worker dog costume with an old shirt and duct tape. I decided I wanted the shirt to be black because it's what I have on and it is a heavy shirt. So I wanted a way to make it stick together. I used duct tape and I think it worked really well.
I took the shirt and cut off the sleeves and then put the rest of the shirt around my waist so that there was no way the duct tape could fall down. Then I taped the collar onto the shirt and I also put a hood on it so that there was no way the duct tape would fall down. I then taped a little bit of duct tape over the pants so that there was no way for the duct tape to fall down. I did this to make sure that I didn't get the pants caught in the zipper of the shirt.
This took about 20 minutes and I was really proud of how it turned out. I have worn it at the gym before and I think it turned out really well.
I would love to hear what you all think of this idea! Leave a comment below!

I love your new creations! I have a work out outfit of sorts that I am working on and I was just wondering if you could help me.
My workout outfit consists of two pairs of jeans that are too small, but stretchy and a tank top and a sports bra. The only thing I would like to know is whether or not it is ok to wear the same tank top for two workouts in a row, and if so, how do I remove the stains? I use a lot of sports drinks and they usually have a lot of residue. I do my best to wash them regularly, but I also use lotion during my workouts so I think they can be quite slippery. I am not interested in wearing a sports bra, so my only option would be to remove the top.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
P.S. I am going to a convention this weekend and my mom said she would buy me some work out clothes to bring with me since I am staying at the convention center. Any ideas on what I should wear to the convention? I am not really worried about how I look and I am comfortable with my figure, but I feel like a plain tank top might not be the most appropriate for this occasion.
Hi! I am really excited to have gotten into the habit of posting on this site and I am always so pleased to see your comments. I will say that this costume looks awesome! I think you did a fantastic job on it and I will be really interested in seeing what you make next.
I have a question. I am working on a project for work that involves an extensive period of time in a wet environment, and I was wondering if I can use a rubberized waterproof shirt for a costume, because I was not sure how comfortable the costume would be for that period of time.
Hi! My name is Kristin. I have read a lot of your posts and they are all very helpful!
I am working on a costume for my daughter’s birthday party this coming Saturday. She is a huge sports fan and plays soccer so I have been planning on making her a little soccer outfit. I was wondering if you had any recommendations or had made one similar to mine, so that I could see what you think looks good on a child of her age?
Thank you so much!
P.S. My daughter is only two and I would really like to be able to get it done in time for the party.
I am looking to make a superhero costume for my daughter. I have been doing a lot of reading and my best advice so far is to make it for her a size up. I have also found that this is the best way to stay as true to the comic as possible.
I have never done this before and was wondering if you had any recommendations?
Thank you so much for your time!
P.S. My daughter will be 7 in September.
Hi, I’m glad I found your blog.
I would like to make some superhero costumes for my kids.
I have searched the Internet and have found some really cool costumes, but not the right kind. I am planning to make a Superman costume and Spiderman and a Batman costume for my kids, ages 8 and 5.
I would like your advice on what would look best on kids of this age. I would like to be able to find good quality and reasonably priced costumes, but I don’t want to spend too much on it and I don’t want it to look too silly or weird.
P.S. I have done some reading on your site and I really appreciate it!
I would like to know how you attached your shirt on your costume. I have tried duct tape and it does not hold it, or I do not have enough to do it. I want to make it in a more durable and lasting way, but I have a hard time coming up with a good idea.
I am making a superhero costume for a boy who is 5 years old. He loves superheroes and he is really excited about it. He is going to be Batman, and I am making him a cape and the rest of the suit, so I am very excited about it!
I am wondering if there are any other superhero costumes for a boy his age. If not, I would really like to know what would look best on a kid his age.
