Jimmy Fallon Tight Pants Pup Costume

You guys!!!!  We have laughed about this for days and I am DYING to share with you the costumes that we made for our 2 Boston’s Wallace and Gertie.  (If you are unfamiliar with Tight Pants, you will most definitely want to watch this video.)

 

You might remember that we are planning having a tight pants Halloween themed parade during our trick or treating adventures.

…so of course the dogs needed a Tight Pants costume too.

To make this costume we used:

;

A thrifted T shirt (striped of course)
Baby Tights
A hair scrunchie.  Made out of hair.
Liquid Stitch (or a sewing machine)
Black Elastic

Start by cutting the front piece off of your T shirt and fold it in 1/2 hot dog style.

I eyeballed a dog shirt pattern and cut out this shape, making sure to preserve that awesome mock turtleneckiness of the collar.

Then I Liquid Stitched the front piece of the shirt together.

The elastic was tied onto the scrunchie in 2 spots to make a little hat.

And the feet were cut off of the tights.

Then we laughed and bribed the pups to sit still long enough that I could get a picture.

7 Necessary Products for Restoring a Trailer (or Any Space for that Matter!)

Dudes!  We are overhauling a 1972 Bell Travel Trailer!  Follow the entire series from the beginning here!

What started out as an ugly duckling with a lot of potential (if you closed one eye and squinted the other) is fast becoming a swan.  With as much work as the little Nugs needed, we have learned a lot (multiple times) so I thought it would be fun today to share 7 of the most necessary products to fix up a trailer, or really any space!

7 Necessary Products For Restoring A Vintage Trailer

 

1. ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape.  Lets just start off by acknowledging that ScotchBlue™ is the mothership when it comes to DIY support.  Everything from help protecting the awesome floors from caulk, to getting a super sharp paint line, to taping off the outside pattern (eeeee!!) It is #1 on the list for a reason.

2.  3M™ Patch plus primer.  We made a lot of small holes.  We also had a lot of small holes to fill.  Patch plus primer is hands down my favorite patching product, because it sands so smooth and doesn’t have a completely different sheen when you paint.  The proof is in the pudding on this wall that we had to patch.

Can you believe that this is what that wall looks like now!?

3.  3M™ Advanced Abrasives  So maybe sandpaper should be my #1…hmmmm.  Literally every.single.surface in this trailer has been sanded more than once.  From the drywall, plaster, stucco and wood, to the floors.  I’ve learned that a little 3M™ Patch plus primer and 3M™ Sandblaster™ Pro Advanced Abrasives can really fix just about anything

4.  3M™ Sanding and Fiberglass Respirator.  So much sanding, so many unknown treasures on the walls.  Taking care of our lungs is critical because let’s be honest, who wants lungs full of mold and sawdust?  Not this girl.

5.  Eye Protection.  I had a pretty crazy experience while I was cutting the moulding for the cabinets.  A piece of wood the size of a matchstick broke off of the piece that I was cutting and flew up and hit my eye.  Or what would have been my eye had I not been wearing 3M™ Chemical Splash/Impact Goggles.  I have never had that happen before, and I was so glad that I didn’t injure an eye and my sanity working on this thing.  Sanity eventually comes back, right?

6. Hearing Protection.  When in the presence of power tools (and children) ear muffs are crucial.

And last but not least #7.  Court’s favorite thing to come out of the Nugget.  3M’s Auto Electrical Repair Kit.  Update on this post he still wont let me use it.

Looking back through my computer to find the pictures for this post made me a little astonished at just how far this little trailer has come!  Holy cow. I cant wait to see it when it’s all finished!
