The mummy: Possibly one of the easiest ones to pull off. According to Pet MDthere are two ways to go about this costume. True to form, this costume can be pulled off with an Ace bandage or cotton gauze. Wrapping whatever material you go with around the torso, legs, and part of their head. They recommend leaving the face and rear area uncovered. If wrapping up your pup is not something you want to do, you can also go with a small white jacket with gauze placed horizontally across the garment.
