Initially, it seemed like an easy project but a busy summer enabled me to procrastinate. By the time Elliot decided to dress up as Doggo for Halloween, I only had a few weeks to make the costume.
My kiddo lives in hoodie sweatshirts, almost year-round so I saw making this costume as just another way to expand his wardrobe. The base of the costume is an orange hoodie with brown, red and green stripes on it.
Initially I did use duct tape to model how the design would work, sort of as a test run. It was super easy to put a few strips of duct tape on the costume to get the basic look for a Fortnite Doggo costume.
This Doggo costume sweatshirt was the hardest costume for me to create. Mostly because I had unrealistic expectations of how easy it should have been.
How To Make a Doggo Costume
If you are sticking to simple stripes on the front of the sweatshirt, then it should be fairly straight forward to make with duct tape or iron-on vinyl. I wanted the stripes to go around the back of the sweatshirt at the shoulder and sleeves like the actual Doggo skin in Fortnite.
