Okay, so maybe he isn’t the office dog, but he does belong to one of our most creative staff members, Simone. And now his adorable little face is popping up all over the Internet:
Maybe I should start at the beginning. A month or so ago Simone, who is our Social Media Guru, whipped up an amazing Harry Potter costume for her pup, complete with Gryffindor cape, striped tie and even Harry’s iconic black-rimmed glasses. She then graciously typed up the instructions and shared them with us all.
Fast forward to last week when Simone was lucky enough to be a guest at the Martha Stewart Show. She quickly became best buds with Martha and they’ve kept in touch via Twitter. But despite their budding friendship, Simone was still stunned yesterday when she found out that Martha had mentioned her Harry Potter Dog Costume on the air and posted a snapshot of it on her website (click through to slide 4 to see Simone’s pup in all his Harry Potter glory). Or I could just show it to you here:
Yes, that’s our Harry “Pawter” on the left and Martha’s face right next to him on the right. We’d call that famous!
As if that wasn’t enough, Simone’s pup has since been featured by our friends over at Craftzine. Before you know it, he’ll be gracing the cover of Vogue!
We love that people love our doggie Harry Potter costume so much. If it was up to us, there would be a whole army of Harry Potter pets parading around on October 31st!
For anyone who wants to make a Harry Potter dog costume of their own, just head on over to Simone’s tutorial and she’ll walk you through it step by step.
