    I am in love with this costume:

    Animal Planet Stegosaurus Dog Costume - Party City

    I so want a stegosaurus Lucy. My problem is, it looks like the tail and ears are squooshed up in the costume. Is that safe for more than 30 seconds at a time? I was going to take her to a couple local places with costume events, but I need reassurance that it's not dangerous to cover her ears and tail.

    If it is a bad idea, perhaps she will just be a banana again.

    Ears might be a bit uncomfortable but there's no harm done. The tail? Well that dog looks like a pemmie so no tail shows but i think the tail just sticks out the back under the costume tail.

    Right--I saw that dog probably has no tail. Hopefully you're right and it just sticks out the back! I found it on sale on another site :)

    And bonus, her easy walk harness will clip nicely under it so i can take my little dinosaur out easily :)

    They should put little velcro straps under the dino tail to secure the doggies tail under it, so it can wag with it... hehehehe XD

    Yah it looks like the tail for the dinosaur has stuff in it so it stays stiff, and the dogs tail just goes under. As far as the ears, it is not dangerous, just depends if she will like it or not LOL. Worst case, between events you can take the head part off.
