Dressing animals like other animals is practically its own artform by now, but recently a new twist has caught my attention, and I had to share it with you. For a song this weekend, I bring you Billy Bragg‘s
but even that might not prepare you for the craze that is… painting and dyeing animals to look like other animals! Without further ado, here are some of the greatest ones I’ve been able to find.
If you want to turn your dog into a panda, why settle for getting a panda costume, when you can literally turn your dog into a panda?! You know you’ve done a great job when your animal is getting reactions like this.
And skunks might not be the most appealing of animals, but if you’re already a black dog with white marks, aren’t you just asking for it?
Sometimes, simply applying a razor to a cat allows you to transform the king of your living room into the king of beasts!
Known as a lioncut, this can often be enhanced by a bit of color addition to your cat.
And, of course, if you’re going to break out the paint, why not go all the way and turn your animal into a zebra?
For those of you with horses, the zebra-painting is even better!
Finally, if you’ve made it this far, you deserve the top 3 photos of painted animals that I’ve ever seen. Without further ado, here we go! Paint/dye your animal to turn them into…
