I got these vintage WWII era goggles at a flea market a couple of years ago. I thought that they looked really neat with the green glass inside the frames. Unfortunately, they were a little ravaged by time and most of the fabric on the sides was ripped off. That was a total bummer, but I figured I could always repair them if I needed. Then, I kind of forgot about them, thinking they made a cool vignette on my shelves.

Ok, I saw this idea in Martha Stewart living and couldn't resist trying it myself. Though I don't have a dog, one of my friends said I could dress her dog up for Halloween. Wooohooo! My cat never lets me dress her up any more, so this is a great new avenue for me.
Here is the link as well as some instructions for how Martha did her tank: http://www.marthastewart.com/852544/doggie-dino-tank?czone=holiday/halloween-center/halloween-center-costumes
However, I did things a bit differently based on what I had available. So....
|Inside, with all spines inserted|
- tank (my friend's dog is medium size and turns out she fit about a child's small t-shirt)
- foam sheets (mine was green, but I think black might have looked even better)
- sewing machine (optional)
