In one case, the hot dog, also known as frankfurter, sausage, and wiener, is believed to originate from Frankfurt, Germany, where someone started serving meat filled sausages in a bun. However, the most famous place where the modern hot dog was said to have been created is Coney Island, New York, where they sold sausages in rolls to carnival attendees. Some stories point to Vienna, Austria, as the birthplace of the Wienerwurst, the predecessor to the modern-day sausage. Others claim that a Bavarian butcher named Johann Georg Lahner is credited for inventing the “dachshund” sausage. On the other hand, Anton Ludwig Feuchtwanger, another fellow Bavarian, insists that he was the one to invent the concept of placing a delicious sausage into a set of buns.

If you have the time or working within a budget, you can always create your own Hot Dog Halloween costume! To create your own hot dog costume, you’ll need the following:

Tan or yellow color fleece fabric
Red felt fabric
Pillow stuffing or cotton
Needle and thread


Cut out two large rectangles of fleece fabric for the bun. The size of the rectangles will depend on the size of the costume you are making.
Sew the two rectangles together along the long sides, leaving one short side open.
Turn the bun right side out.
Cut out a long strip of red felt fabric for the hot dog. The strip should be wide enough to wrap around your body and long enough to hang down below your knees.
Sew the two ends of the red felt strip together to form a loop.
Stuff the hot dog loop with pillow stuffing.
Attach the hot dog loop to the inside of the bun using pins or sewing machine.
Cut out small circles of red felt fabric for the ketchup and mustard toppings. You can also use other colors of felt for different toppings, such as relish, onions, and pickles.
Glue the ketchup and mustard circles to the hot dog using a hot glue gun.
Wear the hot dog costume over your clothes.
If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can hand-stitch the bun and the hot dog loop together. You can also use fabric glue to attach the hot dog loop to the bun and the ketchup and mustard toppings to the hot dog.

Here are some additional tips for making a hot dog costume:

You can add a layer of batting to the inside of the bun to make it more plush.
You can also add a hood to the bun to make it look like a hot dog bun with a sesame seed topping.
You can use different colors of felt to make different types of hot dogs, such as a chili dog or a corn dog.
You can also add other accessories to your hot dog costume, such as a ketchup and mustard bottle or a hot dog cart.
Have fun and be creative with your hot dog costume!
