Halloween Costume Advice - Help me BARF, Lone Starr!

I did search around and I didn't find anything here about this. There are some random things on the net but what the hell, I'll burn this weeks question on this one.
I have a costume party next Saturday the 20th. My plan was to go as the DC Comics version of Frankenstein.
THEN! Last night a friend posted on the event page saying that he hopes everyone has found their costume! I responded of course with the famous quotable "WE AINT FOUND SHIT!" And then, the most awesome costume idea was cemented in my head. John Candy's BARF from Spaceballs!
I have started to assemble the costume:
Khaki cargo pants
Khaki pocketed shirt
BARF name patch - on it's way to my house!
Blondy feathered hair wig - on it's way to my house.
I'm decently crafty.
I need to find FUR! Any suggestions for buying some fake fur cheap? Should be the blondy brown mutt looking hair like John Candy had. I'm going to hot glue fur to an old pair of shoes to make furry feet. I need the fur for a tail too. I have got to figure out something for the ears too.
Beyond the fur recommendation, I need help with the face makeup. Suggestions on that please? Remember, this will be an Adult party, so there will be drinking and I'd bet it's going to get hot. Make up that won't go everywhere if we get sweaty, and get all over me and everything else is a PLUS!
I've got to dig out my copy of Spaceballs and give it a watch this weekend, it's been a while.
Any help with all that, it would be awesome.
I have Amazon Prime and don't mind ordering things online. Locally I am in South Central PA and can hit up various craft stores.
Feel free to throw any other ideas or suggestions or anything on this too. I mean, it's not like this is a super serious question.
