It’s October, and nearing that special time of year that kids of all ages dress up in ridiculous garb and beg money from kind strangers, then come home to worried parents rifling through their prizes for razors and poison. Good times, good times.
Unless, of course, you’re one of those poor creatures who do not pick out and dress up in costumes: those who are dressed up in costumes unwillingly. The pets.
I searched the internet for many many tens of minutes and for my efforts have compiled a collection of ten awesome pet costumes. Most are dogs, because they are big enough to dress up and also because cats tend to cooperate not much at all when it comes to costumes. Unless you’re planning on going as “person scratched all to heck.”
#10 – the hot dog.
Cliche and predictable, yes, but nice execution and pretty dog.
#9 – Darth Pug
Honestly, I wouldn’t care for this as much if it wasn’t a pug. But it is a pug. Comedy genius.
#8 – Cat the Cat
I can’t help but wonder if the owner has somehow missed the point of dressing up the cat. However, the fact that it looks totally miserable is so hilariou–OH MY LORD!!! THE EYES!! THE EYES THE EYES!! WHAT IN HEAVEN IS WRONG WITH ITS EYES!!?
#7 – Dragon
I just gotta give them props for dressing up a lizard. I mean, dang.
#6 – Dog Butt
Is it wrong that a dog with a plastic butt should rank so high on the list. Probably.
#5 – Too Cute
Would you just look at that? That is so cute my heart stopped. I just want to put it in my pocket.
#4 – Top Cat
Everything’s funnier in a top hat and oversized bowtie. But I think this costume is less what the cat is wearing, and more how he’s wearing it. He looks like he belongs in a top hat. I be he’s got a cane too.
#3 – Just…wrong.
I literally can’t look at this without laughing. Not sure if it qualifies as a “costume” since it’s painted on the cat, but I don’t care. Ah, me. Poor cat.
#2 – Croc Dog
This is just straight up clever.
#1 – Going Completely Too Far, Lady. Too Far.
This one…I just…words fail. Again, painted on the fur and less a real “costume,” but I gotta give the poor pooch credit for being the best sport in the world. What effort. What painstaking effort. Fur had to be grown out, trimmed just so, dyed just so….
There you have it folks. Be nice to your pets, people. Next time you think of dressing your animal up for fun…just think of creepy eye cat. *shudder*
Though if you do it anyway and the result is hilarious, shoot me an e-mail or something. I might post it.
