Hollywood-Inspired Dog Costumes for Halloween

Halloween can be fun for everyone, not just the humans. Check out these Hollywood-inspired dog costumes. Who will your pooch be for Halloween?

Summer is still in full swing, so it may seem a bit premature to start thinking about Halloween costumes. But everyone’s favorite dress-up holiday is only a few months away! If you have both yourself and your pampered pooch to outfit, it’s time to start your research. Here are some of the best Hollywood-inspired dog costumes around.

Glamorous Dog Costumes

Have you ever caught your little chihuahua or poodle looking at the cat water fountain as though she wished it was spouting champagne? Then these dog costumes may be particularly fitting for your little diva:

Marilyn Monroe

There is arguably no actress who exemplified old-school Hollywood glamor quite like this blond bombshell. Now your pup can capture her iconic “Seven Year Itch” look with a white halter dress and platinum-blond wig. (Gust of air blowing up out of the subway grate not included.)

Lady Gaga 

Fast-forward some 70 years, and there’s another blond star who’s captivated America, this one because of her outlandish outfits. If you choose to dress your dog as Lady Gaga, you’ll probably want to skip the pop singer’s infamous meat dress (sorry, Rover). Instead try a costume with a hair-bow wig, a spangly, ruffled bodysuit, and matching shades.

Dorothy or Glinda

Deck your canine out in a blue-checkered dress and pinafore and some ruby red slippers. You’ve got yourself a doggy version of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz! If your pooch is particularly good at making dreams come true, there’s also a beautiful pink gown-and-crown costume so she can be Glinda the Good Witch.

“Ruff” and Tumble Dog Costumes

Let’s say you have a boxer, pit, or french bulldog. A glamorous girl costume might be funny, but why not outfit your dog in something slighter more butch, to suit his personality?

Indiana Jones

Does your pup love to explore, and sometimes get into trouble doing so? Then this Indiana Jones costume, complete with a brown leather jacket, Jones’s signature fedora, and a whip, is ideal.

Mr. T

Even if you never watched the classic 1980s drama “The A Team,” you’re probably familiar with its most beloved celebrity, Mr. T. (and if not, well, we pity the fool.) This is one of the most instantly recognizable dog costumes around, with a mohawk wig and gold chains.

The Incredible Hulk

If you are short on time or cash, and you have a short, stocky, muscular dog, here’s a DIY dog costume idea that will make your pooch the talk of the party. All you need is to get a pair of jeans that will fit your dog’s haunches, then cut them into shorts with ragged, torn edges. Then use some non-toxic body paint to color your dog’s fur that perfect shade of Hulk green.

Last, but Not Least — A Latte Dog Costume

What does everyone in Hollywood have in common? Their love for take out coffee, whether it’s a pumpkin spice latte, an iced mochaccino, or a venti house blend with stevia and soy milk. You can purchase ready made coffee costumes for your pup, but they’d also be fun and easy to make yourself.

Dress your dog up like a Starbucks cup and who knows, you might even get a free frap!

Lady Gaga & Her French Bulldog, Asia

Lady Gaga’s Dog: A French Bulldog Named, Asia:

It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
’cause you were born this way, baby”
– Lady Gaga, Born This Way

lady gaga french bulldog

lady_gaga_french_bulldog_asiaNot sure if Lady Gaga was inspired by her female French Bulldog puppy, Asia, when she wrote that song, but I guess it’s possible.

Anyway, she describes her intense love for the dog as “an illness,” so I guess you could say she’s a “dog person.”

In case you aren’t tired of celebrity selfies yet, here’s one that she took of herself and Asia, together with her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney: (posted on Instagram)

Not sure what Asia is thinking in that photo, but I guess dog’s don’t really know what “normal” is anyway.

If you’ve seen the Poker Face video, you might have thought that Lady Gaga preferred big dogs, but apparently not. Well, her fans are eating up recent videos of the puppy, as the one showing Asia playing with the starfish got over 120k likes!
