Best Cheap Dog Costumes for Halloween: Dog Halloween Costumes – Inexpensive Pimp Dog, Princess, Prisoner

Halloween kickoffs the season of holidays and heralds the beginning of fun and excitement as Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year soon follow one another. At the onset of October, planning for Halloween parties begin and every party host puts in great efforts to make his or her party as hauntingly thrilling as possible. Planning has to be done on several fronts like sending Halloween invitations, arranging for decorations, deciding activities, games, party menu and costumes and so on. However, before embarking on the planning activities it is necessary to decide your Halloween party theme. All the other factors will be dependent on the theme you have chosen; if the party is for adults then the scary element can be heightened while a party for kids has to be a mix of fun and little amount of fright.

Here are some of the best cheap dog costumes for Halloween. Dog Halloween costumes can be unique and inexpensive like: Pimp Dog, Princess Dog, Prisoner Dog, Patriotic Tea Party Dog, Sailor Dog, Bumble Bee, and more.

Under $10

For real economy, try getting a quick and cheap outfit at an “on sale” price. Or buy a dog hat or some dog accessory, and use that as the whole costume, or add something simple like a bandana to complete the look. A self-made or home-made costume will be truly unique.

Add a purple bandana, make a tie on skirt, and add some cheap jewelry. Or make a price tag and hang it down from the hat and it’s a Minnie Pearl Costume. Look this up if unfamiliar with the look.

A Bow tie from SuperStarPetLovers ($3) can be the basis for several costumes with a bit of imagination. Wikipedia has a “List of Bow Tie Wearers” including:

  • Bill Nye
  • Pee Wee Herman
  • Groucho Marx

Unique Costumes

A truly unique costume can be made with a simple bow tie, hair products, and body paint. For example, Groucho Marx needs a “mustache”. A Pee Wee Herman Dog needs his hair slicked down. Even a suit could be painted onto a Pee Wee Dog, but try it ahead of time. Or, get heavy white paper to make cuffs for a Chippendale dog.

SuperStarPetLovers.com has a Patriotic Bandana which would be great for a Tea Party Dog. They have a lot of cheap accessories which are found by searching for “hats”. Their Bark For Green Scarf could have plastic bottles or cans tied around the pup’s waist to make Recycling Dog. Make sure the bottles don’t jangle and scare the little guy.
