- Celebrity Pets
For the fourth year in a row, we had a terrific group of costumes to choose from for Lady Bee's 2010 Pet Costume Awards. We're giving 13 awards in categories such as Best Lady Gaga, Best Church Bingo, Most Helpless, Fiercest, and Best Naughty Sex pet costumes. We also award a Grand Prize for the best pet costume overall. The winning entries came from the dog, cat and bird species. Sorry, no reptiles this year.
Without ado, I'll let these pets and their costumes speak for themselves.
Cat costumes are usually pretty lame, unless they are Japanese. But the ToScarboroughFair shop at Etsy.com is responsible for designing this cat headdress and other costumes for cats that represent the pioneer days and Thanksgiving. The head coverings by this intriguingly specialized designer are all handmade and make wonderful Halloween costumes for cats. The designer even provides advice about placing head coverings on your cat so they will stay there.
Maybe not so fierce on a little dog, but very cute!
The Lion Dog Costume is available at Maskworld.com in many sizes. (Update: Maskworld.com no longer has the costume, but you can see other lion costumes here.)
The Doginatrix Dog Costume is just perfect for a Doberman... don't you think?
The hot costume for dogs this year is a Lady Gaga costume. Doggy Gaga costumes are many and varied, but this blingy Gaga took the prize. Photographer Jesse Freidin has photographed an array of them, adorning professional dog models.
For those of you who don't know Zelda, she's one of the most popular dogs around, her mom having made her into a legend in her own time. Charles Gibson of Good Morning America called Zelda, "the industry's top dog." No doubt, he was referring to the marketing industry. Among Zelda's many talents, she's a clothing model, and her mom... well, she designs some awesome costumes for her. Zelda's Cave Dog Costume is available from Amazon.com.
This cutie - the costume, that is - comes in several sizes at Amazon.com, but I can't imagine a dog feeling any dignity in it - especially when the stuffed spider legs wiggle all around when he walks.
Avian Fashions always keeps their birds in fashionable clothing that doubles as diapers, so the birds don't make too much of a mess on your own clothing... and elsewhere.
The Ghost Dog Costume is so cute with the beady black eyes up on the head. The outfit has three layers so air fills them up and it looks really spooky when your dog moves. Even more ghostly on a white dog!
I have not been able to locate a retail source for this costume (maybe it is handmade), but it is quite original and it's very becoming as well.
The metallic silver jacket and the plush red rocket give lots of pizazz to the Rocket Space Costume. This is a well made costume, so it's a bit pricey, but promises to be in style for a long time to come.
A second award for Zelda, she's a veritable gambling grandma here, and I wonder what words of wisdom Zelda would have for this costume. Zelda left her pink satin heels at home, but you can purchase the rest of the costume at Amazon.com.
This costume should not give you any ideas... It's just a costume... available at Amazon.com.
The Barking Bat Dog Costume is an adorable costume on the right dog. This Airedale carries it off!
