Gidget’s Halloween Costume Parade


I couldn’t resist joining this week’s edition of Show Us Your Life over at Kelly’s Korner.  We’re supposed to be showing off our Halloween costumes.  I think the last time I dressed up for Halloween was in college, but I certainly dress up my pug, Gidget, every year!  So here we go with Gidget’s Halloween Costume Parade!

Halloween 2002

This was my first attempt at a home-made costume.  I used a pattern for a Tinkerbell costume except did it in a pink satin.

Not too happy about the whole fairy princess look!

Halloween 2004


My dad always calls Gidget “devil dog”, so when my mom found this mask she had to get it for her. Then I just put her in a children’s red t-shirt and used a pipe cleaner and felt to make the pointy tail.

Halloween 2005 we were evacuated from Hurricane Katrina, so I think Gidget just wore her Devil outfit again.

Halloween 2007


This was a banner year.  I decided to enter our girls in the costume contest at Pet-Co.  McKenzie was a cowgirl and Gidget was a saloon dancer.  Can you believe they did not win?? My mom and I made these costumes from scratch (except for McKenzie’s hat) and they looked sooo cute! Kenzie even had a little holster & gun! Some dog in a store-bought costume won, and I have boycotted Pet-Co ever since! Halloween2007_2 

Halloween 2008

The girls were still so distraught from their loss the previous year that they didn’t want new costumes, so I brought out Gidget’s first costume, a bumblebee, and put McKenzie’s flower headband on her.  Cute!IMG_0606

Halloween 2009 is still yet to be determined.  I don’t have a costume planned, so Gidget will probably just wear her Halloween outfit.  Sadly, McKenzie is no longer with us.

So, yes, I am one of those crazy people who dresses up her dog!  See more of Gidget in her outfits here, here & here.


Happy Halloween!

Geaux Tigers, Beat Tulane!
