10 Video Game Halloween Costumes--For Your Dog!

So, because Halloween is approaching and you're a video game addict, does it also mean that your dog needs to be subjected to humiliation? Of course it does! There are way too many lists out there featuring great video-game related Halloween costumes, but not a single one for man's best friend.

So, if you're thinking about humiliating dressing up your dog this Halloween, the following is a compilation of the most unique, strange, and cute video game-related Halloween costumes for your furry companion.

10. Mario (from the Super Mario Bros series)

Your dog can now look just like everyone's favorite pixelated plumber/carpenter/doctor/sports star with the Super Mario dog costume. Since it's believed by dog enthusiasts that pets come better in pairs, a similar looking Luigi costume is also available.

9. Pac-Man

(from the



This costume deserves an honorable mention for the tremendous amount of effort it took in order to make this dog look ridiculous. You have to hand it to poodles, they're always on the receiving end of humiliating haircuts and dog clothes.

8. Princess Daisy/Princess Peach (from the Mario Bros series)

There are costumes available for the bitches, as well. The Princess Peach and Daisy costumes will make a great match for the Mario Brothers.

7. Gameboy System

The original Game Boy- the portable system than ran on four AA batteries and used a non-backlit monochromo screen to display 8-bit graphics. Sure, it sounds ridiculous now, but in 1989 everyone had to have one. Now, you can have your dog dress up as the iconic handheld gaming device and melt the hearts of long-time gamers everywhere.

6. Spartan Soldier (from the Halo series)

Instead of forcing your dog to wear that ridiculous Master Chief helmet from the Halo 3: Legendary Edition bundle, force him to wear this ridiculous orange costume of the Spartan Soldier instead. Sure, he may look like a chocolate/orange pastry, but that'll add to how cute it is.

5. Pikachu
(from the Pokémon series)

Poor dog. Look at him, he's trying to play it cool despite the slightly less-than-cool Pikachu hoodie he's forced to wear. Although he isn't too thrilled that he's wearing a Pikachu costume, there's no doubt how cute he looks.

4. Link (from The Legend of Zelda series)

Natalia over at Geekologie must be a huge Zelda fan, considering that she named her dog Link and dressed him up as the Legend of Zelda character of the same name. Just about every component of Link's costume is here; his Hyrulian shield, the green tunic, and the Master Sword on the correct side.

3. The Prince
(from the Katamari Damacy series)

There's no better way to declare how much of a game geek you are this Halloween than to dress up your dog as The Prince from the quirky Katamari Damacy games. the only things missing from this costume is a ball, attached with miniature buildings, mountains, and wiggling people.

2. Amaterasu (from the Okami series)

Amaterasu, the protagonist of the under-appreciated game Okami, gets a great costume that only hardcore gamers will recognize. Bonus points for the dog looking fairly cute, and must have been patient with the whole thing.

1. Fox McCloud
(from the Star Fox series)

Fox McCloud is down! Perhaps he should have done that barrel roll after all.
