Pets. We love them. We play with them. We take pictures of them, but let’s be honest, they are just so… plain.

I was looking at my dog the other day. I’ve had him for a few years now, and the cuteness of watching his head disappear into his waste disposal unit for an hour is fading. Don’t get me wrong. I love my dog, but being an Uber-Nerd I can’t have a non Uber-Dog.

I started to realize I spend a small fortune picking out my gear for a convention or event, and never think about man’s best friend. So I began searching for options, much like I did when I decided my car needed something more when I posted “Pimp my Prius“. (I was going to title this post segment “Pimp my Pooch”, but for some reason that just sounded wrong.)

Well good news! With Halloween coming up it is easy to kick the cuteness notch to a whole new level (without being accused of pet cruelty)! There are literally hundreds of ridiculous Halloween pet costumes to put your pet in.

We’ve all seen the assorted ballerina, cheerleader, reindeer, and pumpkin costumes, but why be boring with these lame outfits? If you are truly a proud nerd, it’s time to refit your pet with a real outfit! One that will make the other dogs, howl with envy. Show your nerd. Go for the big time!

Here’s our top 10 pick of the litter (sorry for the pun) on how to improve your pet’s persona, and your standing as a member of an Uber-Nerd Nation! I’ve listed them in no particular preference other than category. I also included size links to make your browsing easier than mine was.

Super Hero Themed Costumes

__________________________________________________

#1 Wonder Woman Pet Costume

Two Words: Golden Lasso. It's freakin' included. This Wonder Woman dog costume is hysterically awesome, but please don't spin your dog in circles to change them into this costume. This is really cute, but I would think you need a calm dog for it.

Listed Sizes:

#2 Superman Pet Costume

Let your pet know how super you think they are with this Superman pet costume. This looks reasonably comfortable, like those dog shirts. Shouldn't be too much of a problem to put on, as long as the cape attaches somewhere. Costume does not provide flight ability. Please close your windows if you live on a high floor.

Listed Sizes:

#3 Batman Pet Costume

This Batman Pet Costume proves one thing. Batman is a dog. I've said it for years. Holy Bat Bones! It even has the utility belt, but I would hold back from putting snacks in it.

Listed Sizes:

Star Wars Themed Costumes

#4 Darth Vader Pet Costume

Darth Dog! For that little Sith hound who has the potential for the dark side! Ewoks don't stand a chance. The poop is strong in this one. We could not stop laughing when we saw this one. This is sure to be a classic.

Listed Sizes:

#5 Yoda Pet Costume

Yoda + Dog = DOGobah heaven (yes I know it's a typo)! As my dog would say (he speaks to me when I am sleeping - doesn't yours?): lick or lick not, there is no try. We all know our pets are smarter than us. They just act dumb to make us feel better.

Listed Sizes:

#6 Princess Leia Organa Pet Costume

Who needs Princess Leia in a bikini? This is way cuter! The Princess Leia pet costume will have your friends joining the Rebel Alliance. It even has the signature hair buns! Is it wrong I think this looks hot?

Listed Sizes:

Fantasy Themed Costumes

#7 Godzilla Pet Costume

Dogzilla! Fire breathing not included. Now if only they had Mothra...

Listed Sizes:

#8 Pirate Pet Costume

How many times has your dog said Arrrghhh. This Pirate Dog costume makes sense and may actually put some context into those growls. With it's hook leg, it's really funny, but I can't picture my dog liking a patch on his eye. Still cool though.

Listed sizes:

#9 Medieval Princess Pet Costume

Go Medieval on your pet with this Fairy Princess Pet Costume. Wings and magic dust not included. Not quite sure why it is called a Fairy costume, but it fits right into a Renaissance theme.

Listed Sizes:

#10 Knight Pet Costume

Every Fairy Princess needs a hero. This Sir Barks-A-Lot: Knight Costume for Dogs, ensures you will never LARP alone! I love this, but I don't think this is for dogs that drool a lot. Looks like it is missing a sword, but you can probably Velcro something on or you'll just have to train your pet on how to sword fight using their jaw. No guarantees though.

Listed sizes:

You can be sure no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong. Just be careful to pick out the right size and order early. Halloween will be in a little over a month, and unless you are fine with paying for express shipping, plan ahead.

Please leave us a comment on your favorites or feel free to send us photos of your original pet costume ideas! I am sure someone out there has a Borg Bulldog!

Personally I am not calling these Halloween Pet Costumes. To a true nerd, this is appropriate for daily wear.

Which are your favorites?
