Canine costume ideas

If there is one time of year that LGBT+ rule above all others it’s Halloween. We throw the best parties, the movies and tv specials are queer as fuck and when it comes to costumes, there’s no competition. Halloween is for a lot of us the first time we let our freak flags fly high, our first time in drag and we can dress like sluts and no-one can judge us for it. Who gives a damn how cold the weather is when you feel hot as hell. But what costume to where? Why not combine your pup side with a ghoulish or enchanted twist? Here are a few ideas to get you started.

#1 Mummy Mutt

A classic costume, especially on a budget. Wear your standard pup hood and wrap your body in loo roll. The benefit of this costume is that, intentionally or otherwise, your bondages are going to unravel and your costume will get sluttier by the hour. What you wear underneath, well that’s up to you.

#2 Cerberus

The three headed dog that guards the gates of the underworld, Hades’ faithful pet is perfect if you happen to own a collection of pup hoods or have friends who don’t mind sharing. Pull on your hood and attach two more on each shoulder. The perk of this costume is that you get triple the amount of candy.

#3 Skeleton

Not even death can stop a true party pooch. The *Spooks Hood* from Wruff Stuff glows in the dark so why not add some body paint so that even in the darkest of dark rooms you will shine. Watch out! You know pups love bones and if you’re not careful, then another pup will be after your big bone! We have Pup Necro giving us the ultimate slutty skeleton with nothing but a bumbag and a smile… we think.

#4 Wolf-man

Want to embrace your pup side but not quite ready to show off to the normal folk, you can grab this classic costume at any fancy dress shop and howl at the moon to your hearts content with no-one being the wiser. And if you happen to be on the hairier side, why not show it off by tearing up that shirt.

#5 Anubis

Cats might have been sacred to the ancient Egyptians but when it comes to gods, everyone recognizes the dog headed Lord of the Dead. A jewel encrusted golden chest piece and a revealing loincloth will have puppies offering to you their eternal holes… I mean souls. It just so happens that our Pup-In-Chief: Piglet has an outfit to model.

#6 Dia De Muertos Dog

What could be sweeter than a Sugar Skull dog. The Day of the Dead face paintings have become an incredibly popular choice of masquerade and it’s about time us pups got in on the action. Brand new to the Wruff Stuff shop, this hood comes in a wide variety of dayglow fluorescent colors to customize your perfect Halloween face, and are currently on offer so head over to (once you’ve finished reading this issue of course).
