Everything You Need to Know About Our Deadly Dog Costume
Our Deadly Dog Costume is the perfect 2021 Halloween costume for dogs, which is why we went all out. This costume is perfect for small to medium-sized dogs that want to strike fear into the heart of those around them (before offering a few kisses and begging for some treats of course!). Small dogs, in particular, will love the power that comes with wearing this outfit—let’s explore why.
It’s Adorably Spooky
When Halloween rolls around, we all have to decide if we want to dress up in something scary—or if we want to be cute. In this case, your doggo really can have the best of both worlds. At first glance, people might be alarmed to see your doggo’s surprising tufts of red hair and the clearly bloody knife in their adorably stuffed hands, but this is one costume that just gets better the more that you look at it. As far as Halloween dog costumes go, it brings a killer balance.
In this delightful rendition, we’ve made a few changes for doggy convenience to help you shop dog costumes. Fans will notice that the usual Good Guys logo has been replaced with a canine equivalent for accuracy. It now reads Good Dogs, and this is one decision that we were way too happy to make. All dogs are Good Dogs, and this reminder is a perfect addition and prompt to remember that your pup is still perfectly good—even in a scary costume.
After people get over the shock of seeing your dog looking like a famed killer, you can absolutely guarantee that it will be time for a photo op! At first glance, this costume can be a little unsettling until you really zone in on that precious doggy face. Shopping costumes for dogs is always better with photos featuring different breeds, after all! People will start with alarm and trade it for absolute delight within an instant, and no one will appreciate this attention more than your pup!
The real charm of this costume is that it is fairly funny. In the original renditions, Chucky was always painted as a somewhat comical character—and this was a trademark of the movies. Chucky is a foul-mouthed talking doll, but the movies are lighthearted enough to warrant quite a few laughs from the audience too, so we wanted to carry this into the design.
Even though this costume is a little spooky, it is also pretty hilarious. These goofy red locks look downright comical when surrounding a little doggy face, and for small dogs, it can be that much funnier. We absolutely recommend this for doggos with an expressive face because it really does add a lot to the overall effect. With this Chucky costume, the most charismatic doggos can really shine.
For ages, we humans have delighted over dogs when they do “human” things, and this costume has that feeling built right into the design. This forward-facing outfit instantly transforms your pup into a two-legged doll shape with stuffed arms that are an absolute joy when your doggo is walking around—but be warned—if you forget that your doggo has this on and they strut into the room for Treat O’Clock, you might just have the daylights scared right out of you!
It’s Easily Recognizable
Popular costumes are popular for a reason, and this is one costume that really hits the mark in that regard. Chucky has been a huge fan-favorite for literal decades, and you can always find these costumes in human costume shops. The majority of people can recognize this popular media sensation for what it is, and that makes this costume an instant hit. It’s one of few completely commercial costumes for dogs.
There are few things people love more than popular costumes during Halloween. While original looks can be exciting, there is just something special about the classics. With this costume, your doggo can bring the classics out in a brand new way. People will love seeing your pup all dressed up in the signature Chucky style, making this one costume that is ideal for showing off.
We highly recommend this costume for anyone who is looking to show their favorite canine companion off this year. This look is wonderful for dogs that will be attending Halloween parties, participating in a Howl-O-Ween gathering, or just dressing up for an amazing October photoshoot.
We Made it With Care
We love dogs, which is why we create high-quality products that are perfect for dogs in every way. Our Deadly Dog Costume, like all of the outfits we sell, was made with your doggo in mind—and that can really make a big difference. When you shop dog costumes, you want to make sure that they are actually good for your dog.
The costume is made with a high-quality cotton and polyester blend, which makes it soft on doggo skin and breathable for those active pups that just don’t know how to stop running and playing. We made this design to support couch potatoes and athletic dogs alike with a big focus on doggy comfort.
While doggos love comfy clothes, we also recognize that their humans can run into issues when their clothes aren’t made to withstand the tests of time. This is why our Chucky Dog Costume is also designed to be washed in your washing machine at home. Just follow our instructions and you’ll be able to get rid of the dirt, grass, and anything else that your furbaby gets into. Pawrents love when their pet’s items are easy to wash, and we are happy to make that possible. You can always clean up the costume for reuse next Halloween!
A History of Chucky
The Child’s Play franchise has tormented viewers for over thirty years, and it won’t be slowing down any time soon—but who is Chucky, really? What makes him such a good costume option for your pet? Well, let’s talk about that.
Chucky was first introduced in Child’s Play in 1988, much to the terror and delight of fans of all ages. This classic slasher flick focuses on Chucky, a murderous doll—but there is a lot more to the story here. Though Chucky is the iconic doll, the doll itself is actually possessed by serial killer Charles Lee Ray after police think that he has finally been killed.
After taking over the doll, Charles Lee Ray spends his days and nights as Chucky, leaving a long list of bodies in his path. He can be spotted sneaking around, violently murdering people three times his size, and saying rude phrases to the delight of his largely adult audience, but this was just the start.
Child’s Play was such a hit that Chucky and his antics inspired countless other creations. There are three official Child’s Play movies in total, but that isn’t the end of Chucky’s tale. A new set of movies surrounding Chuck were introduced starting with Bride of Chucky in 1998 and ending with Cult of Chucky in 2017. In 2019, a Child’s Play reboot graced theaters too. Of course, the world isn’t done with Chucky yet. More media is in the works, and that is why it’s a good time to pick up this costume.
Why This Costume is Perfect for 2021SHOP COSTUME
A True Classic Never Goes Out of Style
FUN BUT SCARY
After 2020, we’re all feeling a little crass and weird—and that’s okay. Chucky’s rude phrases and disturbing acts are just as wonderful now as they were when the franchise started back in 1988. Now that 2021 is here and we can celebrate Halloween with our loved ones again, this Deadly Dog Costume is making the perfect appearance for the year’s celebrations specifically because the next era of Chucky is here.
The New Chucky Series on Syfy
It isn’t a secret that the Syfy channel has delighted audiences with hilarious and terrifying scary movies and shows throughout the years. We can all look back fondly on the disturbing tales brought forth by Ice Spiders or the classic Dog Soldiers. People look to Syfy for films that are a little weird, a little scary, and a lot of fun. So, it isn’t a surprise that they have decided to run with the Chucky franchise.
On October 12, 2021, Syfy will reveal its new series: Chucky. This modern take on the original franchise is following right on the coattails of Cult of Chucky, but this time, Chucky is taking on a modern twist—and an older target.
While traditional Chucky showings often focus on a young child for support—because children and dolls do tend to go hand-in-hand—this modern story focuses on a teenager instead. Though we have seen Chucky take on plenty of adults and chase his childhood companion into adulthood, this new take focuses on a 14-year-old boy who finds Chucky at a yard sale.
As you might expect, Chucky’s new companion, Jake, is not exactly living a normal life. His mother has recently passed away, and he is grappling with a series of unpleasant bullies while at school. Already traumatized from the loss of a parent, he is also at war with his peers and learning more about his identity as a gay teen in a town that just doesn’t seem to accept him.
This modern revival is poised to be one of the most groundbreaking moves in the franchise’s history with modern characters, modern drama, and a big focus on a town as a whole rather than just a series of murders. In this new series, we are set to learn more about the town, its characters, and the truth behind Chucky himself. Filled with new characters and old ones alike, Chucky is guaranteed to make a splash—and that is what makes the Chucky Dog Costume such a perfectly timed look.
Child’s Play is Forever
Since Chucky and his films have plagued viewers for literal decades, it is time that we have to admit that Chucky isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Like other key slasher flicks, the Chucky movies have left an indelible mark upon the media world. Most of us can recognize Chucky at first glance, and no one is really surprised when they keep making more.
While plenty of franchises, particularly in horror, have continued to make and remake their movies ad nauseam without the best results, the truth is that Child’s Play has passed the tests of time again and again. Every time we revive Chucky for a new movie or series, we add a little more to the franchise. This cult classic is a film that transcends the ages, making it wonderful for families with age-appropriate teens—and it is certainly great for watching with your doggo.
Since Chucky and his methods have lasted this long, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this franchise’s popularity isn’t going anywhere any time soon. The reality is that Chucky might very well be as popular as he is now in another decade, which makes our Deadly Killer Dog Costume a delightful investment.
As we continue to remake Chucky movies, we will see subtle changes. The Deadly Dog Costume was made to mirror the classic Chucky style, but a few years from now, the costume might offer a fun, retro look for your favorite canine companion. Either way, your dog will always be in spooky style for Halloween!
