WTF Wednesday - Pathetic Halloween Costumes

Desperate to fashion something even vaguely suggestive of Halloween costumes for me and Pea, momma scrounged about the estate and produced, well, see for yourselves...

OK, this one isn't too bad, but seriously, methinks maybe for our holiday photo (although the tie does match my lipstick very nicely).

I would rather have seen Pea stuffed into his monkey suit for the third year in a row. In fact, I kind of look forward to him squirming around with momma chasing him about with the flashy, but instead we get this!

Like, oh BOO, I am so scared.

Finally, the most pathetic, WTF excuse for a costume. Huh? Now I'm a cowgirl or something?

Sheesh! Get a clue, woman!

You know what is even worse? I totally wanted to do an awesome post worthy of my large and entertaining self and this is all my dear readers get. As if!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Anybody notice the dearth of comments from my large and always wanting to visit my pals self lately? Yuh, let's just say, idiot human, busy brain, etc., etc.

We've missed you...

They are sure some awesomely pathetic costumes.. Though you do look very smart in a tie!

Well, being as we doesn't have that Halloooweeenie season here, I don't be an expert on costumes. But I do agree wif your relentless self that you look some what girlie in dat scarf fing!!!! BOL! I is waiting fur dat day when the hu-mum tries to put da rain deer ears on my head. Does your two leggers try that trick too?


Declan said...

Well the tie isn't too bad... but scarves guys? What is your mum thinking?
I hope it hasn't given my mums any ideas! :)

Uncle Mango, for a minute there we thought you had been to the Vet and turned into Auntie Mango. Blimey!

We know Dexter probably doesn't care if he looks like a labradork cause that's what labs are like, but to inflict this on your huge and noble self is an injustice.

Thankgoodness we don't celebrate Halloween cause mum would have even less imagination than your poor Momma.

No worries (and hopefully no more pitiful costumes for you), and love, Stella and Rory

The Musketeers said...

I'm alright with the idea of a tie, but scarf? Slow down there dude! BOL, I understand how you feel, we were force to take photos wearing it yesterday. And it wasn't a pleasant experience. :P

Just Ramblin' said...

This cracked me up and has helped to start my day in a bright and laughing mood. Thank you! : )

Priscilla said...

Poor things!!! I think you have to subscribe some latest fashion magazines for your momma urgently!

Well, both of you still look OK, quite entertaining in a way!

The Island Cats said...

Those costumes are pretty lame, Mango! We're just glad that our mom hasn't tried to do anything like that to us...yet!!

Gus said...

Teka is recycling the witch hat for the third year. And you think your Mama is lame....hah.


Anonymous said...

We want to see the Pea in a monkey suit...

H and the fabulously one year old Flo. :)

Lassiter Chase and T said...

Well, I'm glad you both still head your heads up high, even with the costumes. Us dogs are such great sports when it comes to doing ridiculous things just to please our humans!


Girls you look good.
hee hee

PS- it's a fashion faux pas to match your lipstick to your tie

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

You both looks very nice in your costumes. But I really don't get it. The humans celebrate Halloween don't they understand that this maybe is their holiday? Last year I was dressed up and well. . . I bit the mom so she is usin last year's photo for my profile and said she wouldn't dress me up this year. I was thinking you could maybe try this apporach but with your large mouths I don't think that would be a good idea . . so guess you are going to dress up this year. Sorry.

Babuskas?? Really?? We do like the tie and lipstick though. Quite 'fashion forward.'

Heather and Pumpkin said...

You should have commissioned my Mommy to make your costumes. PeeWee could be a Grande and Mango could be a Venti!


SissySees said...

Sissy thinks they're all fab, because she strongly prefers to only do head and/or neck wear. Gretchen however, seconds your pathetic and is hoping her mama is on the ball...

(Mama says hope springs eternal. Guess I need to shop.)

HoundDogMom said...

And we thought we had it bad at our house. Yikes, we are running for the hills. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

jen said...

LOL! No matter what you guys would wear you would still look great!!

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, I think your peep is costume-challenged! I know you can do better. I loved your get-up for the Haunted Treasure Hunt! That was a pawesome costume...drool and all! BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Amber DaWeenie said...

Well, can't expect much more when da Mommas are busy. At least you got someting for Hallo-WEENIE. All we gots is our furs! :o(

PeeS....You guys are handsome anyway!

The Army of Four said...

Uhh... since you're half a continent away, I'll say it -- in that last one? You look rather ... babushka-esque. Ya know?
I really hope this doesn't give our mom any crazy ideas.
Play bows,

Frankie Furter said...

Is your mom thinking of

I think THAT would be the scariest of ALL Howl-0-Ween thingys EVER!!

Stay FAR from the MangoMobile... until this insanity passes.

Sue said...

Our Mom doesn't like Halloween so we all go naked. We think she just doesn't like to part with any of her chocolate. Good luck with the costumes, like maybe you could dig a hole and bury those.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Stumpy wishes I would manage a costume half as good as yours, so she could get some treats!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

Maggie Mae said...


You and Dexter have babushkas on! :)

Hilarious fun!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We are so happy that our mom doesn't make us dress up for Halloweenie! We feel badly for you!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Jasmine said...

Oh my. My big sister Avery just said it all: "Those are NOT cute..." Sorry 'bout that. Mommy isn't dressing me up for Halloween, but guess what my Avery is going to be...ME! She is going as Princess Jasmine! Can you guess who chose my name?

Puppy Love,

PS: Maybe someone will take pitty on your embarassed self and give you extra nommie treats!

Cinnamon said...

Mango and Dexter, would you like to dance with us in those costumes? Oh, we will have to find our own costumes that match yours before that!

Clive said...

Ah Mango, Murray was smiling away here anyway!

Happy Halloween to you all regardless!

- Clive & Co

Lucille, the Great Dane from Italy said...

you look great in any outfit you wear!
Even if they dress you up as a girlie, your very masculine self is clear, no worries about that!
Dreaming to see you for real one day Mr Mango Man!
Ciao Lucille

KB said...

The Labraduo over here says that your costumes are WAY better than theirs!

Quit the complainin', Mr RH!

Honey the Great Dane said...

oh dear, Mango – now I am feeling the pressure. We tend not to celebrate Halloween much here Down Under but with all my American friends making such a fuss, I'm beginning to feel like I need to make some effort!

Two French Bulldogs said...

Oh Mango we LOVE your tie and Pea, the babushka!!
Benny & Lily

Raymond and Busby said...

That tie does match your lipstick quite nicely Mango. Our human is horrible at helping us comment lately too. Jeez!

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

Well at leat your Momma made an effort! No costumes here for us to chew... oops sorry meant wear!

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

Chester said...

I have not had to endure the embarrassment of Halloween dress-up YET and will be more than glad to perform the same antics as Pea if Mom even tries. You do look rather sharp in your tie, Mango - kinda like you're ready to take on the corporate world.

Woofs and incorporated slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Mom says she's just gonna dye my fur green. Lazy female! I don't think she really is... I mean she wouldn't would she? :O

Mango you look dashing in your tie and collar and with a cowdog hat, well, the ladies would be swooning at your ever large self non stop ;)

Dexter you'd look good with a diaper on your head. What can I say dude. Handsome handsome handsome :)

Waggin at ya,

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

We don't mind our costumes that much!! Sorry that you got the head scarf though. We DO like your tie!!

Woofs and Kisses!

violett said...

Hi Mango,
With necktie You look very dignified. But that's not enough for Halloween. We are accustomed else from you.
In Germany there is something more moderate. I may not dress myself. But here no one will ring at the door with "Trick or Treat". I do not need anybody to scare.

Marjie said...

Poor Momma. I heard that "making a living" stuff is getting in the way of "living" stuff.

Anonymous said...

Oh Mango I think that you look very handsome in your tie!

As far as Dex goes, well ah, well, ah, I think dat your Mom needs to keep lookin, ya know?

woos, Tessa

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Mango Dahling... you are the most handsomist hugist wonderfulist pup in all of matter what you wear!

Hound Girl said...

OMG Mango you are a cowboy - now you can come to Texas to stay with us just grab your boots :)

Dex you are so scary in your bandanna...ohhhweeee im scared.

The real question is what is your mommy going to be for halloween :)

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Dexter, Awwwwwwww you are adorable.

Mango, so very handsome in your tie.


Anonymous said...

Mango...I hate to say it but, well, have you ever seen a picture of one of those old Russian ladies - a babushka, is what I think they call them? sayin'...

I DO like how your tie and your lipstick are so nicely color-coordinated, though. Most Impressive!

Wiggles & Wags,

Momma's color coordination is most excellent Mango. I'm sure your lady friends are smitten :)

Stacey said...

haha, LOVE the tie one!! business doggie! great pictures, i need to get my two an outfit!

Karen said...

Those look like the costumes my dogs get. If I put anything on them they dont last more then a few seconds. I have some crazy pooches in my house. Adorable dogs :)

The Thuglets said...

OMD.... Mango Mate! Poor you and Dexter. Thankfully we don't have to dress up.

Babushka ya ya!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Our Mom has been so busy panicking, erm, preparing for this 'job' thing of hers that she kinda forgot about Halloween. Which is Fine By Us. We prefer to be nekkid, and since Mom doesn't have the time/energy to do anything about it now, I think we're safe. HOWEVER, our Granny thought it would be SO FUNNY to have some 'themed' holiday pictures, and I have seen with my own eyes an elf hat and a set of antlers. They better be going on Mom's head. That's all I have to say about that!

BTW, you look stunning in your tie!
