As a celebrity, I expectantly have a very full wardrobe, ranging from costumes for entertaining to apparel for keeping up with the latest fashion trends, to even superhero outfits for the occasional crime fighting I do.
My dachshund costumes and outfits are a combination of hand-made, store-bought, and re-purposed items.
As seen in our viral videos topping over a total of 20 million views online.. it’s our minions costumes! I never had so many people ask us where we got a costume than with these ones right here… So you can now find a DIY tutorial on how to make these costumes for yourselves here.
It is very important we clarify that this is not a costume – the BATDOG suit is a custom-engineered, flame-resistant, bullet-proof outfit used for fighting crime and infiltrating the dubious wired hair dachshunds. I custom ordered this outfit from Wayne Enterprises (supposedly they have a pet department).
I’ve probably been asked by literally a million people where we got this costume from. It was homemade/repurposed plush toy. At the moment we do not custom make/sell them. You can find our Minions videos here and here.
Cop car costume
This was a homemade costume that was used in the infamous “cops & robbers” video which can be seen here.
This was the costume I wore while performing my amazing yodel in Switzerland. Read about that here.
Two Monkeys Carrying a Box of Bananas Costume
This is my award winning wiener dog costume of two monkeys carrying a box of Dole bananas. I’ve always said us dachshunds are monkeys, so making this box costume seemed obvious ; )
This is my chef/baker costume that I use for my Cooking with Crusoe blog posts. I may not know much about cooking, but at least when I put this on I feel like I do. If you follow my cooking posts, keep in mind they are more for the entertainment value than the educational value.
I am an extremely avid fisherman (dog), so it was only natural to obtain my own fishing outfit to complete the look. I get very excited when there’s a fish on the line, so much so I would probably jump in after it if it wasn’t for people holding me back. See my post dachshund gone fishin’.
Dachshund on Stilts!
A popular meme was made of my picture, which you may have seen. It said: “They said I could be anything, so I became a doberman”. My stilts are very useful for accessing a variety countertops and side tables, not to mention they help me see far. Read about my adventures on stilts here.
For all my sailing adventures across the high sea, I can be seen sporting my captain outfit, completely customized with the dachshund logo. You can find this costume in my blog post where I introduce Captain Crusoe.
Long Body Crusoe
Beware the notorious wiener pirate who goes by the name of Long Body Crusoe. He sails the high seas looking for sexy ladies and treasure troves of squeaky toys – as first scene in my summer tribute post.
My Hunting Hat
Whenever I embark on a hunting expedition, I need to look the part. Here is my very fashionable and warm hunting hat made with faux fur. It was first seen in my hunting adventures with Oakley blog post.
Snorkel Gear Costume
On my recent trip to the Bahamas, I brought along a full set of snorkel / diving gear to use. I was quite disappointed when I realized this was not real gear, and that my mask was very leaky. However, I did look really good in it, and that’s all I really care about anyway.
Wile. E. Coyote Costume
This was my most recent Halloween costume, for which I won an award for ‘most original’. It was a great costume, however I was always worried someone would light the fuse on that rocket without warning me. So I was always watching my back.
My Life Jacket
Here’s me in my awesome Outward Hound life jacket, made specifically for small dogs like me. You can find this life jacket at PetSmart. I use it on most of my kayaking adventures and boating / fishing trips. (Mum insists I wear it even though I’m an expert swimmer).
This is my brother Oakley (left) and I (right) on a day we really felt like sporting some bling and cash. This pic is from my post on Dachshund Bruthas from Different Muthas. When Oakley and I get together, we often find some very interesting ways of keeping ourselves entertained.
Pool Party Dawgs
Here’s me with a few sexy ladies in our poolside getups where we enjoyed some sun, cool drinks, and fun in the pool. As seen in my Sexy Ladies Wiener Dog Pool Party post.
My ‘Thinking Glasses’
I’ve always said these glasses are not for reading – they are to help me think more sophisticatedly. I only wear them when I have some critical thinking to do, or when I need to portray an image of being an exceptionally smart dachshund, (which I am).
Not so much a costume as a persona. On my recent trip to the dentist with Mum, I ended up saying ‘heck with this quack’ and taking over to do it myself. I seem to have a hard time getting along with doctors and vets and such.
I wore this costume to one of the annual wiener dog races in Montreal, for which I won best costume. A lot of people were laughing at me when I wore this, which I was not very happy with. This is supposed to be a cute costume, not a funny / look at the skunk! / haha / type of costume.
Every year, Santa Crusoe comes to town – usually with his little elf helper Oakley (that’s my bro). By coincidence (or perhaps not), wired hair dachshunds have never seemed to make the list. I guess I’m not surprised. They’re not to be trusted.
Winter Jacket & Neck-Warmer
Where I live it can get pretty cold. This is one of my many winter outfits for confronting those cold days. Don’t I look nice and cozy?
This is my lovely Spring/Fall jacket. It has a soft interior and waterproof outside so I don’t get all wet and water-logged (nobody likes a wet wiener). It’s also specifically made for dachshunds.
This is my nice and warm hoodie sweater that I usually wear around the holidays when visiting my bro and family. It’s stylish and cozy!
This is my spider costume which I really only wear to scare to away visitors I don’t care for. In this picture, I was waiting for the ‘potential renters’ to come check out our condo (before moving to our new house) to spring out and scare the bejeebers out of them. This is MY home.
Sexy Boxers & Shades
When I’m feeling particularly sexy I like to throw on a pair of smiley face boxers and pose on the couch with aviator sunglasses. This one really drives the chicks wild.
