As Halloween approaches and party invitations start rolling in, what’s a guinea pig fashionista to do? If you head on over to Cuddly Cavies Creations, you’ll find a selection of guinea pig costumes following a variety of themes. For nearly a decade, Terry Smoker has been making hand crafted guinea pig costumes out of her home in Narvon, Pennsylvania. She also enters her own guinea pigs in local costume contests. From brides to bubble bees, cowboys to fairies, Cuddly Cavies Creations has something for every taste. They also carry costumes to fit rabbits and dogs.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of the animated series South Park, have mentioned how the costumes were perfect for their Guinea-Saurus-Rex in a behind the scenes look at Pandemic 2: The Startling (Season 12, Episode 11, Original air date: October 29, 2008). It seems the pair enjoyed working with Cuddly Cavies Creations because it was a time saver and fit well in their budget. Trey Parker explained, “…but the best part was the costumes we didn’t even have to make. We came up with the idea of putting guinea pigs in costumes and… we just typed… guinea pigs in costumes on the internet and found a website where this woman makes all these. All that we just ordered on the internet for like two dollars. It was great. We have tons of guinea pig costumes now.” You can purchase the Purple dinosaur costume seen on South Park, a Cuddly Cavies Exclusive, for $14 plus shipping.

Each hand crafted costume fits a guinea pig of approximately 8-9 inches long from ears to end and with a 10-11 inch round waist. We suggest measuring your guinea pig before ordering clothing and costumes for a proper fit. Most of the sets include a costume and a hat although you can purchase just a hat in many instances. One of the more unique items available for purchase are the diapers. These body suits for your guinea pig contain a highly absorbent pad for use during lap time and will allow you to enjoy spending time with a guinea pig that might have urination issues. Like all costumes, this item is not intended for long term wearing and should only be used with supervision.

If you want to receive a costume for your guinea pig by Halloween night, you must have your costume request and money order to Terry by October 18 this year. Although orders had been shipped internationally in the past, Cuddly Cavies Creations is currently shipping within the United States only. All customers who pay with a money order will also get a free gift, currently a scented guinea pig shaped soap. If you have any questions or want to catch up on the latest costumes and trends, you can chat with Cuddly Cavies and other costumed guinea pig fans on Facebook.

Halloween isn’t the only time of year to visit the Cuddly Cavies Creations online shop. The have clothes to fit every holiday and occasion to make your charming boar and lovely sow the life of the party.

  1. Angela, first of all a profound Thank You for your oh so welcome work!!! And the professionally impeccable way you’ve presented it. I’m a writer and publisher in Kent, Ct, and I’m very interested in the idea that GPs need a PR facelift . I’m publishing a PR-based book soon and I think the publicity would benefit me, you, and piggies in general. I’d like to present this story to the national PR press, and would like to be able to consult with you on it via email. My email address is I have five genius piggies, Houdini, Twyla, Muttonchops, Crazybaby and Frito. I consider myself the luckiest woman in the world to have them, and I really take seriously the level of ignorance that they have to deal with. I myself have made terrible mistakes early on. Anyway, if you’d give me a way to contact you directly, I think we can create some great buzz, and it will be fun. Again, thanks so much. Have a great Wheek.
