Halloween Costume Ideas for your Pets

Dressing up for Halloween isn’t only for the kids and adults, now you can put an appropriate costume on your favorite pet to celebrate this unique holiday. Finding the right theme or costume for you pet is not only a way to make them look cute, it can also help you fit them into your Halloween party theme or costumes you have if you are taking them out when you Trick or Treat.

Simple Halloween costume ideas begin with what you might be wearing for this holiday and if you are throwing a Halloween party for the neighbors and friends. For every theme, there is a pet costume available that is both comfortable and very humorous, making your pet the star of the show. Most Halloween themes are generally “scary” in nature where adults dress up like witches, monsters and the like. Your pet can also participate, dressing up as everyone’s favorite vampire “Dogula” or sporting a red Devil outfit with can perfectly compliment your chosen theme.

If your theme is somewhat lighter, one interesting way to dress up your pet is to transform them into another type of animal. There are a wide variety of animal themed costumes from around the farm such as bunnies and chickens to the insects of the world such as bees, butterflies and cute ladybugs.

Looking for a more “sophisticated” look? Try dressing your pet out in a fabulous Dapper Dog costume and have Fido looking like the proverbial “dog about town” complete with top hat, tie and jacket. The Old West can also be a great theme with your doggie as the new sheriff in town, complete with hat, star, handkerchief and chaps. Even cavemen loved their pets and showing off your dog with a “cave-dog” outfit sporting a leopard-skin wrap tied off with an old bone is sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Thanks to some interesting new uses of fabrics, you can dress up your dog from a time long ago and have them stomping around the landscape wearing a dinosaur outfit which is sure to brighten up the little ones when they see your dog as a stegosaurus or raptor. Even the deep sea cannot hide the Hammerhead Shark pet costume that is both well made and may put a friendly jolt into anyone who has seen a certain shark movie recently.

Your pet’s costume can also have practical applications as well. The Dog Beer saddle features an actual saddle your dog can wear that holds up to four beverages for you and your guests to partake during the evening’s festivities.

Pet costumes can also be minimal if your pooch is not comfortable wearing a full outfit. You can choose a simple hat such as a sombrero for a south of the border feel or a mini-Leprechaun hat to top off the evening, perfect for Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day or any costume-themed event. Whatever your choices, be sure to try them on your pet well before the event so they can get used to the costume. Plus, if any problems should arise, you can make the right changes with plenty of time to spare.
