Can you believe we’re only 38 days from the most awesome day of the year? Since we have a 10% off BuyCostumes.com coupon (good for orders of $50+), I’m super excited to be writing about 2 of my favorite things – pets and Halloween! Put the two together and you’ve got the cutest mix ever! I had the pleasure of perusing the BuyCostumes.com site in search of the best Halloween pet costumes. After consulting with my fellow pet owners here at FabulousSavings, here’s what we’ve come up with:
1. The Cat in the Hat Costume:
Sure, the original wearer was of the feline species, but this dog looks so adorable in his top hat and suit that I think even Dr. Seuss would approve! If you do decide on this outfit, make sure to keep poochie away from the fish bowl and no matter what – do not let Thing 1 and Thing 2 out of their box!
2. Zelda Cave Dog Costume:
If you want a funny Halloween pet costume, consider this hilarious caveman get-up, complete with animal-print shirt & spiky long black wig. Not a fan of the stone ages? You can always accessorize with a spiked collar for a heavy-metal-roadie-circa-1985 look!
3. Rock Star Pet Costume:
This is a personal favorite of mine. There’s something about seeing someone (man or dog) in a 1970′s rhinestone cape that makes me giggle. Don’t forget to pop that collar for a truly authentic Elvis look!
4. Big Daddy Dog Costume:
Watch Butch cruise the hood in this two-piece vest and hat combo in cool pimpin’ style! “Who’s your doggie?” (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)
5. Batman Brave and the Bold Costume:
Show off your little superhero this Halloween! This lightweight, pooch-sized Batman costume includes a chest piece with attached cape and matching headpiece.
6. Princess Leia Costume:
Here’s a costume that’s out of this world! The whole galaxy will admire your furry little princess in her side bun hairpiece and white robe. Make it a theme and choose from one of the adult Star Wars costumes (I’m thinking Obi Wan Kenobi hanging with a hologram-sized Princess L?)
7. Shrek Costume:
Why not celebrate your favorite green ogre this year? Dress your puppy in a miniature Shrek jumpsuit and character headpiece that are sure to cause shrieks of delight!
8. Wizard of Oz Dorothy Costume:
First, I’d like to apologize to Toto for the apparent role reversal going on here! The best thing about this outfit is a simple alteration gives your pet a brand new look for next year. Just tie up the front of the dress and voila – it’s Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island!
9. Frog Prince Costume:
Want unique pet costumes? Heads will turn towards your regal-looking bud in his hooded top with attached collar, cape and crown. Who could deny this prince a few kisses/licks? Just don’t expect anything magical to happen, ’cause, you know, it’s just a fairytale!
10. Bumble Bee Pet Costume:
How precious is this? For a total Halloween party buzz, dress your fuzzy friend in this cute striped dress with black wings. Can you say “Awwww”?
Now, if you’re a cat person like many of us here at FS, not to worry – many of the smaller outfits can also fit your favourite feline. Although I can’t guarantee his or her approval in the matter!
