Creative Halloween Costumes For Dog Lovers
Thinking of bringing any four-legged friends along for the festivities this Halloween? Want to really impress the neighbourhood with a clever costume? If so, then there are plenty of Halloween costumes that can make you and your canine companions really stand out this year. Whether you’re looking for a pre-made costume, or you’d like to create your own, there are lots of options to choose from.
When buying pet-sized costumes, the most important thing is comfort. If your dog is already accustomed to dressing up in extra layers, then they’re more likely to be comfortable in the costume you’ve selected for them. So before you go shopping for small dog Halloween costumes, it’s important to make sure your pet is comfortable being fitted in clothing. This will give you an idea of exactly how much clothing your dog will tolerate, and ensure they enjoy the holiday festivities as much as you do.
If you’re stuck on ideas for how to dress your dog, or you’re not sure where to look for pet Halloween costumes, why not consider going out as a pair? Start by thinking of ideas for your own costume, and see which ones might suit your furry companion as well. If you’re still stuck, here are a few ideas to get you started:
Here comes the Groom
Who would make a better ‘best man’ than man’s best friend? Think about taking your dog out in style by getting them a tuxedo. This is a great place to start, as there are several other characters you could create from it; all you have to do is find a canine clothesline that sells wedding attire. For James Bond fans, consider spending the evening with your very own agent “00K-9”. Always wanted to dress up as Sailor Moon? Add a cape and mask, and Tuxedo Mask is at your side. Some companies can also have your dog-sized tuxedo made custom styles and colours, so think about dressing them up in a suave blue tux and take them out on a retro prom date!
Batman and Robin
When it comes to creating a great costume, recognition is a very important factor, so who better than Batman and the boy wonder to get noticed at this year’s event? Finding a Batman or Batwoman costume for yourself is easy enough, as any costume shop is bound to have one. When it comes to looking for dog or puppy Halloween costumes however, you might have to look a little harder. The internet is a great resource if you really want to find the right costume, but the great thing about a character like Robin is that his look is easy to achieve on your own. Try using red and green clothing, with a black and yellow cape. When people see the two of you together, they’ll instantly recognize him or her as your sidekick.
Dog’s Best Friend?
Why not try the old ‘switcheroo’ this year? If you plan on taking your dog along with you, then switching roles is sure to get a laugh. All you have to do is find some suitable ‘human’ looking clothes for your dog, and a furry dog costume for yourself! The closer your costume looks to your dog, and likewise the closer your dog’s clothing matches your style, the more your costume is sure to impress and entertain your friends.
There are bound to be plenty of great Halloween costumes for dog owners to show off this year, so why not give it a try? So long as the cost is affordable, and the costume is comfortable, then including your dog in the holiday fun is a great way for animal lovers to spend time with their pets. Just don’t let them eat all the candy!
