Dress Up With Your Pet For Halloween! The 2023 Edition

Dress Up With Your Pet For Halloween! The 2023 Edition

There's Halloween costumes. There's pet HALLOWEEN costumes. And then there's dressing up WITH your dog for Halloween. Pure magic!

Dressing your pets in costume this year is a big deal. In fact, an estimated 31 million people will be doing just that, and spending approximately $480 million while they do it. This trend is growing in popularity: people want their pets to have the same magical, creative experience that they experience themselves on Halloween night.

But dressing up with your pets takes this concept one step further. It takes a "family approach" to the holiday (and adds a whole new level of fun). If you're considering this approach, first consider what your dog thinks about clothing.

Do they think it's cozy...or will a costume even survive the night, and instead get treated like a chew toy or torture device? If your dog hates clothes, this may not be for you. And, even if your pets are fashionistas, keeping it simple is probably best.

Wayne's World

The resemblance here is uncanny! And we just have to comment on the sheer size of this adorable Irish Wolfhound. We found this Wayne's World matching costume on Reddit and think it can be easily assembled as long as you can find a cool guitar to go with it!


Up, Up and Away!

Hot Dog Vendor

This one is super obvious.  Dressing up your dog like a hot dog is classic.  With the addition of the hot dog vendor, complete with the box of goodies, this costume is exceptional.  And the instructions are fantastic.
