#3 Get the IT Look With This Eerie Costume

There’s no doubt that the sewer scene in Stephen King’s IT is one of the most blood-curdling scenes in the movie, so this IT-themed costume will give a similar chilling effect. You’ll need a yellow raincoat for your pet to recreate this look. Add a red balloon, and voila, you’re done! 

Level up your costume game with the Pennywise costume from Spotlight. The mask and shirt are included, so you won’t need to worry about painting your face. Careful, you may spook yourself out with how accurate this looks!

If scary pet costumes aren’t your thing, try dressing your dog up by their personality instead. 

The Teddy Dog Costume from Petbarn is made for pups who are cuddle monsters. Not only does this costume give the illusion of a bear, but its soft fur will have you petting your dog all day long. Plus, it’s suitable for both cats and dogs. 

Does your pup love to snuggle up with you on the couch while watching sports? If yes, then dress your dog up in your favourite football jersey from Pet Circle and show off your team spirit! 

Recreate The Little Mermaid’s ‘under the sea’ scene with this adorable octopus costume from Alli Express. Grab the Halloween Lobster piece from PetBarn for your other fur kid for the ultimate ‘under the sea’ squad.

It wouldn’t be Halloween without dressing your pet in a fang-tastic vampire costume. In Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Count Dracula has a sidekick named Reinfield, so this costume idea is perfect for two pets. For the ultimate look, grab your vampire and pumpkin costume from LightIntheBox. Renfield was known for being a little odd and frantically devoted to Dracula, so if one of your youngest pups worships their older sibling, then they’ll truly capture the on-screen duo’s energy. 

#7 A Lion Costume For a Roar-some Halloween

Let your pup be the king with this Lion Jumpsuit from Doggytopia. Made from faux fur, this costume comes with a lion mane hood and a cute tail for scaring the evil ghosts away. Opt for the Lion Mane Dog Costume from Doggytopia if you have a larger dog. If you have more than one pet, both of these costumes would be ideal for recreating Simba and Mufassa from the Lion King.

#8 Turn Your Snack Thief Into a Cookie Monster
