Now that it's officially October, everyone's in full-fledged Halloween mode. It's time to pull your decorations out of storage, pick out your pumpkins, and — the most exciting part — plan what your entire family will wear. This year, you'll be particularly impressed with the selection of costumes for your furriest family members, who obviously deserve the best of the best. These are 15 unique dog and cat costumes on Amazon, because your beloved pet is just waiting to stand out.
One thing I've discovered when shopping for pet costumes (yes, I've purchased quite a few in my day) is that the sizes are all over the place. My 20-pound terrier is a small in some brands and a large in others. I thought women had a tough time nailing down which size works best for them, but outfitting your turns out to be even harder. I'd suggest taking measurements of your dog or cat before costume shopping: their height, length, stomach girth, and neck girth, specifically. When you find a costume you like, make sure to check and double check the size chart to ensure you're picking the right one.
The following is a round-up of the most original, hilarious pet costumes on Amazon. I'd suggest to pick yours up sooner rather than later (even if you have Prime). If others love them as much as I do... they'll go fast!
1. California Costumes UPS Pal Pet Costume
California Costumes UPS Pal Pet Costume
Hello, did you order the cutest package in the world? This UPS worker costume goes on your pet's front legs and wraps around their neck, so their movement won't feel too restricted. The little box is held by velcro, and the visor has an elastic strap to go under the chin. Neighborhood pups are gonna bend and snap when they see your delivery pup coming.
2. Meeyou Cowboy Pet Costume for Cat & Dog
Meeyou Cowboy Pet Costume for Cat & Dog
Personally, I find nothing funnier than the costumes that make it appear like your pet is standing upright. The one-piece cowboy costume goes on your pet's front legs and wraps around their neck. The costume is even better if your fur baby looks as grumpy as the cat pictured. I wouldn't mess with that sheriff!
3. California Costumes Holy Hound Dog Costume
4. Delifur Cowboy Rider Costume
5. Prymal Comfort Trump Cat Costume
Prymal Comfort Trump Cat Costume
Whether meant to be honoring or terrifying, this Donald Trump costume will get plenty of laughs. This comes with the neck tie and wig, which attaches with an elastic band under the chin. I'd suggest only getting this costume if your dog or cat is easygoing enough to put up with the elastic – after all, the wig is the most important part.
6. FanQube Fancy Guitar Player Costume for Dogs & Cats
7. Rubie's Ghostbusters Movie Pet Costume
8. Mikayoo Doctor Costume For Cats & Dogs
9. Rubie's Ariel Pet Costume
10. UHeng Funny Pet Pumpkin Costume
UHeng Funny Pet Pumpkin Costume
OK I lied, not all pumpkin costumes are outlawed this year. This pumpkin-carrying costume definitely deserves a place on this list. This is a full-on get-up that covers all of your pet's four legs and hooks under their belly. The entire thing is made of a velvet material, so hopefully it's soft enough that your pet won't mind it.
