If you have a pet that will cooperate with a game of dress-up, here are the top 10 most popular costumes this year based on what’s trending. Come on! Every dog mama and papa will be dressing their pups up for those canine selfies, online photo contests and social media! This is premium time for showing off (wo)man’s best friend dressed up in crazy and often hilarious costumes. Put all the other dog owners to shame with an amazing costume that will make your pup go viral.
Jurassic World was a hit so you know there are going to be lots of dogs running around in prehistoric Halloween costumes! Animal Planet offers us a genuine, learning-experience with the Raptor Dog Costume. This Raptor’s tiny arms wave uselessly in front of him, while sharp teeth frame a precious doggy face, and the raptor’s jaunty tail flips up in the rear. Natural history in motion.
Divas may be a dime a dozen, but the Pup-a-Razzi line of doggy costumes leaves the competition in the dust with this Katy Perry Roar (or Ruff) dog costume. Complete with fake cleavage, revealing jungle mini-dress and over-the-top fashion wig, your good little girl will be a jaw-dropping diva and attract her own dog bone daddy in no time!
The Force is going to awaken in your pup with this Star Wars costume. With a new film coming out, you can wave your nerd-banners high with this great Bantha costume (a kind of wooley mammoth from outer space) complete with a Tusken Raider riding on top and that Raider looks ready for battle… or dog bones.
What fairy-tale-lover could resist this fetching ensemble? Little Red Riding Hood. With just a cloak and bloomers, your little (or big) girl is ready to take on the big, bad wolf and rake in the treats!
Unleash the beast within with this easy to wear, yet very simple lion costume.
This cowboy costume is doggone funny. A weathered cowboy hoists his hat in the air as he rides his noble steed. Your little bronco would be the best-in-show at the Halloween rodeo!
Sometimes less is more. This shark fin fis tearing up Shark Week and beyond, plus and it’s pretty simple, not a lot of complicated gear to annoy your pup or make it hard to walk around. Get them while they last! I did.
Now you Walking Dead fans can shuffle along with your own furry little “walker” right by your side! Creepy, exposed brain cap and a tunic that features ultra-gross, decomposing flesh and exposed ribs!
BAM! There is no school like the old school with a comeback. As you know the new Ghostbusters movie remake starring Kristen Wigg, Melissa McCarthy and others is coming out in 2016 but this costume is flying off of shelves now! I ain’t afraid of no ghost dog!
