Dress kitty in a pink tutu, your pug in a Men in Black costume, or a Pirates of the Caribbean costume. One of the fastest growing Halloween markets is for pet costumes. Owners love to dress their pets up, and not just for trick or treat. Who says only kids dress up for Halloween?
Although the internet and pet stores are loaded with Halloween costumes for dogs, it's a little harder to find costumes for cats. Maybe it's because cats are finicky and stubborn. Some dogs seem to tolerate being dressed up in frilly tutus with masks and hats. Either way, there isn't a whole lot out there for cats. Petsmart has about 12 cat costumes, including clowns, witches, mouse and cowboys. Amazon.com has a handful, and online markets have a few here and there.
Amazon.com and Ebay have some of the largest selections of dog costumes and accessories. Some costumes are adorable, and others are downright ugly. Prices are reasonable, and they have most costumes in stock. Choose from pirates, Jack Sparrow, Zelda, cheerleaders, bumble bee, Star Wars Yoda, Dogzilla and Pepe Le Pew Skunk among others.
Halloween costumes for pets range from just a few dollars to $29.99 and up, all depending on how simple or elaborate they are. Pet stores like Petsmart and Petco sell costumes online or in the store. Walmart sells pet costumes online. Target and Toys"R"Us have loads of dog costumes, but they're not available in all stores. Call your local store for inventory information.
Make sure to stick some reflective tape on Fluffy and Fido's costumes if you take them trick or treating after dark.
