If you think that Halloween is only for humans, think again. Halloween costumes can be worn not only by you and your children but your dogs, too. And when it comes to Halloween costumes, wearing those along with your dogs is definitely a perfect combination. Just imagine yourself wearing a traditional Death costume with your ever-loyal dog posing as the Grim (Big Black Dog) will definitely give you the first place in the Halloween costume party.
Unlike traditional Halloween costumes, you can also make your dog’s costumes cute. Instead of making your dog wear something with horror content, you can also make your dog look cute. Listed below are some of the costumes that you can easily do yourself:
- Dinosaur-Dragon Dog Hoodie Costume – You can easily make your dog look like a sweet-looking dinosaur or dragon by making him or her wear a hoodie with pieces of cardboard or construction paper for spikes or dorsal fins. If you want something lighter materials that last longer, you can use felt fabric instead.
- Cupcake Dog Costume – You can make your dog look cute and delicious at the same time by making him or her wear a cupcake costume. Make sure, though, that you only use felt fabric and paper mache box in order for the costume to stay lightweight.
- Wolf Granny Disguise Dog Costume – You can easily relive the classic Little Red Riding Hood by making your dog wear the famous Wolf ‘Granny’ disguise costume. Make your dog wear a shower cap covered with some cotton balls, checkered fabric for mantle and your Halloween trick is set.
- Bunny Dog Costume – What is cuter other than a bunny costume? Definitely none. If you think that bunny costumes are just for Easter, you are greatly mistaken. Make your dog wear one and your Halloween will still turn out great.
- Piñata Dog Costume – Since you’ll be giving out candies for Trick or Treat, why don’t you disguise your dog as a piñata (Spanish word for candy) at the same time? This costume only requires you to have little or no crafting skills, an old dog sweater, bright strips of crepe paper and some hot glue to put those in. However, you need at least a half day to make this so you must prepare this one before Halloween comes.
- Paint as Dog Costume – If you feel rather artistic, you can turn your dog into a skeleton or something by using non-toxic or vegetable-based paint. In this way, you are assured that your dog won’t be harmed even if he or she decides to lick the paint.
