I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing my guys twist around in their ill-fitting Halloween suits, hats, and boots. How goofy they look, even if they're supposed to look somewhat realistic.
So I decided that this year, I'm just going to focus on one-item costumes that are easy to put on and easy for our pets to keep on.
With that in mind, I looked toward the trends. Bat costumes are really hot this year; I found at least two dozen bat costumes for pets on Amazon. They are really cute. Spider costumes are a close second. Animal wigs are always fun and they tend to stay put where they're put. And fancy crowns are all decked out for this Halloween. Here's what's hot!
First come the chiropterans!
Highly rated, the Legendog Bat Wings Halloween Pet Costume is a one-size fits most bat costume. You can order it with pumpkin bells (above), a white glow-in-the-dark charm, or a big orange party-ribbon and bell (below) attached to the Velcro® collar.
These bat wings come in one size and that's small - appropriate for a cat or dog or pig under 10 pounds....
... or check out the dimensions (below) of the Bat Wings and measure your pet to see if the costume will fit.
Not to be forgotten, RYPET makes bat wings for larger pets, even dogs as big as this guy above.... But check the measuring chart to make sure. It's always easier to measure first than to return the costume and have to wait for another one to be delivered.
You'll find that there are two Velcro straps on the RYPET Dog Bat Costume, one around the neck and the other around the chest, to insure stability on a larger dog.
Don't leave your rabbit out of a Halloween celebration, not with this adorable Bat Wing costume available for her. This one even comes with a leash (not that she'd want to run away all decked up like this!).
You can also use the Vehomy Small Animal Pet Bat Wings for tea cup dogs, puppies or kittens, but like always, measure, measure, measure!
The Vehomy Small Animal Pet Bat Wings has two Velcro straps, one at the neck area and the other for the tummy area.
Do big black spiders scare you? I might keep this cat away from the door on Halloween night unless you want a lot of scared-stiff kids at your door.
A felt back and eight very hairy, supple legs affix on your cat or dog around the neck and chest.
The Small size measurement ranges are: chest girth = 12.6 inches-16.5 inches, neck girth = 7.9 inches-12.6 inches.
The Medium size measurement ranges are: chest girth = 15.7 inches-21.7 inches, neck girth = 11.8 inches-15.7 inches.
(If you want to go all out on a full body spider costume for your pet, check this one out.
This new Spider Hat from IPOW has a 100 percent 5-star reviews, and you can see why! What a pretty hat!
This hat looks like a combination witch and spider hat, but it certainly makes the spider part look scary, as well as pretty. The hat is affixed with a light rope lanyard that goes under your pet's mouth at the neck area, and there is a pulley closure to adjust it. The white LED flashing light is on the pulley to warn away potential prey at night!
There's a saying that inside every cat is a lion. Watch your cat's stride, how she hunts, her play style.... and if you've ever been to a zoo or seen a lion in a movie, you will see your own cat's behavior. I know my cat believes he is a lion!
So the Onmygogo Lion Mane Wig is perfect for cats. (And it fits small dogs too!) You can purchase a Lion Mane in a color that matches your cat or dog: Black, seen above, or Melange Brown, or White!
Onmygogo Lion Mane Wig for Cats and Dogs (Melange Brown)
These wigs are really easy to put on and fix just the way you want them to look! They are lined with smooth materials for your pet's comfort.
There are two things you need to do before purchasing this plush wig for your cat: 1) Measure your cat (or dog) to get the size right....
... and 2) train your cat to wear it. As cute as it is, as well as it fits, as much as kitty's owners love it, the Onmygogo Lion Mane Wig for Cats and Small Dogs may not be your cat's favorite adornment!
These highly-rated farm animal costumes are for medium and large dogs. They are lined with smooth material and are easy to put on and fasten.
Sheep costume for dogs
Moose costume for dogs
Bull costume for dogs
Again, make sure you get the sizing right!
There are tons of pet Halloween costumes on Amazon.com, but I'm partial to those that are not only adorable, but fuss-free, and washable for use on your pet's next fancy dress appearance. Simple is good for both of you!
That's the bats for today!
