In all the excitement surrounding creative Halloween costume ideas, people often forget that there’s a whole other world of costumes that can be forgotten – pet costumes. If a pet’s Halloween costume is both creative and comfortable for our animal friends to wear, both our four-legged friends and we can enjoy the Halloween ideas that we had in mind.

The ways in which these pet owners have approached decking out their animals are as diverse as the pets and the animal owners themselves. Some matched the pets to funny costumes based on the color of their pets’ skin or fur, while others made them resemble pop culture characters that were based on their species in the first place.

When designing pet Halloween costumes, it’s important to ensure that it is comfortable and/or unobtrusive for the animal to wear. Otherwise, the pet will probably do whatever it can to destroy the costume, and neither you nor the animal will have a good time. The animals in these pictures seem like they aren’t bothered too much by these Halloween costumes for pets, making them seem even funnier (or more fearsome).
