Those of us who have pets treat them like the lovable and delightful family members that they are, so if you’re batty for Halloween, then it stands to reason that you’re absolutely beaming at the idea of dressing up your little fur child, too. So if you’re looking for some inspiration for some DIY costume projects, I’ve got everything right here!
If you have a Brussels griffon dog (or similar a looking one, like a Maltese or Yorkshire terrier) and you haven’t yet dressed them up as an ewok, then I’m sorry to say that you, sir, are failing at life. George Lucas actually created these cute little critters based on his very own Brussels griffon, so the writing’s on the wall!
It’s an oldie but a goodie! How can anyone resist the cuteness of an actual hot dog dog? And if you actually have a Dachshund (wiener dog) then I doubt you’ll be able to resist the temptation that’s practically slapping you in the face. I even found a free pattern if you want to crochet the outfit.
If I were this dog’s aunt I’d pinch those little cheeks till they turn blue! This little ballerina puppy is so cute it almost hurts. She may not be able to do a plie, but honestly, who even cares when she wears such darling little shoes?
Have a jockey but no horse? That’s ok, just use your beloved kitty instead! And if you’re the crazy cat lady in your neighborhood, get a few more jockeys and your Halloween night could just turn into a betting, racing event.
Vampire Bat Cat
I saw this too-cute-for-words bat cat quite a while ago, and I know I annoyed the hell out of my friends because I made sure that absolutely everyone close to me got to witness this masterpiece. I can hardly contain my excitement at being able to treat even more eyes to this adorable kitty!
What’s scarier than an actual spider in your house? Your usually cute and cuddly pooch dressed as a gigantic spider like something out of a horror movie. Let’s hope none of my friends see this and get any ideas… Yikes.
Not even the snakes are exempt from Halloween costumes! A slithering reptile is most certainly not my idea of a cuddly pet, but who am I to judge? I wouldn’t recommend trying a full outfit, but a sailor hat could do just fine. And a teeny tiny top hat makes him so much less menacing, don’t you think?
