We’ve got 40 totally adorable, simply irresistible DIY pet costume ideas here for Halloween, just for you (and your pet of course). If this is your first Halloween with your pet, you can feel confident that you’ll find a great costume that they will love – and that you can share all over your favorite social media channels! If you’ve been DIY-ing for awhile, well, we’ve found you some pretty unique Halloween costumes to admire to gather inspiration from.
One of the most important things you need to think of before you start dressing your pet up for Halloween – is actually about your pet’s comfort in wearing the costume. Any costume you DIY for them should be comfortable. You want to make sure that your pet can easily see out the front, that their view is not blocked by anything as they may find that frustrating or even a bit overwhelming.
You also want to check that the DIY costume is not scratchy, itchy or otherwise bothersome to wear. Remember that your dog, cat or other type of pet is unable to speak up and tell you what’s wrong. You don’t want them to get grouchy and to take out their frustration by biting at someone they meet while out on Halloween. Equally important you’ll want to see that their costume is not too tight or too loose in any places so it can’t drag along the ground and trip them or make it in any way uncomfortable for them to move.
Yes, it sounds like we are creating an awful lot of ground rules for you – but remember that this is as if you are creating baby clothes. A baby is vulnerable and cannot speak, just like your pet. So it is important that you take the time and have the patience to plan out their costume with their comfort in mind. We have all seen irritated pets in Halloween costumes – and we guarantee that you want your pet to be happy wearing it!
Check out the classic and totally unique costumes, we know you’ll find something terrific, just in time for Halloween. Happy DIY-ing!
