Get Ready, Get Set with Halloween Costumes for Your Pet

This month on the Liv Avenida Blog we’ve been focusing on pets, and even though it’s still September, we thought it would be fun to share ideas for Halloween costumes for pets — doing it now will give you plenty of time to come up with the perfect costume for your furry friend. Here are four ideas to get you thinking. 

Beanie Baby Pet

This costume is super simple, smart, and sweet! Throw it back to your childhood this Halloween by cuddling up with your favorite life-size beanie baby. Just fold up some cardboard, cut out a heart shape, and paste some colored paper cutouts to form the classic tag. Tie it to your pet’s collar or tie a makeshift collar around their neck to secure it.

Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf

You don’t even need a person for this couple’s costume. Whether you or a little one dress up as Red Riding Hood, your dog is the perfect companion for this look. All you’ll need is an old T-shirt (the person who did this idea used a purple color scheme), some old glasses with a glasses rope, and a shower cap to make this costume.

Unicorn Pet

Your pet can look and feel as mystical and magical as a unicorn by dressing up as one. The Live Colorful blog has a great tutorial with the rundown on all the supplies you’ll need for this fantastic costume.

UPS Delivery Driver

This great costume from Chewy California Costumes is perfect for any of you who do not sew. If you’re taking your pup along for any trick-or-treating you or your kids will be doing, this will be a delightful guest at anyone’s door.

You can probably find nearly everything you need for a pet costume right in your apartment. Let your pet be a part of this special holiday by dressing them up for the big day. Then, make your way over to your favorite Chandler, Arizona pet park to show off just how good they look to all their friends.
