15 Hilarious Halloween Costume Ideas for Cats
Lean into the season with any of these eerie-sistible cat costumes.
They're sweet, they're sassy, they're shy, they're goofy. Cats have so much personality packed into their furry bodies, it would honestly be a shame not to dress them up for Halloween. (Hello, they could even match the family dog. Think of the photo opportunities.)
So, if you're looking for a sign to style your pet, this is it. Here are the 15 best Halloween costumes for cats that you can buy right now, plus some tips for getting the perfect fit every time.
How to Measure Cats for Costumes
Once you land on a Halloween costume, it's time to break out the soft tape measurer. Start by measuring your cat's body length, around their chest and then across their neck. The suit should be a little roomy, with enough space for two fingers.
P.S.: You should also consider how your cat moves throughout the day. If they're fairly active or can't tolerate fabric for long, then you might want to opt for Halloween accessories, like bat wings or a ruff collar.
For the cat who's just a ray of freaking sunshine (ahem), we suggest this hilarious headpiece. Bright yellow petals decorate the hood and give your grumpy cat the cheery disposition of a sunflower. We suggest pairing the costume with your own hippie or gardener outfit for maximum cuteness.
From Jurassic Park to Indiana Jones, the Halloween themes are endless with this dinosaur skeleton cat costume. Slip the T-rex skull (read: hood) over their head and secure the bones with the velcro straps. If you look closely, you'll notice that the front is equipped with LEDs that really do glow in the dark.
Who could possibly resist this candy corn cuteness? Help your kitten get in the Halloween spirit and get all the pets with this festive ruff collar. The fabric is lightweight and includes an adjustable velcro strap, so it's comfy for their usual napping and lounging.
If you're planning to be a PSL or frappuccino this year, then we say make your cat the barista. This instantly recognizable green apron fits over the neck and ties securely in the back. And yep! There's even an option for all you Dunkin lovers.
Houston, we have zero problems with this futuristic cat costume. Prepare your favorite feline for blast-off (or, you know, a trip to their food dish) with this astronaut getup. The modern space suit includes one helmet, one jetpack and two very official shoulder patches.
Oh, how the tides have turned! Play up your kitten's feisty personality (and knack for sneak attacks) with this hilarious shark hat. Sparkly fabric and a toothy grin keep the 3D design on the sweet side. If you ask us, it's perfect for a Jaws- or Baby Shark-themed group costume.
Throw it back to the vibrant days of jazzercise and parachute pants with this retro keyboard-guitarist cat costume. Tiny arms along the front give the illusion that your feline is actually playing the keyboard. We also love the matching outfit for the family dog.
Bring "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" to life in a big way this year with this classic headless rider cat costume. The black fabric wraps around your cat's middle and instantly transforms them into the specter's hair-raising steed. If you ask us, it's perfect for cats who frequently get the zoomies.
Don't be fooled by the dogs above — this is the perfect low-effort costume for cats, too. Mark your furbaby as one-of-a-kind with this Beanie Baby tag. The bright red heart secures to their collar and will ensure that they blend in with your other stuffed animals.
