There are very few things in life capable of sparking more joy than stumbling across a happy pup, fluffy kitty or floppy rabbit wearing a handcrafted Halloween costume. Create your own happiness and kick your pet’s cute factor into high gear with a Halloween costume from some creative Etsy and Amazon makers. We’ve conjured 24 festive frocks for you to shop to ensure your pet celebrates the scariest day of the year in style.

How to Measure Your Pet for Costumes

For a body costume, use a soft tape measure and jot down the measurements for your pet’s neck, chest and the distance between their neck and tail. The key to keeping your dog or cat safe is measuring loosely so they have extra room in their costume. Remember, your pet’s costume should fit a bit oversized. If you're unsure if you have the right fit, here's our go-to tip: You can rest assured that your pet is safe if you can fit the width of two fingers between their body and the collar of their costume. One finger width poses choking potential — and no holiday outfit is worth that risk. Please refer to the costume manufacturer's size chart or guide before purchasing; there is no universal sizing!

Oh, and make sure they can use the restroom in their costume. They might not mind doing their business in a flowy skirt, but we have a feeling you won’t enjoy cleaning up the mess left behind when they do.
