With so much pressure to look great at parties, Halloween shouldn’t be scary after all. There are loads of ways to dress up, even without spending thousands of dollars (or pounds!) on designer clothes. This year, wear something fun and silly instead.

Don’t let anyone tell you that dressing up has to cost a fortune. Choose something adorable or hilarious instead. No matter what size you are, there’s always going to be someone who looks better dressed up. And if you’re worried about fitting into their outfit, you’ll probably fit perfectly into yours.

The pumpkin is a great idea if your pet likes dressing up! A trick-or-treating bag full of treats helps make this costume even more fun. If your pet tends to get scared easily, look for costumes that don’t go over the ears. You could use a pillowcase or cloth stuffed with cotton balls to keep their head safe while they enjoy their treat bags. Another option is to create a mask out of material that won’t scratch the skin.

 Cat Suit

Let your cats have a chance to show off their superhero powers. Create a catsuit for your pet. First, cut out a piece of thick cloth (like canvas) and fold it in half lengthwise. Sew a series of holes along both edges, approximately 1 inch apart. Stretch the material over your kitty’s front and back limbs, forming sleeves. Sew a zipper on the side seams. Now he’s ready to go fly around and rescue the neighborhood!

 Bat Costume

If your pet loves bats, he/she might love wearing something related to them – like bat suits! Take apart a bat suit, cut away the wings, and sew a mouthpiece onto the face of your pet. Attach a cape to its body. Make sure your dog doesn’t try to eat the bat wings because they’re not real (and may hurt). Cut the legs off the suit, attach arms, and use duct tape to secure everything on your pet’s body. Use black felt, glitter glue, feathers, or anything else you think looks cool to decorate the outfit.

Get ready to scare people, especially kids. Put the spider webbing on your cats’ paws. Start by cutting pieces off a roll of duct tape and stick it onto his paws. Stick small yellow dots on each piece of tape. When you let go of the tape pull gently to stretch as much as possible. Then take a needle and thread several strands of yarn together and tie them between his toes. Use lots of different colors of yarn and make sure they are tight enough to not fall apart easily.

 Zombie Puppy

First things first, you need to find a really long leash. A 30-foot leash works well. Next, buy a bunch of blue food coloring. Dip the end of the leash in the color and drag it across the floor making a trail of dye behind you. Keep doing this until the entire area is covered in blue. Once the area is completely blue you can begin putting on accessories. Use a black marker to draw blood splatters on his forehead. Then use a brown marker to draw mustaches and eyebrows on his cheeks. Finally, draw eyes on his forehead and a bloody tooth on his lip.

 Ghostly Pet Costume

You’ll need a sheet, pillowcases, and a pair of scissors. First, cut holes at the top of the sheet for each of your pet’s eyes. Fold the sheet in half lengthwise, and fold it again widthwise three times. Finally, unfold and tuck in the end to give the sheet a little extra room for your pet to move about. Next, take two sheets of fabric, and place them right sides together. Sew across the edges and trim off the excess seam allowance. Once the two layers are sewn together, flip them right side out and open them up. Place your pet’s head inside one layer and close it up. Then do the same thing with the second piece of fabric. Now your pet has his/her own ghostly costume!

Dressing up as a penguin isn’t always considered appropriate Halloween attire, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you could actually pull off this adorable costume. Start by sewing a white fleece vest or jacket for your dog. Make sure not to leave holes in the lining of the jacket or it won’t stay on your pet’s body. Add some faux fur earmuffs and a hood before you go wild with your patterned clothing choices.

You should never leave your pet unsupervised and unattended. Always supervise your pet outside of your home or property. Remember, no matter how much fun Halloween is for people, it’s also a stressful time for pets. Be cautious around kids who are walking around the neighborhood with candy. And remember to check on your dog throughout the evening, especially if they seem agitated or uncomfortable. If your pet does experience fear and anxiety, make sure they have access to a quiet place where they feel confident.

These last-minute Halloween pet costumes will be great fun for both you and your pet. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to dress up your pet this year. Just follow these simple instructions and enjoy dressing up your pet for Halloween!
