Couples costumes are out, and matching pet and owner costumes are in.
This year, multiple retailers are selling two-part costumes that can only be completed by a pet owner and their furry friend. Disney duos are especially popular, as are characters from films like “It” and “Legally Blonde.” Of course, many Halloween costumes for pets are catered towards dogs, but a few cat options are on the market as well.
From superhero teams to scary clowns, here are 10 costume ideas for you and your pet to match on Halloween.
Celebrity Beauty: While Elle Woods is technically the star of “Legally Blonde,” her Chihuahua named Bruiser steals the show.
And luckily for fans, HalloweenCostumes.com is now selling a pink Bruiser-inspired suit that’s perfect for small dogs.
When paired with someone dressed as Elle Woods, pets and their owners will look just like the beloved movie characters.
Celebrity Beauty: You can match with your pet and still look scary on Halloween.
“It: Chapter 2” was released in early September, so it’s likely that characters from the film will become popular Halloween costumes this year.
But if your friends don’t want to dress up with you, consider your dog. Party City is now selling a two-piece costume that includes a Georgie outfit for you and a Pennywise shirt and wig for your pup.
Celebrity Beauty: Dogs aren’t the only pets who can dress up on Halloween — cat costumes also exist.
Etsy, for example, offers hundreds of cat costumes, including this Batman suit designed by a shop called Baju Kucing Tangerang.
While the retailer doesn’t make a matching costume for humans, any Robin-inspired outfit will do.
Celebrity Beauty: “Scooby Doo” characters are an easy costume option when you already own a dog.
Of course, your dog doesn’t have to look like Scooby.
Party City currently sells “Scooby Doo” costume sets comprised of a costume for adults — you can choose between Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Fred — and another for dogs that transform them into the beloved cartoon character.
Celebrity Beauty: For cats who won’t wear a full costume, try a simple hat.
Little Red Riding Hood’s cape, for example, makes for a Halloween costume that’s both adorable and easy to wear.
Pet owners can purchase the knitted costume from an Etsy shop called CatsInHatsShop, and complete the look by dressing like another character from the fairytale.
Celebrity Beauty: Hot dogs are a classic pet costume — but pet owners can now get in on the fun, too.
No hot dog is complete without ketchup and mustard, and the same goes for costumes inspired by the snack. Party City is now selling a matching set that includes a ketchup suit for you, and a hot-dog outfit for your pup.
Celebrity Beauty: Christmas-themed costumes are always popular on Halloween.
Whether you’re dressing as Santa Claus or an elf this Halloween, there’s no need to ask a friend to wear a reindeer costume.
On HalloweenCostumes.com, pet owners can now purchase a harness and hat that will transform any dog into the magical creature.
Celebrity Beauty: “Star Wars” fans will love this Ewok costume.
ShopDisney’s version of the outfit is comprised of a bodysuit and headpiece. Multiple sizes are sold for a wide range of dogs.
Arguably the best part about this costume, however, is that “Star Wars” fans can match their pets by dressing as just about any other character from the film franchise.
Cost: $22.95 to $26.95
