This Creepy Spider Costume Might Scare the Neighbors
Why your dog needs this costume: If someone's not expecting it, a giant, fluffy spider will turn some heads for sure.
Which breed wears it best: Black pugs
Review: "So freaking cute! I did doctor mine up a bit because I understand that they don't always put enough filling in these. I opened up a seam on the legs and stuffed with more filling and did the same for the head. Also, I put a snap on the chin strap as these are always large on my little guys. The end result ... so CUTE! Even without changes it is so cute- and it’s even better when they walk around." —Devin

Getting Chased by Dinosaurs Is Just What the Mailman Needs
Why your dog needs this costume: Come on, imagine a big, goofy stegosaurus running to the door. It's funny, right? Especially when the dinosaur starts wagging its tail.
Which breed wears it best: All of them. This costume's just plain brilliant no matter what kind of dog wears it.
Review: "I bought this for my 50lb pit mix last Halloween. Several reviews said to size up, so I got an XXL which is way too long (it hung off her tail) so we had to pin it. Stick to your measurements. This suit doesn't stretch, so keep that in mind. I know that if I had ordered the right size it would have fit perfectly. Either way, I am impressed with this costume (it is as ridiculous looking as you would expect it to be) and will reorder this year with the correct size. Much better quality than I expected for 25 bucks!" —Pants

A Dog Cow Costume That's Udderly Adorable
Why your dog needs this costume: A dog with udders is so funny, anyone who sees it will be moooo-ved to tears.
Which breed wears it best: Large, white dogs like standard poodles and Samoyeds. Or, even better, a dalmatian.
Review: "This costume is SO stinking cute. It fits my treeing walker coonhound super well. She’s about 47 pounds and we got an XL. I like that it came in three parts, especially the head piece, because I knew she wouldn’t tolerate that for long whereas the body is fine. For the price, the quality is fine and she’s only going to wear it a couple times a year. No regrets buying this." —cowcostume

Review: "This costume has brought so much joy to so many people since it was delivered this morning. We took Sebastian for a walk in his bee costume. He delighted the neighbor, the neighborhood kids, people driving by, and, most importantly, the mailman (they have a somewhat contentious relationship). 10/10 would buy again." —EliandCLoud

Review: "Great for our husky! Pretty good quality! The Velcro comes with a backing on the grip side so it doesn't catch on the fabric ... All those 'Velcro doesn't stick' reviews neglected to take the backing off. Velcro works great, would buy this again if we get another dog." —Solana98472

Review: "We didn’t stop laughing for 10 minutes. This costume is hysterical. Easy to put on too. The shell part seems pretty secure, the googly eyes might not stay on for as long but so far so good. Not like we expect our dog to wear it for hours on end, but we can’t wait to parade our dog around as a snail." —RB2020

Roar! Uh, I Mean Ruff?
Why your dog needs this costume: If we had to pick just one dog costume to buy for a large dog, it would be this one. It's amazing how a mane and a tail can transform a happy-go-lucky pooch into a ferocious predator. Sort of.
Which breed wears it best: Golden retrievers and yellow labs
Review: "This has been my all-time favorite Amazon purchase thus far. Whoever came up with this is a genius! It arrived quickly and in good condition. It was easy to put on, easy to tighten without harm and it even came with a little tuft for the tail! (My dog only has a nub, so I didn't use that part). The mane bugged her a bit at first, but she got used to it really quickly and soon became the center of attention :) This thing is amazing. BUY IT!" —Kenzi

Review: "Found a pug at the end of this rainbow. I bought size large for our 35-40 pound Pug mix Shooter Jennings and it looks so cute on him. It would fit a much bigger dog as well cause straps have lots of room to make it bigger." —Higgens714

A Dog Dressed in a Pope Costume Is Controversial, Yet Funny

Which breed wears it best: Small, white dog breeds, like Malteses and Westies.
Review: "I love it! And apparently, I'm not the only one. It is the top costume for dogs this year. Easy to put on, and it is lightweight. You will get massive compliments. However, some religious people might accuse you of disrespect and blasphemy. My response has been to tell them to close their eyes. Of course, taking a picture of my pup in costume in front of a church wasn't one of my better ideas." —Toni A. Campbell

A Dog Vampire Costume. Fangs Not Included.
Why your dog needs this costume: Lots of dogs dislike wearing hats or hoods. With this vampire costume for dogs, it's a non-issue. It's just a cape, and it secures around the middle so it won't fall off while they're hunting their prey (i.e., whatever snacks you spill on the floor).

Review: "This is so perfect, lightweight and super silky so it's not uncomfortable for my dog. I have a 40ish lbs pup and bought the xl/xxl and it's roomy but not oversized, the velcro straps allow for a little adjusting with size. I could have sized down and it still would have fit him great.
