If you’re reading this, chances are you already know the appeal of dressing up pets—Halloween or not—from stylish leashes, collars, and harnesses to the more elaborate bandanas, shirts, and even boots. But what if we tell you that dressing up your pet this year has the potential to be twice as appealing? Hear us out: dress up with them. A matchy-matchy look is sure to wow the crowd, plus it makes a great bonding moment for you and your furry friend! Start scrolling for 13 costume ideas that are fun or spooky-chic, but all very easy to pull off. 



‘California Gurls’ Katy Perry

Who can ever forget the cavity-inducing fantasy world from Katy Perry’s California Gurls music video? Take inspiration from this pop-funk bop and throw on a blue wig and cupcake bra on your pet and on yourself. This costume is perfect if you’re feeling a little flirty, and if you’ve just dyed your hair the same iconic shade of blue. 



‘Deja Vu’ Olivia Rodrigo

As if you and your furry Rodrigo fan need one more reason to have your own Gen-Z superstar moment. Scour your closet for matching silk headscarves, white tops, and vintage-looking sunglasses. It also won’t hurt to have a quick vocal warm up with your pet, just in case you’re asked to perform a few lines. 


‘Rain on Me’ Ariana Grande

If your pet isn’t a fan of flaunting full costumes, consider this laidback but just-as-glam costume idea. For your pet: a bejeweled skirt or tutu. For you: a blingy mask, a couple of iridescent eyeshadow options, and a high pony à la Ariana Grande. 

Players from ‘Squid Game’

Ride the wave and dress as the players from the latest Netflix hit, Squid Game. Pair a green tracksuit with a white shirt and glue numbers on your clothes. Bonus if you and your pet get some fake blood on your tracksuits!


Breakfast at Tiffany’s 

Looking for the perfect occasion to show off your LBD? Then you’ll love this costume idea: go classic Audrey with a little black dress, some pearls, cat-eye sunglasses, and a sparkly tiara. Your pet can go as your little croissant: if it’s small enough, you can put the lower half of your pet’s body in a regular brown paper bag, however feel free to DIY a paper bag using cardboard to fit a larger pet. C’est magnifique!

Soap and Loofa

Giving new meaning to bath time, this costume turns your pet into an extra large loofah. Bunch up tulle in the color of your choice and glue it onto one of your pet’s fitted shirts. Add a rope loop to complete your pet’s paw-some look. For your costume, cut out letters from paper or cardboard to spell ‘soap’ (or Fetch if you’re feeling extra) and glue them on a white shirt. Add white balloons all over your shirt for a sudsy bubbles effect. 

Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf

Look like you stepped straight out of a children’s storybook. Recreate the characters by wearing a red dress and a matching hooded cape as Little Red Riding Hood and preparing a shower cap (covered with cotton balls), a fluffy white sweater, and a pair of grandma glasses for your pet to go as Big Bad Wolf. 

Before you start crafting, remember to never leave your pet in a costume unsupervised. Be sure to use only soft, lightweight materials that won’t constrict movement or obstruct your pet’s vision, hearing, or ability to breathe or bark, and you’re sure to have a happy night of fright, paws down. Happy Halloween!
