Friends of Fido Present 26 Howl-o-ween Costume Ideas

Posted by Lauren Barker

We asked our followers on Facebook to send us photos of their pets' spooky, funny and fur-ocious Halloween costumes, and the results had our tails wagging! We’ve picked out a few to share in case Fido is still trying to decide on this year’s getup.

With Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping, it’s not too late to be every dog’s favorite delivery driver. Order a UPS, DHL or USPS costume for your pup. Friend or foe, Fido will impress his most frequent visitor with his matching uniform.

There’s something deliciously cute about food costumes. Dress your French Bulldog as French toast, your Italian Greyhound as a slice of pizza, or your Golden Retriever as …

a pineapple? We didn’t say it had to make sense.

Every dog wants to be treated like a celebrity. Your pup can be his favorite musician, athlete, movie star ...

Television characters are always a hit …

Movie villains are fun, too.

However, sometimes the cutest costumes are traditional Halloween favorites. Dress up your little pumpkin, spooky witch or hairy werewolf.

Of course, your outfit doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive.

Costumes that make your pup appear to be walking on two legs are sure to evoke laughter. Fido can be a walking teddy bear, penguin or a guitar player.

Superhero costumes are always life-savers! You can create your own with just a few supplies, or you can buy one here.

The magic happens when you get creative. Your pup can be anything she wants to be with just a little imagination.

You can also make Halloween a team event. Dress up your whole gang, or grab some friends and trick-or-treat together. Your furry crew can follow the yellow brick road …

attend Pawgwarts …

or just be a humble lobster fisherman with his catch.

You can even dress alike.

This year, the lion’s mane is all the rage.

But if Fido prefers a less popular African beast, the Zebra is always a fine choice. Try pet-safe Warren London Critter Color to give your pet’s coat a temporary dye.

Go with what you already have. Your stylish pooch may already have something in his wardrobe.

Even if it’s a little bit tacky (Mom's words, not ours!).

Or maybe your pup is lucky enough to already resemble a handsome Brad Pitt, no costume required (and no questions asked).

Thanks to all our readers for submitting their pup’s howlingly fun costume pics!
