Halloween has always been a fun time for me to dress my dog up, and I know I'm not alone.

Whether it's cats, dogs, or any other furry animal (even feathery ones!), a lot of pet owners out there love dressing up their animal children for special occasions. Many of us are familiar with the same old costumes at Target, Petsmart, and Petco like the unicorn costume I have for Jaq Jaq above, but wouldn't it be nice if we could draw inspiration elsewhere? Yea, it would be (and it's possible).

I looked at Amazon and Etsy to search for Halloween costume ideas for dogs. Some of them would be easy to make yourself, borrow from other pet owners, or even shave your dog (for the lion look, in particular). Flip through the gallery below to see some dog costume ideas I came across. 

Costumes shown above come from Etsy users PetitDogApparel, LogesandLily, meowadays, LOKOPetApparel, Jusfurme, COZYHORSE, and PETCREATIONSBYJANE, and Amazon users Doggles and Rubie's.
