halloween costumes - dog friendly ♥

Okay this blog post is slightly different to my usual fashion and beauty posts but as soon as the Halloween season approaches, all of the rules go out of the window. For some reason, Halloween just adds a touch of magic to my routine and I was even more excited when I saw that natural dog food suppliers Feedem* have created a list of Halloween costume ideas! Yes, you can actually dress up your pet for Halloween - dreams really do come true. If you are looking to read a fun and light hearted blog post today, grab your hot chocolate and prepare to scroll through quite a few Halloween costume ideas for yes, your dog. Let the Halloween season begin!
Lion
To make your dog look and feel ferocious this Halloween, why not dress them as a lion? Instead of a full outfit, you can buy just the manes here to create this costume, this is slightly easier and pretty practical too. 
Fit: 6/10
There are various sized manes available, they range from extra small to large. In many manes, there is an elastic band that encircles the face opening to make sure that it fits to size.
Material/Comfort: 3/10
Of course, it depends on the tolerance of your dog as to how irritated they become by this outfit. Effectivity: 5/10
Unless you have plenty of time on your hands to create a DIY alternative, the manes available to buy are lightly coloured. These would be most suitable for golden-coated pups, and may not look as effective on darker haired dogs.
Overall rating: 14/30

Spider pup
Most likely less intimidating than an actual creepy crawly, is your spider pup. Complete with fur and eight legs, you can pick up the costume here.
Fit: 6/10
The material from this outfit goes underneath your dog so that it is fitted properly and less likely to fall off. However, we think that this outfit would be difficult to squeeze those larger dogs in.
Material/Comfort: 2/10
This costume has received a low rating for material and comfort due to the eight legs attached to the outfit. This cannot be comfortable for the dog when walking or playing – this costume would be most appropriate for a photo opportunity.
Effectivity: 8/10
Despite the low levels of comfort, this is an effective outfit that would make your pup the centre of attention at Halloween.
Overall rating: 10/30

TY beanie baby
Suitable for the smaller, fluffier pups, the TY beanie baby outfit can be made in your own home. Simply create the traditional TY label out of cardboard and felt and attach it to your dog’s collar our round their neck. For added cuteness, you could write a message inside the tag such as your dog’s name and what it likes to do.
Fit: 9/10
Since this outfit can be created at home, you can make sure that the tag fits nicely onto your dog’s collar.
Material/Comfort: 8/10
Unlike other outfits, this costume shouldn’t interfere with your dog too much as it is not fitted to any part of their bodies. Instead, they might become distracted by the tag and pull it off.
Effectivity: 5/10
The TY beanie baby range is recognisable by many and therefore this outfit can be effective for your dog. However, it is not a full costume and may not be as impressive as others.
Overall rating: 22/30

Pumpkin puppy
There are some pumpkin puppy costumes available online and in shops however, it can be easy to make one at home. With some orange and black felt and some Velcro, you can cut out a suitable outfit for your dog and stick a Halloween design on the back with craft glue.
Fit: 7/10
If you are designing this outfit yourself, you can ensure that it is the perfect fit for your furry friend! However, dogs tend to be playful and move around a lot – this could cause the garment to slip around.
Material/Comfort: 6/10
Felt is a comfortable material for your dog and it is unlikely that this would lead to any irritation. However, the fact that they are wearing an outfit that is fitted around their legs, may be uncomfortable for them.
Effectivity: 7/10
This outfit could look very effective if it is created in the right way. It is fitting with the Halloween theme and would be recognisable as a pumpkin.
Overall rating: 20/30

After a thorough review of some of the most popular puppy Halloween costumes it looks as though there is a clear winner. Dressing your dog as a TY beanie baby is affordable, effective and can be created so that it fits your dog perfectly. The main positive about this outfit is that it is comfortable for your dog, they can still play as they wish - without eight legs or a lion’s mane getting in the way…

  2. Now, regarding our Fake Rolex Watches this doesn’t have such a poorly cloned dial, but there are small differences that give it away and these are: the Rolex Watches logo which is in a different shade of gold, Rolex Watches is one of the most popular chronographs in the world of classic aviation watches. Hermes handbags is the undeniable star of the Breitling collection, I love the quality of it almost exactly the same as the Hermes Handbags!
