We love cute dog clothes any day of the week, but take a look at our list of the craziest, silliest, and most ingenious dog and cat costume ideas we've seen so far.

Peacock Dog Costume

1. Peacock Dog Costume

Wow. This peacock dog dress (with matching hat!) is exquisite - if a tad ridiculous. And it comes with an equally shocking price tag - $340! See the custom Etsy dress yourself.

For creative ideas, this pirates and treasure dog costume may just take the gold! A lot of time and effort must have went into this hilarious creation. Arr!

3. Egg Roll Dog Costume

One must wonder where the inspiration comes from some of these costumes. Who thinks...I'm going to make my dog be an egg roll! But...successfully pulled off in the end with bonus points for originality. 

4. Star Wars AT-AT Walker Dog Costume

Star Wars AT-AT Walker Dog Costume

It has to take some kind of fan to create this masterwork. But if any movie following can deliver that sort of fan dedication, Star Wars can.

5. Baby Seal Dog Costume

While pretty simple in design, this dog costume is perfectly executed. That face just fits. Cute!

6. Spaghetti and Meatballs Dog Costume

Dressing up your dog or cat like food has to be a category all its own for all its popularity. I think this DIY spaghetti and meatballs takes the cake!

7. Martini Dog Costume

This do-it-yourself costume idea is not just creative, it's inexpensive and a great way to use objects on hand. I'll drink to that!

8. Football Dog Costume

Football Dog Costume

This dog costume is definitely the simplest on our list, but that doesn't make it any less adorable! What a sweet costume for a chocolate lab puppy and a family of football fans.

9. Headless Horseman Dog Costume


Just perfect - right down to the hoof paw covers. A pet costume true to the spooky holiday it celebrates. 

10. Hello Kitty Cat Costume

Hello Kitty Cat Costume

Aww! The perfect costume for a Hello Kitty fan's feline companion. That is, if you can get your cat to keep that hat on...

11. IPad Dog Costume

IPad Dog Costume

Pugs look funny in just about any costume. And if you find a way to add pug to the name, you've got a definite win. Corny, but undeniably cute.

12. Zombie Dog Costume

Zombie Dog Costume

While not a true costume, per se, this had to make my list for creativity and overall effect. An example of what's called creative grooming, this undead look is created using a dog clipper and pet-safe dye. Oh, and one very talented groomer.

13. Knight Dog Costume

Knight Dog Costume

This dog costume doesn't just stand out for its uniqueness - just look at the detail. Huzzah!

14. Croc Attack Dog Costume

This may just be the funniest costume on our list. Worth a double-take for sure! But it's maybe not the most practical for your dog. I wonder just exactly how this dog would do his business...

15. Scuba Dog Costume

Scuba Dog Costume

I wouldn't want to be the dog in this costume - I mean, that can't be comfortable! But kudos for the detail in the suit.

16. Ewok Dog Costume


You'd really have to have the right kind of dog to make this work. And these dogs are working the Ewok look. Those super simple hoods just add to the effect.

17. Lion Cat


If your cat had to choose a costume, I think this would be it. Then again, what cat doesn't already believe he's a lion?

18. Scuba Cat


Even more daring and outrageous than Scuba Dog...Scuba Cat! In my opinion, any costume on a cat is a feat. A unitard? Praiseworthy.

19. Winnie The Pooh Dog


So sweet! And doesn't the pose just match? Honey Coma!

20. Three-Headed Dog (Fluffy)


This 3-Headed Dog Costume (Fluffy) from Harry Potter is fantastic! What a great combo with the child costume. Looks like a lot of work, but it sure pays off...

What is the best pet costume you've ever seen?
