With Halloween just around the corner, you’re going to running up against the agonizing decision of what to dress up as for those office parties. Will you dress up as Princess Leia as Jabba’s prisoner or Michelle Pfiefer as Catwoman? But enough about my past costumes. Not only that, but what about your pets? How will you adorn your own Fido or Sprinkles to celebrate the holiday? (Just a note: Don’t put a costume on your goldfish. He will die 100% of the time. Not that I speak from experience or anything.) No clue? No sweat. We did a web roundup for you of 25 of the most impressive and most impressive pet cosplay the Internet had to offer that will maybe give you an idea of how to dress up your pet and earn his eternal ire.

4 Mario

“Dragons, you say? Flying turtles? I think I’ll be taking a nap in the sun instead. Pity about your princess, though.” [Photo courtesy of: Dorkly. Maybe.]

Princess Leia

Koopa Troopa

The Headless Dogman

10 Horseman

Of all the cosplay pets I’ve seen so far, this doggie seems genuinely happy to be dressed up. Or maybe he’s just ready to scare the shit out of Ichabod Kitty. [Photo courtesy of: Geek Chic. Maybe.]

Wonder Woman

11 Wonder Woman

So, would that be the golden leash of Truth? Would Wonder Woman’s real name be Diana Pup? Any of these dog puns doing anything for you? [Photo courtesy of: Made in China.]

The Mush with a Snout

Pop Tart?

17 Pop Tart

Is this doggie supposed to be a magical pop tart? The mythical Nyan Cat? A pastry that farts rainbows? Who knows, but it was too good not to include. [Photo courtesy of: SodaHead. Maybe.]


18 Cerebus

This Cerberus costume is genius! It’s hard to believe that this puppy’s other two heads are dangerous when his real head is so regal. The Harry Potter is pretty cute, too. [Photo courtesy of: Puppy Toob. Maybe.]

I’m going to be that the only way they got that dog to sit still was rum. Lots of rum. [Photo courtesy of: Fashionably Geek. Maybe.]
