I love looking at all the creative, DIY dog Halloween costumes that people come up with. They are hilarious! But let’s be honest with ourselves – sometimes, we just don’t have the time, energy or creative juices to make them. However, it doesn’t mean our dogs shouldn’t get dressed up in a wacky, wet-your-pants funny kind of costume. That’s why I went looking for the coolest, rib-tickling dog Halloween costumes you can buy (online to boot!) and have delivered right to your door.

1. Editor’s Pick: TOMSENN Dog Lion Mane

Ideal for large to medium sized dog breeds, this lion mane was made from high quality materials and can easily be cleaned.

Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep… until you put this Freddy Krueger Dog Costume on your pup. Nightmares have never been this adorable! It comes with the famous red striped sweater, a top hat, and a knife glove (but not with snappy one-liners before he disposes of his victims). Your dog can tear it up in one of four sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large.

3. Customer’s Choice: Ghostbuster Jumpsuit Pet Costume

Who you going to call? Ghostbusters! Your dog can bust some ghosts – or dog treats – in this iconic ’80s movie costume. Complete with a shirt and backpack, your pooch can take on the things that go “Woof” in the night. Let’s just hope you don’t get slimed by your dog’s licker – that’s an ectoplasm you don’t want all over your face.

Yer’ dog’s a wizard! Or, they can be with this cute Halloween costume. Choose your House colors and if the collared life is for you – this lightweight costume comes in eight different options and four sizes. Each costume comes with a hooded cape, and if you’re up for the challenge, you can even try finishing off the costume with a pair of familiar round glasses. Yep – this dog parent is a bit of a Harry Potter nerd – and proud of it!
