If you’re an avid pet lover, you know very well that your pet can be the pride and joy of your life. Pets make us feel special and we, in turn, do our very best to take care of our animal companions. We do this because we feel that we are treating them as equals, as part of the family, and we help them feel like they belong with us. We take our pets almost everywhere we go. When we go on trips, we can’t bear the thought of leaving our pet at home, so off we go with the pet carriers. Holidays, of course, are no exception. Every major holiday is a chance to dress up your pet in the most festive of colors. There’s Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving…and of course, Halloween.
Looking for pet costumes need not be a very tricky operation. There is an abundance of sources for pet costumes online. One such online store is Buy Costumes.com. The company has its own page dedicated solely towards animal costumes. As with the other pages on the Buy Costumes site, the navigation bar can be found at the left side. The first thing you will notice is that the first distinction for categories is gender, followed by the themes. You can choose from a number of themes that you are interested in for your pet. Clicking on one of these links will take you to the store’s online catalog where literally hundreds of costumes await you. You can order the costumes directly from the site, and in some cases you can even submit a design to the site and they can custom-tailor a costume for your pet.
Halloween Express is another such site that carries costumes for pets. Don’t let the name fool you, the site offers much more than Halloween costumes. Clicking on the link will take you to the company’s main page for pet costumes, where the catalog is readily available. As with the previous site, you can browse through and order the costumes online at your convenience.
If you’ve gone through the Internet and found that there’s nothing to tickle your fancy, you might want to try making your own costume for your pet! First, you’ll need to understand that in making a costume for your pet you’ll need to consider extra holes for the legs and the tail.
