20 Puppy Costumes We Wish We Could Rock This Howl-oween

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCF chapter.

There are two things in life that I am absolutely certain of, the first being my love for puppies, the second being my hatred for dressing up. Nowadays it seems as if Halloween is becoming a whole lot scarier for one reason – sexualized costumes. Rather than let the evolution of Halloween costumes bog down one of the most spirited times of the year, I am choosing to live vicariously through these puppies, who, quite frankly, are sporting some of the raddest costumes we only wish we could rock this Howl-oween.  

1. Fast Food Squad – Animal Style


I would sacri-fries my dignity to wear any of these delectable ensembles.

This costume gets a big seal of approval.

Why does Fido wear stripes? He doesn’t want to be spotted!
