Chucky the demonic doll has come to terrorize the neighborhood, and trust us, his bite is worse than his bark. He’ll brandish his foam knife and haunt your dreams until you release the chocolate—don’t talk to him about worms!
You used to have a dog; now you have a ukulele player who shops at thrift stores and just rented an apartment in Brooklyn, New York. There are no sewing skills necessary for this DIY look—you just need an instrument, a newsboy cap or beanie, a scarf, and a pup who will agree to wear shades.

Put your pup in a time machine to 17th-century France and transform them into a literary legend with this Three Musketeers custom costume, available only on Etsy. When Halloween’s over, save the get-up for Fifi’s first Renaissance Fair or to keep your dog warm in the winter.

You have a dog 364 days a year—why not manifest a different kind of pet this Halloween with a DIY Chia pet costume? Grab four orange Wellies to resemble terracotta planters—or spray paint a couple of old pairs—then wrap your pup in faux foliage; it won’t stick her skin like real foliage can. This one might be more of a photo opp than a stroll-about-town get-up, however.
