Dog Costumes For Halloween – Human Style Or Dog Style – Which Is Better?

Dog Halloween costumes have come a long way. These days, one option is to dress your pooch up as a superhero or movie character, and there are many different styles from which to choose. Two main archetypes are the faux person, human style or the traditional dog style of outfit. Usually, costumes and clothes on a dog seen from the front don’t give the full effect because whatever cool design or stitching is done on the back of the dog where it can be best appreciated. This is the traditional canine design of clothes, and it goes for just about everything from shirts to coats, sweaters and even costuming. A new idea that hit the market a few years ago is a dog costume that looks like a fake person from the front. For example, if you want to dress your small dog like Superman for Halloween, the human style one has leggings for your pooch’s front legs and over the chest goes a stuffing filled body of Superman with the emblem on the chest and all. This is cute because it looks like the character with your dog’s head on top. There are other heroes and movie characters, like Wonder Woman, Batman and even Star Wars characters like Yoda and Darth Vader. Man’s best friend can go trick or treating and save the world at the same time!

There are traditional dog style costumes for all of these characters as well, so an owner has a lot of selection of what to make their hound for “howloween”. If you have two dogs, you could dress one as Superman and call the other Superdog with the dog style costume. Both styles will be a hit at any party or for any one coming to trick-or-treat at your house. Another thing to consider is the size of the dog. A large dog many have an easier time with the regular style of costume whereas a small dog can make the front style work better.
