Lady Gaga

If your pup is a diva who likes to take center stage in all your Instagram pics, you’ll want to get this Pop Sensation pet costume. It’s clearly modeled after the queen of the little monsters, Lady Gaga, thanks to its doggy sunglasses and a hair bow wig. Along with all the photos you’ll inevitably take of your dog in this look, you’ll also want to record a few TikTok videos set to songs like “Monster” and “Bad Romance.”


The minions from the Despicable Me franchise are undoubtedly some of the most adorable characters to ever exist. It seems only fitting to dress your too-cute dog in a minions costume for Halloween. You could even use a line from Despicable Me, like “It’s so fluffy,” to caption your doggy pics.

Katy Perry

This Katy Perry-inspired look is another recognizable pop star costume you can get from Halloween Express. While it’s called “Cupcake Girl,” it’s modeled after Perry’s look in her “California Gurls” music video with her iconic blue hair wig and cupcake bra. Your pooch will be such a good sport wearing this that you’ll want to get them their very own pupcake as a treat afterwards.

Beer Keg

One of the funniest costumes that Halloween Express has is this beer keg costume, which will make your dog look like they’re carrying a keg everywhere they go. The best part of all is that their back legs are used to make it look like another dog is helping them, so you’ll want to record a bunch of videos of your dog walking around the house for instant LOLs.


While this skeleton costume is cute on its own, you can use it to make a Phoebe Bridgers-inspired costume as well. The “Motion Sickness” singer is known for wearing skeleton onesies like this one. You could even wear a matching onesie ($43, Halloween Express) with your pup for all those nights you plan on watching scary movies together on the couch.

Toto From The Wizard Of Oz

If you’re dressing up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz for Halloween this year, get your dog this costume to look like your Toto. The design is what makes it truly one of the best costumes from Halloween Express. When put on, it makes your pup look like they’re Toto peeking his head out of Dorothy’s basket.

‘80s Retro

For a real blast from the past, get your pet this ‘80s-inspired costume. It comes with a very retro neon tracksuit and a boombox to make your dog or cat look like they’re about to breakdance or listen to some Run-D.M.C. It’s totally tubular.


If you’d rather go the scary route, you have to get this spider costume. It’ll make your dog look like a creepy crawler whenever they walk around. You may even frighten people on your daily walks around the neighborhood, so be careful.

Box Of Chocolates

The versatility of this costume makes it a must-have. First of all, a box of chocolates is a sweet costume idea by itself. However, the best way to wear this is if you’re planning to go as Forrest Gump for Halloween. Your pup will be the box of chocolates he carries around. You could even use his iconic line as your Insta caption for your matching costume snap.


If you’re excited about the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie, you may want to get your pet this Ghostbusters costume. It even comes with the proton pack in the back so your pet will look like they’re ready to bust some ghouls. If you want to match with your fur friend, you could even get yourself a Ghostbuster suit ($68, Halloween Express). Caption your pic together, “We ain’t afraid of no ghost” in reference to the Ray Parker Jr. song.
