1Your Favorite Marvel Character
Blue Hoodie, $37, Etsy
Be the hero you wish to see in the world. If you and your cat both love the Marvel cinematic universe, you can go as your favorite superhero for Halloween. If you can't find a specific cat version of the costume, you can always get a blue hoodie for your cat's Captain America look on Etsy, and paint an "A" on it. You can DIY your own version, too.
Fingerless Faux Fur Gloves, $32, Etsy
If your cat isn't into costumes, you can always go as your fuzzy baby for Halloween. This way, you're #twinning in the most adorable fashion. Cat ears and a tail are easily finds at any Halloween store. You can even get super creative by matching the fur of your cat with some fingerless faux fur gloves on Etsy.
4Would You Like Fries With These Costumes?
Cheeseburger Cat Hat, $20, Etsy
"Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger," can I have these adorable costumes?! You'll most likely find a burger cat costume in any pet store, or there's this sweet cheeseburger cat hat on Etsy your feline friend will melt hearts in. As for you, all you'll need is a paper hat that you can score for free at any In-N-Out or Steak 'n Shake. I don't know about you, but I personally love the word "free."
5Be The Mystical Creatures You Know You Are
6Your Fave Characters From 'Stranger Things'
Pink Dress, $5, Etsy
Stranger Things season two is almost here, so why not be your favorite characters for Halloween? Your cat can find a simple pink dress to be Eleven on Etsy. You can get creative with whatever character you want to be, but don't forget the essential props, like Christmas lights, or a box of Eggo waffles.
7May The Force Be With Your Costumes
Your entire crew can dress up for Halloween in Star Wars costumes. If you're pumped for The Last Jedi, you can celebrate by being Luke and Leia. Target has a pet Chewbacca costume for your fur baby, and you can easily be Princess Leia with items you probably already have in your house. Put your hair up in the signature buns, and find a white dress from your closet.
8Our Hearts Are Melting For These 'Frozen' Costumes
Don't "let it go" this Halloween, and instead, go all out. You and your cat can go as characters from Disney's Frozen. You can find a pet version of Princess Anna's dress on Etsy, and Target has an awesome Olaf costume for you. If you don't want to dish out a lot of cash, grab a white T-shirt, and stick three black buttons on it. You can also make a carrot nose out of some orange construction paper.
9This Halloween, You're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat
Honestly, Jaws would be way less scary and probably my favorite movie ever if it was just a cute little cat in a shark costume. There are a ton of shark costumes for your cat, and a fierce shark onesie for yourself all on Etsy! You can also dress yourself up as a pirate if you don't want to match. Just put together your most sea-worthy outfit from what you have in your closet, and top it off with a DIY eye patch out of string and black paper.
