I love to dress up my dog as a ladybug. I got the Ladybug Costume online – just Pet Costume - Ladybug Jacketlike the one you see here and used their specific size chart to make sure it would fit my little bichon.

The Ladybug costume had a head part attached like a hooded sweatshirt. The hood had a slit on each side for my dog’s ears to come out, which was very helpful when dressing him.

The Ladybug costume I got was made of a light weight red fabric with black silk wings attached. To top it off, there are antennas on the hood to make my pup look like a real bug! The costume has Velcro strips on the bottom to make it easy to put on and take off.

Another dog costume I love to put him in is his Dog Butterfly Costume. It is basically made the same with the Velcro attaching at the bottom. It is made of the same light weight fabric, which I think helps the dogs to stay cool. It is easy to add accessories to the dog halloween costumes by making anklets out of colored elastic and sequins, feathers, and jewels.

All you have to do is measure an elastic piece about 4 to 6 inches long, depending on the dog’s size, and then sewing it together at the ends for a Dog Butterfly costume. You can then use a hot glue gun to attach decorations and once dry they are very easy to slip over the dogs paw, and they add a lot to any doggie costume.

You can also accessorize dog collars and the dog leashes to match the Dog Butterfly Costume as well, using the same method with the hot glue. Whichever dog costume you choose, it is best to make sure the dog is fully comfortable in it before being taken out.

Keep in mind that sometimes if a dog costume is too tight or heavy it can cause the dog distress to wear. But if a dog seems to not notice the costume, then that is a good sign. Check here for even more dog costume ideas for your own pet.
