“This is my Shih Tzu Izzy putting up with me doing a Halloween photo shoot. Adorable little witch!” (AGREED!) -Jaclyn J.



  1. Surprised “bee” isn’t on the top ten. EVERYTHING gets dressed as bees.

  2. i clicked through (then clicked through because the link is a clickjacker, then clicked through because the link they were clickjacking was a press release) to the place that sells the dog costume and sorted by sales and this list isn’t even close.

  3. Or hot dogs

  4. Minion? What exactly does a “minion” look like?

  5. Linda, mom to six rescued bunnies says:

    Casey, the Minions are the little yellow dudes who serve as assistants to the villain/hero of the “Despicable Me” movies.

  6. I don’t know about you, but I dress up my cat. She’s a spider, but loses her dignity the second it is put on and her older cat friend sees her!

  7. You wha’, …I just, …it didn’t, …who knows.

  8. My minions look like university students! I make them do all the work, so I can sit back and surf CuteOverload.

    I guess that ‘minion’ costume would be a bleary-eyed twenty-something shackled to a keyboard. 🙂

  9. How can a hot dog with mustard not be in the top ten? Or is that only with sausage dogs? Actually what is the point of having a sausage dog if you don’t dress him/her up as a hot dog with mustard?

  10. emmberrann says:

    Mr. Picky always (un-)dressed up for Halloween as a nudist. He refused to wear anything, even a collar, so “nudist” became his costume, his only costume.

  11. We’ll be sitting outside this year in pirate costumes with gold-foil-wrapped candy to give away. Our dog George has a pirate hat he’ll be wearing as well! It’s not a full costume, but the hat will be enough for him to put up with.
