For those of us who are too old to dress up ourselves and don’t yet have children to dress up for Halloween, the next best thing is dressing up our pets. And while my cat would rather fight a pack of rabid coyotes than wear a costume, my sweet angelic Golden Retriever, Addy, is more than happy to wear all sorts of outrageous outfits if it makes me happy—seriously, what did we do to deserve dogs?

To help you find the best possible Halloween costume for your dog, Addy and I tested out 10 of Chewy’s most popular costumes. Here, we’ve ranked all the outfits on a scale of 1 to 5 pumpkins 🎃 (because stars are too boring), and Addy is modeling each outfit for your viewing pleasure.

(For reference, Addy is a fairly small Golden Retriever—she weighs around 50 pounds, and most of the costumes we got were extra-large.)

1. An adorable bumble bee

Don't worry, Addy doesn't sting!

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

Pretty much every time we go outside, I find myself yelling at Addy not to eat bees—or “spicy sky raisins,” if you’re fluent in dog-speak. However, I have to say that she herself makes an absolutely adorable little bumble bee.

This costume has two parts—a body piece and a headpiece—and it was super easy to put on, as the body piece has adjustable velcro straps. The antennas have wire inside to help them stand up, and the headpiece fit snuggly so it didn’t slide backwards off her head. Overall, we loved this costume and would definitely wear it again!

2. A festive Addy-o-Lantern

Behold: The cutest pumpkin to put on your front porch.

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

If I had to guess, I’d say this cute pumpkin costume was Addy’s favorite of the bunch, as it’s comfortable for her to wear. It includes a jack-o-lantern jacket with sparkly green leaves around the collar, and the hat is totally adorable with its little curly stem.

The costume is easy to put on, but you’ll probably have trouble getting your dog to keep the hat on. It tightens with an elastic cord, but every time I turned around, Addy had knocked it off her head. She truly didn’t mind the body piece, though!

3. A naughty prisoner

Addy hates being in the dog house—but loves chasing the cat. Tsk, tsk.

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

Though she’s usually quite well-behaved, there are definitely times when Addy ends up in the dog house, and from now on, I’m going to put her in this prisoner uniform when she’s in trouble. It’s basically just a striped doggy T-shirt, and the XL was actually fairly tight on Addy, so I’d recommend sizing up when in doubt.

This costume comes with a cute matching hat, as well, and because of its round shape, it stayed on her head surprisingly well. The only thing is that it tends to crease along the sides, making it hard to read the “Prisoner” label.

4. A fluffy pink pig

Is she not the cutest little piggy you've ever seen?

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

This was my favorite costume of the ones we tested, not only because I love pink but also because I always say Addy was a pig in her past life. She loves nothing more than being dirty, wet, and muddy, so I think this costume fits her personality perfectly!

The pig costume has two pieces, and the body was easy to velcro around Addy’s torso. The headpiece fit snuggly and stayed in place, and I loved that the ears stuck out. Like several of the other costumes, this one wasn’t long enough to cover Addy’s whole torso, but I still think it’s absolutely precious.

5. A Chewy delivery driver carrying a package of goodies

Who wouldn't be happy to see this adorable delivery driver?

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

We’ve all seen that viral video of a little dog dressed up in a UPS costume, and this outfit is Chewy’s own take on the concept. When viewed from the front, this three-piece costume makes it look like your pooch is carrying a Chewy box, but to be honest, I think the idea works better on small dogs.

This costume includes a neck piece with elastic bands that keep your dog’s “pants” in place, as well as a torso piece that attaches to the neck piece with velcro. It’s fairly easy to put on, but it takes a few additional steps. Finally, there’s the matching hat, which is held in place by a unique three-piece elastic band that works much better than single straps.

6. A magical unicorn with a glowing horn

The horn may light up, but this costume wasn't all that magical.

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃

I had high hopes for this unicorn costume, but unfortunately, it fell a bit flat. It’s made from a sparkly white fabric with multi-colored wings and a tail, but the wings don’t stand up at all and the body piece was much too short for Addy’s torso.

The headpiece is cute and includes a button that makes the horn light up, but it didn’t fit Addy well at all. The front either ended up covering her eyes—which she obviously didn’t like—or the hood would fall back onto her neck. Overall, it’s cute for a few pictures, but your pooch probably won’t want to wear it for very long.

7. A swashbuckling pirate with a hook hand

You don't want to cross this wily pirate!

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

Similar to the Chewy delivery costume, this pirate costume is designed to give your dog “arms” that stick off to the sides. Again, I think the whole idea works better on small dogs, so the arms and legs are proportional, but overall, I liked this costume a lot.

There’s only one body piece, so it was easy to put on, and the hat fit nicely onto Addy’s head, staying in place easily. However, we can’t give it a whole five pumpkins, as it really only looks good from straight-on.

8. Everyone’s favorite female superhero: Wonder Woman

This costume was huge on Addy, so you may want to size down!

  • Size: XXL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃

Addy was ready and willing to be the super-dog that the world needs, but unfortunately, this costume was another flop. We got the XXL based on the size chart in the product description, but the costume was huge on her!

The skirt piece of the bodysuit started at her tail, and when she walked, it ended up trailing behind her. Plus, the crown had a very large elastic band with minimal adjustability, and there was really no logical way to secure it around her head.

9. A derpy dinosaur

This costume is amazing, if only because it's incredibly awkward.

  • Size: XL
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃🎃

I’m not going to lie: My boyfriend and I laughed so hard that we cried when Addy put this costume on. She just looked—and acted—so awkward! My derpy little dinosaur.

The costume consists of a large body piece and a matching hood, and you’ll definitely want to measure your pooch before you buy it, as it’s important that the body piece isn’t too short. Otherwise, you’ll have a hard time getting your dog’s legs through all four holes—it was the tiniest bit tight on Addy, but still worked.

10. A bushy, fierce lion’s mane

"Rawr," says Addy, a fierce lioness.

  • Size: Large
  • Our rating: 🎃🎃🎃

I was most looking forward to seeing Addy in this lion costume, as she has the perfect coloring to be a fierce feline for Halloween. As expected, she looked truly adorable wearing the headpiece, but she genuinely hated it! Even with its adjustable elastic, there was no way she would keep this on for any length of time. Plus, the ears are too far back, and they don’t stand up enough for my liking. Unfortunately, this costume is currently sold out on the Chewy website.
