13. Dog bitten by a crocodile

We aren't sure if this costume is very comfortable for the dog when it comes to urinating, but after taking them for a walk and giving them some treats, they will let you dress it up as if they are being eaten by a crocodile. Another option to create panic in your city. (We apologize to anyone with a phobia of crocodiles...)

14. The undead dog

This costume will certainly give a tremendous shock to your friends and colleagues when they see your dog for the first time with a false knife in their head. You'll find it at any costume shop, and even though it is intended for humans it will also work excellently with your furry friend.
