Star Wars Costumes, Superman and other superhero costumes aswell as witch costumes are the top sellers.Fancy dress with dogs, is similar to that of humans in that there is a huge increase in sales over the halloween period, popular Halloween fancy dress for dogs included ghoul, witch and devil costumes. Before now owners who wanted to dress up their pets, would design something themselves but more and more people are willing to splash out on making their dogs look great and a costume for your pooch is fast becoming the must have accessory.
