Alabama residents are known to buy Halloween costumes for their furry friends, dress up their dogs and cats as hot dogs, bumblebees, dragons, unicorns, tacos, witches, sharks and more.

The most important thing, of course, is to make sure any cute costume is safe and comfortable for your pet, even if Fluffy or Fido only wears it to pose for pictures.

There are plenty of places to buy pet Halloween costumes, along with trends on which ones shoppers buy the most. Walmart, for example, says the most popular costumes in its stores this year are likely to be cow, bumblebee and ladybug.

“Food costumes continue to be in style this year, the hot dog is a classic and Walmart’s new sushi costume is a fun twist,” said Gabriela Dobson, Walmart’s Senior Pet Merchant. , in a press release.

In 2021, a bumblebee costume was the most popular for pets at Walmart stores in Alabama, according to the release. The retail chain’s shoppers in 19 other states — including Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia — also preferred the bumblebee last year.

Another bestseller in 2021 — at Walmart stores in states from Florida to California — was a dragon costume. Results for all states were based on Walmart’s point-of-sale units, according to the release.

No information was provided on how the animals felt about their Halloween outfits, or how long it took the costumed cats to give their owners a major stinky eye.
