5. Baby Shark 

The Baby Shark song quickly became one of those songs that even when you didn’t want to, you found yourself singing along or humming the tune. Kids around the globe can’t get enough of the video. (It currently has over 3.7 billion views.) And with the Washington Nationals fans recently turning the song into a battle cry, we should have an interesting World Series. 

Your dog is sure to get a ton of laughs and giggles this year with this adorable costume. Sizes S/L.

Price: $12.99-13.99

6. Woody

Toy Story 4 was another huge movie that came out this year. Bo Peep who has been MIA for quite some time, resurfaces and joins forces with Sheriff Woody to rescue Bonnie’s new toy, Forky. Once they complete their mission Woody realizes that he has a new calling: He wants to help lost toys find owners.

At the end of the movie Woody says an emotional goodbye to his friends Buzz and Jessie before embarking on an adventure with Bo to find all of the carnival toys a home. If you are feeling nostalgic this year, then dress your dog up as Woody. Maybe he will find his Bo Peep this Halloween. Sizes S-XL.

Price: $26.95

7. Alien

If you tune into any news station or go on social media then you probably heard about the plan to storm Area 51. A college student created a Facebook event with intent to visit the highly classified government facility where supposed UFO debris exists.

Although it first started as a joke, over 2 million people responded that they were going. This caused many businesses in the area to stock their shelves with novelty items and prepare for the onslaught of tourists. Yet, when it came time to actually participate in the event only about 150 showed up, none of them successfully raiding the military base. 

Grab this adorable hoodie and see how many people make the connection this Halloween. Sizes L to 3XL. 

Price: $14.99-$15.99
