5. Zombie from The Walking Dead

Halloween Costumes 2017 zombie

You can’t turn on the television, go on social media or be near the water cooler at work without someone talking about The Walking Dead (Try it; it is impossible). And no wonder. The series about a world overrun by zombies appeals to a wide range (swath?) of audience due to its soap opera/drama combination, while also tugging at our own survival instincts.And with its eight season returning right before Halloween, (Oct. 22), a dog donning a zombie costume couldn’t come at more of a perfect time.

Price: $12.64-$26.12

6. The Male Romper

The male romper became a thing this spring. After a Kickstarter project launched called RompHim that raked in $353,804 (the goal was $10,000), adult men began sporting the one-piece getup in pastels, prints and textures. (For many, it was a head-scratching fashion revolution.) And while the hot weather is behind us, dogs can still sport the romper.

Price: $34
