Petsmart releases their Halloween collection to the masses today, stocking seasonal pet-centric embellishments from a surfing Dracula fish tank accessory to a tutu-ed Superman dog costume. New for this season is an expanded selection of "rider costumes," which sits things like stuffed jockies (pictured above) and banana splits on your dogs back. "For pets that may not like a full costume, riders easily strap-on for a comfortable feel," informs the press release.
Martha Stewart Pets veers "classic" with animal costumes ($13 to $22) including a pumpkin skirt and home accents like orange dog beds ($30). Poison frontman and Rock of Love star Bret Michaels offers cat hats ($8) as part of his Pets Rock line. Disney, Muppet, DC, and Marvel characters round out the selection for cats and dogs, but even guinea pigs and reptiles have costume options, plus there are Halloween-themed treats and food including "Boo Stews" by Blue Buffalo.
We had a sneak peek at the cuteness in New York City last week—click through for a look at the costumes in action.
