Get your desserts ready! You’ll probably need them to trick your four-legged friend into dressing up in one of these adorable pet costumes for Halloween. That’s right, it’s the time of year when dogs and cats compete against kids to see who can be the stinky cutie. Whether you love dressing your pet as an everyday hero (like a mail carrier) or a comic book superhero—or transforming them into whole other species—Walmart has plenty of Instagram-worthy options.

We’ve sorted through the Halloween aisle for you and found pet costumes that meet our basic animal apparel criteria: no excess pieces to be crushed or chewed on, no tricky buttons or flicks (Velcro only, please) and easy leash access. This means that there is an opportunity to enjoy these Halloween costumes as much as you like.

Dogs live everywhere to bark at the postman. Halloween is the perfect time to flip the script and let your package-delivery pup for a change. This special delivery kit slips over your dog’s front paws and clips along his back, making it look like a bipedal message carrier. Holds securely in the arms attached to an official Priority Mail parcel. The costume set, starting at $20, is complete with an authentic USPS logo hat. Order now so you won’t be late for your party or show – Valmart has the shipping cost for you.

Get along with your little dog…or kitty! This $12 western-style costume comes in sizes to fit both dog and cat wannabes. Just put their front paws into your little Wrangler, fasten the Velcro closure behind their neck, secure the adorable beanie under his chin and teach him the command: “Reach for the sky!” Don’t worry about the bandana and rope turning into chew toys – they are sewn securely.

Let your good boy or girl do Halloween like Shark Week. With its embroidered eyes, felt teeth, and shiny metallic blue skin, this $12 hooded jaw-drop costume is great for pets who don’t like a hood or anything on their face or ears. It fastens behind the neck and at the waist with Velcro, and you can push the flap back. Firm padding ensures that the fins – especially that dorsal fin – stand up in the most hair-raising way.

Scallywag has taken on a whole new meaning. From the ruffled shirt to the attached sword tip, this spare $12 costume will earn your pup or kitten plenty of Halloween swag. It is easy to put on thanks to the Velcro closure at the neck, and the skull and crossbones hat has ear loops. Now about the surface of the stool…

Who is your favorite sidekick? They deserve a heroic Halloween, and this DC Comics licensed costume has plenty of POWs! to get around. From the iconic R logo on her chest to the contrasting sleeves and clown eye mask, this bodysuit is an authentic replica of the Crusader’s best friend. You’ll appreciate that the cape is removable in case you start to annoy them. Available in sizes 2X and 3X, it’s perfect for larger crime-fighters.

The cutest outfit for your dog or cat is also the most comfortable—and at $12, it’ll be a honeycomb. This padded jacket fastens at the chest with Velcro and an attached hood. At the back, the black sequin wings turn silver when raised. Padded antennae and stingers protrude on the cap and just above the tail.

Add a pot of broth, and you’ll have the tastiest cooked garb for just $12. The claws, movable feet, and meaty tail of this crustacean are made of a shiny red metallic material that is padded and realistically detailed for a 3D effect. On the lid, Google eyes and standing antennas add a cartoonish touch. It’s basically a robe—nothing that attaches to your pet’s legs, which makes it more bearable. Simply attach the Velcro to the neck and take a photo before steaming.

I don’t know about your pup, but people I know spend a lot of time in the kitchen thinking about food. A chef costume is a natural choice for dogs obsessed with their next meal, especially when it’s easy—and inexpensive, at $20—to pull off. Don’t let the shiny buttons put you off: These little chef whites secure with Velcro at the neck like a collar. The final touch (chef’s kiss), that traditional hat, has an elastic chin strap that you can adjust for a snug fit. Clip it to the ears and let your foodie go back to the stove.

No time to carve a pumpkin? Let your dog be the star of your porch, greeting trick-or-treaters with that bright smile and teeth. This padded gourd suit fastens with Velcro across the chest instead of pulling on the head to reduce discomfort. The matching torso hat has an elastic band with ear loops to hold it in place. For just $12, he’ll definitely cast a friendly glow.

Summer isn’t officially over until the last hot dog. Savor it a little longer with this perfect $12 hot dog costume for dogs or cats. The quiche bun looks totally squeezable, and it’s topped with shiny metallic ketchup and mustard. With delicious condiments along the back, there’s no need for a hood (your pet might appreciate it). Just attach the Velcro straps at the back and under the belly, then have fun.
