- The desire for costumes that make pets look cute is definitely in line with the buying trends we’re seeing on Pet360.com. Two of our best sellers this year include the Hello Kitty Cuff Set from Rubies and Animal Planet’s Lion Costume – both of which make our four-legged friends look especially cute.
Survey respondents were also asked to identify the single most important factor when choosing their pet’s costume. 59% said they decide based on their pet’s personality. 27% choose according to their pet’s looks. 10% decide based on their own personality, and 4% go with their favorite celebrity or fictional character.
