31 Things I Love About Halloween: Grown-Up Costumes
I like people costumes much better than pet costumes because there's none of that worry that maybe the animals aren't enjoying it as much as the people are. (Like with most things in life, I think this probably varies from pet to pet, so I don't like to make generalizations, but when I don't know the animal, I err on the side of concern for its feelings. Some pets obviously don't have a problem with it though and when they don't, neither do I.)
Another point in the favor of people costumes - particularly those created and worn by adults - is that when grown-ups get serious about making their own costumes, astounding works of art appear. I've got zero skills in this area, so I'm always impressed by what folks come up with.
