I love Halloween. It's one of my favorite yearly events. Arthur, however, does not love Halloween, mostly because it represents yet another opportunity for me to dress him up in a humiliating fashion. Sorry, boy. When I dress you up like a giant bumblebee, I do it with love.
To make matters worse, I now work at a pet accessories store, and it is currently chock full of pet outfits, all very hi-larious, and naturally, I brought some of them home to try on Arthur, with mixed results.
The schoolboy was okay - the cape was no problem, but he didn't like the hat. It has a big, red pompom on the top that you can't see in this picture.

The pumpkin was about as popular as the schoolboy: easy-on collar, barely tolerable hat.

Okay, so this is just a hat and therefore not really a costume, but Arthur makes such a nice cowboy. This piece was made of felt and very soft, but he really disliked the velcro attachment band.

This picture speaks for itself. He despised the beanie. Truly hated it. He's shooting daggers at my camera.

The big winner! For whatever reason, he liked the dragon. Maybe because it felt like a jacket, which he likes, or maybe because the headpiece sat pretty far back on his head. No matter. Just look at that smile.
