With the new Lion King remake now out in cinemas, lion costumes are more popular than ever. After all, who wouldn’t want to be the king of the jungle for Halloween? Let us hear you roar loud and proud in your lion costume! Lion onesies are soft, cuddly, and warm–a perfect choice for Halloween. You could also opt for other kinds of lion costumes, or even just a lion mask!

Shark Costume


Shark week has been making waves, this year! People are growing more and more aware that sharks get a bad reputation. A shark costume could be whatever you want it to be! It has the potential to be scary, adorable, or even funny (Left shark, we’re looking at you).

It really doesn’t get much cuter than a kid in a panda costume! Adults can also enjoy these black and white costumes as they tend to be quite cozy. Pandas are endangered animals, so you could also choose to wear a panda costume to raise awareness to that cause, the same way people wear polar bear costumes at climate protests.
