Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. Since it’s almost Halloween, we’ve chosen the best dog costumes on Amazon, according to the people — and for your convenience, we’ve rounded up all the best things for Halloween here. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best Wonder Woman dog costume

Rubie’s Costume DC Heroes and Villains Collection Pet Costume
From $12 at Amazon

“I got this costume for Penny, my 40-pound pit bull, to wear while we were trick-or-treating on Halloween. It was so cute! The dress doesn’t have ‘sleeves’ and the fabric ends right at the middle of her belly, so Penny was able to comfortably wear it without feeling like she was overwhelmed. I put it on her a few times before Halloween, and she was playing with her toys, walking around the house, and lounging in her bed like nothing was any different. She also tolerated the headband very well, but I think it’s because the headband is just a flat piece of fabric and elastic — nothing floppy or wobbly to make her feel like something is there that shouldn’t be. Pit bulls are broad-chested dogs, so the top Velcro pieces kept pulling apart, but it really wasn’t a huge deal. Overall, I’d say this outfit is very easy for a dog to wear, and it’s super cute!”

Best full-body dinosaur dog costume

Animal Planet PET20105 Stegosaurus Dog Costume
From $23 at Amazon

“This is honestly the cutest Halloween costume for a dog I have ever seen. I can’t stop laughing every time I put it on my Rufus. The head isn’t even a fuss. Once you attach it, it stays put! Since the body of the outfit and the head are separate pieces, you don’t have to worry about how to attach a leash, either!”

Best Pope dog costume

California Costumes Collections Holy Hound Dog Costume
From $13 at Amazon

“I bought this for my six-pound Pomeranian who is quite a diva. For her first Halloween, she wore a coconut bra and hula skirt from a Build-a-Bear store, because I did not want a typical dog costume. Needless to say, she won first prize that year in the pet Halloween costume contest. I haven’t been able to find just the right costume that would do justice until now. This was perfect for her, her personality makes her pull it off even more. She lets me put on outfits and her facial expressions are priceless, she thinks she is royalty, and this outfit of the Pope was perfect. It was delivered quickly from the seller and in time for Halloween and a Christmas picture.”

Best pirate dog costume

NACOCO Pet Dog Costume Pirates of the Caribbean Style
From $8 at Amazon

“This is AMAZING! We have a dachshund (wiener dog) and he fits perfectly in a small. If you need a good laugh and want a great costume for your dog, this is a must-buy. Wife and I laughed hysterically for about 30 minutes. I always wondered if the pictures do it justice, but this is spot-on. Fits nicely over our dog, and he didn’t seem to mind it much as it’s soft and elastic around his feet. I got this at a discount, but I would highly recommend this. Best dog costume we’ve bought.”

Best butterfly dog costume

Animal Planet PET20101 Butterfly Dog Costume
From $12 at Amazon

“This is wonderful and incredibly cute. The wings are a good size, big enough to be ridiculous, but not so big that they get in the way. Stay on the arms really well. The bonnet is great, too. Stays on better than most costumes. It does cover the ear completely, so if you have a dog that gets weird about that then be warned, but if your dog doesn’t care, then you’ll love it. It looks absolutely hysterical and is way better quality than you’d expect.”

Best lion-mane dog costume

Pet Krewe Lion Mane for Dog
$15 at Amazon

“Sent this to my ‘grand-dog’ Daisy Buttons and she looks adorable. Her coloring is caramel, so she matches a lion, furwise! The wig is super easy to put on and is nice and fluffy. Daisy didn’t run away when my daughter put it on her head (Daisy’s) the second time, so we know she was proud of her new look. I would definitely recommend the product and received it very fast and in great condition.”

Best skeleton dog costume

Casual Canine Glow Bones Dog Skeleton Pet Costume
From $17 at Amazon

“One of the cutest Halloween costumes hands down! Shipping was fast and it was packaged nicely. My boy looked so awesome in his costume and everyone loved it!! He’s an 80-pound pittie and it fit him perfectly! Of course, reading the other reviews was helpful, too. This material is nice and comfy with some stretch, so he was able to act, play, and sleep in this. They can go to the bathroom with no problems with this costume, too. Although he didn’t wear the hat, he was still the cutest-dressed pup!! We even took him trick-or-treating, and everyone who saw him complimented his awesome costume! It did glow, too, I made sure to keep it under the light before we went out. It is so easy to get on and get off and it stayed on him great!! He even took a nap in it like it wasn’t even on. My favorite fur-kid costume!”

Best dog tuxedo costume

Oscar Formal Tuxedo With Black Tie and Red Bow Tie
$20 at Amazon

“This is AMAZING! Very high-quality, satin-lined, double-knit suit. It is a perfect replica of a human tuxedo, complete with tails. I have a schnoodle that weighs 21 pounds and the large fit him perfectly. It even comes with a handbag to carry it in. It is a snap closure that is hidden by buttons. It stops just below his chest, allowing plenty of room for potty breaks without removing the suit; the tails cover over the back, leaving the hind quarters of Peanut open for No. 2 potty breaks without making a mess. The ties are adjustable with slide-lock enclosures. They secretly hide under the collar of the tux. I highly recommend this product. Mr. Peanut will be wearing it in his mommy’s wedding.”

Best Triceratops dog costume

Animal Planet PET20104 Triceratops Dog Costume
From $9 at Amazon

“You have a dog. Your dog’s head is sadly unadorned. What to do? What to do? You put this on your dog. Hilarity and fun for all ensues. The best part? Most dogs are chill with it, yo. You feel me, dawg? (Btw, this small hat fits just as well on a bichon frise as it does on one of those Chihuahua’s that looks like a baby Doberman.)”

Best Superman dog costume

Rubies Costume DC Heroes and Villains Collection Pet Costume
$13 at Amazon

“AWESOME COSTUME! My dog is always running around, so the cape is always flying right behind him. There is a Velcro attachment on the back, so it doesn’t have to be a pullover shirt. I got exactly what I wanted for a GREAT price. I got a medium size for my mini-pinscher, mindful that he is 13 pounds and larger for his breed.”
