Halloween is coming up, and if you have a pet boa constrictor, you may be wondering what fun costume you can put them in! While snakes don’t necessarily need clothes, a cute costume can make for adorable photos and a fun way to include your snake friend in the festivities. Here are 5 fun Halloween costume ideas to try for your boa constrictor:
Turn your boa into a Wild West cowboy or cowgirl! Get a little cowboy hat or bandana and carefully tie it around the top of their head or neck. Add a little cowboy vest or bandana around their middle. An alternative is to get a stuffed animal cowboy and have your snake curl around it. Yeehaw!
Hot Dog Boa
Who says hot dogs have to be eaten? With a hot dog costume, your snake can become the main course! Get a plush hot dog bun and hot dog pieces – use velcro or loose stitching to secure them softly around your snake’s body. You can stick the bun on their head and the hot dog along their back.
Is your snake a hero? Give them a heroic super snake disguise. Use a red baby onesie or soft t-shirt and a yellow felt cut-out for a cape. If you can find a small mask, place it over their eyes. Draw an “S” for their chest and they are ready to save the day!
For a fall-themed costume, turn your snake into a pumpkin! Use orange fabric to create a pumpkin top to stick on their head and green fabric for the stem. You can also put together fabric strips to create a plaid wrap like a pumpkin stem around their body. Get creative with paints and fabrics!
Wrap your snake up like an Egyptian mummy. Carefully and loosely wrap white gauze around their body, leaving space for them to move comfortably. If you want to get fancy, paint the gauze with tea or coffee to make it look aged. Add some finishing touches like a pharaoh’s headdress on their head. Your snake will look ancient and spooky!
Creating a fun costume for your boa constrictor is a great way to include them in seasonal celebrations. Just be sure their costume is comfortable and doesn’t restrict their movement. What will you dress up your snake friend as this Halloween? Get creative and have fun making festive memories with your exotic pet!
