Dr. Seuss Halloween Costumes

Cat In The Hat

Dr. Seuss’ most famous character is the Cat in the Hat, who is beloved by everyone, except the fish in the pot who wasn’t fond of the Cat’s “up with a fish” game. The recognizable feline wears a red bow and a red-and-white striped stovetop hat and he is known for causing trouble. Now you can bring the Cat to life at your home in one of our costumes.


The Cat always travels with his two friends—Thing 1 and Thing 2. These characters get into even more mischief than their feline friend, like flying kites inside the house. Fortunately, they are also great at cleaning things up too. They wear identical red outfits and have wild blue hair and make playful costumes for twins and best friends.

The Grinch

He couldn’t stop Christmas from coming, but the Grinch tried his best. The heartwarming tale of the green grumpy character is must-read or must-see every Christmas season. The original illustrations were black and white but Chuck Jones’ animated TV special made him green and he has been green ever since, which makes for a much more fun costume. The crabby Mount Crumpit dweller was based on Dr. Seuss himself who felt like he lost the Christmas spirit. The Grinch eventually found his Christmas spirit and so did Ted Geisel. Many others find their spirit every year when the read the book, watch the animated movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch or see other film and TV adaptations.

Who is Dr. Seuss?

Whether you live on Mulberry Street, Whoville, the Jungle of Jorn or somewhere else, you have heard of Dr. Seuss, the celebrated children’s author who wrote and illustrated many classic books that are as relevant today as they were when they were published.  

Theodor Seuss Geisel began his career as an illustrator and political cartoonist using the name Dr. Seuss. He published his first book, I think I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937 and worked in animation and film for the U.S. Army during World War II. One of his most famous books, Green Eggs and Ham, was written on a dare. He made a bet with his editor that he could write a book using only 50 words and he did. His last published book is Dr Seuss’s Horse Museum, which was found among his papers in 2013 and published 2019. Oh, the things you can think of when reading Dr. Seuss.
