Are you subject to dress code on paid or upgrades to first?

Obviously, if you're on employee travel, you need to dress nice but what about just normal people who pay for their first class or receive an elite upgrade? am I out of line for wearing a raccoon hoodie with ears and big fluffy tail?

am I out of line for wearing a raccoon hoodie with ears and big fluffy tail? - That's out of line in any scenario.

There are no formal dress codes, except for non revenue passengers, but there could be rules or guidelines on decency - airlines could object to offensive dress items.

Probably not. But best not sit next to a bobcat, coyote or other natural predator.

Yes, you never know when someone will be travelling in first with their "support" bobcat.

Normally, most US carriers do not require a dress code for rev or nonrev travel, but even DL would frown with that get-up. I'd worry that the airline club won't let you in the door...I'm thinking "hungry like the wolf". I will tell you that raccoons can be VERY VERY MEAN (I've trapped close to 20). +1 for wirewiper!

I've worn it before, lots of giggles but don't want to be breaking a written or unwritten rule. Its Halloween season so I should look "normal"

You're right for rev travel. However, for non-rev travel it depends on the type of travel. FF tickets are no problem, but Travel Agents on non-rev tickets are required to abide by the same dress code as the airline employees.

I think the the tail maybe a bit much but like the rest of the outfit.

Why? I usually travel for work in jeans or shorts and a hoodie.
