Amazon Enigmas: Star Wars Halloween Pet Costumes
Halloween, also if you didn’t know, is next month which means it is time to
embarrass dress up our four-legged friends. Amazon features plenty of…interesting…pet costumes for Halloween. Why not go the Star Wars route when it comes to picking a Halloween costume for your dog or cat? (Images link to the item on Amazon)
Dressing your dog up like a Star Wars character is great and all, but nothing beats using your pet to recreate a special effect from one of the films. In the first Star Wars film, the special effects crew dressed up elephants to play banthas, the mounts of the sand people.
My elephant ran away, so a dog is the next best thing thanks to this Star Wars Bantha dog costume. There’s even a tiny sand person so other folks don’t think the dog is a goat! Or ram. Yes, ram.
All Terrain Dog Transport?
Organic mounts are so yesterday. It’s all mechanical these days, son. Dress your dog up as one of the most beloved Star Wars special effects ever: an AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back. Just make sure to watch out for tow-cables (or leashes).
Han’s Best Friend
Now any dog (or maybe even small child) can be your Wookiee co-pilot with this Star Wars Chewbacca Dog Hoodie. I love the concept of this costume: “Y’know what, dogs aren’t fuzzy enough. Let’s dress one up as a Wookiee.” Further reading: Wookiees are a favorite topic of discussion in our home.
Buns of Fun
Rounding out our galaxy of Star Wars Halloween pet costumes is this darling…uh…wig-thing. Fulfill your cat’s [
nightmare dream of dressing up as Princess Leia with this Star Wars hair bun wig-thing. Just watch out for those fully operational cat claws.
If buns aren’t your thing, you can always go a different route when dressing your cat up like Princess Leia.
