May the Fourth Be With You: The Best DIY Star Wars Pet Costumes

As far as unofficial holidays go, Star Wars Day is pretty great.

You can marathon the films, quote the best lines, and even get your pets involved. We’ve scoured the internet for some of our favorite dogs in Star Wars costumes, from the intricate to the east to replicate!

Just remember, if your dog will be joining in the festivities, make sure that he isn’t stressed, his ears are left uncovered, and that he isn’t left unattended while in costume. Only a son of a bantha would endanger their pet for the sake of a costume!

Don’t Trip the AT-AT Walker!

This artist creatively turned her dog into an AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back. The vehicle was famously defeated on Hoth with a cable wrapped around its legs, but given a leash, we have a feeling that this AT-AT would be the one causing the tripping!

Unleash His Inner Wookiee

If you’re not very creative, try choosing a look inspired by your dog! This one only requires a belt and some grooming. So easy, a Wookiee could do it!

Who Knew Porgs Could Get Any Cuter

Here’s an adorable and easy-to-make costume that is sure to get attention! How could you not what your own pet Porg? Be careful though; no one can resist sad Porg eyes.

The Best Stormtrooper

Maybe your pooch leans a bit more toward the Dark Side. In that case, check out this incredible Storm Trooper costume! This is one not to miss!

All Hail Princess Leia!

We can’t forget one of the Alliance’s greatest leaders, Princess Leia! This costume would be easy to replicate with scrap fabric if you wanted to make a simple version. If there’s a Leia, you do think there’s a Sitta and a Staya too?

For Your Ewok-sized Friend

Last but not least, here is a great tutorial for making your very own Ewok costume. It even includes a staff, perfect for chasing away invaders! We think it’s pretty Endor-able!

 

Meet the Author: Thomas Mulcahy

Thomas can't remember a time when his household didn't have a four-legged member of the family. When our Giant Schnauzer isn't digging around for rodents to play with, she's patiently waiting for food to drop to the floor or barking at the mailman. Thomas now swears by Schnauzers as being the best breed ever—they don't shed and they're the smartest and most entertaining dogs he's ever met. Plus the Giants make great wrestling partners.
