Costumes for pets have really come a long way. Not only are the designs clever, but many of them are remarkably well made now. That means you'll get more than one use out of them, if your pet will tolerate wearing it, giving you more bang for your buck. Some of the cutest costumes for pets to choose from this year are characters from the wildly popular Star Wars franchise. Check out the five best Star Wars costumes for pets, and may the force be with you this Halloween.
1. Ewok Costume for Dogs
Transform your pup into a fearless biped from Endor with this cute Ewok illusion costume that comes with a spear. This particular version of this costume is part of the Petco Exclusive Star Wars Pet Fans Collection, and it's actually way cuter than other Ewok costumes out there.
2. Bantha with Tusken Raider Costume
Can't you picture your dog crowned with an impressive set of curling horns and a Tusken raider atop his or her back as they trudge across the vast desert sands of Tatooine? Well, with this super cute Bantha pet costume from Rubies it's easy to envision.
3. Dewback with Stormtrooper Costume
Another Star Wars costume that features a mounted rider is this fun Dewback costume for dogs with a stormtrooper high astride its back. Rubies makes one, which you can get on Amazon, and eXXtra Store carries their own version. They're nearly identical, but the eXXtra Store costume has a scale pattern on the fabric.
4. Princess Leia Costume
There are a few makers of this popular Star Wars character, so you'll be able to find Princess Leia at brick and mortar stores like Target and Walmart, or you can order one online from a number of pet and costume retail sites. The only real difference is some of the costumes have a few more designs on the white robe and some of the head pieces use darker hair than others.
5. Yoda Costume for Pets
What Star Wars costume compilation would be complete without Yoda? Yes, he's been around for years. In fact, he was probably the first character to turn up as a pet costume, but he's a fan favorite, especially with pug and French bulldog owners. Those adorable smashed faces lend themselves so well to the costume. Because there are so popular, you'll have to do your homework and find the one that you feel is the best.
While these are by far the cutest Star Wars costumes for pets, in my humble opinion, they are by no mean the only ones available. Currently, you can find Darth Vader, R2D2 and Chewy, as well as Jedi, stormtrooper and At-At dog and cat costumes, too.
