Do you think your four-legged Star Wars fan could pull off these looks?
Dog owners are famous for doing ridiculous things with their dogs. One of the things our pups have to put up with is us dressing them in costumes for various holidays. May 4, otherwise known as "Star Wars Day," is no exception! What better combination could there be? Star Wars is one of those iconic movies that will live forever and its fandom extends far beyond humans. If you're a Star Wars fan, that automatically makes your dog one, too! Just think how adorable your pup would look dressed up in a paw-some Star Wars costume, like Princess Leia, Darth Vadar, Yoda, or a Jedi. Seriously, what's cuter than a dog with a miniature lightsaber? We can't think of much!
If you don't want to go for a complete dog costume, you can always opt for a themed dog collar, bandana, shirt, or even a cute character dog hoodie. Here is some adorable inspiration if you have always dreamed of dressing your dog up as your favorite Star Wars character.
Perfect Princess Leia Star Wars Dog Outfit
Is there any outfit a Chihuahua can't pull off? This good boy is rocking his Princess Leia buns in the form of a stylish hat with an under-the-chin strap. He's even wearing the iconic white dress!
Fuzzy Ewok Dog Costume
This little fuzzy guy makes the best Ewok! Though they have a brief appearance in the Star Wars films compared to the other characters, they left quite the impression on movie watchers. We just can't get over this pup and his cute cane!
Best Luke Skywalker Dog
?Showing firm resolve is Skywalker's strong suit, and this pooch pulls it off perfectly. He looks ready to team up with Lando to take down Jabba the Hutt. Either that or he's contemplating if he is brave enough to drink some bantha milk...
We'll Take This Star Wars Darth Vader Anywhere!
This Darth Vader is almost too adorable to be working for the dark side. This leader of the Sith definitely needs some treats for sitting like a good boy next to Yoda. Such a good sport!
Almost As Cute As Yoda Himself
Straight out of a Star Wars movie, doggy Yoda does not need to use the force to get our attention. He is absolutely adorable strutting around in his costume. Those ears are just too much! Bounty hunters better watch out if they plan on catching this small dog.
Pups and Their Droid
Cutest sidekicks ever! Even though these two pups are not dressed in costume, they look festive on either side of their droid buddy.
Cutest Storm Trooper and Ewok Duo
Since when did the Ewoks throw in with the stormtroopers? Either way, this little guy looks great in his fun costume. He and his owner make the perfect pair!
Are There Dogs in Star Wars?
You bet! There are six different types of dogs in the Star Wars galaxy. However, they are not your typical fluffy, cute lap dogs. Instead, most of them look akin to something like a monster. The six Star Wars "dogs" are the Barghest, Charhound, Corellian Hound, Loth-wolf, Massiff, and Vulptex.
What Dog Breed Looks Like An Ewok?
While using a dog costume is one way to get a Star Wars dog, there are a few breeds that naturally look like some of your favorite furry characters. The Brussels Griffon dog breed was actually George Lucas' inspiration for the lovable but fierce Ewoks. If you are looking for your very own Ewok, look at Bichon Frises, Border Terriers, Lhasa Apso, or a Pekingese.
