Star Wars Bantha Costume for Dogs

There are plenty of costumes that you can get for your dog that will be sure to have everyone laughing and talking about how cute he is. Some of these options include costumes that feature peg-leg pirates, police officer or firefighter costumes and even jailbird costumes.

But the most popular costume for dogs this year that everyone wants is the Star Wars Bantha Costume for Dogs. If you and other members of your family went as characters from the movie franchise, you’d have the perfect family costume set that could include your pet.

This costume is more suitable for a dog that’s about medium sized. Though it’s available for larger dogs, the sizing does tend to run a little small. The costume is designed to look like the body of a Bantha.

The top piece travels down the length of your dog’s body and fastens beneath the underside of the dog. The hood of the costume matches the torso part. This hood fastens around the dog’s chin and on either side of it are the large, curved horns like the Banthas have.

These horns are tan in color and have stripes all around. There is a Tusken Raider figure that comes with this costume. This piece is situated on top of the torso part of the costume so that it looks like the Raider is sitting on a saddle.

It even has its feet in stirrups. This figure is dressed in the light tan tunic with the dark brown lines across the chest piece. The face of the figure looks just like the Tusken Raiders from the movie.

The hands of the figure are holding reins that attach to the back of the Bantha piece. The saddle portion of the costume has a bag along with a saddle roll on the rear of it. There are other dog costumes that you can get to dress your pet up like Star Wars characters.

One of these is the Star Wars Wookie costume. The Rubies Costume Star Wars Collection Pet Costume features a jacket for your dog that fits around his neck and is made to look like the Wookie body.

The headpiece has the cute little furry ears and this piece fastens under the dog’s chin. The sizing on this costume tends to run large. You can also find Halloween costumes to dress your dog up as a Storm Trooper or as Yoda. Princess Leia costumes for dogs are available as well.

Lion Mane Costume for Dogs

There are plenty of costumes that you can buy that can turn your four footed friend into a small, medium or large dinosaur. There are even costumes you can get for your pet that feature human characters such as pirates from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

But the most popular costume this year is the Lion Mane Costume for Dogs. This costume will have your friends and family laughing out loud and will bring a smile to all who see your dog wearing it.

The costume is easy to slip on and off your dog for his comfort and even larger size dogs can wear it. Before Halloween arrives, if your dog isn’t used to wearing anything on his head, you’ll want to take a few days and get him to wear it for a short length of time.

This way, he’ll be adjusted to the presence of the mane by Halloween. The mane is the same wide, bushy brown as a lion’s mane. When it’s worn by large dogs, especially dogs with light colored fur like golden retrievers, from a distance, the dog will fool people into thinking they’ve seen a small lion.

This mane is adjustable so even if you don’t have a large dog, the costume will still be the perfect fit. The costume fits because it has a drawstring closure. All you have to do is tighten or loosen the drawstring as needed.

This is a top quality costume made of polyester and fur fibers. If you’ve already used this popular idea for Halloween, you do have other choices. There is the Animal Planet PET20104 Triceratops Dog Costume, which is too cute.

This costume features the head of the horned dinosaur. The skin part of the costume has a brown background and is designed to look just like the skin of a dinosaur.

It has the two long horns on either side and the short horn in the middle of the headpiece. A velcro strap at the bottom of the headpiece is how the costume remains in place.

Another dinosaur costume that you can get for your pet is the Animal Planet PET20109 Raptor Dog Costume. This one will turn your dog into the cutest predator on the planet.

The costume consists of the foam headpiece and body. The head of the costume has the reptilian eyes and white teeth that rest on your dog’s forehead. The front feet of the costume extend outward and will sway as your dog walks.

The costume slips on over your dog’s head and there are two places for your dogs front paws. The back paws are left free.
