A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…Bring out your dog’s inner nerd with this Chewbacca costume. A great option for dogs who don’t love dress ups – this hoodie slips on easily.
As for you, it’s then just a matter of who you want to be…Han Solo? Princess Leia? Yoda? But choose wisely my friend, as anyone dressed as Jar Jar Binks is going to score low on the candy front.

Go wild with a safari theme and the cutest of all giraffes by your side.

Soda I’m talking to you!)
As for you, dress it up with a bit of glamour ala Katy Perry in Roar – or go old school with a safari suit.
