ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Laika the dog is seriously styling in this AT-AT costume, created by Katie Mello.
(via Super Punch)
Where’s Bark Vader?
I don’t think the dog is so much seriously ‘styling’ as seriously ‘disliking’ how she’s strapped into all that junk.
In terms of time expenditures, how does this endeavor compare to dressing your dog up as Boba Fett?
I agree, he’s being treated quite ruffly.
Not being ” treated quite ruffly”. You don’t know the dog. He could move freely and actually liked running around in it.
Wait until someone trips him with a cable.
omg the puppy is so cute!
Way to make a very pissed off AT-AT ! :D
Do you have it in Rottweiler size ?
yes he is! YES HE IS SO CUTE
I’ve never seen a costumed dog that didn’t have this look of total shame on it’s face. Why people why?
Because it’s SOOO much fun. One halloween we put a bunch igs in lobster costumes, then put on our chef whites and put a big pot
She’s not ashamed; she’s looking warily for snowspeeders.
The dog looks completely freaked out.
Haha, not that it matters, but the dog’s name is “Bones”, … Kate works at “Laika”, an animation studio in Portland, OR.
To further clarify/correct- Matthew, It’s Katie, not Kate.
Nice job KT! Bones deserves a bone!
Well, that’s one way to slow down a greyhound.
This reminds me of listening to my wife and daughter while they’re watching Project Runway. They’re always annoyed when one of the male contestants designs something that they judge as being unwearable by normal women.
Maybe we should just let dogs design costumes for dogs.
I think the idea of a CAT-AT would be cute, too. But y’know, not to actually make one, cuz you can just imagine how that would look…
If you tried to put something like that on a cat, you would have your hands torn to shreds.
Dog is thinking:
“My master is going to be the first to lined up against the wall when the Dog Revolution comes….”
OK, so you have a dog pretending to be an AT-AT. Here’s an AT-AT pretending to be a dog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CVYOCMpJRY
Just a wee bit abusive.
Imagine what it does to fire hydrants.
nothing abusive about it. The dog loved being in it. His names Bones.
You really need TWO dogs in costumes…
I have 3 whippets. Mine would not tolerate anything like that on them.
And people wonder why I cheer when animals go on rampages…
How to freak out your best friend…
“Here come the rebels! I am so FUCKED!”
Look at my buckjump!
A fellow ig owner sent me a link to the Facebook page for the dog, Bones Mello, as well as the construction of the outfit
