My puppies are so good and understanding of my need to create a costume for everyone that lives in the house.  Cheesy

So, per my boyfriend's request I made them Han Solo and Chewie costumes.  The pups were the hit of our party on Saturday evening.

Here they are as Chewbaca (Mr. Big) and Han Solo (The Cheat).

love these costumes.
Your puppies don't seem to mind wearing clothes, any dog i've met always wants to gnaw any hat/coat off! The Cheat has the right kind of scoundrel-y ears one up one down! Tongue

Those are brilliant! And very funny - Chewie looks so realistic, and I love the details on Han, like the holster.

I absolutely love these costumes!  Especially because Chewbacca looks just like my Chihuahua, Jesus.  Great job.

HA ha... I can barely compose myself to type.  I keep scrolling up to look at Chewbacca and just DIE laughing each time.  It's very realistic.  My God, that is the most brilliant dog costume.  I'm hitting "this rocks" and going to send this link to everyone I know.  We all dress our dogs up for Halloween.  I love details you put into it, too... such as the holster on Hans and the bullets on Chewy.   Cheesy  Thanks for making my day.

My friend has a Shih Tzu that looks like Chewbacca when her fur is trimmed.  She doesn't make that crazy noise though.

Thanks everyone for your amazing comments!  I'm glad other people are getting enjoyment from the puppies.  Mr. Big (Chewie) is particularly fond of wearing clothes.  The Cheat (Han) doesn't like it quite as much, but it quite tolerant.  Cheesy

The only unfortunate thing is that I don't think I'll ever be able to out do myself on these costumes.  They're going to have to be Chewie and Han every halloween for the rest of their lives.

I can NOT believe your dogs sit so well.  Mine would be rolling on the floor in fits if I even had the sparkle in my eye to dress her up.  They are ADORABLE!

Those costumes are great!  Especially chewie- and they look like they're actually tolerating them.  My dog wouldn't handle it quite as well.

Those are the best pet costumes I've ever seen! My hubby won't let me have a dog - I'm gonna use these pics to convince him! "See, we can dress him up as Chewie and tell everyone he's a wookie!" Haha.

Excellent job!
