Darth Vader Star Wars Dog Costume

All black and ultra cool looking Darth Vader costume.

The costume includes a headpiece, cape with belt, and chest piece jumpsuit with decorative stuffed arms, and the jumpsuit is worn over a pet’s front legs.

For sizing you probably want a size larger than what you think you’ll need. So, for a medium dog, get a large costume.

Something else to note is that the helmet on this costume is quite poor quality. It’s sometimes unusable with the costume as it’s small and cheaply made.

Rubies Beetlejuice Dog Costume

Awesome looking Beetlejuice white and black jacket, and crazy hair wig.

You can brush up and use hair spray on the hair yourself to get some more crazy looks and styles going.

You fasten this dog costume with velcro, and it has leg sleeves at the front for your dog’s legs.

Comes in 4 sizes – small through to extra large.

Two slightly annoying things about this costume are the sleeves are slightly long, and the wig might not stay on your dog’s head for an extended time.
