I’ve always had mixed feelings about pet cosplay; on the one hand it’s so adorable and amazing! On the other hand I always wonder how the pet feels about being dressed up in that way. But true animal lovers know how to look for signs of discomfort or distress in their pets so dressing up their pets is all in good fun! I’ve found some amazing nerdy pet cosplay for you!
First up, Umbreon Dog! That is correct, this is an actual dog in this Umbreon costume and it is amazing. Yes the dog can see; the designer made the eyes out of a mesh material. Created by leafeon-ex on Deviant Art.
Bones the AT-AT Dog
How about this adorable AT-AT dog costume created by Kate Mello for her dog, Bones! You can check out Bones’ official Facebook page here.
Cat Battle Armor
Your kitty will be purrrrfectly set for battle in this amazing armor…okay I know, I know. I’m so punny! But seriously there’s probably not as many cats in costume as dogs because dogs tend to be way more tolerant about being dressed up than cats (this is coming from a crazy cat lady who used to get pleasure out of dressing her cats up in cabbage patch kid clothing as a child!) Cat Battle Armor created by savagepunk on Etsy.

Pug of Westeros
I may have gotten a wee bit excited over The Pugs of Westeros cosplay. The pugs named Blue, Bono, and Roxy are owned by Phillip and Sue Lauer. They have done other cosplay with their dogs such as Lord of the Rings but for this Game of Thrones fashion design, they teamed up with blinkbox to shoot the video and a photo gallery. Check out the video below and you can view the gallery on blinkbox here.
A cat dressed as Gyarados awhile back in my Pokemon Cosplay article. This cat cosplay comes from the same Tumblr page called Cat Cosplay of the Feline variety. I highly suggest checking out their Tumblr page to see the many costumes they have designed for their kitties. Though I do not play Magic the Gathering, this Chandra Nalaar costume really caught my eye! Not to mention the clever Magic card backdrop.
And finally, this Shiba Inu named Vox loves to cosplay! Vox has cosplayed as Overwatch characters such as Junkrat, Mercy (shown above), and D.Va. Not only does Vox cosplay, but she paints with a purpose! But I’m going to save that story for an upcoming Nerd It Forward, so stay tuned! You can check out OutsidetheVox on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
