These pug costumes were featured in a Star Wars-themed canine parade in Portland. Pugs have been an incredibly popular dog breed in recent years, gracing digital screens everywhere in memes, pug-dedicated Instagram and Tumblr accounts and more.

'Portland Brewing' decided to combine this love of pugs with Star Wars characters for a very niche but highly documented parade. The pug costumes are incredibly inventive, with some dedicated owners choosing to match their dog's outfits as they led them down the street.

The naturally scrunched faces of the breed make them have a perpetually unimpressed look, making their elaborate costumes look somehow more adorable. The pug costumes included characters such as Darth Vader, Ewok, BB-8, Jabba the Hutt and a series of spaceships. Pictures from the event were heavily shared though social media, creating consumer awareness for Portland Brewing.
