Katie Mello Designs an AT-AT Costume for Dogs with a Geeky Personality

Since Halloween is coming up in a few short weeks, it wouldn’t hurt to dress the dog up in the AT-AT costume by Katie Mello -- after all, it’s wonderfully geeky and it gets the pet into the holiday spirit.

Katie Mello decided to give her canine Bones a geeky makeover with the AT-AT costume. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, the AT-AT is basically the Walker that was famously seen in The Empire Strikes Back and made an appearance in Return of the Jedi. Mello does a great job replicating the futuristic tank by carving out the top armor as the main component of the canine costume, complete with the shooters that function as the helmet. For the legs, she uses a light fabric to replicate the mechanical legs of the AT-AT. After seeing this, George Lucas would definitely be proud of his legacy.
