His name is Bones Mello and he may just have the best Halloween costume a dog could wish for; the famous All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT) from the Star Wars movies. Judging from the look on his face, I’m not convinced he’s loving the new look.
His owner, Katie Scott Mello, works at Laika, an Oregon based animation studio. Bones is one cool Greyhound with his very own Facebook page. Here you can see him both costumed up and au natural. There are also photos and detailed descriptions from the making of the Walker; if you fancy giving it a go.
Katie used light fabric for the legs and foam for the body casing and his laser gun helmet.
This takes me back to the funny Pet AT-AT Walker video by Patrick Boivin. When he was a kid, Patrick wanted his very own Walker. Check out his stop motion video: (I want one)
