Hello. Does this costume mainly velcro around the chest and the abdomen? Is it attached to the piece that straps to the dogs head or is the head piece separate?
Answer by ChewyAug 29, 2018
The velcro straps are both around the abdomen, and the head piece is connected to the rest of the costume only by the two strings.

i would love to get this for my orange tabby cat, he weighs about 11lbs, would it fit?
Answer by ChewySep 07, 2019
While this costume is one size fits most, it maybe too large and heavy for a small cat to comfortably wear.

Not as good as we hoped

I read other reviews and someone said it would fit a dog with a small head and sausage like body and I thought this would be perfect for our Basset Hound because he fits those specifications. Though, this still didn’t work. The guy on top won’t stay sitting up so this is being returned.

One Size Doesn't Fit All

I have a medium sized dog (big belly) and I can't get the costume to stay on. The head gear is very small and looks like it's made for a small (corgi) dog. There is absolutely no way the straps will fit around her neck, which means the little sand dude won't sit upright. I really wanted this to work but unfortunately I will have to return it. The product seems to be made well and would likely work really well on a smaller breed.

One size DOES NOT fit all

Unless your dog has an absolutely TINY head and a large sausage-like body, this won't work. I don't know what kind of dog they designed this for, but the costume didn't fit any of the dogs I tried it with. Definitely don't buy this. Pretty disappointing, if they adjusted the fit it would be a super cute costume! Chewy is great, and refunded me the price of the costume.

Cute but doesn’t fit

We bought this for our husky as we are all doing a Star Wars theme for Halloween - the costume was cute but was nowhere near able to fit my dog. The straps around her stomach were way too big and the hat portion was tiny. I wish it would have fit but altering it wouldn’t even work.

Bantha Costume

This is so cute but the Bantha is very soft and doesn’t “stand up” at all so other than the cute little hood you can’t tell what the costume is.

One size doesn’t fit all

I bought it for my German Shepard but it is too small. It’s too big for my shihtzus as well. It’s a cute costume for a medium size dog.

While I had high hopes for this costume, I found that the one size fits all concept is far from true. I have a roughly 32 pound corgi and had to have the two straps around her belly resewn to much small dimensions. Also, the head piece is far too small for her, so I can only imagine how bad it would be for large dogs. Because of the head piece being so small, the horns don't hang correctly and look more like tusks. Lastly, the rider needs to have something stiff inserted in order to keep him upright. He just falls backwards and pulls the entire thing to the side and drags on the floor. The only positive is that this does look like a sand person and bantha, but functionally, it needs a lot of work. If you are adept at sewing, you might be able to correct these things for your dog.

Doesn't work as well as pictured

The costume in theory is great but the rider doesn't sit well and with every body shake the rider ends up upside down under dogs belly

I wouldn’t buy again.

The costume is of ok quality, but the straps to the outfit are horribly off. The head straps was to small and the body straps to large. I had to tailor the outfit to fit my dog. I was extremely disappointed and I didn’t have time to return and get a new outfit before Halloween.
