Happy Star Wars Day folks!

May the Fourth be with you!

Those of you who know me may know I dress my long suffering rescue pooch Kyra up as Star Wars characters every year.  When I got her, I was told her birthday was in early May, so decided that day might as well be May the fourth & may as well dress up as a Star Wars character to celebrate!

She loves it, obvs…

As always, I’m not sure I’ve been able to top Darth Kyra, but this year, guess who’d like to wish you a happy Star Wars Day?

Introducing: ‘Kyrace Windu’!

(Mace Windu was one of the lesser known Jedi, played by Samuel Jackson in Episode II)

Last year was “Kyrey”!

And she looks just as pleased about being dressed up in a toddlers fancy dress costume and hanging out in a local golf course bunker as you’d expect!

The year before I hacked up a Chewbacca Rucksack to make ‘Chewbarka’!

The year previous she brought things up to date as The Force Awaken’s ‘Kyra Ren’, Han & Leia’s naughty son.

Han Solo Carbonite Star Wars Dog Costume,

The year before found her as ‘Kyran Solo’, encased in carbonite

Another year she was ‘Princess Kyra’! Mainly ’cause she’s a little short to be a Storm Trooper.

One year she played an Ewok (aka ‘Kyrawok’) made out of an old charity shop skirt & a large teddy bear!

…The Ewok headgear also doubled up as a Jedi Knight’s robe, AKA Kyrobi Wan Kenobi…

These aren’t the treats I’m looking for.

… and the first – and arguably the best – outfit: Darth Kyra!  At last, the circle is complete.

And here are a few out-takes, cause eventually, even food bribes don’t make up for the humiliation…

She wasn’t entirely convinced as an Ewok either!  But she sees plenty of treats for her shame.

I can’t see what her problem is really; I personally love a spot of dressing up…

Happy Star Wars day one and all!
