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?
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!
Last year I hacked up a Chewie 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.
I even had a crack at getting her to wear a helmet I found on eBay…
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!
