Geckos may not seem like the most ferocious of beasts in the galaxy, but Redditor ConquerorOfCephalopods begs to differ. Behold the majesty of his AT-AT gecko outfit and tremble in fear.
As you can see from this wonderful costume, the lizard is pretty happy with his new mode of transportation. ConquerorOfCephalopods gives detailed instructions in a posting that he made on Imgur. He describes the materials – Poptart cardboard scaffolding and hand drawn pieces and parts attached. You can see some of the detailed shots in the gallery below, but you’re going to want to head over to Imgur to see the full instructions. The box that makes up the main body of the AT-AT has a top and bottom component so that he can lift his lizard friend safely in and out of the contraption.
It’s pretty cool to see what people around the internet can do with their pets to help them embrace the Star Wars fandom. Thanks to the uptick in Star Wars attention thanks to the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens release, we’ve recently been treated to this very special Stormtrooper for one:
If that doesn’t just make you go awwwwwww I don’t know what will. While Winston the Corgi is pretty adorable, it’s pretty awesome that this Redditor got his gecko involved. The gecko is pretty perfect for photoshopping as you can see from the photo at the very top of this piece.
Have you dressed your pets up as Star Wars characters recently? YOU HAVE? Please send us pictures or just tweet them to me at @bookoisseur because I need more pets in costume in my life.
