Stop Everything: We’re Obsessed with Kiba The Cosplaying Corgi

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my GOODNESS alert the masses: cuteness overload is about to commence! Because we’ve stumbled upon Kiba the Cosplaying Corgi and our hearts have simultaneously melted, exploded, and been born again from the ashes. Because the only way to make dressing up your dog on a regular basis an acceptable act is to do it full-out geek style: by forcing them to embody characters from some of our favorite things.

Like it wasn’t enough adorability that Kiba was a corgi (the happiest and most precious of pooches DON’T FIGHT US ON THIS YOU WILL LOSE FERREAL), his owners managed to up the cuteness factor by dressing the dang creature up as anime and video game characters. Something we can all get behind, regardless of your feelings on either of the subjects, because oh mah gaawd, cosplaying animals might just be most adorable thing on the planet, no question, full stop. (Whoops is our hyperbole showing again?)

Kiba, who has a Facebook page like any good Internet celebrity animal, lives in Arizona and frequently attends conventions with his owner. But if you thought that was the end of Kiba’s achievements, oh how wrong you are! BOL! (That’s shorthand for Bark Out Loud, which is dog for LOL.) Kiba is also a therapy dog, meaning he also does good in addition to lookin’ good when pretending to be a Ninja Turtle or something equally as dorktastic (in the best way).

Thankfully, you don’t simply have to take our word for it — you can peep some of Kiba’s impressive outfits below!

So, which Kiba get-up is your favorite? And what should he cosplay as next? Leave your suggestions in the comments.
