Animals dressed as video game characters!


Just this past weekend the biggest cosplay convention in the country took place in sunny southern California: San Diego Comic Con. Every year over 130,000 people flock to the San Diego Convention Center to revel in all things "geek". With all the spotlight on people dressing up as comic book, anime, and video game characters, we thought our cosplaying fury friends deserved some attention as well.

Case in point, this adorable Shiba Inu doing his best Fox McCloud impression from Nintendo's Star Fox franchise.

Get out of my way, Slippy Toad! I have my own problems to deal with.

Piloting an Arwing without hands might be a challenge. After all, the real Fox McCloud has that whole anthropormorphic thing going for him.

OK, so we're in love with Shiba Inu McCloud, but what about these other stylish pets?

Pikachu kitten is all sorts of adorable. We just hope the owner used animal safe dye. (or maybe photoshop?)

Nintendo fans took a while warming up to cartoon Link from The Wind Waker. We think they'd have no problem with this pug edition.
