Is it... a real dog?
volko-dav's avatar
Yep! This is our dog Dante.

oh wow, what a beauty! what kind of breed? 
volko-dav's avatar
Thanks! He's a Samoyed. It's a sled dog breed from Russia. Kind of like a very fluffy, all-white husky. They're very active and very friendly, and kind of stubborn. :)

You can check him out on facebook at www.facebook.com/dante.kogan and there are a few more cosplay pics of him at www.facebook.com/VolkodavCospl…

Probably because you can't see his whole body. It's more obvious in this one:

how did you placed those fluffs by his leggs? o_o''? it looks SOOOOOOOO awesome! 8D

Thanks. ^_^ The 'wings' are built out of a fur fabric that happens to look very similar to his fur. There's a detailed build blog here, but in brief, all the bits are fitted to a harness that buckles around him. It's quite lightweight, and surprisingly easy to put on (the whole costume takes 5 minutes, including face paint.)

D'aww that is awesome :3 This is why I want a white Shiba Inu. Course mine would be called Chibi :p

Heh, awh. :) We named ours way before we thought of cosplaying him as Ammy, but I think Dante fits him quite well. One of these days, we'll make him a tiny red coat with matching guns and a sword.

Good luck, post photos if you do it. :)
