Gary the Snail from Spongebob Squarepants Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Gary the Snail is Spongebob’s beloved pet and housemate as he lives with Spongebob in a pineapple under the sea. This sea snail sounds and acts like the equivalent for a cat but he has other special abilities. It has been revealed that Gary could in fact understand the other characters and has a wide vocabulary and set of skills that he doesn’t usually show. He’s also the first cousin of Patrick, and they both share interesting psychic abilities.

Although Gary’s a pet, Spongebob treats him very well and like family since they’ve been together for a long time. Gary looks like a regular snail but has a light blue body with a green underbelly, long antenna eyes, and a pretty pink shell.
