Finding And Making Dinosaur Costumes

By Bob Anderson

At Halloween you’ll find many kids and adults in dinosaur costumes. Dinosaurs are extremely popular with kids and you can realize that your kid need a dinosaur themed party, making you need a dinosaur costume at other times then just Halloween. There are several differing kinds of dinosaur costumes at a selection of costs.

If you totally cannot find the costume you’re looking for then you can order a dinosaur costume from Amazon. Amazon has toddler’s dinosaur costumes, kid’s dinosaur costumes and even adult dinosaur costumes. You can transform yourself into a Tyrannosaurus Rex, dragonsaurus, lovable lil dinosaur, Pterodactyl or kidosaurous. These costumes are ideal for trick or treating on that cold October evening as they’re like a jumpsuit.

Another wonderful place to have a look for dinosaur costumes is on eBay. You will find costumes that are used but still in first-class condition as well as brand spanking new dinosaur costumes. You even may be ready to find giant mascot size dinosaur costumes. Purchasing a second user costume on eBay can be a good option if you’re only planning on using it annually.

You can also get truly creative with your dinosaur costumes if you’ve got the time and desire. You can build your own exoskeleton and then drape it with fabric. This creates a big dinosaur and you’ll need to be powerful to hold it. Try coming up with it so that the weight is on your shoulders or sits on your back like a back pack. Balance is always key with giant costumes so take care you have it balanced so you can walk without difficulty.

You may quickly and simply construct your own dinosaur costume. You’ll need a couple of sweats that are an identical color. Then a massive piece of felt to construct the tail. Once you made the tail you stuff it with rags and attach it to the back of the sweatpants. To make the tail you want 2 pieces of fabrics and then stitch them together. If you are not handy with a needle then get some powerful glue.

When you have a tail you can cut out some teeth from white froth and attach them to a brim of a visor or baseball cap. Stick some eyes on and you are done. This is the simplest of dinosaur costumes but if you are in a rush then it’ll do and you kid will still have a fab time as a dinosaur.

You may simply make a pterodactyl costume though this may take some more time. Have a sweat suit and construct the tail as indicated. You may need 2 more pieces of fabric that are about one yard in size each. Do a diagonal cut up the center without cutting the piece in 2. Then you attach one side to the sweatshirt arms and take the other piece and attach them in the middle of the back, voila, you have wings.

You’ll be able to find and make your own dinosaur costumes. Sometimes the more complicated the costume the more it’ll cost. You’ll find your favorite dinosaur and if not you may have fun creating your own dinosaur costume.
