Here is a custom homemade unique dinosaur costume made from a satin green material with cotton in the middle for comfort and looks. This is all hand sewn and each of the dinosaur spikes are handmade with a piece of cardboard in each spike then sewn together.
The dinosaur eyes are made from a large bouncy ball then painted. I also put black streaks on the dinosaur to give it that flared up look, so it is more realistic. The teeth are handmade and crafted by me from paper mache. Through the teeth hole is where my son can see out of. The dinosaur head believe it or not is the heaviest as it is made of paper mache. My 4 year-old son does well holding up the 67lb head. Esch toe and each finger also took a lot of time as they too had a lot of detail with the sewing.
The basket is handmade from straw/hay bales. The eggs in the basket again are paper mache and I bought a dinosaur and have the egg appeared to be hatching by cracking the egg myself. My son walks and I have an invisible string pulling his eggs around, my son loves his homemade unique dinosaur costume and I hope that others will too!
My son wanted to have a dinosaur themed 5th birthday party. So we looked for dinosaur costumes but his birthday is in March so we didn't find much. I decided to make him a homemade dinosaur costume myself.
I started with a funky green fabric that had dots raised all over it. I basically sewed a body suit with a zipper in the front. Then I made a huge tail and attached it from the back of the neck to the butt of the body suit. I stuffed the tail and spikes with pillow fluff from the craft store.
For the head I made sort of a hood that I tucked into the body suit. I sewed little felt triangles for teeth to the hood. I then painted eyes onto large buttons and sewed those on (although after I realized I could have used googly eyes).
This homemade dinosaur costume was a huge hit and he is wearing it for Halloween this year as well. I'm attaching a fishing line from the tip of the tail to the top back of the body suit (so it holds it up for him and then he can walk around outside without dirtying the tail).
My nephew loves volcanoes. When he asked me to help him make a costume this year, I knew exactly what to make him. He was so excited. I took his measurements and I was off and running with a Homemade Erupting Volcano Costume. He didn't see it until the day before Halloween. It took me about a week working on it off an on.
I used a hula hoop for the bottom. I cut brown and black material for the mountain and sewed it to a smaller top ring around his neck. I actually used a wire hanger and newspaper to construct the ring on the top. I found bright colors for the lava coming down the mountain and I improvised for the lava on his head by buying a hat. It's well insulated with flat batting sewn into the material.
He was super excited to wear it and he received many compliments during trick or treating. His younger brother can't wait to wear it next year.
He is 48" tall so it would fit a petite woman. It would look great with a dinosaur costume, a caveman costume, or any other natural disaster costume.
