RAWR! This year I decided to be a dinosaur for Halloween so I could spend the entire night RAWRING! I didn't buy a single thing to make this Woman's T-Rex Dinosaur Costume but instead had it lying around the house.
Step one: to make the shape of the mouth I used a plastic container, the mouth is a plastic container lid, the head was a fabric container in a square shape. Then using packaging tape and plastic bags I created the round head. I then glue gunned down a green towel around the shaped head. NOW YOU HAVE A HEAD!
Step two: the mouth I lined with white fabric and used red fabric for a tongue. The teeth I cut out of small Styrofoam balls. The eyes are the same Styrofoam balls.
Step Three: to make the tail using the same towel I glue gunned the shape of the tail together then I used a wire hanger to make it stand up straight then stuffed the tail with newspaper.
Step Four: using the towel again I made it run down my back to my bum, and glue gunned on elastic bans to go around my arms and waist.
Step Five: to make the spike I glue gunned the shape out of white fabric and stuff it with plastic bags. Then spray painted them pink. I then painted the entire thing a darker green to make it scarier.
NOW YOU HAVE A DINOSAUR RAWR Just for a added touch I printed off a Jurassic Park Sign and Wrote "Property of" on it. The costume was SO MUCH FUN! and everyone loved it. It took about 6 hours to make. You need 2 full green towels and a lot of glue sticks!
Good Luck and Happy Costume Making !

I spent 2 nights sewing this Velociraptor Costume. I knew I wanted to be a dinosaur for a while. My roommate Sean and I even practiced dino poses in our spare time. (I think it all started with an intense love for Barney and Jurassic Park.)
I found a pattern for a awesome kangaroo costume and altered it. I added a thicker tail, because of that I had to add some internal support. That tail was HEAVY, but it was really important to me that the tail could move well. I ended up stuffing the inside of the costume with couch pillows to make the right silhouette.
Being a dinosaur was really great, but the next day I had little to no voice. I guess I did too much roaring and shrieking. My costume took quiet a beating too. I guess that's what happens to a Velociraptor at a University of Illinois Halloween Party!
