Make Homemade Animal Costumes
by Susan Elliott
You can unleash your inner animal whether cosplaying or dressing up for a costume party. Simply don you own homemade animal costume and let the party begin! Animal costumes are often some of the cutest costumes around. Small children and adults alike look adorable dressed like their favorite animals. One of my daughters often wears different kinds of animal hats to show-off her animal wild side.
Most of the costume tutorials below utilize pre-made pieces like sweat suits. There is a little bit of sewing involved and craft skills, but really these costumes are easy to make, and oh-so cute!
I hope you enjoy making them, and feel free to share your pictures with me in the comment section! Click on the links below for the tutorials.

"You will buzz up barnyard chatter when you wear your handmade llama costume created from yarn and papier-mache. You can construct a llama costume worthy of a children's theater production or costume contest. Wear the llama costume with black socks or hiking boots, and add a serape or sombrero for an "Emperor's New Groove"-inspired llama."
