Here's what you will need to make a Dalmatian Dog Costume for Halloween this year, perhaps to wear to that Halloween party on October 31st! This costume idea can be used by kids or by adults.
You will need:
-White T-Shirt or long shirt
-White long pants
-Black fabric paint
-Finger paint or face paint
-String, elastic or pins
Now follow these directions to assemble that homemade dog costume.
Use the black fabric paint to put spots on the white shirt and pants. This will represent the majority of the costume. Be sure to paint the front and back of the shirt. This may require time for each side to dry.
After the shirt and pants are painted, focus on the tail and ears. Using scissors, cut out from cardboard a tail and ears. Then, paint them with white paint. Allow them to dry, then add black spots with the black paint.
Once everything is dry, use string, elastic or pins to secure the cardboard tail to the waist of the pants. Connecting the ears tends to be slightly more difficult to do, however pinning or taping the ears to a headband and wearing that works well.
I hope these how to make a dog costume directions help you to make the cutest costume ever.
