Our kids are definitely into animals – all sorts! Dinosaurs, sea turtles, triops, dogs, and unicorns – you name it. Play these days usually revolves around dragons flying or cats doing tricks! So I wasn’t really surprised when my oldest son asked me last year if he could be a wolf for Halloween. I jumped on the occasion to create with him a unique costume that was fierce enough for a 7-year-old but not gory at all.
(1) work together to create it;
(2) keep the costume budget-friendly;
(3) make sure he was comfortable & warm (so important for Canada’s Octobers!);
(3) and have tons of fun!
Here we share how we went about making his DIY Wolf Costume. If you’re looking for a fun costume that’s affordable and mostly reusable, this one’s perfect!
Hair gel (for spikes & added drama) You could use this affordable hypoallergenic one (always paraben-free) or this toxin-free choice (aloe and witch hazel-based that’s also never tested on animals) (5)
