Halloween Costumes Using Stuffed Animals
Halloween costumes using stuffed animals makes anyone the life of the party. Packaged costumes are fun and convenient, but they are also expensive. Why settle for ordinary? Make your own costume and be extraordinary! This post offers a few great ideas for how to use stuffed animals to put your costume over the top.
Crazy Cat Lady
The phone rang off the hook last year around Halloween. Customers called to get their hands on some stuffed cats. Most with the same idea in mind: Crazy Cat Lady. First of all, they got their hands on some rollers to do up their hair. In addition, they painted their faces with too much makeup. Finally, they slipped into their fuzzy house slippers and robe. Now, only one element remained: the cats. Using the affordable Cat Mini Flopsies by Aurora and a few safety pins, these daring ladies secured two, three, and even ten cats onto their costume. It really drives the image home. Halloween costumes using stuffed animals has never been so much fun!
Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz
Dorothy costumes are easy enough to come by if you know where to look. White shirt? Check. White socks? Check. Blue Dress? Check. Since Dorothy still needs her faithful sidekick, Toto, there’s only one thing left to do. Besides, she runs the risk of being mistaken for Belle from Beauty and the Beast without Toto. Remember, Belle wore a blue dress too. So find yourself a classic picnic basket, a Stuffed Cairn Terrier, and a pair of ruby slippers to click together. You’ll be off to see the Wizard with one of these Halloween costumes using stuffed animals!
Picking a Halloween costume and committing to it presents difficulty, but sticking with the classics provides an easy win. And you can’t go wrong with a pirate because everyone loves a jolly pirate! Still, details really set apart good costumes from great costumes. Consider all the accessories associated with pirates. Eye patches, peg legs, hooked hands, swashbuckler boots, and a cutlass. There are lots of ways to spruce up your pirate costume, but my personal favorite is the parrot. All of the best pirates carry a trusty parrot on their shoulder. Luckily for you, we offer a plethora of Stuffed Parrots and Stuffed Macaws from which to choose.
Raining Cats and Dogs
While sticking with the classics is a sure, safe bet, sometimes you need something a little outside the box. Check out this ‘Raining Cats and Dogs’ costume. Get your hands on a rain coat and boots, an umbrella, and some stuffed cats and dogs. Since I already gave you the link for the cats earlier, I’ve provided a link to our Dog Mini Flopsies by Aurora to pick from as well. Just fasten a few plush toys to your umbrella, and dress up in one of our clever Halloween costumes using stuffed animals everyone is sure to love.
You’ll see here a little girl dressed in scrubs and using a thermometer on a stuffed teddy bear. The possibilities as to which stuffed animal(s) to use are limitless. Find a doctor costume or make one yourself if you’re a DIY kind of person.
