26 Animal Costumes To Spice Up Your Wardrobe


Having an animal costume in your wardrobe is almost as essential as your favorite pair of jeans. You can bring one of these bad boys out for fancy dress parties, especially Halloween. But let’s face it, you’re probably after an animal costume to make people laugh. Did you lose a bet by any chance? Anyway, let’s go on with our favorites:

1. Rubie’s Costume Co Jurassic World Inflatable Costume

T-rex Inflatable Dinosaur Costume

We’re starting off big with this impressive (and terrifying!) Jurassic World T-Rex costume. Although it is absolutely HUGE it actually doesn’t weigh much at all as the whole costume is inflatable, so it actually only weighs 1.6 pounds.

Most of that weight comes from the fan which is cleverly hidden out of sight and keeps the costume inflated. Not only is this costume a T-Rex, it is THE T-Rex from Jurassic World! The costume is officially licensed as a Jurassic World costume, so you’re dressing as the real deal.

This costume is men’s size and will fit a 42 to 44 inch jacket size and a 34 to 36-inch waist, so any smaller ladies looking to dress up like a dinosaur will unfortunately have to look elsewhere for a costume!

2. Bodysocks Inflatable Ride Me Dinosaur Carry On Costume

Inflatable Riding Dinosaur Animal Costume

From dressing up as an inflatable T-Rex to riding an inflatable T-Rex! This clever and hilarious costume makes it look like you’re riding on the back of a grinning T-Rex while you light up the party. Luckily, this costume is one-size-fits-all, as long as you’re an adult, so everyone can enjoy the fun.

The costume stays inflated with a fan that lasts up to seven hours, letting you enjoy yourself without having to worry about a deflated tail! Bodysocks have even included a free hat with the costume, so you can look the part as a real life Dino Wrangler!

3. Rasta Imposta Panda Costume

Fancy Dress Animal Panda Costume

This panda costume by Rasta Imposta seems like two costumes in one. Is it simply a panda costume, or is it a man-eating panda costume? You decide! The sharp claws and wide open mouth with a human poking out of it certainly don’t make it seem as cuddly as other panda costumes on our list!

However you choose to wear this costume, you can be sure that you’re buying a quality product. It breaks down in two four separate pieces (head, shirt, trousers and shoe covers) which makes going to the bathroom a lot easier!

4. Belle House Adult Giraffe Onesie

Animal Fancy Dress Giraffe Costume

This super cute onesise by Belle House not only looks like a great giraffe costume, but looks like a great outfit for lounging around on lazy days. It is super comfy because it’s made from polar fleece which is not only soft but warm too.

The baggy material makes it even comfier and also means that sizing is not a big issue. The costume comes in three sizes, small, medium-large and extra-large, and each size allows for a wide range of shape and size wearer. What’s even better about this costume is that it is machine-washable so at the end of the party you can throw it in the washer and forget about it!

5. California Costumes Men’s Gorilla Costume

Funny Animal Fancy Dress Gorilla Costume

This fabulously life-like gorilla costume will have Tarzan terrified and running back to the jungle when you rock up to the party! California Costumes have made this gorilla suit out of faux fur and separate mask, gloves and feet coverings.

16. Forum Novelties Men’s Scamper The Squirrel Costume

Funny Squirrel Outfit Fancy Dress Animal Costume

Forum Novelties have gone for a different take on a squirrel costume, which just goes to show how open to interpretation this woodland rodent is. This costume uses a plush faux fur material and comes with a separate headpiece, gloves and shoe coverings.

The headpiece tucks into the furry jumpsuit so not even an inch of human is revealed under the costume. The zipper is concealed in the back and hidden by the large stuffed tail, which is made from the same fabric as the rest of the body.

The mittens and shoe coverings are held on with elastic but still allow the full use of your hands, and the black mesh of the eyes allows the wearer to see out while concealing their face. This cuddly squirrel costume would make a great woodland mascot!

The huge costume is inflated with a fan, tail and all. You will need to climb in to the costume through a zipper in the back and make sure that the elastics at the hands and feet are secured before inflating the costume.

A great idea to take this costume to the next level would be to play dinosaur noises from a portable speaker, or even to blow smoke from an e-cigarette through the mouth.

18. Rubie’s Costume Deluxe Adult Chicken Costume
