This homemade costume for groups entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 1st place in the Best Children's Costume nomination!

A word from Mary, the 'Jurassic World Dinosaurs' costume creator:

After watching the Jurassic World movie and playing the video game, my three boys came up with the idea and asked me to make it for them! Indominous Rex is worn by my 11 yr old, Keith. Blue the velociraptor is worn by my 8 yr old, Mason. And his twin brother, Micah is wearing Delta the velociraptor!

I shaped craft foam sheets and masking tape for the head shapes. I covered them with fabric which the boys chose for each of their costumes. The body and tails were made from craft plastic canvas sheets that I shaped and segmented in order for them to move when they walk! I painted plastic Christmas ornaments for their eyes. Sturdy foam and tape for their claws and toes. Foam makeup sponges for Indominous Rex's spikes! Paint, markers, and thread used for accents.


The boys were the hit of the Halloween night in the neighborhood trick or treating!!! Many kids and adults gave them lots of compliments! "Best ones they saw" , "Wow, your mom made this!" "Awesome!" My family and friends said I out-did myself again. One said I should patent these! Another high school friend said my Home Economics teacher would be so proud!

Awesome costumes! Incredible craftsmanship -- and impressive ability to construct such details from the mind into the real world! I've seen "dress up sets" marketed as those from Jurrasic World, but these blow them away! Your boys are lucky to have such a creative mom

Thank You!

My son is obsessed with dinosaurs and this is the best costume I've ever seen! Did you sew the body or just sew the tail onto some clothes?

#5 comment by Mary September 5, 2016

HI Samantha! Thanks! I made the heads by molding and covering craft foam with fabric. I made shirts and pants from just copying some of their clothes. And I just added a tail to the seam in the back of pants! Pretty much just wing it as I go! Lol!

Would you ever sell these? I would buy an indominous Rex from you in a heartbeat!!

#7 comment by Tara September 19, 2016

I'm working on similar costumes for my son's. But I'm struggling with the bathroom issue. Any suggestions?

#8 comment by Mary September 21, 2016

Hi Julie! I do still have the Indominous Rex costume! I sold the velociraptors! Contact me at maryscullin[at]yahoo.com to discuss more if interested! Thanks !

My son wants to be a Jurassic world T-Rex, how did you get the tail to stick out behind the body?

#10 comment by Mary Scullin September 30, 2016

HI Tara! I just made it like a pair of pants to slip on or off! I did not want to make it a jumpsuit for that exact reason! Bathroom breaks are a must! Good luck! :)

HI Rachel! I used craft plastic canvas sheets (like cross-stitch fabric but only its sturdy plastic). I sewed a piece of the plastic from just below waist to top of butt flat against the outside of their stretchy shorts (which is inside and how they pull them on and off).
Then a made a cone shape which I attached to the flat shape on the shorts. This is what made the tail strong and stand out from the body. It was very comfortable for them. Then I just made more cylinder shapes of plastic to make the lengths of the tail. Just made them smaller/skinnier as I went. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Do you sell any of these costumes? They are so awesome!

#13 comment by Alison October 2, 2016

Do you have any of these left? I am willing to purchase one. My son has been obsessed with dinosaurs since he was a toddler.

#14 comment by Angel October 4, 2016

Hello do you have any of these left? I'm really interested in buying one from you?

#15 comment by Mary October 4, 2016

Hi there! Sorry everyone! I have sold all 3 of these costumes! Thank you for asking!

#16 comment by Emily October 6, 2016

Hi Mary,
I am building my son a similar costume. What material did you use to cover their face? Is it a shear fabric? Thanks in advance!!

Great work! I love homemade costumes!!

#17 comment by Mary October 7, 2016

Hi Emily!

Thank you! Yes, I used a double layer of shear fabric on the neck of the Dino! I made a tube of fabric with the shear part in front. I then connected one end to the bottom of the Dino hat. This covered the face and neck of my kid and made it look like a long neck! Hope this helps! Love that you are making one too! Good luck!

How long did this take you? My son loves these costumes. your comments and directions are helpful:)

#19 comment by Mary October 10, 2016

Hi Beth!

Thank you! Hard to say how many total hours! But lots! The three costumes were made in a month! Exhausting, but well worth it! Thank goodness I do this once a year!

#20 comment by Beth October 10, 2016

I'm just trying to figure out how you shaped the heads with the foam...

#21 comment by Amanda October 13, 2016

I wish you could make a tutorial on how you make them!! My 3 year old would LOVE this :D

#22 comment by Shae October 16, 2016

These are amazing! My daughter would love this..

What did you use for the body fabric?? And the teeth are they foam??

I would love a little more detail if you wouldn't mind emailing me. Shaeward[at]hotmail.com

Sorry for not replying back sooner! I'm busy creating this years costumes and not checking messages as much!
Love that y'all are interested in my work! I don't think I'm organized enough to make a tutorial but I will try to one day! For the heads, I shaped sheets of foam onto a foam bollo hat (Dollor Store). I just kept looking at pictures and shaped it with masking tape as I went! And the body fabric for the Indominous Rex was just thin polyester gray fabric! I used markers and fabric paint to add high and low lights! I let my boys pick out the fabrics! They. we're so excited! Thank Y'all!
