TIGER COSTUME

Cardboard box tiger fancy dress costume

If you are looking for a book week fancy dress costume, this is a great one, there are so many beautiful books about tigers!

Some of our favourites are:

'There's a Tiger in the garden.' By Lizzy Stewart

'The trip to Panama.' and 'A letter for Tiger.' By Janosch

'The tiger who came to tea.' By Judith Kerr

 

Here is how we made our tiger fancy dress costume:

MATERIALS: I body sized cardboard box + extra cardboard for the head and tail, paint, hot glue and cord/ribbon/rope for the straps.

DIRECTIONS: I begin by turning my body sized cardboard box inside out and gluing it back together so you have a blank canvas to work with.

Cut a body sized hole in the top and bottom of your box.

Cut out your head and tail shapes leaving tabs on the end to attach them to the body box. I cut 2 of each so they can be stuck together to make them stronger.

Paint your tiger and draw on the face features.

Glue the 2 heads and tails together back to back and attach them to the body box using the tabs. I find a hot glue gun easiest for this as it is secure immediately.
