It’s spooky season!! I’m so excited to be bringing you my first halloween costume idea of the year! This Cruella & a Dalmatian – Couples Costume is an easy DIY that Alex and I had a blast doing.
Ever since the Cruella movie came out last year we’ve seen an uptick in women wanting to dress up as Cruella (who can blame them – the 2021 Cruella was SO fashionable!). If, like me, you love a good couples costume, than asking your partner to be a dalmatian is a must!
Below you’ll find a list of everything you need to easily DIY a Cruella & A Dalmation – Couples Costume.
What I love about this costume is that aside from a few key must haves, you have ton of creative liberty in making this costume your own! You’ll need a half black/half white wig, white & black face paint (I added black jewels for the spots), and a dalmatian print faux fur coat. Everything else is up to you!
I would personally recommend a long black dress, pearl choker necklace and red gloves. For your makeup, opt for a bold red lip and dramatic cat eye.
For the Dalmation:
This is a really quick and easy DIY! Grab a mens white top and white bottoms and some sticky back black felt. Cut out dalmatian spots and stick them all over! Tip: don’t make the spots all even circles or they’ll look like polka dots – make sure you make oblong shapes and varying sizes to keep it more dalmatian like. Then just grab dalmatian ears (our Amazon set came with ears & a bow tie) and add some dalmatian face paint and you’re good to go!
There you have it! An easy costume that is fun and can be really inexpensive. Give your best Cruella sass and get out that door and celebrate Halloween!
