Dinosaur costumes are a favorite among young kids and babies because dinosaurs are exciting and fun to learn about. The word dinosaur means “terrible lizard” which captures their mighty presence. Many types of dinosaurs roamed the earth about 65 million years ago, which scientists know from examining their fossils today. There were tons of different dinosaur species—some carnivores, herbivores—as well as some that live in water and as well as pterosaurs which can fly. With so many types of dinosaurs with different abilities and features it’s fun to decide which dinosaur costume to wear.
Choosing what type of dinosaur costume to wear can be a lot of fun. Wearing a T-Rex costume or a Tyrannosaurus costume can make you feel strong and unstoppable, especially when you let out a terrifying roar. Raptor costumes are also great for anyone who wants to pretend to be a mighty predator. Triceratops costumes are especially great for babies and toddlers who are crawling. Pteradon and pterodactyl costumes are also very popular because they are exciting dinosaurs.
One of the biggest contributing factors to the popularity of dinosaur costumes is of course the movie Jurassic Park. The film was wildly successful and generated a lot of interest in dinosaurs in both children and adults. Other popular dinosaurs in fiction include Yoshi from the Mario video games, as well as Dino from the Flintstones. And of course one of the most popular kids character who happens to be a dinosaur is Barney the dinosaur and his friend Baby Bop. Barney the dinosaur costumes have been popular for many years among very young children.
The great thing about making your own homemade dinosaur costume is that you can get very creative in terms of colors and features.
