In my last post, I showed you the costumes I made/helped make for our youth group's Disney villain night.
I decided to go as Cruella de Vil, because - let's be honest - she has AMAZING style! And the girl knows how to rock black and white, which is my favorite look!
I'm pleased to say, that I had all the items for my Cruella and Dalmatian costume. Now, I understand not all of you have two tubs of G-rated costumes under your bed, but let me give you the details!
Cruella de Vil:
- 1 fabulous black and white dress (mine is a Liz Claiborne dress from a couple years ago.)
- Slinky black necklace
- Black and white wig (I actually combined two wigs - an Effie Trinkett and a Cleopatra one.)
- Black (or more traditionally red) leather gloves
- Red belt
- Black pumps
- Some kind of fur coat/shrug (I found mine at a thrift store.)
- Cruella makeup
There are many ways you could make a dalmatian costume. A White sweatsuit set, a sleeper, you could enhance it with face paint.. but here's what I did.
- I took Aidan's Max costume, from our Where The Wild Things Are escapades. I cut off the crown, painted on some spots, sewed on some felt dog ears, and voila!

Captain Hook, Cruella and the sweetest puppy!
I love our Summer Camps, and I LOVE dressing up!
What a fun summer!
