Animal and Bug Costumes 

Lions and tiger and bears … oh my! From the furry to the winged, we have all the animal and bug costumes children and adults will need to show up for a costume party in style. You can go for the expected premium rabbit costume for Easter, or surprise someone at a party in our red three-headed hydra dragon costume. Need to cheer on the home team at a basketball or football game? Be sure to check out our bulldog mascot costume! We have great ideas for under-the-sea creatures like our king adult crab costume, and we can even help you portray mythical creatures like Big Foot. 

From adorable infant costumes that will make you saw, "Aww," to adult costumes that will have everyone guessing who's hiding behind the mask, we'll turn you into any of the creatures found in the animal kingdom. Be sure to include your family pet in the costumed fun. Start teaching Fido to roar, and he'll be the king of the African safari while dressed in our Animal Planet Lion dog costume.

Animal And Bug Character Bios


There's no hiding when you're wearing this stunning peacock costume. The vibrant blues, greens and purples will have you standing out in the crowd. So fluff your feathers and arch your neck proudly as you make your big entrance.

“Be like a peacock and dance with all of your beauty.” - Debasish Mridha


Bugs often have the reputation of being icky, but this monarch butterfly costume is so beautiful, you'll be the star of the party. With accented orange and black wings and antennae for your head, you'll turn the icky bug world upside-down and make it pretty.

“The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.” - George Carlin

Cat and Kitten

Even the littlest lions know how to roar, and your toddler can really belt it out while wearing this Lil' Lion Toddler Costume. Just like lions in the wild, the costume has a soft and furry headpiece and a tail – with a red bow attached!

“If ever you feel like an animal among men, be a lion.” – Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality

Dinosaur and Dragon

If your child loves Dinosaur Train, she's going to love this Tiny costume as well. Tiny is the brave dinosaur of the family, always making new friends and creating fun rhymes to keep everyone entertained.

“It is one thing to read about dragons and another to meet them.”  ― Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

Farm animals

With an "oink, oink" here, you can have great fun with this Pig Plush Mascot costume. Everyone will be trying to guess who's playing the pink pig, and since you're in character, feel free to pig out at the food table all throughout the party.

“Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” – George Bernard Shaw

Forest Animals

When you want to dress as the Easter bunny or as the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, you need a premium rabbit costume to pull off your party adventure. Just be sure to perfect how you wiggle your tail in this full-body costume.

"Why did I ever invite that bear to lunch? Why, oh, why, oh, why?" – From Winnie the Pooh

Sea Creatures and Fish

If you want to make a killer appearance at your next costume party, this killer whale costume has you covered. Pretend you're Willy, Shamu or Keiko, or just have fun swimming through the party and coming up to feed on fish at the buffet table.

“Consider the whale: It never gets into trouble until it comes up and starts spouting.”

Zoo Animals

There's nothing better than an elephant decked out in a pretty pink dress. And when it comes to playing this elephant, be glad you don't have to bulk up! We have the elephant costume – pink dress included – so you can have fun all night long!

“If you do not have a memory like an elephant, leave impressions like one.”

Animal Group Costume

The lion is a symbol of strength, honor and respect. People have been dressing up like lions since the Wizard of Oz introduced us to the fumbling and ironic Cowardly Lion. The Lion King brought both fierce and adorable lion characters to life. A lion is unusually social in the wild compared to other big cats, and perhaps that’s why the lion costume is so popular at parties. Dress up with the whole family to make your own pride of lions. Mom and Dad can be Nala or Mufasa. Bring out the young one’s inner Simba with our Cuddly Lion costume. It’s got soft faux fur and the zip-front dress makes it easy to put on. Let baby join in the fun with the Cuddly Cub infants’ costume. It includes a tan shimmer jumper and separate bonnet with fringe and ears. The Little Lion costume for toddlers has a soft hood, bodysuit with tufted tail, and fuzzy slip-on boots. The adults’ costume features a fuzzy jumpsuit with fringe around the cuffs and ankles, and a matching furry mane headpiece. Our Planet Lion dog costume rocks a plush mane headpiece and is officially licensed by Animal Planet. Dress like a lion and have a roarin’ good time.
