DYI Halloween Costumes: Spots and Glamour, Cruella and her Dalmatians!

Looking for the perfect DIY cruella costume and dalmatian costume for your family matching costumes or your teachers team? 

Last year was bliss for me, with Cruella coming out and everyone in a frenzy to be Cruella for halloween with her matching Dalmatians. From facebook, to instagram to scrolling on tik tok it was endless ideas of sexy cruella, or that super lovey couple who kill it at halloween parties for the insanely detailed costume duo, or the family group where mom is Cruella, the husband who doesn't know what his costume is going to be until the day before, gets stuck being a Dalmatian and has to wear the ears because they match their kids Dalmatian costumes. Ok ill admit it... its me. It's me i'm talking about. I have been Dalmatian OBSESSED since as long as I can remember. Heres proof from the 90s (I wish I still had that dress)!


Anyway, in college, I was a risky babe Cruella for a ridiculous party that I regrettably got no photos of because that college gal never knew how far we would take the Dalmatian Cruella theme. I met my husband, who is not one to wear a costume or dress silly (he's a simple attire guy) and the first halloween told him that he had absolutely no option - he was going to be my Dalmatian. I'm sure he was thrilled but he handled it like a champ and we got complements all night on it. 


Fast forward to 7 years later..... it's august and my baby is a month old. Everyone kept asking me what did I plan on having my son be for his first halloween. And I'm like hang on, do you even have to ask. Thats right, Dalmatian. This was a new era though. Not sexy college Cruella, not new couple halloween party Cruella, this was going to be my mom version of Cruella. My husband bless his heart. Put a smile on his face and wore those puppy ears proudly. 



So if you love Dalmatians as much as I do, then you have come to the right blog. If you and your girlfriends are going out downtown and you need to be a sexy dog, or a risky Cruella, you're still in the right blog. Trying to make a couple costume with your boyfriend or if you're a teacher wanting to all be matching Dalmatians and stay casual, you are still in the right place. or if you are like me, a mom, who has waited forever for these cute matching DIY family halloween costumes - you have ABSOLUTELY made it to the right page.
