Unicorn Costumes

Updated on November 30, 2017

TWO-PERSON COSTUMES

A unicorn costume can, of course, be constructed for two people much like a pantomime horse [see Wikipedia]. However it would take quite a lot of dexterity to ski in this configuration! There are a lot of commercially available panto horse costumes that you could easily turn into unicorns! However they do tend to be a bit on the expensive side. Or you can go for a basic pre-made model for a few hundred dollars.

FULL BODY COSTUMES

Fursuits

The Aeromax toddler unicorn costume is an easy zip up design which makes it a very simple costume option although the pink color will probably limit its appeal to girls.

Adult versions of the costume are typically home made. These suit work best when modeled on an anthropomorphic (a.k.a. "furry") vision of the unicorn. This type of suit strikes a harmonious compromise between equine and human attributes. However the investment required to get this type of result limits its use mainly to true enthusiasts of 'fursuits'.

And for a slight change of pace, see this unicorn zentai ("complete body suit, 2006).

Four-legged costumes (centaur)

There are a number of ways to achieve an authentically four-legged unicorn costume.

Firstly, the rear part of the body can be constructed and attached at the waist to be worn in an upright position. The rear legs can be stationary, lightweight or mounted on wheels.

Four-legged costumes (arm stilts)

Alternatvely, a quad suit can be constricted wear the front legs are operated using arm-stilts. See an excellent example here.

Quadsuits

A full fursuits worn in a quadrupedal posture is called a Quadsuit.

HEAD ONLY COSTUMES

Hats

An older child may prefer to put together their own outfit with the highly detailed unicorn head hat by Elope (shown right). This hat also comes in white. And a knitted unicorn hat is currently for sale via Ecrater.

Masks

Horse-face masks: Pictured right is an authentic Venetian unicorn mask which maintain a horse shaped face with eye-holes near the unicorn's eyes.

See also:

There is a widely available rubber unicorn full-head mask that is very effective (see below). It is a version of the horse head mask made by Archie McPhee and Company. This developed into the brief 2013 fad of unicorning--wearing the uncoirn mask in baffling and inappropropriate settings like supermarket shopping or site-seeing.

Headpieces

Readymade costumes for adults are much harder to find. But this Elope headband with ears and horn could be the basis of a great costume.

Sexy Unicorns

Probably the definitive cheesecake unicorn is the young man in a well known this Exterface photoset. These photos even have their own fan art.

See also this interesting club costume.

There are of course various kinds of cheaply-made sexy unicorn Halloween costume's for women (Yandy). There are also some more expensive off-the-rack club costumes for women (Josie's)

Costumes for Pets

And if you don't want to leave anyone out of the unicorn fun, you can also get an inflatable unicorn horn for your cat in both white and black.

      They sold a sexy female one at Hot Topic last October, for Halloween. It's great for anytime wear, especially if you don't wear the horn with it.
