Cow Ears and Tail One Size Costume from Theatrical Threads Ltd

There's been much welcomed additions in 2013 to the family of animal Ears and Tails Costume Sets by Charlie Crow.

As well as the existing Fox, Mouse or Rat, Rabbit, Tiger, Cat and  Dalmatian Dog, there is now also a Lamb or Sheep, Cow, Bear and Chicken set on offer.

These budget costume sets are great for World Book Day and Roald Dahl Day costumes for school events as well as nativity plays and themed music festivals.
Lamb or Sheep Ears and Tail One Size Costume from Theatrical Threads Ltd


The ears are on a wide fur fabric headband and can be held in place with the attached elastic chin strap, or for a firmer grip, the headband can be attached to a childs hair with hair slides.

The tails have fabric loops attached to them with velcro so that they can be placed around a skirt or jeans belt loop, but they could also easily be sewn to a coloured leotard for an inexpensive way to costume a dance school show where many animals are required.
