Ooh, that sounds like fun! The great thing about wild animals as a fancy dress theme is that there are so many colorful and interesting costumes to choose from.

Fierce Animals
I think any fierce wild animals would make adorable costumes for young children. A lion would be cute – you could make a fluffy little mane, paint your child’s face, and add a little tail to the back of their outfit!

A tiger would also be good. Think of the cute little tiger ears you could make! Getting a stripy costume might be a bit difficult, though. A leopard might be easier, as you could get yellow clothing and draw black spots on it with a Sharpie.

A crocodile would be totally adorable. I think young boys in particular would love this – they’d get to have a big green tail attached to them. When your kid stands up, he’d look like a mini Godzilla, and when he lies down or crawls, he’d look like a crocodile. I think this would be particularly good for young toddlers!

Colorful Animals
A colorful animal would also be a lot of fun, and I think little girls might find it particularly enjoyable. If your child likes the color pink, then a flamingo would be a great choice.

A brightly-colored parrot could work too, providing you can get your child to wear a beak for the competition!

Alternatively, you could make a peacock costume by attaching large peacock feathers (either real or handmade ones) to the back of your child’s dress or t-shirt.

A panda would be the easy option, but easy options don’t tend to win competitions! For a panda outfit, all you’d have to do is apply face-paint, sew black sleeves onto a white shirt, put your child in white pants and attach little panda ears to a headband.

Good luck – I’m sure your child will look amazing, whatever you choose!

I suggest a peacock outfit for a boy and a flamingo outfit for a girl...both costumes would be fun to make, both are fancy, and your child should stand out.

Penguin child looks very cute, but you say the competition is of wild animals. So, tigers, zebras , baboon, rats are some good wild animal costumes.

A rat dress will look a little boring, and a baboon would look horrible on child. Look for zebras. Your child will look cute and can win the competition.
