The costume of a shark has recently emerged as a popular option, especially for people who appreciate and/or enjoy both marine biology and displaying a sense of power through the manner in which they dress up.


The Shark – The Scariest Sea Creature Hits the Shore


Below I have included several different photos that reflect the shark theme costume ideas of others. Be sure to take a quick browse through our selection to come up with some unique ways that you might like to implement for creating your shark-themed costume.

Sharks have diversified to such a large extent that they now make up nearly 500 different species. When designing your costume, you may create one that reflects one of these species, a comical shark, or even a popular shark such as “Sharktopus”, “The Singing Shark”, one of the Street Sharks, “Bruce the Shark”, “Dinoshark”, “Jabberjaw”, or even the popular Transformer called “Overbite” – the choice is all yours. As you look at the pictures below, I'm sure you will discover an idea or two that is perfect for the shark-themed costume that you want to create.

In looking at the costumes highlighted through pictures above, you were probably inspired on ways to create your own. There are many shark costume ideas that you may elect to go with – whether you are creating the costume for a baby, a toddler, a young child, a teenager, or an adult. Many of these costumes require accessories and apparel that may be purchased from costume stores. However, if you have a little time and a knack for creativity, you may easily create a homemade shark costume. Below, you will find the necessary instructions that will help you create your scary sea creature costume:

Instructions for a Basic Shark Costume


Items Needed:
  • Hooded Gray Sweat Suit
  • Basic White Felt
  • Stiff White Felt
  • Black Felt
  • Stiff Gray Felt
  • Glue & Hot Glue Gun

Step 1: On the front of the hooded gray sweat suit, place a square of pre-cut white felt and glue it to the front of the shirt using the blue gun.

Step 2: Now, cut out the gray stiff felt so that it resembles a shark fin and glue it on the back of the hooded gray sweat shirt.

Step 3: Using the stiff white felt, cut out teeth. Once you have created the teeth, glue them on the inside of the hood, with the points facing towards the facial region.

Step 4: To create the eyes, cut circles out of the black felt and place them on both sides of the hood.

Step 5: Put on all the pieces to transform into a frightening shark!
