Best Cruella DeVille Costume Ideas
Fans of 1001 Dalmatians love to dress up in a Cruella DeVille costume. Who knew that it would make such a cute mom and baby Halloween costume idea? US! Moms that are weary of being princesses, heroines and cheerleaders can enjoy dressing as a villainous, dog napping diva all the while carrying her prize dalmatian "puppy" along for the fun.
Can you remember the names of any of the family members that owned the precious little Dalmatian puppies? Well okay, if you are a real Disney scientist, you might. I would be willing to lay odds that there are more people who remember Cruella DeVille the spiteful, wretched meanie that would sacrifice cute puppies for a new for credit than there are who remember the good guys! If you want to be the good cowboy and wear the white hat, fine. But for the party girl who wants to be remembered, here are some tips for putting together the coolest Cruella DeVille costume.
Remembering Cruella's ensemble, you must admit the queen of femdom had a flair for drama did she not?

If you need advice on putting together an authentic looking Cruella mom and baby dalmatian costume; keep reading. The image that sticks in my mind is one of a rather wickedly attractive woman in a monochromatic black-and-white ensemble with a foot-long cigarette holder trailing smoke. Her hair was even half coal black and half snow white. No wonder that she thought a black and white Dalmatian fur coat was the height of couture and a much needed fashion accessory for Queen Disney Cruela! After all what is Cruella De vil's only true love? Why Cruella DeVil, of course!
How to Make Your Own DIY Cruella Deville Halloween Costume
Here is a list of what you will need to put together a DIY Cruella costume:
- A solid black dress. It's up to you whether it is short or long.
- Sexy shoes with high heels as high as you feel safe walking in
- A black and white wig
- Red satin evening gloves
- An opera length cigarette holder
- A cape preferably in a dalmatian print
- Rhinestone bracelets
- A white or black feather boa, or both if you are going for the ultimate in drama
If money is an issue (and it always is at my house), there are several complete costume kits available for the price of purchasing the wig alone.
A Cruella and her dalmatian "puppy" is a very creative mom and baby Halloween costume. It is easy to make your own baby dalmatian costume using that "used to be" white onesie or pajama set and fabric paint. The black spots will cover any stains. OR
if baby's white onesie is pristine and if you would rather not have permanent black dots all over it I have two words for you: black tape. How stinking brilliant is that?
Black duct tape does a super job of sticking to the fabric until you don't want it there any more. Tip:
Peel the duct tape off as soon as the family gets home to avoid any sticky residue on the fabric.
all you need to make your own baby dalmatian puppy costume as well as several costumes that are available and ready to wear.
How to Make a Dalmatian Baby Tutu
Go here to see this adorable dalmatian tutu and others that will be perfect for your Cruella Deville mom and baby costume.
Use the same technique to transform a plain, white baby tutu into a dalmatian tutu as was described in the instructions for a onesie that was described above on this page. More care should be taken when removing the black duct tape spots from the delicate net of the tutu than would be necessary with sturdier fabric but beyond that the process is exactly the same.
Once the duct tape dots are in place, carefully attach a bright, red bow made from satin ribbon and VOILA! Cruella has the most adorable dalmatian puppy ever to take Trick or Treating! Happy Halloween!
Cruela loved what she saw in the mirror, what we consider a costume was her LOOK of choice! I'm not sure what SHE saw there that was so lovable, but it certainly wasn't the mean devil bitch in drag that the rest of us see! She was not what you would call drop dead gorgeous by anybody's measuring stick and the costume that she wore was a bit over the top! But that's what made Cruella DeVille the famous villain that she is!
Can't Disney make you despise a villain when they want? 101 Dalmatians is wildly popular and a Disney marketing empire has sprung from the movie with all the bedding, accessories and other merchandise that you could ever want! It seems that the films with bold contrasts between good and evil really do well!
Cruella DeVille's favorite femdom costume attire was a formfitting, hot little black dress. You probably already own a sexy little number that will do in a pinch. Of course, you may want this dress to fit a little tighter and for the hem to fall slightly higher on your thigh than you would normally wear to most cocktail parties or to the office Christmas party.
This particular costume works as well for a red hot mama who wants to be a diva for the night as it does as a mom and baby Halloween costume idea.
A collarbone length choker of imitation pearls and pearl stud earrings are required. If you happen to have a matching multi-strand pearl bracelet that would go nicely with your Cruella DeVille costume as well.
These are some items that you can probably find in your own jewelry box or borrow from a friend. Throw in a pair of ruby red spiked heels, elbow length red opera gloves, a long faux fur coat and a wild black-and-white Cruella DeVille wig to top off your costume, and you will be in business. Oh and no Cruella DeVille costume would be complete without the trademark extra long cigarette holder.
Your Cruella Deville costume will be great for a costume party or ball at Halloween, Valentine's Day or any other special occasion! If you want to dress up like Cruella DeVille and admire yourself in the full length mirror in your own bedroom well, that's kinky, but certainly ok! BEHOLD, the evil mistress Cruella evil wench of femdom!
