How to Make a Minecraft Wolf Dog Costume

About: Hi! I'm Geoff! I'm an electrical engineer with a passion for making things. I believe that creating is for everyone, and I love being able to share what I've learned to enable others to pursue their passions...

It may not be the Halloween season, but you could still get a head start on your costume! Why not? Here's a homemade Minecraft wolf costume I made when I was snowed in last Tuesday.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

First you will need boxes for each part of the wolf: head, nose, neck, stomach/body, and tail
you will also need:
scissors
box cutters(I am not responsible for anything that happens to you or your dog. BE CAREFUL!)
paper or paint
black marker
Duct tape
tape or glue
dog :)

Step 2:

Cut all the flaps off of the OPEN sides of the boxes.(if you cut off all the flaps on the closed side of the boxes they will fall apart!)
Then cut the end of the main body or stomach box and try it on your dog to see if it fits(we will be trying it on the dog a LOT, so keep your dog handy)

Step 3: Neck/Upper Body

Next cut the neck/upper body box to fit over the body/stomach box.(see image 1.)
Cut out the front to fit on you dog and cut a smaller portion of the back to fit snuggly over the main body.

Step 4: Tail

Take your tube/box and cut it to the length that you want it.
Then cut slits in it so it fits on the end of the body.
Duct tape to secure.

Step 5: Head

Take a box and see if it is the size of your dog's head.
Cut out the bottom and the front and the back,one side being bigger than the other.(The nose will go through the smaller hole)
Cut out eye holes according to your dog's eyes.
(Don't worry, my dog isn't dieing or has a bleeding eye, I just had flash on when I took the photo)

Step 6: Muzzle/Mouth/Ears

Take the flaps from the boxes you cut earlier and put three together in a rectangle shape without a bottom, taping them as you go.
cut it down to size to fit on your dog.
Then cut out a front piece and tape that on the front

Cut out two more squares from the cardboard and tape them on top of the head.

Step 7: Color

now that you're done with the body,you need to color it.  I used paper and taped it down, but you might want to paint it or something.  I have done a few cardboard creations before this and paint didn't work as well.
Make sure to make or color a collar, and make the muzzle tan.
color the nose and mouth with a black sharpie.

Thanks for viewing!
