Adult Dinosaur Costumes

Let’s get this party started right! Nothing injects life into your next party like a costume. They’re fun to wear and entertaining for guests, making them the ultimate ice breaker. You get to step out and be something you’re not for a night, and the more you stand out the better.

One themed costume doing this in new ways is actually old school, and I do mean old. We’re talking prehistoric. Welcome to the world of dinosaur costumes.

Dinosaurs are enormous and yet mysterious creatures. We haven’t seen them alive, so they bring up all kinds of interesting questions. What are they like to talk to? What’s their favorite beer? You have the chance to answer these profound questions and many others.

And walking around in a full-length, extra tall costume in a room full of people holding champagne glasses creates just the right surreal feeling. The absurdity will put your party at a whole other level.

An important factor to keep in mind when buying any costume is quality, and this is especially the case here. If you’re going to be a dinosaur, do it right. Choosing well means you will look good throughout the night and not like you’re just survived a car wreck.

Luckily, we’re going to make choosing a quality costume easy. Here are the top 5 best dinosaur costumes on the market today. Let’s roar right into it…before they go extinct.

Top 5: Adult Dinosaur Costume Reviews

1

This costume has many, let’s say, unconventional characteristics that make it one of the top 5.: First off, this costume is award-winning. That’s right. It won a Toy of the Year Award. Secondly, it is an authorized Jurassic Park costume.

Though this may have you asking how many out there are unauthorized, this is actually a very good thing because if a movie gives its stamp of approval, the quality is there. 

But wait, there’s more… The costume roars! There is an onboard battery-operated roaring machine. Just imagine saying hello to your friends at your next party.

It is also well priced while being good looking. And the design covers you from head to toe to create an authentic feel as you walk around the party. It is so realistic that endless clips on YouTube show people wearing them while doing hilarious daily chores.

This company offers a range of choices from a T-Rex, a T-Rex with sound, Triceratops, Velociraptor, or Velociraptor with sound. Pick your favorite and have your friends by other designs to create a themed party. This particular model comes as a standard size, which is discussed on the link, so be sure to review it or you may look ridiculous.

It requires 4 AA batteries but they are not included. I recommend wearing the costume when you stop into your local battery store… for no particular reason. 

PROS

  • A wide range of styles.
  • Good looking design.
  • A fun, bouncy look while you walk.
  • Strong overall reviews.

  • Available in “standard” size only.
  • The face mask can get foggy, making it hard to see.
  • Can get warm unless the fan works properly.
  • Can be hard for people to see out the window if they are 6 feet or taller.

They are so comfortable you can wear them around the house at night, and is ultra-cute as a sleepover costume. These are loose fitting and gives you full movement, making you a hit on the dance floor. And it even comes with pockets, making it ultra-relaxing loungewear.

And with many of these products having more than one option available, you have a wide selection of styles to choose from.

We’re also here to help make your choice easy…

  • If you are looking to create a statement, there’s no question the #1 and #3 are the best options. These costumes are guaranteed to raise a smile.
  • If you like to appear more creative while still having easy interaction through the night, then the explorer #2 and ride on #4 are the easy choices.
  • If you are looking to still create some fun while maximizing your creativity at a low budget, then #5 is the choice to make.

Final Verdict

When ordering dinosaur costumes, it is good to evaluate what you will be doing that evening:

  • If it is a large party in a large space, such as a ball space, then maybe a larger inflatable costume is the preference for a more dramatic effect.
  • If you will be indoors in a warm space, perhaps a costume with the face and arms more exposed will cool you off more.
  • If eating and drinking at a cocktail party, it’s important to evaluate the designs to see what type of movement you will need. Will you need fingers ready for finger foods? Is holding a drink going to be a problem with some designs?
  • In the location you are in, what is the bathroom situation? If it is a porta potty, maybe something small will work best?
