You know that everyone will wear bunny costumes and your child loves the lamb costume rather than the infant bunny costume. Since spring is a time of renewal, you want to go as a mama or papa and baby lamb, or an entire sheep family. Grab a few shepherds in Biblical costumes, and all right, an Easter Bunny costume. What more do you need? Answer: An adult lamb costume.
Here are some hints to make sure your costume won't be baa-aa-aad:
* If you have that merino rug, drape it around yourself and wear some black socks or boot tops as well as black gloves.
* Not all rams wear horns, but you can modify reindeer antlers to produce single long horns similar to bighorns.
* You can wear that bunny costume without the rabbit head--just pin a sheep's tail over the rabbit's cottontail.
* Rams are typically fluffier and bigger than ewes, so wrap yourself in an extra thick rug, especially if you're wearing a bunny costume.
* A Santa beard or several cotton balls glued to a white scarf or bandanna will give you that thick neck fur.
* You don't have to match your kids' costumes exactly, but try not to contrast too much.
* Blacken your nose with theatrical paint or wear a sheep's nose.
Now you and your little lambs can frolic together as a family flock!
