Inspired by the post of a friend’s costume creation, I decided to do a search this week for “dolphin costume.”
Uh, sir? You seem to be missing a neck. Also, why did you choose only a head? And if you were only gonna wear a head, why did you choose a DOLPHIN head?
This costume actually looks surprisingly well-constructed. It’s a shame, because a grinning dolphin coming towards me, walking upright on two magically-sprouted legs, is a legitimately terrifying concept.
This idea isn’t so bad, but it would look a lot more like the kid was actually riding the dolphin if it wasn’t bursting through his torso. Or if he wasn’t bursting through its blowhole. Or whatever is actually happening.
Unlike most dolphin costumes, this one actually has a neck. Unfortunately, that just makes it even more terrifying. At least it doesn’t have legs…but is the dress option really that much better?
This might be the scariest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. If someone walked towards me wearing this, I would scream.
Of course, if you don’t want to wear a full costume, you should always go for a mask. This one is so cute, because it looks like you’re being eaten by the dolphin! Right?
Wrong. Dead wrong.
I don’t think the alternatives are much better, though. In which case you just might want to stick with something like a tiny prosthetic dolphin nose, to just barely get the “dolphin” feel across.
At least with two mouths, you can talk and eat at the same time without seeming rude. (Instead, you’ll just be really fucking scary.)
