Bank Holiday Weekend!

Hooray! - it's the start of a bank holiday weekend (almost). That means you should go and enjoy yourselves, like these dogs. You deserve it. It also means that we won't be sending out any more animal costumes until Tuesday, just so you know.
Here are a few ideas of things you can do in your animal costumes this weekend...


Go to Meadowlands Festival, in an animal costume...

It must be one of the earliest festivals in the calendar: Meadowlands - in Sussex - is an intimate festival in a beautiful setting, with a really promising and eclectic musical line-up. We'll be going, if the weather holds off. Obviously you should go in an animal costume. More details here.

Go out on a homemade raft, in an animal costume...

This is fun to do wherever you live. All you need is a river, a plank, and an animal costume. But if you live anywhere near Portrush Harbour in Norther Ireland, you can join in the fun with the Portrush Raft Race - a charity event in aid of the RNLI. Make a wacky homemade raft and race around the harbour to the finish line. Now that's definitely the sort of thing that people should be wearing animal costumes for.

Go to a food festival, in an animal costume...

If you're not quite ready for a music festival yet, there's a whole bunch of food festivals happening all over the country. Go to one in an animal costume, eat something delicious. What more could you want out of life?

Go for a picnic, in an animal costume...

The great thing about picnics is that you can have them anywhere. And the sandwiches - they're great too. Or better yet, go to the Big Picnic at Hampton Court Palace in Surrey. It's a picnic-themed event (duh), with entertainment for all the family lasting all weekend. A good one to go to if you're with kids (or if you are a kid): entertainment includes live music, sports day style challenges, a production of Canterbury Tales, and something to do with a leech.

Check out some street art, in an animal costume...

Check out Upfest in Bristol this weekend. Apparently it's Europe's largest live street art festival, which basically means a bunch of amazing street artists from all over the world - all painting in one place. Go in an animal costume, and maybe someone will paint you into their art.

That's all we've got for you - see you next week!

Introducing ZooHood



We're really pleased to announce the launch of our new partner website ZooHood.co.uk.

As you know, we're always on the look-out for new and exciting animal costumes from all over the world. During this never-ending quest, we kept coming across all sorts of animal-themed products that just didn't fit into our existing 'Animal Costumes Shop' brand: animal T-shirts, animal jumpers, notebooks and stationery with beautiful animal-themed illustrations, earphones which look like penguins, slippers which look like bees... the list goes on. We realised we needed a new website - and ZooHood was born. A new website which will sell all sorts or animal-inspired products for adults and kids including clothing, gifts and homeware.

Animal Costumes Shop will of course continue to exist, and ZooHood will just sort of sit alongside it. We're about to announce some amazing new products for Animal Costumes Shop too - so keep watching this space. In the meantime, here's a taster for some of the products we're launching on ZooHood...



...And there's plenty more too. Check out www.ZooHood.co.uk.

New Dinosaur Onesie Pics


We've redone the photographs of our light dinosaur onesie. It's always been one of our favourites, but the photos we had on our website always let it down a little - having been done so quickly as we were so excited when it first arrived! So we're really happy to update the website this month with some shiny new pics. Here's a sneak peek, but check out the Dinosaur Onesie page to buy.
