Have you seen “Cruella” with Emma Stone yet? If not, it’s a must-see! It quickly became one of my favorite movies in 2021. Today, I’m sharing our 2021 version of the Cruella and dalmatian mom-and-me costume. This one comes full circle for me. For my sister’s first Halloween, I dressed as the cartoon Cruella and my brother and baby sister were dalmatians. This is Ben’s first Halloween, so it feels appropriate that we recreate this with the new version of Cruella.
My gosh, his face.
Anyway, the details. There are lots of outfits in the new Cruella. It’s kind of the basis of the movie. So you could go with ANY of her looks from the new film. Think the trash dress, the red dress, the dalmatian coat, the ending with the black cape, “the future” look. Like so many good options. For this costume, I went with her look when she really becomes Cruella. This outfit is when she goes to see Anita in the office and then bops over to Artie’s shop.
I found this option on Amazon. It comes from China so it runs very, very small. It comes with gloves, but I didn’t wear them because I have a wiggly baby and needed a solid grip. Then I purchased this cane and a black and white wig similar to her hair in this scene. Luckily, the world kept up with the Cruella trend, so whatever look you are trying to recreate, odds are you will find the right wig to match.
Ben’s costume is actually a little onesie and it’s so comfortable for him (unlike some of the other costumes I have put him in for this project), so I think he really loved this one. It’s very soft and he can move around in it. So if Ben could vote, I think he would go 10/10 on this one.
