To dress up like Umbreon for "cosplay," or costume play, you need a basic black outfit, yellow circle and stripe accents, the signature squirrel-shaped tail and rabbit-shaped ears. The process of making the costume and putting it on should take about an hour.
- Dress in black
Wear a black, long-sleeved shirt or a black, sleeveless shirt paired with a lightweight black jacket. Also wear black pants or a black skirt with black tights, leggings or leg warmers.
- Make a headband
Attach two rabbit-shaped ears to a headband. You can use black socks, cotton jersey or felt to make the pointy ears. The ears may either stand straight up or fall to the side of the head.
- Add a tail
Attach a squirrel-shaped black tail to the middle of a black belt. You can use fur or cotton jersey stuffed with batting to make the tail. You can also buy a prefabricated tail at a costume store. Wear the belt around your waist.
- Accent with yellow
Add circle and stripe accents to your costume with yellow duct tape or electrical tape. Put a stripe around each ear, about 2 inches from the tip of the ear. Add a stripe around the tail, about 6 inches from the tip of the tail. Also add a stripe just below each knee. Make two circles on the outside of each leg and one on each shoulder.
