I have just made a dalmation costume for my daughter.
I used one of those paper type painting suits you can buy from any diy store.

cut the arms and legs took the sides in.

draw black spots on it drew ears on side of hood. sew tail on (ribbon)
I will draw a nose on her using my eyeliner pencil.

Cheap easy costume.

Good luck

if he doesnt like that idea you could cut up an old pair of trousers and an old shirt.

he could be a pirate. or paint his face green he can be the hulk.
hope this helps. its a nightmare dressing them for book day.

try not to worry. most parent just buy their kids a costume for tesco/asda etc.

They are quite reasonable.:)
