A zebra costume is an animal costume that can take many forms. At its most sophisticated level, it might take the form of a store-bought or rented costume that quite closely resembles the real animal. Such a costume could even be for two people, one person being the front of the animal and the other person being the back. At its simplest level, the costume could be improvised quite easily using black and white striped clothes. A mask or face painting could enhance the look of the costume and help to disguise the wearer.
