DIY Fantastic Beasts Zouwu Pet Costume

This Fantastic Beast is the Zouwu and according to J.K. Rowling has been described as a gigantic elephant-sized cat that is five-colored. It comes from Chinese bestiary mythology and is one of my favorite magical creatures from the Wizarding World. The creature has this wild hair and when his magic activates it lights up.

To celebrate the release of Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald I turned my dog Juno into a Zouwu! Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald is out on digital now and Blu-ray on March 12th. Fantastic Beasts Zouwu Costume

From the imagination of Wizarding World creator J.K. Rowling comes the Fantastic Beasts film series, magical adventures set before the time of Harry Potter. At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

  • I hot glued the lights into two rows around the mane making sure that the hair wraps around the lights to keep them in place and also to make the hair stand up a little more. I positioned the lights in a zigzag formation to give the appearance that the copper was part of the hair.
  • I then used a red paint marker to make some of the mane a deeper red color in some areas.
  • I used some hair gel to make the hair stand up in a wild fashion like the movie. You could also use tacky glue for this, just make sure it's completely dry before placing on your dog.


It’s the cutest little Pitty Zouwu I’ve ever seen! Now I need to work on a pink feathery tail for her!

Thanks for watching and reading!Zouwu
