Buy felt (or adhesive-backed felt) at your local fabric or craft store. Clip a few safety pins inside your costume for in-the-field repairs.


Put your head through a t-shirt collar (like you're going to put it on) but just pull your face through. Tie the arms behind your head - either under or over the rest of the t-shirt (depending on what look you want to achieve - Ninja or Seal). You're done.


Two pieces of cardboard, one in front, one in back, held together by straps across your shoulders.


Nobody will care if you pin things to a baseball cap, but if you must be fancier purchase a headband or barrettes or a cheap pair of shades to affix props to.





ALL costumes should always be easy to take off in case of problems (bee down your dropseat, caught in an elevator door, etc.). Do not wear costumes that might make you trip or obscure your vision. In case you overheat: always wear a tank top under your costume - you can always unzip your footies and tie the arms around your waist.
