Easy costume: Where’s Wally costume
Creating dress up costumes doesn't have to be a costly exercise. You can make your own Where's Wally costume with what is in your wardrobe and a little bit of imagination. It's a fun way to dress up kids for Halloween, Book Week or fancy dress parties.
What you need:
- 1 x red and white striped T-shirt
- 1 x pair of jeans
- 1 x red and white beanie with pompom
- 1 x pair of black-rimmed spectacles
Number of players:
As with any dress up costume, it's all in the accessories.
The glasses are essential. We found a cheap pair of novelty glasses in the Hot Dollar shop and simply trimmed off the nose, moustache and eyebrows. Voila! A pair of simple black-rimmed spectacles for Wally.
If you can't find a red and white beanie with a pom pom, you can make your own red pom pom and then add it to a plain red beanie (which are a dime a dozen.) Then add some white felt for a white stripe. Just glue it on. Nothing fancy. No sewing skills needed. No marks will be taken off for dodgy shortcuts.
Put on the red striped T-shirt. Put on some jeans.
Sometimes Wally walks with a cane (go figure?) sometimes not. Add the cane if you have one.
Oh and don't forget the silly grin!
Now go and do some photo-bombing of your own in your Where's Wally costume.
