DEFINITIONS & TIPS
SANDWICH BOARD:
two pieces of cardboard, one in front, one in back, held together by straps across your shoulders
THINGS ON YOUR HEAD:
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.

HEADPIECE:
Put your head through a tshirt 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 tshirt (depending on what look you want to achieve - Ninja or Seal). You're done.

See our Ninja Costume Page for 3 ways to do this.

BEST FABRIC FOR LETTERS:
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.

 

SAFETY:
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.
