-----------------

If you are having trouble finding the pieces for the costume in the store, or if you like sewing parts of your own costumes, check out these ideas:

1) Make your own tunic shirt from yellow material with black stripes (you can use black material or black electrical tape to make the stripes)

2) Make homemade makeup

3) Make a skirt from black material.

4) In colder climates especially, make a cloak from yellow material with black stripes (you can use black material or black electrical tape to make the stripes). You can wear this overtop of a warm jacket. The pattern does not require sewing.
 
Comments: My daughter wore a yellow hooded sweatshirt and black sweatpants, under her costume it kept her nice and warm as well as added to the outfit with a black legs and a yellow head :)
