This costume was made from items around the house and thrift store buys, costing pennies to make. Any black pants will do, an adult black sweater with arms cut off for the vest, a striped piece of fabric for the sash and a belt. I cut an old white adult size blouse for bagginess, tied a red scarf for the headband with a few beads strung through it.
The hair was the easy part, being a wig, I could braid it easily with the beads, without having my son sit through it. The mustache was penciled on and I ended up doing the beard too since it was more comfortable and it looked just as good. Add a dollar store sword and voila!

Great costume. This should really be popular now.
