Looking for a last-minute Halloween costume you can pull together in a snap? Why not don the attire of Waldo, everyone's favorite perpetually-displaced childhood friend. The beauty of being Waldo is that once you've got the foundation (a striped shirt and hat) you can easily accessorize it with items that you probably already have lying around the house. Just get ready for lots of attention, as you're guaranteed to make new friends left and right as they find you in every room you enter. Read on for tips to pull together the perfect Waldo costume!

MATERIALS:

- A striped shirt - A striped hat - Red yarn or string for the pom of the hat - Black, thick rimmed glasses - A satchel full of fun accessories

STEP 1: The Shirt

Since striped shirts have been in vogue for the past few seasons it shouldn’t be too hard to find a red one in your local thrift store (or perhaps even in your closet).

STEP 2: The Hat

The striped hat is a bit more challenging – try looking for a white beanie at a thrift store and then covering it with red felt. You can make a pom pom by using a bit of red string and following this handy tutorial. Once you’ve made the pom simply thread it through the top of the beanie.
