Mail Carrier Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Fairly easy - some sewing required

Materials:

  • Blue slacks and shirt
  • Postal carrier hat
  • 4 to 5 small stuffed dogs
  • Large, over-the-shoulder bag

Instructions: Nearly all supplies can be bought at a Goodwill store. Postal baseball-type cap can be found at Gags and Gifts or Spencer Gifts. Tear and shred clothing to look as if wearer has been in a fight. Attach small stuffed dogs to various parts of the clothing (just a couple of stitches keeps them secure). A tear in the seat of the pants can reveal heart-covered boxers. A few torn and crumpled envelopes sticking out of the "postal" bag finish off the costume. Entire costume should cost less than $15 and is very unique.

Tips: Goodwill is a great resource for costumes...very cheap and lots to choose from. Use your imagination! You can go to a uniform store and buy a real postal hat and shirt. If you add fake blood to the sleeve and pants and on the dog's mouth, people will love it!
