2 navy blue turtlenecks
Pair of navy blue pants
3 yds of dark blue fabric (may need more or less depending on your height)
4 different colored ribbons, each about 4 ft long
2 large snaps
Hot glue gun
Sewing machine or needle and thread
For the clothes under the actual “robe” part, I just used a couple turtlenecks and a pair of tight sweatpants I picked up for a couple bucks at the local Salvation Army. Buying second hand bases saves money and it’s more eco-friendly than purchasing something new. (It’s also a great place to find base boots, which will be coming up next week for the final part of the Dr. Strange costume). Since everything is mostly hidden by the robe, you don’t have to get too specific in choosing.
I used about 3 yards of material to make the actual robe part, but I’m only 5’1″ so you may have to adjust the amounts more or less depending on your height. Also I used a sewing machine for most of it because it’s faster, but if you don’t have a sewing machine, you can always just use a good old-fashioned needle and thread.
I’ll also be showing how to attach the cape to the robe, so if you haven’t made your cape yet, check out my tutorial for that here.
So I know I kinda look like “Groovy” Stephen by the end of this because of my headband, but tune back in next week, and I’ll be doing the belt, boots, and wig part of the tutorial. So the final shot in that will be the full costume. More magic, less flower power (though of course I do love flower power 😉 )Enjoy this post?
