Fold a white flat bed sheet in half horizontally. Measure your waistline and add 10 inches. Divide this measurement by two. Cut the bed sheet vertically to this measurement. Pay attention to make this cut as straight as possible. In the centre of the folded line cut a hole just big enough for you head.
Sew the side seams of your costume leaving a big hole on each side for your arms. It may also be necessary depending on your height to alter the length of the costume. The bottom seam of the costume should rest just above the knees.
Tie a yellow rope around the waist of your costume as a belt, leaving approximately 10 inches on either side of the knot to dangle.
Cut a maroon twin-size flat sheet in half horizontally. Drape it around your chest and over both shoulders.
Wear brown sandals with your costume and sew silk leaves to a black or maroon headband to make the costume look more realistic.
