How to Create a Doctor Costume

How to Create a Doctor Costume. Three out of four doctors surveyed say you don't have to be a doctor to look like one.

Things You'll Need

  • Laboratory Coats
  • Surgical Costumes
  • Toy Bones
  • Shower Caps
  • CDs
  • Elastic Strands
  • Toy Hammers
  • Toy Saws
  • Shower caps

Determine your specialty. Are you a brain surgeon, a psychiatrist, a general practitioner?

Gather shower caps from hotel visits, or get one from the drugstore for that sterile surgeon look. A psychiatrist? A Hollywood stylist would muss your hair a bit.

Glue an old CD to a length of elastic that fits around your forehead. Now you look like the old-fashioned doc with a headlamp.

Poke around thrift stores for scrubs or lab coats. In a pinch, an oversize white or kelly green shirt will do.

Look for loose cotton PJs in white or green for your bottoms.

Snap a couple of those extra shower caps over your shoes for the proper surgeon look.

Check out the toy store for a stethoscope, tongue depressor or oversize reflex hammer.

Make a button for your lapel that says, "What're Your Symptoms?"

Carry a plastic saw, plastic bones or a big candy thermometer for a few extra laughs.

Carry a pad, pencil and pipe if you're a shrink.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't give out too much advice, and write so no one can understand your handwriting.
  • Check thrift stores first for these items, then tag, garage and jumble sales.
  • Props are readily available and reasonably priced at party supply, toy and craft shops.
