Make Your Own Mummy Costume
Wear white, tight fitting clothing under the wrappings. Take a 5 yard role of 3 inch guaze and dip it in weak tea the day before and hang it out to dry. This will be your head wrapping. You will need a 60 yard roll of 1 1/2 inch wide masking tape for your body wrapping.
Start with your ankles and work your way up. Overlap the tape slightly and stop at the knee. Continue right above the knee and go to the top of your thigh. Do both legs. Then start in the middle of your stomach and run it down between your legs, crisscrossing over your hips and between your legs in a diaper fashion. Break off the tape. Just below your hipbones wrap around your body until you get to your underarms. Crisscross over your shoulders to cover your upper chest and back.
Start at your shoulder and move down your arm. Stop at the elbow and start again on the other side of your elbow. Do both arms. Now switch to guaze for your head. Tape down the end of the gauze under your collarbone and move upwards to do your neck and your head. Make sure it's not too tight around your neck! Keep your eyes and mouth free. Tape down when you're finished.
Rub some dirt on the tape so that you look sufficiently old and moldy. With a black or brown eye pencil circle each eye and smudge out for that hollowed out eye look. Whiten the rest of your face so that it matches your wrappings. This is a very visible costume!
