What Do You Need for a Doctor Costume?
To get started, you will need a white lab coat. You can usually find these at thrift stores, costume shops, or online. If you don’t have a white coat, you can also use a white shirt and black pants. Next, you will need a stethoscope. These are available at most drugstores or online. Finally, you will need some props to complete the look. A toy syringe and a pair of glasses are always good choices. With a little effort, you can easily create a Doctor Costume that is sure to impress your friends and family.
How Do I Make a Doctor’s Coat for Kids?
Doctor costumes are always popular for kids, and they’re not too difficult to make. The most important part of the costume is the doctor’s coat. To make a doctor’s coat for kids, you’ll need a white shirt, some fabric scissors, and some red felt. Then, cut a slit down the front of the shirt, from the neckline to the bottom hem. Next, cut two pieces of red felt in the shape of a cross, and stitch them onto the back of the shirt. Finally, put the shirt on your child and have them use fabric scissors to cut a “stethoscope” out of another piece of white felt. And that’s it! With just a few simple materials, you can easily make a doctor’s coat for kids.
What Other Props to Use in a Doctor Costume?
You’ll need a stethoscope, which you can purchase at most drugstores. To complete the look, add a few props such as a fake syringe, pill bottle, or clipboard. With just a little effort, you can easily put together a convincing doctor’s costume that is sure to get attention. Finally, you’ll need a name tag with the word “Doctor” on it. This can be made at home with some cardstock and a marker. With these few simple items, you’ll have everything you need to create the perfect doctor costume.
