  • You can make pretty simple things out of ultrasuede - vests with fringe, cowboy chaps, indian clothing, etc. Doctor scrubs and medical kits, firefighter jacket & helmet, all kinds of hats...

  • If you have a local thriftstore like a Salvation Army, Catholic Charities or Goodwill they always have great items. Suit jackets, ties, hats, shoes, gloves, scarves. The possibities are endless!

  • All of the above and old halloween costumes or parts of them.Try thrift stores for old clothes that are too big. Don't be afraid something is too "girly" when my son was in preschool he was super possesive of the witch costume in the dress up box, and when I worked with toddlers many of the boys would find it fun to put on the dresses in the dress up area.,

  • Old Halloween costumes are great... for my son we had Darth Vader, a chef, a police officer, knight, a firefighter, Mr Incredible, a dinosaur costume... most of it we bought on sale the week after Halloween!
