Wear a long brown robe with a sash belt as the base of a monk costume. Add the rest of the accessories after finding the right robe.
The monk's robe should be loose fitting, so it flows a bit with movement, and the sleeves should be about wrist length and loosely cut. The belt worn with the robe should be a loose, wide-cut sash-style belt.
Step 1: Get the robe
The robe can be purchased or homemade, based on available time and the costume maker's sewing skill.
Step 2: Do the hair
Wear a monk wig, or shave the top, center area of the head in the traditional monk's hairstyle, which is also called a tonsure.
Step 3: Add the accessories
Put on sandals and a thick, wooden ice pop stick cross necklace.
