St. John the Baptist ~ Costume

St. John the Baptist is another Bible saint. Read more about him here.
Our St. John the Baptist is dressed in a fleece like material that I bought at the local craft store. It looked like a type of camel skin. I also used a brown t-shirt (about the same color as the “camel skin”), a piece of twine around his waist,  a plastic grasshopper(locust) and a large stick for his staff.
Here is a picture of the parts and how I cut them.

The next pictures are to show how I pieced the costume together.
I used a safety pin to fasten the skirt around his waist.
Then added the top part over one shoulder.
And wrapped the twine around his waist to keep it in place.
