##Putting together your Kate Austen from LOST costume##

Step 1: Put on a long brown curly wig.

Step 2: Put on a bikini… You’ll never know what waterfall you just may have to wade through!

Step 3: Slide on a pair of utility cargo pants and a functional tank top over your bikini for exploring the island!!

Step 4: Clip a pair of handcuffs to your belt loops. Kate’s never without a pair!

Step 5: Use your tan lip liner pencil to stipple on some “freckles” on your face, across the bridge of your nose and cheeks. How do you think Kate got her nickname!?!

Step 6: Pick up a baby doll to carry around with you, kind of like little Aaron, Claire Littleton‘s son who Kate took care of when she escaped from the island.

Step 7: Pick up a license plate or two, or use a replica if you can find one. Kate kept a collection of license plates from states she had visited. And it’s also a humorous nod to her criminal past.
