##Putting together your Sawyer from LOST costume##

Step 1: Put on a straight blonde wig. You may want to use scissors to cut it into a longer, masculine style, hitting at the jaw with layers throughout. (Ask a lady friend who’s handy with scissors for a bit of help with your ‘do!)

Step 2: Use your brown or tan lipliner pencil to stipple on some stubble along your jawline and upper lip, darkening it along your chin.

Step 3: Put on a tank top, possibly in a dark color.

Step 4: Swing on a plaid flannel shirt. Roll up the sleeves to your elbows.

Step 5: Put on a pair of jeans and a belt, leaving your shirt untucked.

Step 6: Slide on a pair of cowboy boots beneath your jeans.

Step 7: Pick up a classic literature book. Sawyer was almost always seen reading some sort of novel on the island and loved reading. This makes a great character prop.

Step 8: The ultimate Sawyer prop is the crumpled up letter and envelope that he had been carrying with him for years. Write “Sawyer” on an envelope and rough it up a bit, tucking it into the pocket of your flannel shirt.

Step 9: Team up with a friend dressed as Kate for a great couples’ costume.
