How to make a snape costume?

Snape is a character from the Harry Potter books and perhaps makes one of the better evil costumes. Snape is not a likeable person for most, but he can make a great costume idea. We have instructions on how to make his costume using what you have around you at home or what you can easily sew.

* Black cassock

* Wand

* Black wig

* Face makeup

Step 4: The shoes can be dress shoes of black or even any shoe as long as it is black.
