##Things You’ll Need##

* Red ski cap

* Yellow earmuffs

* Blue parka

* Blue sweatpants

* (OPTIONAL) Pillows or newspaper to stuff your parka and pants with

* Large black belt with buckle

* Black boots or work boots

* Toy pickaxe

##Putting together your Yukon Cornelius costume##

Step 1: Head to a discount store or raid your closet to find a pair of blue sweatpants, red knit cap, blue parka, and yellow earmuffs. These can all be easily found in the Boys’ Department (yellow earmuffs) and the rest in Men’s sizes.

Step 2: Put a wide black belt with a buckle around the waist of your parka. To acheive a burlier look like Yukon Cornelius, you can stuff your parka with some pillows or newspaper.

Step 3: Carry a toy pickaxe in your belt.

Step 4: Find a red beard and mustache set and adhere to your face with spirit gum. If you can’t find one in red, take a red wig and cut it. Or, obtain a Hagrid beard and use some orange hair spray to color it in before applying for a Yukon Cornelius look!

Step 5: Go bounce some Bumbles and trot off to the Island of Misfit Toys!
