If you want to spend an evening searching for a brain, try a Scarecrow costume. He’s one of the loveable characters that joins Dorothy on her journey to find the Wizard of Oz and return to Kansas. If you are creative, you should be able to make your own Scarecrow costume. But there are also a number of Scarecrow costumes available to buy if you don’t want to do it yourself.
Even though the Scarecrow in the 1939 movie is a man, there are scarecrow costumes available for babies, kids and adult men and women. So it makes for a good group costume because it can be worn by either gender as part of a series of Wizard of Oz costumes.
Costume Accessories Gloves – He wears grey work gloves in the 1939 film. Straw – How can you be a scarecrow without stuffing your clothing with straw?

Crow (perhaps on Staff) – How can you be a scarecrow without a crow? Brain – Bring a brain along with you and tell someone at the party to hide it so that you can spend the evening looking for your brain! Ha.
