Luckily, togas are probably the easiest, potentially free costume you can make. You can find everything in your dorm room! Really, all you need is a pillow case – any color works – and some accessories.
- Grab a pillow case
- Lay it out flat on the floor and make an “arm hole” on left side by cutting straight down the right of the seam about 6 inches.
- About 3 inches in from the top left side, make a diagonal cut going downward toward the right side.
- This may still be a boxy shape, so you can make another small slit down the seam on the right side. Use these two pieces to tie a knot to pull the toga in for a more fitted look.
- Add a belt, a bandeau to wear under your toga, some vines or a gold headband to your hair and you’re set!
