Here's what your costume will look like when you're finished:

You're just making the sweatshirt! You'll have to provide your own pants or skirt, though.

1. Gather your supplies (click or tap to open the photos larger):

Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed,

You'll need:

* A purple sweatshirt in your size — we used this one, $5.96.

* A purple beanie — we got this one, $12.82.

* A piece of red felt and a piece of white felt. We got ours at the craft store for $1.50 apiece.

* The three cut-outs for Gengar from page 12 of the pattern PDF. We actually used only one when we made our outfit, flipping the pattern horizontally to make the second eye, but the pattern PDF contains patterns for both eyes.

Total cost for Gengar: $21.78

We didn't include the price of these basic crafting supplies in the estimate: scissors, a pencil, and a hot-glue gun with glue sticks.


3. Trace Gengar's mouth onto white felt, cut it out, then draw in the tooth lines using a ruler and a Sharpie (click/tap on the individual photos throughout this post to get a larger photo and step-by-step instructions):
