Frodo Baggins Start with a green tunic, brown pants, and hobbit feet (created by cutting the toes off of brown socks and stuffing with newspaper or foam).

Gandalf the White Gandalf the White is recognizable by his long white beard, pointy hat, and staff. You can find a wizard costume at a costume shop or create your own with a long white robe, white beard, and staff. The hat can be made with a pointy piece of foam attached to a plain black hat.
