You are hereElf costume
Elf costume is fairly easy to put together. Elves usually wear a large size shirt and tights.
The most unique item that you will need to buy will be the long striped socks. They can be substituted by opaque tights in red, green or yellow color.
Girls can use regular shoes, boys/men can wrap their shoes with sparkly green cloth to create a elf-like shoe.
If you do no sew, you can make boy's shirt by cutting old shirt into elves shirt: cut the bottom of the shirt to form triangles. Cut off sleeves and cut off collar, making a scoop neckline.
For a hat, just wear a purchased Santa hat or make a simple cone-shaped hat out of any festive red or green material you have lying around. A bell on the end of the hat adds a festive touch as well
