Best Scarecrow Halloween Costume Guide
The Scarecrow is a key character in L. Frank Baum’s novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, appearing in most, if not all of the film adaptations of the book. Scarecrow meets the main character, Dorothy, on her way to Emerald City in a field in the Munchkin Country. He tells her how he was created to scare away the crows. However, one of the wise old crows realized that he was simply made of straw. Because of this, the other crows were no longer scared and started eating corn in his field. The wise old crow told the Scarecrow the importance of having a brain. This prompted the Scarecrow to join Dorothy in her journey to the Emerald City, to ask for a brain. Get the look of the mindless straw man with this Scarecrow costume guide.
To look like Scarecrow from the classic movie, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, you’ll need to dress up in a Green Tunic, Medieval Pants, Medieval Boots, a Scarecrow Mask, Straw Accessories, and a Full Scarecrow Costume.
Scarecrow Cosplay Costumes
The Scarecrow is a kind and meek character. Known to be gentle, honest, and considerate, it’s hard to hate Scarecrow from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Even when he can be clumsy and uncoordinated at times, often due to the fact that he’s made of straw. Going as Scarecrow is a foolproof plan because he is easily recognizable and well-loved by anyone of any age. The basics are easy to find: a green tunic, some medieval pants, and medieval boots. To complete the look, though, you’ll need to wear a Scarecrow mask and accessorize with a lot of straw.
Going with the rest of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz characters is sure to spark joy at any event! Convince some friends to go as Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda.
When the Scarecrow, with his companions Dorothy, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, defeat the Wicked Witch of the West, the Wizard of Oz finally grants him what he came there for–brains. What Scarecrow doesn’t know however is that what the Wizard actually gives him is just a placebo – a combination of bran, pins, and needles – hardly a real brain! What the Scarecrow didn’t know all this time is that even without the Wizard’s help, he has always been the wisest man among his companions, and even in all of Oz. Before leaving Oz, the Wizard goes a step further and appoints the Scarecrow as the new ruler of Emerald City in his stead. Being the wisest man in all of Oz, however, Scarecrow is aware of his limitations and, instead, hands over the power and rulership to Princess Ozma and becomes one of her trusted advisors instead.
