  • Link

    The Zelda video game character requires a lot of green felt, brown boots, a makeshift sword and shield.

  • Grumpy Cat

    Paint your face brown and white, make some ears out of material from a fabric store and sport the biggest frown you've ever worn.

  • Gingerbread Man

  • Penny

    Get some cardboard and spray paint it bronze, attach it to your head and voilà! You are now a currency.

  • Grey Scale

    Ever wanted to look as if you lived in black-and-white à la "Pleasantville"? Just wear solely black and white and paint your skin grey.
