Just about anything with camouflage will suffice as an army base. If you have boyfriend or husband that hunts, raid their closet! Otherwise army surplus stores (and they are everywhere) will give you super cheap access to the materials you need.

After you have procured camouflage gear, you can then start to fit it to your needs. If its an army blouse (collared bloused army shirt) then cut out the arms, tighten it around the waste and it because a super sexy combat suit ;)

If you don't have the means for camouflage pants, you can always just use black shorts or pants.

Finally, either find or buy a combat hat. Best bet is amazon or again the army surplus store. If you don't like the look of a combat hat/cover, they look at buying a camouflage trucker hat or regular ball cap. Always a nice touch.
