Something I see a lot of Eddies ignore that adds a lot to the costume and is exceedingly easy to make is his scarf.
Go to a fabric store and take a look through their remnants bin. Most fabric stores sell odds and ends of fabric for half off, and you might be able to find a little strip of white fabric. If not, buy 4 or 5 inches of something cheap. Even bleached muslin wouldn't be terrible, although something silkier would do well also. Look for linings, they are cheap and would work perfectly. Fringe is a little pricey, but not when you're buying just 8 or 10 inches. You can sew or even glue a hem on the scarf to keen it from fraying, and then sew or glue on the fringe. Voila! Instant Eddie scarf. Even if you do a slapdash job, it'll look okay onstage and it's better than nothing!
