His reflective coat is his most recognizable piece of attire, it is the most important piece to start with. Find a long black raincoat that has reflective strips on it. If you already have an old raincoat, you are free to apply the reflective strips yourself for a homemade alternative. Wybie wears denim blue jeans, so you’ll need to find a pair of loose blue jeans to wear beneath the coat. 

He stomps around in his ankle boots, so find some that look ready for adventuring and slip them on your feet. You may need to find some dark green leather paint and apply it to the boots if you want to really reflect their appearance. Finally, finish off your Wybie costume by choosing some skeleton gloves.
