All over my suit!

So i'm currently working on a Nick cosplay. As i am waiting for my jacket to get back from being altered I need to get some information.

I need to dirty up my white suit and need tips/ideas on how to do it. It's mainly the cuffs of the jacket and pants i want to stain to make it look like grime, mud and blood.
By the way the fabric is polyester.
Thank you so much for the help

(If you scroll down there are a couple more pictures of the suit.)
It's so difficult to watch an episode of Doctor Who without saying Dawwwww

My friend went to her basement and pretty much "cleaned" all the pipes with her suit! xD It looked quite good but was a bit pale for photos. And would probably wash out if she ever washed the suit, but that I'm not sure.

A lot of people are suggesting playing with dogs, but well for that you need a dog. xD;

Maybe you could try with charcoal too, but that might not stick to the fabric permanently.

For pants: Water balloons + fake blood, put on ground, step on. Dip hand in fake blood and flail near clothing, or use slashing motion. That's all I got as far as blood goes. For dirt u could just go outside and roll around for a bit

For dirt, I would say just find a dry, dusty patch of land and roll around on the ground in it. That will get it dusted up without big dark stains (like you would get if it was muddy/wet).
For blood... do you want realistic dried blood, or red blood?

For grime I found the inside of a car hubcap to work perfectly when I weathered my props and shirt for Louis. I found it to exceed my expectations... plus it won't just rub off, either.
