Picture of Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe
I've done some pop art costumes the past few years. This year, I went with an Andy Warhol (both literally and figuratively) for Halloween.

Step 1: For this, I knew I would need:

This looks wonderful! And I love the complimenting costumes as well!

You did a fabulous job transforming the wig. Mine looks like your "before"- and I hope mine will look like your "after"! What kind of paint did you use( I assume acrylic?) and how did you get it to take hold in the new shape?

I used a combination of acrylic paint and that cheap hair color spray that you can buy just about anywhere for halloween. It was much more neon, but made the hair super pliable. As far as the shaping goes, I tried to do that before painting. I just used bobby pins to put the curls where I wanted, then painted over the pins. Good luck, and post a link to your costume here so I can see how it turns out!
