Step 1: All Steps to Make the Wig

If you're making the costume for a child, buy a child size pair of tights. If you're making the costume for an adult, purchase an XL size pair of tights.

*cut slits for the Styrofoam balls when wearing the "tight tube" on your head. This will insure they're in the right place. You might need someone to help you do this.

    Great costume! Though, would it have hurt to type the instructions as well?

    Awesome instructable. I have a little boy, so I'll be using the concept to make Garu instead. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for the instructable. It only took me twenty minutes! :-) Just made it for my 18 month old and can't wait till she gets up from her nap to try it on her. May I make a suggestion? I figured out too late that maybe the balls should be shaved down just a nip (to make a flatter surface) where it sits on the head so it conforms better. Seems like it would bobble less. Maybe I will make myself one this way...

    eeeeep! your daughter is so cute!!! ( u ). anyways. this is ingenious. I checked out your profile hoping you would have more like this, but no... i found this online a loooong time ago when cackling "cute costume" or something. this is a little premature i suppose... but my friends and i were hoping to be powerpuff girls this year around for halloween. we've figured out the dress and hands and legs and shoes part, but we're not quite sure about buttercup/ bubble's hair. we want it to be cute, and not the .... well... tacky stuff that's from the store. any suggestions?

    I love pucca. This is a good instructable, but you should try making all those instructions in the drawing into steps for people who might not understand it. Hahaha cute child
