The Red Queen

Introduction: The Red Queen

The Red Queen

I purchased the Red Queen's dress online and found the crown and sceptor at a costume shop.  Her hair was the tricky part because most kids don't like to wear wigs.  I used foam curlers without the plastic holders to roll up all of her and shaped it like the Red Queen wears her hair.  I bobby pinned each curl and without taking the curlers out (I needed them for volume and shape), I sprayed the whole thing with red-colored hairspray.  I also sprayed her forehead a little bit to make the widow's peak, and then exaggerated it when I applied the white makeup.

    This is super cute, but buying the dress and all the accessories does not exactly fit the "DIY" theme of instructables. In fact, other than spraying the wig and applying the makeup, I'm struggling to see the "you" in this costume.

    I'm not really sure why you posted this at all....
