 Oompa Loompa Costume

Oompa Loompa Costume

My name Is Jamie and my co worker Monica are just about the same size. We always enjoy making people laugh and thought little dancing Oompa Loompa's would be pretty funny.

To start off we took a shoulder length blond wig and put rollers in it and sprayed it green. For a nice shade of orange we just used a really dark foundation found in the make up dept. The tops were just a brown turtle neck with painted lines, white gloves and some white pants. We sewed on ribbon and button to criss cross over the pants.

I picked up some striped socks from Target along with white tennis shoes. I used yarn to make the little pom pom's and you have yourself a Oompa Loompa costume.

That idea is just fabulous. I want to do it but I can't seem to find white pants or a brown turtle neck. How did you make the pom-poms brown and white mixed together? Did you put a layer of brown wool then white then brown again?

Great idea! Love the costume!

How did you make the wig? Are the rollers still in the wig and what kinda paint did you use on the hair?

Please reply.

White pants are very hard to find in the fall. I found very inexpensive white scrubs at WalMart. My teacher friends and I are going as a gang of oompa loompas and Wonka too.

So cute

where can I buy it?

So I'm going to the store right? I go and get a blonde wig. Now what do I use to paint the wig green? I also get a brown turtle neck. I see how to paint the white stripes on the neck and cuffs. I was also wanting to know which you think would be better; buying striped socks or getting some brown socks and putting white athletic tape over them. What I don't get is how to make the pom pom things on the shoes. I might could get my mom's mom to make them except its a bit of a ways. And I have 19 days to make this and were low on money. Could you tell me how much money you guys put into this? Thanks.

love it
