This year my daughter decided that she wanted to be Pippi Longstockings for Halloween. I thought that it would be a great idea and that it would be lots of fun. So we started planning for the Halloween costume.
1st – We went to Goodwill to see if we could find a blue jean jumper like Pippi wore. When we were there, we also found a stuffed monkey that would work perfectly on my daughters shoulder.
2nd – I found some bright felt at home to put on the dress. I cut the felt into squares and pinned them on to make look like patches.
I also pinned the monkey on the blue jean dress also.
3rd – We finally get to the Pippi hair. I took a hanger and molded it to Pippi’s head. We then put a fake braided orange head piece over the hanger. I then braided the fake headpiece, the hanger, and my daughters hair. After we braided the three together, we twisted the hanger to look like it was pointed straight out. Then we sprayed the hair with orange hairspray.
4th – We took a brown marker and dotted my daughters face to look like freckles.
5th – You will also need a red long sleeved shirt, long striped socks and black boots.
