Voodoo Doll Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Adults

This homemade costume for adults entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Jo, the 'Voodoo Doll' costume creator:

I am wearing a voodoo doll costume which I created. I was in New Orleans not long ago and had been pondering the idea of a voodoo dol tattoo so the ideas came to mind pretty easily.
I made the head from shaping an old curtain rod into U shape and then wrapping wire coat hangars around it which were wired on to an old embroidery hoop which was the base of head. This all formed a ball which was wrapped in 1 inch bed padding foam that was layered with burlap farbic. Button are made from thick foam that was painted and glued on. I cut 2 eyehole in the button holes and used black yarn to stitch a mouth.
The body is 2 piece made from burlap, red felt for heart and stitched with black yarn. Pants are held up by rope belt. Arms were gathered at sleeves to give closed look.
I took my Croc shoes and covered with burlap to give overall doll effect.
I wore this to the local VFW and won overall grand prize, everyone loved it and even thought it was purchased not made.

How did you make the pins and get them to stick up?
