Luv it. Can u go into detail about how you made Marge's hair?

#2 comment by Katie September 22, 2016

For the hair, I took a poster board and rolled it to be the size of my head and then stapled it and cut off the excess. I used some of the extra poster board to then make a bump at the top. I then used a hot glue gun to glue cotton balls of over the pasteboard and then used blue spray paint to top it off. Pretty basic and easy and it turned out much better than I ever thought it would. Everyone actually thought they were marshmallows. Ha!

Were the glasses in the Halloween department of Target ?

They were, but that was two years ago. Good luck!

What exactly did you do to the glasses? We're they just plain and you dressed them up?
