Hey! This costume looks awesome!I would like to know if you could give some details of how you fixed the pins to the chest and the head, and the materials they're made of. Thank you very much!

This is an awesome costume. Could you please share with me how you made this? I am wondering how you got the "pins" to keep from falling down on the chest?

Don't see answer to many questions about how to attach the pins in hair and heart. Thanks

#12 comment by Flaca October 12, 2017

Has anyone figured out how to put pins on the hair?

#13 comment by Lara October 13, 2017

Hi guys!
I used this idea last Halloween and it was a blast!
For the pins, I used bbq sticks and porexpan balls. I painted the sticks with silver spray and the balls with tempera (you may need to water it a little bit).
For attaching the pins to the hair, I just made a couple of buns and put the sticks in 'chinese style'. For attaching the pins to the heart, I bought a high density sponge. I made a 'heart pillow' with felt and the sponge (no sewing needed, go for the glue gun) and stuck the sticks on that. I hope it helps!

Hi everyone! I'm the creator of this one. The pins are just wooden balls and dowel rods. There is a small wooden plate behind the heart the chest pins were hot glued to, and the head pins were hot glued to a head band. I pulled her hair up to disguise the band. Hope this helps!

The pins just look like they are wrapped in the hair.
As for the pins in the heart, it kind of looks like there's a stiffer material sandwiched between the heart and the burlap. maybe a cardboard insert?

#16 comment by Flint October 20, 2017

I'm actually wondering how you got a sewing needle that big...how did you do the sewing?

#17 comment by Patricia Maldonado October 30, 2017

Are you referring to a "sewing needle to big" to see Yarn?? They sell big ones for yarn. Plastic or metal. She sewed burlap dress with black yard I'm guessing.

Made this costume for Halloween. It came out awesome. I used wooden dowels with wooden balls that had holes drilled into them that I found at Hobby Lobby. I attached them with some E6000 glue. I spray painted the dowels and brush painted the knobs with acrylic paint. I used a thin piece of wood, drilled with equal sized holes as the dowels, behind the felt heart that I sewed on with yarn. The dowels held in tightly after pushed through the holes. Because of that, I was able to keep from glueing them in and was able to remove them later to make the costume less cumbersome to wear. I used shiny black fabric paint to embellish the dress with the stitching design. As for the pins to the hair, I just pushed them through a messy ponytail. The costume was more time consuming than I imagined, but in the long run, it was worth it.
