I recently finished designing the costumes for the children's musical "How I Became a Pirate." It's a cute play with only 6 characters so there was lots of opportunity for fun crafty details. These are my two "showpieces"

The first is a wig that I dreaded with synthetic hair and yarn.
I started with this wig...and turned it into this one

Next, was the oversized toe of Jacque "La Toe." I molded my own toe out of paper mache' then painted and attached it to his distressed shoe. I filled the toe with great stuff foam insulation to keep it from being destroyed during musical numbers. It's held up  to 20 performances pretty well with only a few paint touch ups needed.

The photos are from first dress, so some changes were made to the final versions; but I'm actually very pleased with how everything turned out and can't wait to try dreadlocking again.

Wonderful job on everything, what a great idea for the toe.  It looks like you had a lot of fun working on the play!
