Help Me Ask MeFi for Costume Help?

Postby pooteeweet » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:54 am UTC

I have a burning need for advice from the internets and can't seem to figure out where to find it (google has failed me!), so I figured I'd try posting it on Metafilter. I do not yet have an account there, however, and it turns out there's a one week waiting period after signing up before you can post a question. My question is very time-sensitive, as Halloween approaches with panic-inducing... uh... timeyness.

If someone who has an already-established account with MeFi would be so kind as to relay my questions there, I would be grateful. Discussion here on this thread is also welcome.

I want to dress up as Divine/Babs Johnson in Pink Flamingos. I've got the dress more or less figured out, but I've just realized I have no idea how to make that hair. Even so much as a few images of what that 'do looks like from the back would be helpful. Haven't decided yet whether I'll try and alter a wig, or use my own hair. I do not plan on shaving my forehead or eyebrows. Also, I don't really know how to put on makeup. I can wing it, but tips for making it stay put might be valuable.

(sigh) I probably should have started figuring this all out a month ago.
