princess spaghetti costume dilemmas



There's so much fab dress-up in this book that I thought I'd better get together some sort of space princess costume to wear to comics festivals. Ellen offered to help me put together a silver space dress this weekend, but I'm not so sure about the big fluffy blond wig Scholastic gave me. It's AMAZING, but when I put it on this morning and sat in front of the mirror on my wardrobe, I had to come to terms with that fact that because I'm so tall and not exactly sylph-like, it makes me look like a total drag queen instead of a princess. Boo. :(



But I could still wear Princess Spaghetti's tiara! I'm trying to figure out how to do the little baubles in it, they need to look like a cross between big jewels and sweets (or just big bits of plastic, in a pinch), but I'm not quite sure what to use, or how to find them very quickly. Help! Any suggestions?
