The costume consists of an easy straight dress in hot pink, lime green or blue depending on the character. If the costume is for a child or even a small adult, an extra-large t- deer hunting t shirt will work. Cut off the sleeves and cinch in the waist with a wide piece of black fabric.

Purchase the t-shirts at hobby stores, for as low as $2.50 or search out the thrift store.

The girls have wild hairstyles that can be duplicated with gel and hair spray. Another suggestion is to find a wig and then style it. Buttercup has a black flip, parted in the center with bangs pulled to each side. If you are starting with short hair recreate Blossom’s bright red ponytail with a yarn wig or hair extension.

As an alternative, find the a large pair of black reading glasses glue a ring cut from colored card stock around the edge of the glasses. Make sure to cut out the center so that you can see through them.
