Rita Repulsa and Her Incredible Wig

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villain Rita Repulsa has an unforgettable costume, and it starts with her massive hair. With that style, one of her biggest foes had to be narrow doorways. Daireth Winehouse of New Age of Dignity dressed as the character recently (the costume is really well done) and detailed her process for crafting the wig. She used newspaper to make the base of the cones, fabric, a mannequin head, and plush material to make the pattern.

The wig is made from a short-haired base, and the cones are two separate pieces. She rolled newspaper in the shape of a cone and applied that pattern to the wig. In this case, it looks like the wig is attached to a fabric base so Daireth was able to trace the pattern right onto the fabric backing. She sewed the cones together, stuffed them with polyfill, and pinned them to the center of the wig. Finally, she wrapped the wigs with brown ribbon.
