Meet The Cast: Betty Lou Who

Betty Lou Who
MUA: Hanna Fisher

Wardrobe/Wig/Props: Lisa Graystone

The looks for each character for our shoot were carefully curated. I wanted each character to look like the characters from the film but not exact replica's. My Betty Lou Who character, played by my step-daughter was a great example.

I created her wig from THIS rock'n'roll 80's wig + 2 toilet paper rolls, hot glue and bobby pins. T I trimmed the wig into a Betty Lou Bob and used the excess curly hair to cover the toilet paper rolls to create her unique hair look.

Betty Lou and Martha May DIY wigs

I also DIY her plate/eggnog fascinator. See Details and list of supplies in my Cindy Lou Who Blog

Her costume in the film had a matching red cape and dress to Cindy Lou but I wanted a little more diverse color pallet in my family photo so I opted for a Vintage green cape instead of red and a Black and White Vintage checkered dress.

Dress: 55,000 Dresses (from my collection)
Belt: Evolution Vintage (Stretch Belt - $15)

Vintage Petticoat: 55,000 Dresses (for sale $35)

Vintage Green Cape (From my collection)

Faux Fur Collar with pom pom's (from my collection)

I added the plate to the front of the dress, similar to Betty Lou's 
I used real cookies that I painted and hot glued and a candy stick. I pinned the plate to the dress.

Because Betty Lou loved lights in the film I purchased Vintage light bulb necklaces in bulk. We used them for the shoot and them my family enjoyed them all season long! 

*The Flats also came from my personal collection*


Our Makeup artist Hanna Fisher used a latex FX appliance for Betty Lou's Who nose (Buy here), Who long lashes on the corner of her eyes a long with a full set and Holiday makeup complete with a red lip and a painted Rosy nose tip!

She also had a gorgeous set of front Whoville over sized teeth! (Shop)
