Meet The Cast: Betty Lou Who

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)
