The best part about this costume is it's not complicated and you probably have some of the things you need in your home already. This costume can be used for Halloween, a costume party or any time you need a quick costume.
Creating the Costume
Wear an orange beanie.Spinelli is always caught wearing her orange beanie. Find an orange beanie laying around or you can buy one from a local clothing store.
Wear a red dress.Spinelli wears a red dress in the show. To mimic her dress you can either wear a red dress or a red shirt that is too big for you. If you decide to wear a dress avoid wearing a girly one since Spinelli isn't all about that.
Wear orange and black striped tights.Find a pair of tights from an old costume or you can buy a pair at your local clothing store. If you're not into wearing tight wear pants instead and if you can find the proper tights use black fabric paint on orange tights or pants to create stripes.
Wear a faux leather jacket.Spinelli often wore a leather jacket making her look tough and intimidating. Any faux leather jacket will do just make sure it's black.
Wear black boots.Find a pair of plain black boots making sure they don't look too girly or fancy.
Styling the Hair
Prepare your hair.Take a look at your hair, if it looks like a hot mess then consider washing and combing it. When combing your hair comb from the ends to root as this will prevent knots and tangles.
Consider straightening your hair.Spinelli has straight hair but that being said you don't have to straighten your hair to look like her. If you do decide to straighten your hair use a heat protectant to prevent split ends.
Dye your hair black.Use a temporary hair dye or spray dye to get Spinelli's hair again you don't need to dye your hair black but you will look more like her if you do.
Put your hair in pigtails.Split your hair into two sections making sure they are both free of tangles. Tie each section with a red hair tie since Spinelli uses red hair ties for her hair.
Moisturize your face.Starting on a clean face apply some face cream suitable for your skin type this will make your makeup look better.
Cover up any problem areas.Using a good quality concealer dab some onto your problem areas such as blemishes, scars, and dark circles.
Curl your lashes.Using an eyelash curler gently curl both of your lashes to enhance them also consider wearing some mascara but not too much Spinelli is a tomboy.
Wear lip balm.Exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush then apply a hydrating lip balm. Use Vaseline or coconut oil if you don't have any lip balm.
