That must have looked awesome!

This is part of a Winter Guard routine - same costume as everyone else, so her head has to look the part. Hair-wrapped wire is a great idea, but I'm afraid it might catch on her flag.

Actually, you gave me an idea...

I really wanted a finished piece that she could take on and off, but what if she tied her hair in little ponytails all over her head, and somehow clipped a piece of crin to each elastic? It would be an enormous pain for every competition, and I'm not really sure how to clip the crin.

How did she do it? I am so not creative.
