How to Make a Little Orphan Annie Costume

Save

When most people think of Little Orphan Annie, they imagine of a little curly redheaded girl singing "The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow." Simply adding a few details to your outfit makes that little redheaded orphan costume easy to make. Below are two different versions of the costume: Annie as an orphan and Annie in the red dress.

Annie as an orphan

  • Wear a curly red wig. Annie had short tight curly hair. If you already have red hair, you're one step ahead.

  • Apply dirt or makeup to your face and hands to make you look dirty.

  • Find a dingy button up dress to wear. Add stains and wrinkle it up before it's time to wear. Remember you want to look like an orphan.

  • Add an old apron and cardigan sweater.

  • Pull one of your socks up to your knee and leave to other down. Add old brown shoes or old lace up boots.

  • Place a broken locket around your neck as an added detail. You can also carry a pail with a rag in your hand since Little Orphan Annie did a lot of cleaning at the orphanage.

  • Add a shaggy dog adds to the costume to represent Sandy if possible.

Annie in her red dress

  • Wear a red curly wig.

  • Buy or sew a red collared dress that comes just above the knees. Add a white belt around the waist.

  • Add a heart-shaped locket around your neck. White socks or tights and black patent leather shoes go great with this costume.

  • Don't forget to add a shaggy dog by your side.
