  • White tape

  • Ruler

The Oompa Loompas are a group of fictional people from Roald Dahl's famous story "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," which has been adapted into two movies. They are known for their orange skin, green hair, brown and white factory uniforms and ability to speak in rhyme after anything unfortunate occurs to the visitors to the factory. Oompa Loompa is an often-seen costume idea because of the popularity of the original 1971 movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". Their socks are knee-high and vertically striped brown and white.

Step 2

Measure the vertical length, not including the foot.

Step 3

Cut several pieces of white tape the same length as the height of the sock.

Step 4

Place them vertically down the sock and equidistant from each other so that the white and brown stripes are the same size.
