  1. 1

    Choose a long, big blonde wig. Spray and tease the ends so that you have nice big hair! It's an important part of the "Dolly" look.

  2. 2

    Do your make-up. Wear a bright, red lipstick. Think "more is more" when it comes to your eye make-up. Look like the diva you are portraying.

  3. 3

    Put on a padded bra. You will need this in order to have an authentic-looking costume.

  4. 4

    Put on a form fitting red shirt. You should show off "her" assets in a classy way! It isn't low-cut, but it is form fitting.

  5. 5

    Put on a short skirt. This should match the red shirt, but it can be in the colour of your choice.

  6. 6

    Put on pantyhose and red high heels. You want to get the whole look all together now.

  7. 7

    Have your nails done, or do them yourself. They should be long and red. Fake nails are probably your best bet with this costume unless you've been growing yours for a long time.

Tips and warnings

  • Be sure to practice your southern accent before stepping out in Dolly gear!
  • Don't go over the top with the costume. You don't want to make a mockery of this great entertainer. The costume should be done as a tribute and with taste.
