Treasure trolls have been popular for decades and have developed quite a following. If you're one of their many fans and want to dress up as one for Halloween, the costume is easy and relatively inexpensive to put together. With high-standing hair, a tummy jewel and a cute outfit, your costume will stand out at almost any party.

Outfit

To do a basic treasure troll outfit, opt for a flesh-coloured bodysuit and flesh-coloured tights. Another option is to wear any costume you wish -- a swimming costume, ballerina tutu or lab coat are just some of the options. Trolls wore a variety of outfits so there's an option regardless of how much clothing coverage you want.

Make-up

Treasure trolls sometimes had rosy cheeks, so put blush on your cheeks for some colour. Use a nude lipstick and, if you wish, coloured eyeshadow to match the colour of your hair. Trolls have a slightly tan skin colour -- to achieve the look, use bronzer, spray-tan or tanning lotion.

Hair

The hair, one of the focal points of the treasure troll costume, takes a lot of hair product to achieve if you would rather not use a troll wig. Bend over so your hair falls straight down, gather it as if you were putting it into a ponytail, then work your hands down to the tips of the hair and hold taut. Use a freeze hairspray or gel all over the hair -- apply it from the roots down to the tips until your hair stands straight up in a triangle shape without falling. Spray a temporary solid colour hairspray all over your hair until you can't see your own hair colour.

Tummy Jewel

From a piece of fabric, cut out the shape you want your tummy jewel to be -- it should be large enough to be quite visible from several feet away. Use a strong glue to attach large circular rhinestones onto the shape until the entire surface is covered -- the rhinestones must correspond in colour to that of your troll hair. Put double-tape on the back of the fabric and attach it onto your stomach area, either on your bare skin if you are wearing a midriff-bearing shirt or directly onto your clothing.

Accessories

Wear nude-colour ballet flats to simulate the bare feet treasure trolls always have. If you're carrying a small purse, carry one that's the same colour and shape as your tummy jewel. If you want to wear earrings, opt for rhinestone studs.
