Living Statue Wig -free crochet pattern-

What a great costume!  And what a great idea to use a crochet yarn wig!  The wig makes this costume complete, no other wigs could have pulled this off.  Other great uses for crochet wigs, are for witches and rag dolls.  Do you have a costume yet?  You still may have time to pull this off!
