Also I said I was going to post a tutorial tomorrow, but then I figured I'll be running around like a chicken without a head all day tomorrow and I decided to post it today instead. Hooray!
This craft is actually super easy, I decided to do it once I got confirmation that we would attend the screening, also I am a big dork, but that goes without saying.
Vanellope is a character in the movie, she is part of a game called Sugar Rush, the game takes place in a world that looks a lot like Candy Land, all the characters sport clothing that is made out of candy... well pretty much everything is made out of candy, and Vanellope's hair happens to be sprinkled with gummy bears, peppermints and... sprinkles:

For the madness to begin all you'll need are:
-A hot glue gun (and glue sticks for it)
-Short or long bobby pins (depends on your hair length) that match your hair color more or less.
-Hair clips (also close to your hair color)
-Small beads or ornaments that look like candy.
When I decided to go on ahead and try to do this, the first place I hit up to find "candy" was Michaels. It is super close to my office, so I went over there on my lunch hour with Andrei and I found these:

After work we had to do some shopping at Walmart, and in their kid's craft section, I found these on clearance:
I also picked up some hair clips and bobby pins while there, nothing fancy, the cheapest I could find on black.
I was worried the candy ornaments would be difficult to separate from the hooks they came on, but it was actually just question of a simple twist and pull and I had all of them off without even getting the hooks off the package:

|The blank side was perfect.|
The long bobby pins were too much for my short hair, so I tried shorter ones I had already:
|After: 3 minutes later... done!|
And then all you do is randomly place the candy all over your hair (after the glue has cooled off and dried, of course):
Anyway, They do look better in person and like candy, so I am pretty excited to wear them on Saturday.
Now for today's doodle. I did a quick female version of Captain America... I don't know why, I just did LOL:
