Technically, I'm going for her Araņa costume, but I felt like putting "Spider-Girl" in there would help people recognize who I'm talking about. Anyway, this is her outfit: http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd113/theMightyKnip/YoungAllies.jpg?t=1271057098

Okay, my main problem seems to be in finding a wig. Most layered wigs aren't thick enough to put in a ponytail that high and I don't really feel comfortable shelling out $40 for an un-layered wig and cutting it myself. Does anyone have any recommendations or a place to point me in the direction of?
Secondly, I'm not entirely certain how I want to make the pockets. I am considering just making them out of cardboard or thick craft foam because sewing all of those tiny pockets would be way too much of a hassle and I feel like they wouldn't look stiff/sturdy enough.
Thirdly, I'm not a total noob, but I'm no expert when it comes to make-up/body paint and was wondering what the best route for her tattoo would be?
Lastly, as an overall aesthetic I was figuring using a plain white tank and some black shiny leggings for her pants. It says on wikipedia that she used jeans or sweatpants or something, but I really doubt that's the case. That, or artists aren't entirely sure what those items look like on a human lol
Sorry for the giant post, but I figured the most visual references, the better for anyone trying to help. It's greatly appreciated!
