Does anybody have any ideas on how to make (or buy) the orange leg things that Rock Lee wears?

I made mine by taking a large square of orange fabric, with a rectangle of batting that is half the height but the same length of the large square. Then fold the square in half and place the rectangle on top of the folded square. Sew it along the top edge, then pull the tube inside out. Topstitch along the top and bottom of edges of the tube, then topstitch several vertical lines along the length of the tube each 2 or 3 inches apart to acheive the ribbed look. when you have finished the vertical lines, fold the ends of the tube together and sew it along the end. Turn it inside out and you've got a leg warmer. :)

You did it the hard way XD I would have purchased some white (or tan, or yellow) legwarmers and dyed them orange.

btw- the eyes are what totally make your costume ultra-awesome. Ping pong balls? :D

i bought the whole thing at good will lol except headband.
I bought a big ribbed orange sweater and cut of the sleeves and tailored
them to look more like leg warmers i'll post pics soon but it looked good

fortunatly i found some green warmup bottoms and turtle neck in the
kids section lol they fit fine ;D kinda sad i'm the size of a medium little
boy?

wig
