I'm going to be dressing up as Captain Kirk this year, I have the costume together, and have an old Captain Kirk mask I'll wear for a short time. I thought an added treat to the costume would be some Tribbles. For those of you that are unfamiliar, Tribbles are little furry creatures that appeared in an early episode.

My question is, how would you go about making a few of them? I was thinking maybe a few styrofoam balls with the "fur" simply glued around around it. Do any of you know what this hair/fur would be called in a craft store?

Thanks,
Matthew B.

I think Michaels has little packs of fun fur, I also saw some in Walmart just yesterday. If you need a lot of it hit up a fabric store in your area and see if they have any fur on clearance. A very cool choice in costume, I was watching that ep a few nights ago.

Good costume, Matt. The Tribbles will really add to it. I made new school Captain shirts for the new Star Trek for my friend and I (see pics). I'm sure she'll wear hers for my Halloween party this year.

Faux fir would work, but I'd stay away from the styrofoam balls. To rigid and probably uncomfortable.

Go to a dollar store toy section and get a couple squishy rubber balls. Even the ones that look like Sea Anomie would work. It would give a certain amount of 'jiggle' to the Tribbles (btw...that was the name of my pet Hedgehog..old trekkie here).
