I've been working on my voodoo doll costume all month and it is almost finished, but I'm not sure how to attach my pins (foam balls attached to dowels) to my costume. Has anyone else done this before? How did you make it work?

I don't know how many pins you intend to have, but I'd suggest cutting a corrugated cardboard box into discs about 5 inches round. (One for each "pin") Then hot-melt gluing the discs to the inside of the costume fabric wherever you want a pin to be. Punch a hole through the cardboard from the inside, using a nail with a large head (roofing nail type) and then drill a hole, slightly smaller than the nail in the end of each dowel "pin". Hot-melt the head of each nail to the inside of the cardboard, and then glue the nail into the hole in the dowel. The cardboard should give enough stability to the fabric to hold the "pins" straight out!
