For his hair, we purchased hair chalk which easily colored his darker hair, plus it washed out well afterwards. You can also opt for a wig instead.
We used the below YouTube video to create his facepaint. The process took me about 1-1.5 hours to paint on his face. I did one practice round before the final paint. We used Snazaroo facepaint. The paint worked well and washed off easily. To ensure we'd have enough paint, we purchased a big pot of red in addition to the face-painting set.
While the wig I got wasn't the best quality wig I've ever purchased, for the price it worked perfectly I thought. It even had a slightly sparkly quality which I felt was kind of fitting.
Painting the star-burst/firework type designs on Joy's dress was a simple process. I just pulled up a reference image of her and used the body paint to apply the design. There's nothing symmetrical or rigid about the shapes, so that makes them easy to "recreate." I've always had great results with the Jacquard fabric paint.
