Yes, those are really pigtails! I'm deeply in love with them too. It was a bit of a stretch, but after lots of hairspray and Yo Gabba Gabba, I got the little piggies. Sadly, they met their demise once we got in the car and she got tired. Apparently she likes to play with her hair when she falls asleep. At least they lasted 10 minutes as the cutest little pigtails in the world!
