How do I make my straight hair curly?

For cosplay purposes, I'd like to have my straight, chin length bob converted to messy curls, along the lines of this
. I've used wigs before now to achieve good results for hair styles that I couldn't achieve with my actual hair, but I'd like a short, messy, curly bob this time around and I'd love to learn how to do this myself.

I'm a complete novice at all things hair: it's only been in the last year or so that I've started using a hair dryer and mousse only arrived in my bathroom in the last two months. My hair is quite fine and very soft, and there is not a huge volume of it. I am happy to cut or grow my hair if I need it to in order to achieve the look I want.
Again, I have no idea what I'm doing, so feel free to suggest videos, hair products, tools, anything that might help! I think it's a really cute look, so there's virtual cookies available if you can suggest a way to make the look doable before work on days where I want to look different, or if there's a way to have curls like this for a longer period.
