Red here too.
Katie Bair did a Jesse wig a while back, and she used a whole can of hairspray on it. That's just a warning, because the wig seems like a whole lot of work.

My Dad was professor Oak last year, but he has gray hair, so he just took his hair and spiked it.
I'd go with a short gray wig and cut it so one side was longer than the other.

Ask me in a few weeks.
We're taking my mom's pink curly wig and dying greyish for genkai, so then I'll know.
Right now:

Chichi: I would go for the first one
Sahara: Red is my vote
Boogie: That wig looks good for him.
naygo: if your looking for a lighter color and you have a hard color wig there's no way to make it lighter.
I'm not sure how wig dying would work but you can't make it lighter with the sharpie dye method.
There's no way to make a wig ligher, unless you know what wig dye works.
I would email the sender about the color and see what they can do about it

I know I already asked, but I'm still confused on what I'm supposed to do.
How do I put my long blue wig in to a high ponytail?

You pretty much can't unless you add in extensions. o_o

If your wig is thick then you should have no problems with pulling it up into a ponytail. If it's thin then you should add in extensions so that the wig cap won't show.

My hair is SIMILAR to that of the character I'm roleplaying as.
Can I skip the wig and find a way to style it without being called a noob?

Do you have any ref pics of your hair and the character? Sometimes one's own hair can work but most often a wig looks best.

From a personal standpoint I'd definately reccomend getting a wig. Since Sakura's hair is semi-complex.

i am going as sasori, and i was thinking i might as well just style my hair. it's doesn't seem to hard. i  have looked at other cosplays of him and it seems easy. i also already got the right hair dye.

sadly this is my only picture with my hair normal...


and here is a wig, (my hair will be darker) the style is right, so i think it should work.




Ideas?

I think the wig is too pink. Sasori has red hair, pretty dark red hair and I don't think that is the right color for him.

@Starry-- I would say that you pin up the top layers and comb it carefully curl by curl, then do the middle layers, then the top.
Or get it all wet with hot water, brush it out, and re-set the curls... if you like torture.


I want to use my own hair for Rikku, but I don't think it'll be enough, should I get extensions for the braids and ponytail, or should I just get a wig for the whole?

Lukewarm water won't ruin the wig unless it's bioling... although I don't recommend this method since it might straighten the wig out too much. >.>
It's pretty much impossible to brush a wig without having at least a little bit of the hair come out. And well... Not ALL of the hair will come out. o_o;;

Try looking for a tutorial on cosplay.com.

Wait, don't those control how big the actual head is, not the wig length?

If I get what you're saying, yes.  They are meant for adjusting to the size of the wearer's head.

Right now I'm trying to get a wig for my Dan Kuso cosplay. I've found a few choices and wanted some input on which you thought would work out the best.

Here's the character: http://www.bakugandojo.com/wp-content/uploads/dan-kuso.jpg

Here are the three different wigs:

1) http://cgi.ebay.com/New-handsome-chestnut-brown-short-Mens-Hair-Wig-KN018_W0QQitemZ270451334777QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ef827de79&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

3) http://www.cosplay.com/marketplace/showproduct.php/product/16639/cat/1

What do you think? I'm a bit stumped.

two. defiantly.

clap: what does the back look like? if not then are you going to go more for a white wash out or a silver?

Thanks for your suggestion, after looking I realized you were right. xD I just really want to get the wig part out of the way.

Also, glad I could help.~ Someone suggested that site to me at the con and it just happened to have really long wigs on it. c;

Okay...So I'm gonna be doing Envy from FMA...And I've seem many people cosplay her and just leave their wig straight and unstyled...And I've also seen some variations of styling...

So, my question is: what should I do? Or at least tips to make it look better.

If anything, I'm gonna at least style the bangs...

Mainly, I just want tips or idea on how to style her hair like a palm tree...

Palm tree as in how it has all those super long shoots of hair that come out of her head?  That does seem hard, lots of product and mini pins in your hair so we can't see what is separating the strands?

Alright I got some conditioner for my wig and it took out a lot of the color. I am going to wait to see what it looks like when it dries then decide if I need to buy more dye or not. There is still some color on the top layer but a lot of it is gone x.x

I'll also post pictures and see what people think.

That's because Envy was actually supposed to be a girl...But something happened and the confusion started.....

I agree. The wig looks wonderful! I think it looks more like his hair now, with the silver coming out more.

Woman I told you not to try dying a wig black. It just doesn't work. You'll give yourself an anger attack and start throwing fits, which might lend itself to health problems, if you keep trying.

Just get a new wig.

And no, Halloween stores do not sell nice wigs.
