FW ink FAQ
http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=154280

I've yet to use FW ink but I will be very soon to dye my Neptune wig. When I get the ink I'll post pictures and tell you how it went~

As for sharpies, they shouldn't get on anything as long as you rinse it in water after you're done.

Thanks!!!

Sora and I bought a flat pink wig for her Marly cosplay...but it's tooooooooooooooo flat and doesn't look like Marly much. I've tried styling it to look "flippy" but it doesn't help. Suggestions? Here is the picture of the wig on Sora ---> http://axelsgrl24.deviantart.com/art/M-is-for-149674011

^ Layer it and use mousse to fluff it. Also, you could use a curling iron to flip it some more, just be careful, don't leave it on as long as with real hair.
Hopefully that'll work for you.

Teddy, if your Rin is using her real hair, just try to get your wig as close to her hair color as possible, makes pair cosplays look a lot better when something that's supposed to be the same is actually the same.

I'm trying to find a good, medium length, blonde wig I can use for Vexen's hair from Organization 13. But every time I search it up, I get these super duper long wigs. Should I buy a long hair wig and just cut it to the length I want?

just realized... willow from cosworx might work for you

Okay xD I need a really nice and somewhat cheep wig for Kagamine Rin T~T I can't seem to find nice ones anywhere.

I'm also a bit picky on the color and length of it~ I would like the length to be at least shoulder length for cutting and styling and the color perferably to be blonde/gold or light gold xD Pale blondes are okay as long as they have a slight yellow tint in it! =D I would like to style it like this xD http://cgi.ebay.com/Vocaloid-Kagamine-Rin-Cosplay-Wig-gift-Coif_W0QQitemZ160419342422QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2559bce856

If you guys have any links or places to go to please inform me T~T I really want this wig to look good xD

Also here is an example of a color thats good to me~ ^^ And probably as light as I would like it to go xD
http://nyaomeimei.deviantart.com/art/Len-and-Rin-Sing-together-151106047

And another but darker~

So I saw I Cosworx advertisement while on Cosplay.com, I've been on that site many a time, but as a friend of mine (jacob_blackfeather) is being Xigbar, and Xigbar has slicked back hair in a low ponytail, this wig stood out to me:

But upon going to the site, I couldn't seem to find that particular wig.
I was wondering if anyone knew if it was still being sold, and if not, what wig would work better for Xigbar?
Or maybe a few tips on styling slicked back wigs =D
*cough* tutorial *cough*

(Not to be a total n00b but) That looks kinda like a Riku wig from Kingdom Hearts, but shorter. *shrugs* You could cut it down?

I am open to doing that, I just need to find a longer wig that won't blow my budget in the right color.

So, how about color...? I was thinking about just going white, but I could also use Silver. What do you think?

I think I'll go for the white. Iconically (and acording to random author's notes in volume 1 of the manga) Allen's hair is white, so I'll just stick with that.

I don't plan on cutting my hair before now and Kumoricon--which means it could end up being really long. How do I fit it under a wig without the wig being noticeably elevated above my head? I mean, my hair is pretty enormous already.

Pin curls.
Here's a great tutorial on doing pin curls and then french braids in the back for long hair. I have also tried pig tails, and those work too if you can fit them in your wig right. (I can't french braid on my life. -.-")

Wig caps can save your life.
Those net ones with the holes in the top?
They are wonderful, I have seen people with very long hair easily stuff it up under a wig =w=

I've always like Sheryl's hair if there's bits of blond and pink, and not just a solid color. It's hard to tell if that is what's going on or not from the picture though.

I have a list from that site we both go on with (from their point of view) reliable wig sellers.

Here's what I pulled up...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Macross-frontier-Sheryl-Nome-cosplay-wig-/260597498111?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cacd240ff

That's kinda what I see it more like, it's up to your personal preference though.

Does anyone know where I can find a blue wig that's about shoulder length? I'm trying to find a wig that would be good for Sai'x from Kingdom Hearts.
Here's a reference picture: http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h209/rissaroo1234/Saix_by_arkoniel.jpg

I dunno what Felix means exactly, but I'd look for a greyer blue.
Also, wigs with bangs don't tend to slick back very well, and his hair is definitely slicked back. His hairline also just forward in a crazy way. Not to the same degree as Axel's, but whatever wig you use might need some wefts added to the front just to give the hairline that shape.

I meant that the colour of his hair is lighter and greyer than the colour of the wig. The wig you showed is too vibrant/saturated. (You might want to search for an actual screencap or official art as well. Fanart doesn't make the best references, since you don't know how accurate the artist was. Sometimes we're too lazy to look up refs and BS the things we can't remember.)

I'm having trouble for two of my character I wanna cosplay, Theres Maka Albarn from soul eater and Rukia from bleach. I was thinking of using ebay to find already styled wigs, but I'm not sure if I should trust it.

For Maka ( http://ocha.nierchi.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/maka.jpg), I was thinking of getting one off ebay, or getting one of these: http://www.cosworx.com/product.php?productid=26308&cat=2495&page=1 from cosworx, but it seems they're alway out of stock of the color I want. How often do they get back in stock? can I back order? Should I just go with one off ebay?

For Rukia (see signature.) My only thought was ebay but most of them that are on there look slightly in accurate., but is there a good place or one I can EASILY style myself?

THANKS <3
