Can you go to a hair salon with a wig? *points to avi.* I can't find one for her but was thinking just buying a brown long one and showing the pick to the person and say "cut it to look like that."  *tried cutting her own wig once and killed it.*

Don't most hairstylist/salon peoples learn on wigs? I seem to recall my friend in beauty school starting out on a rather sad
little wig head and blonde wig... perhaps you could present the picture on wig at hand to a Senior of a beauty school and
have the wig cut for cheap under the watchful eye of a teacher... I'm contemplating this myself. If we could create a group
of cosplayers who want it done we could confront a beauty school in the area (Paul Mitchell?? or the MHCC beauty school...)
And see if they would make it some kind of interm project! Wouldn't that be cool?

Sorry for the double post but I have a dilema that I need some expert opinions on!!!!

*is in crisis*

Okay, so, I have 5 wigs I need to buy (the first will be bought in 2 days and it is hardly a
worry) and style for each of my characters... I'm feeling a little daunted and in a moment
of weakness I went online and found this:

http://www.cosplayfu.com/product/Sakura+Kinomoto+Wig+from+Cardcaptor+Sakura

!!!!! Isn't that almost totally PERFECT?!?! Clearly it needs to be fluffed since it's flat but....

AHH! I'm so torn now!!! Do I buy the wig that is maybe $15 more than the one I originally
intended to buy since it is already practically pre-styled for my character... or do I stay
pure to my idea of getting everything and doing it all myself... I want to feel accomplished
when I show off these costumes... I am not a big fan of pre-made stuff... but I'm starting to
faulter in my resolve due to time constraints.... ugh...



It just looks so perfect!

I'd get the cheaper wig and style it myself if I were you. But I'm not so do what you wanna do.

How the heck would I style a wig for this freak?

Thanks for the advice, my only plight is that this will be 1/5 wigs I have to style myself
and maybe if I take 1 pre-made... it'll lighten the load. But I think I just needed the
"c'mon! do it yourself!" to get me amped up again!

Yours is actually pretty easy to understand from my perspective. Take a pink wig, probably
shoulder length or longer that does NOT have bangs... you'll want to tie it up tight in some kind of
hair tie about half way up the back of the head, then using g2b styling products, sculpt the hair so it
doubles back from the ponytail onto the entire head, giving it a waterfall effect... I'll try and
show you a picture of this being done with my own hair if I get a chance to go home in the next
few days... but it really is just as easy as that, just make sure you know where you want the pony
tail and find a way to keep it there, cause the hair will be top heavy and may try to pull everything
down!

Here's a discussion on that same issue, plus a picture of what the cosplay wig
looks like after you have used the wonderful magic that is Elmers Clear Glue!

Oh, um, for the pic I posted his hair's not actually pink. It's just a reference for the style.

A "waterfall effect" picture would be nice =,)

okay, it's gonna take a day or two... unfortunately I'm away from home tonight so I'll have to
post it later on tomorrow evening at the earliest!

In just a quick do up to practice though (here at work) my hair is a bit longer than your characters
so the look may not come off quite right, but will have the basic idea, step by step.

Yes I know I'm supposed to have a picture of my hair in the waterfall format for you by now...

I'm sorry, aparently my bed just isn't a place I am needed currently, though everywhere else
seems to require my constant attention.

However, if anyone is having an IMPOSSIBLE TIME finding wigs, or are totally and utterly inept/
afraid to butcher a wig for their cosplay... I found this really nice lady who, judging from the
pictures of the wigs she does... does absolutely FABULOUS work... and the prices aren't that
bad for what you get... she works commissions and requires about 3-4 mo advance notice and a
materials deposit to get started on your wig but if you are willing to spend the dough and get
something great... I think this might be a good place to look!

Yay options!

P.S. Yes! Yes! I will get that picture up asap! &__&

Yeah, you are prolly right... I dunno, I'd never buy anything from her, cause
1. no money and
2. I need the xp!

lol did I just call experience xp? Guess I need to step away from the rpgs...eh?

But I figure the pictures may give people some good ideas... she does kinda explain a bit
what she does to each wig.

Some manga/videogame characters kind of require over-styling. Otherwise you'd never get their hair like that.

I agree about the experience. In the end, it's more cost-efficient to learn how to do it yourself, even if you butcher a few wigs in the process.

see i get that but there is a way to make it look the right style, with out looking like you globbed it with hair gel so it wont move.

the hair needs to be able to move at least a bit, her wigs are those that might as well be plastic

I'm agreeing with the plastic-y comments, seriously. The wigs look like they might be lower-quality too, and some of her work is just plain strange looking. Not saying it's a bad thing, no, since they do look pretty accurate, but there's a difference between accurate and natural and being able to pop a balloon with your spikes.

Never mind that it looks like she can't cut bangs to save her life. If I ever got anything from her I would probably end up redoing it myself. She couldn't even get the kinks out of some of her longer wigs before taking pictures D:

yeah. I like wigs when for instance sora, its not sharpened to a point, and it can still move. for her there are wigs where she REALLY didnt need to put that much gel in : /

xD and the bangs cutting, even trimmed it looks so odd ._. its so flat! D:

Okay, I've been looking around for awhile for this but I'm stumped. It's just really hard, for me, to find a wig of this length in the right color. Any suggestions guys? Plus I'd need a little help on how you'd think I should style it once I get it.

Go longer, and if you need a SUPER specific color, corsworx might be the place to go.
I think that maybe I could find it on ebay.
I'll post in a minute.

LET THERE BE GREY/BLUE WIG!

I actually looked at that one! What a small world.~ I thought it wasn't quite the right color, but if I wasn't the only one who thought it might work then maybe I'm wrong.

Most people's spike hair is their natural hair.
A bunch of people who cosplay spike don't do so very well, or elaborately.
So, what I would do for the wig is get a black wig, and rough it up a bit. Get some spray, and fix it so it looks like his hair.
If you really REALLY feel the necessity to tint it green (I don't think it's green enough to have to do that, but whatever floats your boat) I'd use the crap-o-la spray junk. It'll tint it enough so it wont look REALLY green, but it'll work to make you happy.

That's great Nikki <3

I agree with the green tint. not really my thing. I firmly believe the green tint was just to show how "roughed up" it was.

Hey all~

My long curly silver wig is starting to get rather tangled (stupid wind ;-;), and I want to get it to be right again.

reference


Do you think if I comb it out and then douse it in water it should go back to the original shape? I don't want to take out the curls... Aha. :'D

Crapola...
Maybe you want to go with washing it with cold water and wig conditioner.
I am hoping to be getting some for christmas, so I could lend some to you.

^ If you have to comb it make sure to be gentle so as to not pull out fibers and whatnot :O

I'm having frizz/tangle issues with a long wig too, I think I'll try the motions oil sheen spray- or whatever it's called.

Silicone spray ftw.

You spray the tangle and your wig brush/comb, and then you brush it out. ^^

I use Mane 'n Tail, it's worked pretty dang well for me and it smells nice. Works best on straight wigs because it uncurls curly ones.

alright. for once i am getting ready for K-con way before last minute. I have decided to be sabata this year (hooray for awesome vampires before twilight series!) and his hair might prove difficult. this year i have a far larger budget then last. last year i had 40 bucks plus extra odds and ends for sasori (apparently i like characters starting with "SA") unfortunatly, barely anyone cosplays as sabata since the game series he is from isn't that well known. i found one guy with a lot of pictures, but his cosplay wasn't as i imagined. i need some help getting a wig that would be able to hold it's shape and color. (if it could be purple that would be better, still can't find one yet) but i need something to hold its shape. it would stick out in the back a bit, and the two parted things  of hair in the front. (just look at my avatar)

Your avatar isn't very helpful. Maybe you should post a link for us?
