I love love love tutorials, and have always wanted to make one so I thought I would document the process of my Kitty Pryde wig.
Like the tutorial says, I'm still very new to correctly styling a wig, so if any one has any suggestions or tips, I'm always open to hearing them! I got a lot of help on the Arda Wig forum before I bought the wig and how to go about cutting/styling it.
I've gotten lots of questions about how I dye my wigs, flowers, plastics, leathers, etc. So, I created this quick little tutorial to show how easy it is to use Alcohol dyes. I still use RIT for fabrics, but I pretty much use Alcohol dyes for everything else in life now.
Especially wigs. Dear cosplay gods, this makes dying wigs SUPER easy! Just put the wig and dye in a zip lock bag, shake-shake, and presto! That, or put the dye in a spritz bottle and spray away! Great for creating pastel colors, vertical gradients, or using multiple colors that need to blend into each other in strange patterns.
I buy my ink at Jerry's Artarama, but I also order the 4oz versions (super amazing for wigs) off their web site, since they don't carry the "larger" sizes in store. www.jerrysartarama.com/discoun…
As per ~tjckhhsa's request, here is a photo of the peregrine cardboard templates & their lengths in inches. NOTE: These templates were used as a guideline only (and extend to the pivot point only for placement purposes) and any excess fabric that was in the way got removed, see pictures of the finished feathers for example.
