1) Bought a heat-resistant synthetic curly/wavy/messy wig.. we all know how massive & untamed her hair is. my problem is the original color was brown-gray-white 2) placed the wig on mannequin head & secured it w/ wall pins. 3) colored the top-half with colored hairspray (orange), while manually spreading/ combing the paint w/ my fingers in gloves. Set to dry (30 minutes to an hour is fine) 4) then i clipped the top-half w/ clamps so that i could manually color the bottom-half w/ Kurecolor pens: orange #215 & #206 (can be found in your local bookstores), but i only touched the white & gray streaks only. 5) i left out the brown part at the back so as to retain a shadow effect in photos & protect my gown from staining any orange paint. 6) next i unclipped the top-half and sprayed the rest of the color hairspray at the back the wig to cover the brown left. 7) lastly, i sprayed the whole wig w/ 70% alcohol in a bottle while combing the wig w/ my fingers, for the paint to set down & smell good. 8) set an overnight drying of 24hours at the most.
I did not dye anything here, didn't have enough time to so everything is manually done. But i will probably dye it the next time i cosplay her again, depends on the outcome in photos. for now this will do, it actually looks awesome doesn't it? When i have time, i will edit this submission to an actual Tutorial soon!
**SPECIAL thanks to: and for the tips!!
Will debut this on FANTASY QUEST event this sunday. We have friends from Malaysia & singapore coming to attend it, such as among others so i'm so0o excited to bond w/ them again whee!!
Yo guys, here it finally is (and it's about damn time!) - My Nui Harime Wig tutorial! I hope you enjoy, and I hope this is useful! Don't hesitate to ask any questions about this, and definitely let me see your WIPs/final wigs!
This Tutorial When I started this cosplay, the biggest challenge was figuring out how to support the weight of the helmet in a way that allowed me to wear it comfortably and for a long time.
I searched for people who had done something similar, but I had a hard time finding other cosplayers that had made such heavy headpieces. I thought I'd make this tutorial, with the hope that I'd help someone out there facing the same challenges.
Hope you enjoy!

I took some photo documentation of my Cloud wig while I was working on it, and I figured I'd share to show the process to those who were curious. It's not really a super detailed tutorial, but I added a bunch of information to fill in what I didn't capture with my camera.
Wig styled by me, using 2 Magnum (color 81) wig bases from Arda-wigs.com
