Wig Styling with Ishida Uryuu



Yeah, apparently sewing isn't the only talent of everyone's favorite Quincy. :lol:

Disclaimer: I am not a professional hairdresser, nor had I received any formal training so follow my advice at your own risk! This is just what I've learned over years of cosplaying, making mistakes and learning from them.

Okay, so over the time we've been sharing our cosplay photos online, we've gotten countless questions on how we style our wigs, so I thought of making this silly yet (hopefully) educational tutorial to guide fellow cosplayers with wig styling. :)

In this tutorial, Ishida Uryuu will teach you how to customize a wig for cosplaying Uchiha Sasuke! May also be applicable for other characters with similar hairstyles like like L from Death Note or Jin Kazama from the Tekken series. We had so much fun making this tutorial, and we can only hope that you guys somehow learn something from it. :D

The wig used was a monotop (no artificial scalp) wig with synthetic fibers. We got it from a local wig seller; they don't do international shipping I'm afraid.
