Oh right, dA is a thing... Maybe one day I'll update some things. I've been bad at updating all across the internet, tbh.

2015 was the worst year of my life. I’ve had some bad years in the recent past, but nothing collectively takes the cake compared to this year. So I can’t speak positively about it at all. I really don’t have high hopes for 2016 either, because realistically I don’t see it getting any better. The rest is rambling and I honestly don’t expect anyone to read it. It’s just a place for me to put my depressive thoughts, which, let’s be real. No one should be subjected to that. I generally hate the end of the year. I know I’ll be having my birthday, which honestly it’s just always a depressing da

Happy birthday *^*

Happy birthday! :cake: 
Um, could you give me some tips for a wig I'm making? See, I'm going to cosplay as a character with lavender hair, but the wig I'm using is Dark purple. I'm wondering how to lighten the color. It's one of those plastic-y, synthetic wigs.
Sorry, I don't check dA often, so I don't know if this is useful anymore... but there's no real way to lighten wig fibers unfortunately. You can take a light wig and dye it darker with inks/etc-- and even that can only work so much. You can't successfully dye a white wig black, for example. At best you'll get gray.
Since it's plastic, you're basically coating it with a thin layer of dye, which will only tint the fibers. To cover it completely opaque, you'd have to paint them, which you can't really do with wig hair.
Anyway, I hope you found a solution for your wig! If you can't find the find color wig, it's best to start with a lighter color and work up from there.
Wow, to be honest, I'd almost completely forgotten about this comment ^^;;
Well, I ended up with the wig as it was, and it wasn't too bad. But from now on, I'm not gonna use any synthetic wigs.

Nonetheless, thank you for your advice!
glad it all worked out!
