Finally done and very proud!
I know it's not a perfect work, but it's my first completely styled wig, so I hope you like it, since >.<

#Progress:

First I made a wire structure sewed into the base wig cap, filled it with paper and covered with tape. After that, I made 3 layers of napkins and glue and covered all the horns with paper clay to finalize. When it was dry I began to glue the wefts with a mix of glue, gelatin and water. It wasn't fun. I dropped the paper cup TREE TIMES on the floor full of this thing, it took me forever to clean it all. I know... I'm messy :(
And then it was just repeated work, glueing forever and ever all the wefts and finalizing the borders with more wefts.
To finish it, the strips were rom the same fabric I used for the collar and the upper body, and then it's done! :D

This wig weights about 4 pounds, I had to sew 4 clips inside the cap to don't let it fall from my head, it was like a helmet LOL

PS: I won first prize at the con with this cosplay, so happy~ <3

Muito obrigada *0*
Gelatina, cola e água, isso aí :D
Os chifres não são colados na peruca, são costurados com uma estrutura de arame na própria peruca! ^.^
