Go to :iconmyroux: in the future. Thanks for all the favs!

Disclaimer: I am not a hairdresser or stylist, and have not trained in any way to style wigs/hair. So be careful, but don't blame me if your wig doesn't turn out how you want. Just keep practicing, and learn from your mistakes as well as mine!

The wig in this tutorial was originally for cosplaying Sora from Kingdom Hearts, but ended up just being practice.Still, it might be helpful for any range of cosplayers. Enjoy! I hope you learned something! ;3

More to come!

that helps a lot, thanks

I'm glad! I want to do another sometime. I'm still searching for a good-quality wig, though.
Miscomunication's avatar
yeah, even though i cosplay Riku, my friend cosplays Sora, and shes not doing too well in finding a decent wig (or anything for that matter) so this will help her a lot
Machimo's avatar
:D
That's great!

I do recommend these sites, however. (My main concern is which color to get - if your friend does buy one, I'd appreciate knowing which/the store she buys it from - and I'm keeping a look out for other good wigs too.)

cool tutorial.
i was wondering,if you use any type of freeze spray on your normal hair,will it stay up all the time?
Machimo's avatar
It should (I haven't done it personally, but I've heard of others using it). However, it's not always good idea, especially to cosplay with or if you're planning to use it a lot, 'cause it can damage your hair if used in great quantities. If you take care of your hair, though, it might be okay.
If you want to do it, make sure you get a bottle (such as the Got2bGlued in my tutorial) which says FOR HAIR on the bottle. Good luck!
