Yusei Fudo Wig tutorial v2

A long time ago I did this:

I hope this new tutorial is more helpful and brings even better results! Best of luck, fellow Yusei cosplayers! :3

Even if you're not planning on styling a Yusei wig, I inserted lots of tips and tricks that can be useful for all sorts of wigs with crazy spikes~

Much thanks to :iconex-shadow: and :iconkmrsworld734: for helping me take pictures when my hands were full XD

The best wig I have ever seen, good lord! It's stunning, it looks so soft.. Most wigs look like cardboard ._.

how do you attach them to the wig? do you just sew the armatures to the wig??

While I haven't tried to cosplay in years, I bet these tutorials will also come in handy for things like doll wigs too. (A lot of Ball jointed doll collectors, I'm always seeing posting in the help section of the forums how to get certain kind of wig looks. Spikey hair mostly is answered with: "Just get a fur wig." but styles like Yami's and Yusei's are not easily done with fake fur)

Holy Shit... This just may be the greatest tutorial ever. I'm totally saving this for when I get the materials for my dream cosplay (Yusei)

Cosplaying as him is one thing I've just gotta do before I get older and grow out of 5D's (if I ever do ;-))

This is really going to help me with one of my dream cosplay. Sigma from The Epic of Zektbach. Her hair is really really complex xD

I have a question, is it difficult putting on the wig? Cause you know, don't wanna destroy Yusei's pretty hair. :D

Such an amazing wig! Can I ask you how you actually make the armature attach to the wig? Like, do you actually glue it, sew it, use magic ? O:
Shendin's avatar
Malindachan, I have a question: did you add three sides to your armatures, or is it just a single folded two-sided piece that you supported using some kind of stuffing? The pictures are kind of small so it's hard for me to tell. :hmm:
I still very much love this wig, by the way. :D

Okay, that is a cool Yusei Fudo wig I have ever seen, it look exactly alike.

This wig is absolutely GORGEOUS~! ^3^
Did you ever have troubles with some of the spiky ends falling apart a few weeks/months later by chance? I just wanna be prepared in case anything happens to one of my wigs.

I'm using the spiking technique to style a Black*Star wig for my friend (we're cosplaying as Soul Eater characters and I'm gonna be Kidd) :D
