This tutorial is really old! XD
Please check out my new one!

(end update)

a few of my buddies asked for me to take WIP pictures when I mentioned I was making a Yusei wig, so I did :3

I hope the tips I threw in there are helpful for cosplayers who need some wig styling ideas.

One thing I forgot to throw in there: use gravity to your advantage! I didn't really have to do it for Yusei, but for wigs where you have to get spikes that stick straight up in the air, pin the wig to the styrofoam head and hang it upside down while you style it (that's how I pulled off my Yami wig) XD

Yusei is (c) Kazuki Takahashi

I know this isn't about your wig, but I was wondering what did you use for the orange spheres on your coat? They look so amazing in your pictures. c:

Hey there!^^
I checked out both tutorials and I think they are really helpful (especially the second)!
I've noticed the orange things from Yusei's jacket lying in the background of some of your photos...I really wonder how to make them. Could you tell me please? I would be soooooo grateful if you could give me some tips!! I may be good in sewing, but I'm such a loser when it comes to crafting things...>_<

Thanx in advance!! =)

This is AMAZING! You really did a fantastic job. That is a quality cosplay wig. :D
Question: How does Aqua Net stack up against Got2B Glued? I've been using Got2B and it's a little heavy so I'm wondering if I should make the switch.
Malindachan's avatar
This tutorial is pretty old lol; I have a link in the comments box for the newer tutorial.

When I started using Got2B, I never went back to Aqua net; I always thought Got2B stuck better. If it's too heavy, then try using it more sparingly; it doesn't take a whole lot to do the job. The reason I use glue in the very tips of the spikes is because it helps hold them together well enough that I don't need as much hairspray.

I see. And sorry about not seeing the newer tutorial. ^^;
Sounds good! Now that I think about it, I am using quite a bit of Got2B. I'll cut back. Thanks for answering my questions! ^_^

Totally going to ignore the abuse of the Harry Potter book. xD No I'm joking. This tutorial really helped me with a wig I need to style!! <3
Malindachan's avatar
lol, that wasn't abuse, that was pimping!
No HP books were harmed in the making of this tutorial XD

Though, I do have a newer tutorial that I posted in the artist comments box that might be more helpful :3

Yu-Gi-Oh series probably has the most strange hairstyles of all but I have to say you nailed this one! It looks very good, best what I have seen - EVER! So you can be proud of our wig styling skills. And I'm very happy you share these WIP photos with us. It helps a lot other cosplayers.
