Radical Edward Wig Commission

Here we have a wig of Ed from Cowboy Bebop, one of my favorites! It was difficult to try to find a middle-ground between accurate, natrual, and messy-- while still making it believable and NOT messy. I think I achieved what I wanted!

I'm really hoping the client will give me permission to photograph this one on a model, because a wighead /really/ doesn't do the volume justice!

The base was a Jareth from Arda Wigs in Cherry Red, which I would only suggest purchasing if you don't mind going in with a red sharpie to color the thick tan wefts with. Eesh!

What did you use to style it? Because I've been wanting to style mine but havn't been sure of what exactly to use.

I just use Aquanet, the cheapo hairspray you can get at the drugstore for a dollar. :3

The weft threads you mean? At the base of the wig? Did they show a lot for you no matter what, then?

I can look into seeing what I can do about that.

Hi!

Yeah, not just the thread itself, but the fabric portion that the thread is sewn through, too. It could have been a defect, but there was a severe bald spot on the very top of the wig where two wefts were sewn flat-ways facing away from each other. So I had to do a lot of hand-coloring and heat training to get that spot covered up as best I could.

I also styled a Hiei wig with a Black Jareth that had the same difficulty with holes on top, but since the wefts were also black, it was much easier to hide things.

But yeah, after doing all that they're only really noticeable if you're up close, so that's good!

Hmmm. The absolute crown? I'll check out some of the other ones and see if they're like that as well. If so, I'll be sure to address it. Thank you!
