molihua10 asked: I'm trying to do a Kyoko cosplay, so finding your tumblr has been very helpful! Could you tell me which base wig you used for Kyoko's hair? Also, you mentioned that you bought a ponytail clip; was that to harvest for wefts, or did you use the clip in some way? Thanks so much!
I think I got 2 Clovers from Cosplay.com in dark red http://shop.cosplay.com/clover.html one to use as a base nd another to harvest for wefts. I got it because I loved the color however I would definitely not recommend it at all, it was terrible to put up into a ponytail because of how the wefts are made.
I got the long ponytail clip in Maroon from Arda: http://arda-wigs.com/products/long-clip-ponytail
I basically took the entire wig apart and remade it alternating wefts from the Arda ponytail and the wefts from the harvested wig. This was to mix the colors so that the color difference in the maroon from Arda and the dark red wouldn’t be noticeable. They were very close in color anyway but i’m a stickler for things like that(and i hate doing things the easy way apparently).
for the pony tail I followed a tutorial on foam core ponytails so I could get lots of volume in the ponytail without it being pure hair and super heavy. the tutorial is a series of photos here: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2531977/
If I were to do it over again though I would have just gotten arda’s jeannie in maroon and combine it with another long ponytail clip. :http://arda-wigs.com/products/jeannie
I hope this helps! if you have any other questions about anything feel free to ask!!
I just finished brushing this sucker out, it probably took about 10 hours over the course of a few days. This wig is 55 inches long and 7 years old! I haven’t brushed it in at least 4 years and it still looks gorgeous. I also haven’t treated it nicely, letting it roll around, loose and un-braided, in a box for some of those years.
I’m not sure where I got this wig, but it was originally for the first version of my Freya costume. I found that it is wonderfully heat resistant and I’m going to repurpose it for my remake costume after I style it properly this time.
eclecticdancer asked: Hi! I really like your work ^_^ I as just wondering though, what did you use to make the Chobit ears? I've been looking at the picture and I can't seem to figure it out XD
It’s made 100% out of worbla and paint. For the hinges I just poked a hole through both the ear halfs and I made a tube of worbla that fit through the holes and put little balls on the ends of the tubes to keep the ear halfs in place. I then covered it up with a dome of worbla to create the circles on the ears.
The Remake of Freya from Chobits - The Ears
Almost finished with these. I just want to make them all glossy and attach a back portion to it so I’ll be able to secure it well to my wig and also get some retractable usb cords attach inside the ears. That’ll all have to wait until the paint fully dries on these though.
