More Wigs!

Speaking of wigs!

I got some wigs from the Epic Cosplay Black Friday Sale!

They were really inexpensive because it was actually in the clearance section that I chose them from. I tried picking out a wig for a character I really wanted to do and a wig that I could use for several different characters.

In the end I got two Aphrodite styled wigs.
Princess Dark Pink
Caramel Blonde


A small review on them:
These wigs are thick and textured with all the layers they have in them. I find them very easy to work with The bangs, especially, have a lot of hair that makes them very thick and I really like that.
My only concern is that the pink one is really large. Even on the last hooks, it's too big for my head.  (´・_・`)
That's okay, though. Nothing I can't fix for myself!





I'm a little under the weather so I look very tired! ( ´・д・` )



I chose the pink one for a set of cosplays I've been really wanting to do for a long time now. As you can see, I already styled it a bit. 

The cosplay? Nijihara Ink from Moetan! 




The blonde wig will be going towards lots of cosplays, including many Touhou cosplays. <3

I saved a wig today!!!

I haven't updated in a while because I'm getting ready for my trip to Japan as well as enjoying my New Year's week with friends <3.

As for the actual topic for today's post, I saved a wig!
Yep!
One of my friends was about to trash his wig after a bad cut on the bangs (which wasn't his fault). I asked if I could have it and he agreed. He sent it down with an amazing Christmas gift, too. I told him that I could repair the wig and that once I did, we could share it at conventions if he ever needed it again.

The results so far?
If you click the picture, you can read it better!  (^・ω・^ )


And this is just the beginning! I still plan on adding some extensions to it to fully repair the bangs as well as fill in some thin areas AND I'm going to use the rest of the extensions to create two small clip on ponytails for a certain recreation of an old cosplay I will be working on!

I'm quite proud of myself for transforming this wig with just some cutting and styling.

And when I'm done I'll post more pictures!
