rosyariel asked: so i'm now thinking of buying another wig to sew the wefts of that one into mine now. i was wondering (and you completely dont have to tell me if its a trade secret!) how you got the bangs so perfect and how you sewed them in? thanks so much!! ♡ (2)
Hi there :D Thank you sooo much, it really means a lot to me to find people who appreciate my work. <3 And I’m all for sharing information, I wouldn’t know anything about cosplay if it weren’t for all this amazing people on youtube and on the internet.
I actually used real wig making thechnique with a wig needle and a crochet needle. I might do a tutorial to show how exactly I made the wig and some do’s and don’ts. It took me a good two to three months to get it right!
If you don’t want to buy or can’t find a wig needle you can get yourself a crochet needle about 0.75, or 0.5mm (the smaller the better) luckily for me I live right next to a wig making shop for drag queens and theatre hahaha so I guess there’s where it all started for me.
What I did to get the bangs so long is I parted the wig where I wanted her bangs to part and then I “stitched” in extra hair on the wefts and the wig net underneath. to “cover it up”.
Here’s the instruction video I learned it from.
I’ll try to make a tutorial of my wig and what it looks like 360° but I don’t have proper studio lighting in my room right now and here in Sweden it’s pretty much like that horror movie 30 days of night when we only have a few hours of sunshine during winter :D
but I’ll try and order the lights this week and I’ll have a video up hopefully by the middle of march?
Hopefully I was somewhat helpful and if you have anymore questions feel free to pm me here or on my Facebook page!
I’d like to see your Ariel wig when you’re done with it :D <3
Love and warm hugs
Anonymous asked: hello! i was wondering if you remember where you got your ariel-red wig from? every red wig i look at is either too bright or too dark
Actually I do, it’s a really cheap synthetic wig from this seller. It’s quite poor on hair like most cheap wigs from china, mine’s two wigs combined! So I’d rather go for two of these to add extra hair (slaughter one and use that hair on the other wig) instead of buying some more expensive one from another seller since you’d probably need to buy at least one extra anyway just to give it that Disney princess volume!
I hope I helped you out!
