You definitely can style wigs, but you need to be gentle with them. You might want to get one with pigtails already in it if you can find one - or else the area where you part the hair may look a little bit weird/fake.

You can work on a wig best if you pin it to a wig head that is clamped to a table or otherwise held still. When I did my wig for Nuriko (upsweep, two buns, with bangs) I did not have a wig clamp and it took me several hours of cursing the wig, the head and life in general.

A sturdy wig clamp, lots of bobby pins, and wig T-pins will do you wonders. :)

Oh, I know. It was one of those "what do you MEAN the con's TOMORROW?" things. I'd never had to cut a wig before, so I put it off until I just.. couldn't.. put it off anymore.

Well, if it's lavender, odds are it won't look all that "real..."
