Hikaru no Go
Last Updated: 05-11-2006
Hikaru is a costume I've been planning for a long time, and purchased the wig supplies for sometime in 2005. I finally decided to get off my ass and put him together for AniZona, since he was street clothes and I needed a comfortable costume. And dude, he really is comfortable. I want to wear him every day.. well, except for the whole binding and horrible wig thing.
And yes, the wig is horrible. I recognize and admit it. It had so much potential to be fabulous, but several things got in my way. Mostly I ran out of time, meaning I didn't put enough hair in for the bangs. I also live alone, and so couldn't get anyone to cut the back of the wig for me, leaving a choppy, too-short mess. Add the Arizona humidity pulling the hair down, and you've got a recipe for disaster. I'm planning the remake at the moment, since I <3 the outfit so much, which will involve combining two wigs rather than inserting loose hair into one.
