For my w ig, I'm going to be using the stubbing technique, but my character doesn't have a ponytail, rather a bun. (Saber from Fate Stay Night and the other series). So should I still go the route of a short wig and extensions, or should I just get one long wig and cut the length to use for my wefts and braid and bun (which will be glued over a convex Styrofoam base)?
Or you can make two mini stubs that are just big enough to anchor the foamcore to, instead of stubbing the whole wig: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2967241/
However, if you want ALL of the hair to be down in the back (i.e., an actual bob), no stubbing is needed, you can just use a short wig + clip-on extension set.
I'd say just section off more fiber for the bangs / forelocks, add a back part, and put the base wig in pigtails: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3088009/
how would you make the stubs for this character http://www.zerochan.net/862362 (the white one)
cuz i'm trying to make a similar wig but i don't know how to make the stubs since her hair is in a sort of bob
This IS the tutorial?! ^.^ Just click on the thumbnails to be taken to the next photo / tutorial step. (Or, for an overview, access my cosplay.com gallery: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/58829/)
Do you still have the the tutorial for the ponytails? I cant seem to access it. I hope you do cause i could really use it right about now lol
I just wanted to thank you for this and your other wig tutorials! Very helpful, very clear, very rocking. I know it's very time consuming to photograph and write out a tut, so I appreciate you taking time out to share your knowledge.
How does one keep a wig with high, long, and thick ponytail (like Belldandy's)? T~T
I followed this tutorial but I think I did something wrong along the way. D:
you are a LIFE SAVER!! i really needed this tutorial for my Judith cosplay ^^. thanks for sharing the knowledge
I'm sure you get this all the time, but thank you so much for all the effort and time you put into this tutorial! I have to do two different wigs soon that your tutorial will be very helpful for.
Sure, there's technically no difference between a ponytail that's centered in the back and one that's more to the side of the head^^ Just make sure the wig is long enough so all of the fiber can pulled up to that spot so you can stub it.
Would this tutorial work with a side ponytail too? (Like Akita Neru: http://media.photobucket.com/image/akita%20neru/Akia_Nekoi/35066-187199.jpg?o=21 )
Thank you so much for taking time to make this! =3 It's really helpful. Also, your wigs are sooooo beautiful. <3
thanks a lot for this tutorial ^.^ you saved a lot of costumes and wigs xD
