Wohoo! I really love how this wig turned out. The color is even more awesome in real life than it is in these pictures. The customer wanted a slightly modified version of X-Men Legends Rogue; she wanted the bob a little longer and the hair more red than the references she gave me.
The addition of the bangs is not something I want to do again, though. I basically shaved that portion of the scalp cap and poked about 200 small sections of hair through it. My fingers and thumbs hurt for days. o_0
Custom color: Henna base wig and 2 coats of red sharpie.

Thanks everybody!! ^_^
I basically straightened a medium length auburn wig, slapped on two coats of sharpie-based red dye to enhance the redness, shaved a bit of the hair on the plastic scalp off, poked about 200 small sections of white hair into the shaved scalp (ouch), and then cut and curled it.
All in all, about 10 hours of work. I WAY underestimated the time it would take me to add the white part. Oh yeah.
