Hey everyone! I'm another one doing a Merida costume this year (hopefully finishing in time for SDCC). I was pretty sad that I bought my Arda wigs before the new long Glinda came out. I bought the Glinda and a Claudia and am splicing them together slowly but surely. I didn't like the pumpkin color, personally. It was a little too... well, pumpkin. I think I ended up with the dark copper red, which is actually looking pretty good.
Here's a progress pic! SO MUCH HAIR and I'm only about 2/3 done. It's really frizzy right now, after I finish sewing the wefts in I'm going to defrizz it and recurl.
