Juvia Wig?

Ugh! I can't make Juvia's wig! You know, the one with the curls? Any ideas?

For starters this should go in the wigs sub-forum: http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=62
You'll get more help there. I would suggest maybe using foam to make the shape and then gluing the hair over it.

In the future, adding a reference picture helps clear up confusion and get you faster replies. I agree that foam is the best chance you have at making that shape possible. You may need to build it with multiple pieces of foam.

The ways I have seen it done are on high heat wigs with PVC n glue. They used got2b glue n coated the tips of the wig then wrapped n pinned it around the PVC. They then used a blow dryer to hold n settle shape.

I did it with just got 2 be and a large curling iron... it held up really good at the con too, Just used a lot of those alligator clips to hold all the curls in place and together while they dried. Wig was heat resistant ...

I forget what wig it is, it's something a bit past shoulder length from Arda, and that is after running around like a freaking MORON a previous day and that is day 2 of wearing it so it's a little fuzzy in places because long story, I had no time that con to fix ANYTHING that was mine.

A couple of Juvia cosplayers wrote down how they did their curls on their juvia wigs if you search for the cosplyers on here in the costume section.

I pretty much improvised mine after reading what people did with theirs. I used styling glue (like a heck lot!) after I heated up the edges of the hair that I wanted to curl. If your wig is heat resistant, then curl the ends of the hair over something round, like an empty toilet paper roll and let the hair cool down. Once cooled down, it'll have a curl shape, but to make it stay the way it is you'll need to clip it together and then I used a lot of styling glue to glue the curls in place. Wait a couple of days until it hardens and ta-dahhhh, it's done and sturdy. :3

I can do a tutorial for you (I'm not that great when it comes to writing down descriptions of how to do something) since I have to redo my Juvia wig again if you want. But it won't be the best tutorial. Just be enough to get a wig styled to have it look pretty enough. 8D

Not sure if you still need any help on this, but if you do I posted a tutorial a while back about how I did my wig. Hope it helps! Link: http://holly-batali.deviantart.com/a...Tail-303665388
