Agreed with animenerd. I've seen people that take wire, shape it to the preferred structure, and glue the wig fibers to it.

EZ Felt works well too! Roll it up like a hot dog, shape it, sew the ends to the wig mesh, and glue the fibers to the EZ felt. Best part is, I've seen EZ Felt sheets at walmart for $0.23 each. They come in a variety of colors so you should be able to find a matching color to your wig.

wow thanks!
I wouldn't have ever thought of that...so glad I asked
I'll give it a try (though I think I'll have to buy another wig to get enough hair for that lol I'll see how it goes at first)

edit: also, @sillymyway: "Agreed with animenerd. I've seen people that take wire, shape it to the preferred structure, and glue the wig fibers to it."

you mentioned glueing the wig fibers to the wire, what glue would be used?

though if this is inconvenient I'll just stick to tape.
