My real wonder though, is where you get all those artificial flowers~ I'm British, so no Jo-Anns, and shipping is usually astronomical from American websites. I was looking at wholesale from China but there must be an easier way I'm missing. Most job lots on eBay come in sets of two dozen or more, which is just too many of the same flower. Any thoughts? Thanks
bit late.... but you can get them from hobbycraft!

Hey, I was thinking of using multiples of this wig http://wigsecret.com/Details.cfm?ProdID=248&category=3 in champagne blonde 22, for the braid. I've bought wigs from here and they are really thick, amazing quality. Thoughts?

Hello!! Umm, I just had a quick question! Well, see, I bought the Delilah wig from Arda for my Rapunzel and it ended up working pretty well but it wasn't thick enough so how many wefts do you think I should order to make it thick enough?

This is the wig I'm talking about: http://arda-wigs.com/products/delilah

And these are the wefts: http://arda-wigs.com/products/long-weft

As for the Godiva wig, I wanted to do that one but it was out of my price range at the time. I think you should go for it!!
Cosplays in progress
Ariel [The Little Mermaid]-blue dress 25%
Alphonse Elric [Fullmetal Alchemist]
Fem!Romano [Hetalia]

Finished Cosplays:
Pikachu [Pokemon]- Anime Boston 2010
Belle [Disney's Beauty and the Beast]
Hungary [Axis Powers Hetalia]
Tina Belcher [Bob's Burgers]
Hinata Hyuga [Naruto Shippuden]
Rin Nohara [Naruto Shippuden]
Euphemia Li Britania [Code Geass]

I made a post like this in the Wigs and Hair forum but I'll copy paste it here too.

So I tried to make my own Rapunzel wig and failed miserably. After I recover from the money loss, I would like to try again. But this time, I would like to try to make it with a detachable braid good for running and playing, something I haven't seen a tutorial for. I would also like it to go over my shoulder. If anyone has any advice on where to start, I would be grateful. Thank you!

Hello! I have a question. I'm currently making a Rapunzel wig and when I tried it on it really hurt my neck. What do you use to hold the weight off your neck? Thank you so much.

First off...That's the one I used!

In terms of thickness, I'd say it's very good as far as wigs go. At least compared to others I've worked with. Wigs in general are never very thick. Example, if you put a tie around one wig, the ponytail would be thicker than the average persons. Because the colour is actually a bit of a mixed tone, I don't think it will be easy to find extensions that match ONLINE...but if they're in the middle or underneath close-enough will be fine.

Now, a few points...

1. If you're planning on wearing it loose, one will be fine. Especially on a budget. But if you're wearing it out for Halloween, it's going to tangle and need high maintenance. If you're planning on putting it into a braid, you'll need at LEAST 4 for an accurate one. 2 wigs will probably give you a braid about 3 inches wide. I used foam tubes for my base and still needed FOUR wigs to properly cover them. Too bad, since I was planning on still having one loose to wear down.

2. It does not look the colour on screen. It's much more or a natural blonde in person. In some light's it photographs a bit darker than I would like, but usually with flash it has a beautiful golden blonde to it.

3. It does tangle something fierce!!! It was ALMOST hell to separate the sections to wrap and braid etc etc etc. I had to dig up a LOT of patience. Even if you're leaving it long and straight, you'll find the same thing when you try to separate the wefts from one wig and separate them in the base to sew the additional wefts in. Though I found the easiest way to cut the one wig apart was to lay it flat, fresh out of the bag, wig cap laying down ( so, the netting part that goes on your head facing up ) and cut from the bottom wefts up, lifting them off the base wig 1 by 1 as you go.

4. If you're doing the braid, you will need a lot more than 2 wigs.

One wig worn down with flash:

Looks more dark gold here:

Four wigs, 3 foam tubes, a can of hairspray and an eternity of patience later:

Good luck! If you have any other questions, let me know.
