This wig. This character, who's canonical representation is bad for wig references due to his lack of fringe. This is more like it. Y/N?

I am atrocious at wig decisions. Like, the worst person EVER when it comes to this stuff. I was considering FM-Anime (since the high shipping price = $15? That's cheap!) and then read some less-than-favourable reviews and got put off :x
he has more of a Comb-over swoosh bang, rather than no fringe at all. I'd get a wig with longer bangs. As for the first picture, i thought it looked like a really really short straight-across fringe.

... Anyway, DANG I sew fast. I started around 2 and finished at 6:
Meltdown!Miku Dress
if I keep this speed up I'll have my whole cosplay list done by 2012 :O

LOL Went to the mall & Wal-mart today in my Sakura cosplay with my mother-in-law. I was at JoAnn's fabric store & this little boy was yelling "Mommy, mommy come look at the girl with purple hair!" I wish I recorded him. It was so funny. Ether the kid is color blind or dosn't know what pink looks like. The mother told him that he need to keep his mouth shut & she apologized to me. I just laughed it off.

That one does have bangs though? If I get longer ones, chances are I will have to cut them. And last time I had to, that did not go well. I'd rather not risk buggering up another wig when I have so little time to do this cosplay.

I would say go for it. The bangs are long enough they should be easily swept aside, and Cosplay Wig's quality is amazing.


Hat made it here, and now I have to figure out how to remove one of the pins, since it's awkwardly placed, and right where the other pin needs to be. x__o

Aaaand, I mailed FS asking about a wig to match an attachment piece they sell two days ago, and read the reply today. The only wig that matches that has the least amount of styling is shoulder length. So I'm going to have to do some major cutting.
Cutting + Me = Not the best friends ever. I really hope I don't manage to screw it up. ;A;

Ohhhhhh, this cruel world.
I have terrible news.

MY SEWING MACHINE IS BROKEN FOR GOOD.

My beloved 1987 Singer is now irrepairably damaged and I need another machine. T___T Fuck, that machine was what I and my Mom made EVERY costume item with since I was born. And they just don't make machines like that anymore. (My grandma's offered her tank of a 1960 Singer though, so after I see how it runs I may not be shit out of luck.)

I've heard some amazing things about Cosplay Wig, my only hesitation about the wig being that I'd probably need to cut it. And inevitably ruin it. But then again, there's so much leniency in Dave cosplay that it might not be too bad. And my nan may be lovely enough to do it. Or even my mum. But this is swaying me, since it was recommended to me by another Dave cosplayer. But the Cosplay Wig one is so gorgeous I just want to reach into the screen and touch it. And the price on that other one unnerves me, since £12 is very, very, very cheap for a wig and I don't think I can trust it. I've seen good reviews of the seller but... the other wigs I own were around £20 and I think I'm happier with such a price.

I'm gonna go sleep on it, since it's (half) 3 in the morning and I should not make decisions involving online shopping at this time.

....I can't do that. Doesn't work. Only for cons and things can I get up early. Which is a lie, because I end up oversleeping on days I go to cons too. XD

So. Instead of working on my mockup, I end up dancing around in my Miku wig. I also tripped on the muslin and stuff I've got lying on my floor.

I'll....go sew now...XD
