I'm attempting an anti form Sora myself and totally fell in love with your wig (I would steal it if I lived closer to you). However, after scouring your wig pictures, I noticed I couldn't see your ears, most likely due to it blending in with the blackness that is you.

So I was wondering, are your ears hidden by the wig, or are they visible, just painted black with the makeup?
My ears are about half-visible while I'm wearing this wig...we have to paint them, and I tend to spend the next week trying to get paint out of my ears. ^.^

Awesome tutorial; I'm definately passing this on to a friend who wants to cosplay anti sora. :3
The reason I use Got2B is because its meant to wash out of regular hair...so its got an extremely tight hold all the way up until water is added. ^.^ I actually started using this fact later on...I'd color the hair, spike the hair, and then wet the spike to smooth it out and blend the colors.

I would assume so. ^.^ I switched to Got2B gel/glue, but you have to be careful to match light wigs with light glue and dark wigs with dark or clear gel...
There are probably a number of products that exist I haven't even begun to play with yet! o.o If it works, definitely let us know!

I work at a hairdresser's shop and I'm getting one of the (or a couple) of the stylists to help me with my wig and one of them said that the hard shell of soap(like hard soap, scrapping off the top layer) works well for spikes is this true? Or...?
I haven't heard of this before, but it does make sense...soap hardens when dry, and is slick when wet, so it seems like about the same concept as regular hair-gel. I'd give it a try! o.o

Thanks for the tips! ^.^ I had been wondering what hardware-level glues would work on wigs...

Oh and there's a polyurethane gloss called "minwax":

It is meant to be a clear gloss finish on top of painted props. However by accident I found how ridiculously hard the paintbrush bristles I was using became. And it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to UNstiffen them. They're like wood.

I've got some very long haired cosplays and rather than sit there at the con trying to untangle the hairs, I'm thinking of brushing the last 2 inches of the hair ends with this stuff to see if it prevents hair tangling.

it's the same as the Punky from Both Cosworx.com & amphigory.com
it's also often refered to as a Tina Turner wig, simply because it's the hairstyle she was famous for

Would you say the purple is light or dark? I found another wig not on cosworx and they have a black rooted that fades into light purple. I think it would work but Im not 100% sure.

Yes, the original tina punky used was black roots with light purple tips. All the shaded dark-blue-ish color in the middle areas was the hand-colored part.
(Cosworx doesn't have that color right now, it looks like.)
