Where can I get wefts from--I found the color I needed for the wig, but Cosworx only listed it as 'Dark Cherry' so I don't know where to go to to get more wefts.
I couldn't find any on Cosworx, but is that just me? Did I miss something? (That wouldn't be the first time XDDD)

EDIT:
Oh! Nevermind! I found wefts on Cosworx XDDD
I guess I wasn't looking hard enough!

You probably hear this all the time but this was so helpful! Thank you! ^__^ I was having trouble trying to figure out what to do with this wig I'm working on.

I'd love to have a thread to discuss these "advanced" techniques and post links to other tutorials that are scattered around cosplay.com and the net.

Here's my tutorial on How to make your own wefts using a sewing machine:

OMG your wefts come out SO much nicer than mines!
I wish you could make mines!

I'm having trouble pulling a long wig back into a ponytail. I've tried braiding the sections and then pulling them one by one back to the desired base of the ponytail, but I can't seem to get it smooth.
Do you suggest cutting the lengths off to hand-make a pony that would attach onto the formed base you describe in your tutorial? If so, any hints to that nature? Cutting a 4-ft wig is kinda scary.
I'm also having trouble keeping the wig on my head. Egh, I'm such a noob. >-<

Thanks for all this lovely help, but I heard from a friend that with her sewn wefts the hair falls out! Is this usually the case?

Nope, home-made wefts are just as good as store-bought ones if you do it right. Your friend probably didn't seal the fiber properly; when you use your sewing machine to make wefts, for example, you need to stitch across the fiber multiple times with a very small stitch (as seen in my tutorial.)

This was so helpful! And your Fran wig looks gorgeous I read all of your tutorials and now think I understand the general process. However, I still don't know if I want to make a homemade wig for my cosplay because it's my first time. I do have one question though. Compared to buying a wig, is making a homemade wig cheaper, more expensive, or more or less the same price?
