I will post my costume early next week for more feedback and comments.
Also some of the pictures are a bit blurry sorry bout that. I will have a professional photoshoot in the next month for this character. Its all about lighting as well, looks different colors in different light.

I like the cut and color on that wig! If you want to look more like the movie version, you may want to put a few very small dark colored streaks to give it a bit of a gradient look (like real hair). If not, it still looks very hot!! Be sure to post the rest of the costume!^_^

I was thinking about that but all the other ref I have seen the Real Pheonix has flaming red hair not dark streaks at all.
Though my costume is from Xmen 3 the leather uniform, I may try the streaks but Im not a costume person I have no idea how to do it, and I dont want to ruin the wig.
If I were to do it, how do you do it safely?

I would highly reccomend the sharpie method. It sounds horribly ghetto, but it works great,and it's really easy to do! All you really need to do is buy 1 sharpie marker in either dk brown, or black (whichever you prefer), Pin your wig to a wig head, then start streaking at random from root to tip. Put a bit more of the darker color at the base of the scalp since hair tends to be a bit darker at the roots. You won't ruin your wig, since you only color a few strands at a time using this method. When it looks good enough, just rinse out the excess ink in cold water, and let the wig air dry. The streaks may not even be that noticeable when done, but it will give a more natural feel to any wig. I did it once,and now I want to do it to all my wigs! Your wig looks good, but streaking it will add depth to it. Hope that helps!^_^

If you aren't too sure of yourself, just practice a bit underneath the wig first so you won't be scared of messing up. Just grab a small clump of hair and rub the ink downward from as close to the roots as you can get, all the way down to the bottom of the strand. I even just started randomly making downward strokes all over the place. Have you ever put highlights in your hair (or seen somebody else have it done)? Pretty much just do the same thing but holding a marker.

Well I added some color not to much, but Im worried I did the roots wrong, I only did a 1/2 out to make it look as though the roots were growing out but to be honest I don't really like it. I hope I didn't ruin it. I guess I could always part my hair.

I put some streaks in but it doesn't really show up on camera only in person.
When I get home ill take a pic.

You are doing the outfit that she ran around in for about five mins in the beginning of the movie?

I guess, but I dont think I needed to do anything to it. Everyone who has seen the wig knew instantly who it was. I never should done anything. It looks ok, and thankfully I didnt do that much on the scalpe but it is a bit strange looking to see black roots.

It may just be me, but I wish I could undo it. The streaks are hardly noticable so thats fine. You can be the judge when I take a pic later. And because I only did a half a inch of the root I can part it over a bit if I need too. I think its just the very front of the wig I dont like now.
