The advantage to being a cosplayer in 2012 is that we now have lots of great wig sources available to us from sellers that tell us if they are able to be dyed. If you want to go less expensive, check around ebay. If they don't tell you up front if their wigs can be dyed, you can always send them a message. I've had luck dying wigs from www.arda-wigs.com and I know that www.amphigory.com will tell you in the descriptions of each wig or brand if the fibers take to dye. Good luck--it seems like an ambitious project!

Your dress looks adorable and I love the colors. Is it by any chance her Merines Outfit your working on?
Yes it is, I shoulda mentioned that thats her merines outfit I'm working on. Are you going to animeNEXT, I'll be debuting it there and I believe there's a topic for tales in the animeNEXT forum as well(here and THE animeNEXT forum).

You went friday for the tales of the abyss promotion? I only went saturday and it was my first time there and I got lost and everything xD I only made it to the sunrise panel but I believe I caught the end of the bandai panel since it was in the previous hour in the same room. I didn't really buy all that much though, I only got nabari no ou and my lelouch body pillow xD I don't buy DVD singles ;p

Its looks awesome, and its so pretty.
It was the box set with the manga on it that I bought I would like to go to animeNext but I don't know how to get there nor know anyone that can take me up there. If I can, I would finish early my cosplay.

Jumping in here to ask a question
My little sister and I are going to be cosplaying Raine and Genis Sage (ToS), but I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions wig-wise?
I'm not very good when it comes to finding good base wigs for things, so any help is much appreciated

http://www.welovecolors.com/

Because my Fiance is always cosplaying Link we found that website. xD
They seriously have tights for men and women in all different colors. Anyway Im popping into this convo... Surprised I didn't a long time ago since I talk with half these people IRL. XD

awsome thanks

I got my "fake flowers" and now I have to figure how which way I should dye them. Maybe I should spray paint them. I'll try not to be too messy with it of course but I wanna do something that'll look smooth /hmm

This wig could work for Genis
http://www.arda-wigs.com/Jareth.html

For Raine Sage:
http://www.arda-wigs.com/MagnumXL.html

You could also used Jareth wig for her as well, you'll just have to cut it and style it like hers. Hope that helps.

Great~ Thanks a lot
I was planning on getting a wig or two from Arda for something different anyway, so it makes it a lot easier to just go there than ebay etc.

Now to actually start planning out the patterns~

I could use that too. I need all the help I can get for my Colette cosplay. I've never made a cosplay before.

The pattern/tutorial thing for her exphere/necklace?
I think I might have it somewhere too. (Not 100% guaranteed though) I might not be able to have a proper look until tomorrow, but I'm certainly happy to search for you.

EDIT: I found them! (I had a copy in my email, haha)
I'm not sure if Ion has the same one (?), but i hope you find it useful, at least :3

I wish I found that ages ago! As I am making a Colette cosplay now. Ah well too late, I already made my necklace.. Well since I am going with my fiance as Lloyd and Colette though we are gonna make her other necklace too, the one Lloyd gives to her as a present. Is there any ideas on how to make that?
