Loveless Wig Help (Yayoi)

Hiya!

I'm cosplaying as Yayoi from Loveless and I need some advice on styling his hair and making the ends of the wig white. ^^

Here's a pic -


Thank you! XD

welp, the main problem with his hair is that you CAN'T CAN'T CAAAAN'T bleach a wig, so you'll probably need to start with a white wig.

Get a nice long white wig with bangs (Ivy, perhaps), and get a bunch of sharpies in a nice dark green and black. Bust them suckers open, mix the colors together with some rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and spray it on the wig.

You could also just sharpie directly onto the fibres to keep it more where you want it. I'd avoid straight out dyeing since you could slip the ends in and you won't be able to undo it :\

Always rinse your wig thoroughly with cold water, otherwise you'll get sharpie on EVERYTHING.


Another way is white extensions sewn into the wig? His hair is a pain in the butt >_x

Amphigory has a wig that might work, the Luna.

You can get it in black with white ends.

That could work, depending on the colors. I always saw his hair as a dark green... but that might just be my TV.

Black would work fine, though, since most people just recognize him by his hair. Having a Ritsuka or a Yuiko could help recognition too :3

XD dark green is his hair colour, so we're gonna stick to that. ^^

That seems like a good idea! I'll keep that in mind, just looking for other options right now. ^^
