Would it be smart to just leave my hair color...(it's brown) and just style it like Germany's? I'm trying to avoid getting a wig >_>

Phwee lol you're doing Doitsu now? I suggest, if you don't want a wig but want Germany's color, either getting your hair colored, or finding a reeeeeeally good colored hairspray and attacking your head.

I was thinking of the Hairspray idea, but would it flake off after awhile? *sigh* All of this for the sake of cosplay XD.

I DID consider coloring it...but my mom said flat out "No." T_T

XD Everything is for the sake of cosplay!

I think if you get the right hairspray it wont, but I'm no expert on hair products XD;; -brushes and goes- I would seek help in the wig & eyes section for that.

Spellmered! Most people on the hair thread will discourage you from using colored hairspray like the ones used on halloween and spirit days in high school. It does not look good nor does it cover compleatly. I would suggest getting a semi-permanate wash out dye. I like to use Natual Instincts. They sell it with the regular hair dye. It lasts a few weeks and if you dye your hair like a week in advance, it still should be bright enough. I wouldn't dye it the day before, because then you have no time to fix it if it's not right. I'd do the strand test the box suggests to make sure to get the right color (I didn't do it and now I have really dark brown hair)

The wash out color is the only thing my mom will let me do. And it doesn't ruin your hiar because it has natural oils and comes with a conditioner. And it doesn't smell bad.

RANDOM! I really want to do Canada now! I just have way too many cosplays

Kim! I know...I have no idea how I'm going to explain to my parents the giant scythe I'm getting commissioned. Especially since they told me not to spend money on cosplay xD I really want to do Canada for AX, but I already have like five cosplays I want to wear. Grah....

The thing is convincing my mom this xD, I'm geussing guys don't really dye their hair as much as girls do, even if it's temp ._. Say if I do it a week before, will it wash out after I'm done with it? How long?

@Spellmered: It depends on which brand you choose (as far as I know, Loreal stays quite long) and your hair type (some people can keep the color really long, some other, like me, can only keep for some period of time). Sometimes the shampoo you use may affect the color too (better not use Clear or Head n Shoulder if you want the color to stay)

@Saru: Man, I told my Mom this morning that I was crossplaying, and the next thing she did was questioning my gender

Spellmered! ha ha sorry, I automatically assume that everyone meet on the internet is a girl because I am one xD I can see why you're mom has issues with the dye. I dyed my hair black using Natural Instincts Nutmeg, and it stayed for maybe a month. You could always use a clarifying shampoo to make it wash out faster. As Kin said, it depends on your hair type and what your original color is. The rule of thumb is to go two shades above or below your natural color so the dye doesn't stain. It may give you some cool high lights though.

I just recently used a dark brown to dye out my streaks, so instead of bright blond streaks, I have light brown xD

Kim! Oh geez, that sucks *hugs* I got looked at like a transvestite when I mentioned it at the Gay Straight Alliance. I don't think my mom realizes that I want to dress up as a boy yet. xD

I actually like that wig a lot. It would need a good trimming, but I don't mind. Amphigory actually has some good wigs. That's where my America got her wig and honestly it's the best America wig I've seen online or otherwise.

[EDIT] IT DOESN'T COME IN BLOND ANY MORE!!! X A Xllll

It really depends on what brand you get from Cosworx. There's three brands. I liked the wig that I *FINALLY* got for Germania a lot, and it came from Cosworx.

You should have seen the convo I had with my mom about Cosplaying..and getting a wig. I had to SHOW her examples so she woulden't think I'm off my rocker : D

I don't even want to try convincing her getting the Horse whip for Germany...>_< That will cause her to worry more then she should XD

Spellmered! I just dye my hair when I'm at school (I dorm at college) when my mom's not looking. I'm sorry she's all pissy about it. My mom has no realized that I cosplay boys yet. I'm waiting for it. I want to get a riding crop just for the hell of it. It's be fun! xD I need handcuffs for Fem!Bari anyway *evil chuckle*

Oh god, I can see it now already XD It's that the riding crop works so WELL with Ludwig it's not even funny. Unless they sell it at the con, I don't think I can get that past her lol.

So, my friend is also playing Prussia, and my other friend is going to try to be America. (it's going to be her backup cosplay though ^_^)
