Chun Li cosplay Waistband and Hair buns Help
I'm doing my best to get this completed by Fanime or AX, but I'm still hitting some walls. I have some questions for some of the past Chun Li cosplayers out there.
I don't plan on getting that dragon design on there (although it would be nice)...but my plan is to buy elastic material and somehow manage to get it to hook together in the back or side. I know some people have used cotton or other material for this. What have you used? And how did you get it to stay put?
I haven't come across a real name for Chun Li's head pieces and I'm starting to think there really isn't one. I just know that Capcom stated they're made of silk as a symbol for her mourning for her father. That aside, I've got the material, but I know it's not as simple as wrapping it around your hair and wrapping the ribbon around it...or is it? O.o
How have you guys dealt with it? I honestly don't know where to start with these.
Some of my concerns include:
-puffy part needs to look smooth and rounded. (it doesn't cave in on the hair underneath)
-'wavy' effect (because the material scrunches
-where to put the string part that gets tied into a ribbon.
Any help is much appreciated!
