You can get hair glue at Zellers and Wal-Mart for fair prices depending on where you are. If you screw up a small part, that's all you have to wash out.

Ah, ok. Thanks, you've been a lot of help. I'll probably buy some and do some test runs first to see how it turns out

Is it okay to post this here?

I finally styled my own Larxene wig, this tutorial helped get me started. It still needs work though, I want the hairline to look more natural.

To have a natural looking hairline, you're going to need to have a semi widows peak. Like if you pull back your hair, look at how it... well, looks. It's widows peak-ish. And most Axel wig tutorials have a widows peak help thing on them.

Also, your wig looks really good so far.

Your wig looks really good. I'm glad that my tutorial helped you with it!

One small recommendation for pull back wigs like Larxene is to sew in Toupee Clips long the front of the wig so that the wig dose not shift and show your real hair line.

Ebay has the cheapest prices and you will want the large ones.

I wish I'd known about the Toupee Clips before I'd finished my wig lol! Though I could probably still sew them onto it. I did find that spirit gum helped keep the wig in place and also hid my hairline. Thanks so much for the compliments. ^__^

The Toupee Clips are easy enough to sew them in and I find them more convenient then Spirit Gum.

I'll definitely order those Toupee Clips for my Larxene wig and some other wigs I have. Thanks for the links!

So awesome! I wish there were step-by-step pictures! But, I kinda get the idea with this and the pics of the finished product. I just happened to have a yellow wig lying around from an un-finished cosplay and an organization robe, so I'm kinda doing spur-of-the-moment. Hope I can do it in time.

Does anyone have any good base wig suggestions for Larxene ?

I've been looking on cosworx and wasn't sure which one would be ideal and some of the slicking styles on Ebay look like a party wigs.

Really, you're gonna need something that's meant to slick back. Nothing on coscom does that without changing. And eBay is hard..I would use the melinda wig from arda, in light blonde if you wanna look more realistic, or yellow if you wanna look more cartoony. Other then that, lacefront..the melinda you will be tomake shorter, but the length will be good for making her antenna things
