Oooo, the platinum blonde ones they have are a PERFECT shade for my Kid cosplay!

Yay, thanks for this site.

Currently owning 3 Arda wigs, I must say their color references are spot on. (Not like epiccosplay *grumblegrumblegrumble*)

I found some Mako green pictures though I'm not sure how edited they are.
1
2
3
4

If I find more later of either color I will let you know.

Also, @Myribee, when you click on a color it takes you to the styles available in that color. Just because the main picture they have for that style isn't in the color you want doesn't mean it doesn't come in that color.

Just looked, and Arda has the perfect wig for one of my cosplays. I'm thinking about getting Delilah in either light blonde or platinum. Thanks for the site!

Arda Wig #1
Victoria in Spanish Brown
It's waist length in the back and I get tons of complements on it. (even though I really need to do some upkeep on it)

Arda Wig #2
Luthien in Raven
It's a little past waist length and I have straightened it since this picture. Gorgeous color and wig. (Buy ALL the luthiens! <3)

My Arda wig #3 is the chibi in apple red but I don't have any good pictures of it. (it's their pigtail wig, oooo specialty wig)

@yamibakura, I would avoid crushed velvet. It will just make it look cheap. D: Any black apparel fabric would do.

Edit: Oh you were talking about the designs. If I was making it I would keep it the same material but in a different shade, or just a tiny bit different. Still I wouldn't get velvet.
Yeah his outfit is has different shades in one. I was thinking of just getting a velvet fabric for the cape and the rest in bottomweight stretch sateen. I seen it in person and its easy to sew and lovely too. Garbadine be too heavy tho it does drape abit. Haven't check the casa collection fabric tho.

I'll have to go back to joanns and check them out once more. I'l make my final decision and I will keep in mind about the crushed velvet tho. I'll have to check the appropriated fabric for a person of his time, perhaps renaissance? Must check on it.

Thanks for your advice guys!!

I dk if maybe ya'll just got lucky with Arda, or I have really bad luck, but I HATE Arda, they take forever to email you back about questions (I believe it took them 3 weeks to answer my very simple question that was not posted on their website), it took 3 months for me to get my wig, and the color was WAY off, like to the point that I almost cried when I got it, plus the fact that they are WAY over priced, $45 for a short wig? IDFTS ...

Thanks for the references, Falclon! The Mako Green looks lovely, so hopefully they'll restock the style I need. I think it looks like a great Sailor Neptune color.

Sadly I didn't get much done today. My dad is still in the hospital and I got a pretty naty headache... but tomorrow will be better. =)

Oh wow, really. They were fantastic for me, and I only bought from them after hearing TONS of great reviews about them. I ordered on Sunday, it was shipped on Monday and it go to my house Wednesday morning. And what wig costs that much? My buttercup was just under $40 after shipping and it reaches my bra strap.

O_o really? I was on their site a few days ago, looking for my bf a short blonde wig and the cheapest one I saw was $40 and it was too short =/ And that $40 was BEFORE shipping.

Weird. Was it a lace front or some specialty style?

I think had to be special.. isn't the Magnum and the other popular short styles around like $30? At least that's what I remember when looking for a few of my wig possibilities.

On other news, my dad should be coming home today! Which as an added bonus means fabric shopping, because his hospital is right next to the fabric store. I know that sounds crazy, but we're a family who likes to save money. Even he's excited to save the half hour trip for me.

Aerith wig is almost completely styled. I just need a pair of hands to twirl the pony tail clip and get it to stay that way. I'll add buttons to her dress and finish the jacket later, after I move my sewing supplies to the bigger room. I've decided that's what's killing my motivation. No music, no tv, no nothing. It's too quiet in there. So I'll be sad to see my extra room go empty but I need the noise! (Totally still keeping the closet.)

I'm having such a MAJOR problem finding boots for Kid from Chrono Cross.

I'm even trying to see if I can find someone to make them, but they're the ONLY piece I have left to find to make her outfit complete and it's irritating me.

http://fc02.deviantart.net/images/i/...rono_Cross.jpg

If you guys know where I can find a similar pair of boots to alter or someone who makes shoes, I'd be REALLY grateful. It's driving me nuts! I've been searching for weeks now and it's all I have left to get her stuff gathered!

Also, Zaiten, it's awesome to hear about your dad! I'm really happy for you!

Nope, just the regular wigs.

Actually Magnum was one of the ones I was looking at, and it was $40 when I looked ... maybe my computer has a problem with their site or something, but it's still showing $40 for me, and even if I click it and go to check out, they want to charge me almost $47 after shipping, not gonna happen.
