Making Hetalia Curls?

Hi, I am planning on cosplaying Italy from Hetalia in the future, but I'm not sure on how to make Italy's curl.

If I buy this short un-styled wig for Italy, I'm not sure if I'll have enough fibers to make the actual curl. Should I use extensions? Or would it be okay to snip some fibers from the back of the wig and build up on that?

... How exactly would I make Italy's curl? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

i'm pretty sure that one is wayyyyy too orange for italy. and yes you would need extensions.

edit: oh btw there's N. italy and S. italy and each have the curl going a different way, so definitely provide a ref. picture for those who aren't hetalia savvy ^_^

there was a tutorial on how to make the curl but i can't remember the link now but it's on here just use the 'search this thread' function ^_^

Search "antennae" on the forums and you should get a couple tutorials. Here's one, and she even makes it into a curl at the end!

If I were to do that, I would probably get a very thin gauge wire and kind of weave it into the wig. That way you can kind of have a template and then just kind of follow along the wire with the fibers and stray to your heart's content. I've had to make 'antennae' in the past and that seems like a sensible solution.

Wow! Great tutorial. I was needing to know the same thing, except for my brother's Canada cosplay. Thanks!

Ive seen some pretty sweet hetalia cosplays were the cosplayer actually just took a piper clean the same color as their wig, stuck it in, and voila! i know it sounds like a bit of a strange idea but if done right the results can be fantastic

Pipe cleaner however should be your last! Resort! Too many times it looks fake. Def look into doing the tutorial listed above with wire!!!!

ACTUALLY, 5 Wits sells a specific Italy wig- styled and with the curl. It's cheap, good quality and US based- so...the ideal wig.
