Hi, just tell me if I'm doing anything wrong 'round here because this is my first post on these forums!
I'm going to be cosplaying for my first time soon, and I'm thinking of dressing as John Egbert
from the Homestuck webcomic series (except with this outfit
, though that isn't very relevant right now). Thing is, I've never bought/owned/maintained/styled a wig before, so I'm clueless as to where to start.
I've been thinking of buying this wig
, but I'm feeling wary because of my lack of experience on these matters. If I want to style it like John's (click the link in his name above for a picture reference), do I need a longer wig? What sort of wig will I need in order to pull off those spikes?
Also, any tips on how I would style it? I've looked through the Common Questions about Wig Styling thread, but I was just wondering if there was anything I should know in particular for John's hairstyle.
If anyone can help me out, I'd be really grateful!!
