A question about stubbing clip-on ponytail.

I have seen stubbing tutorials before, mostly on wigs. But I'm curious if you can stub a clip on ponytail For a Odango (sp?) ball tutorial. And if there is a way, I would love to know what to do.

stubbing refers to the base will gathering of air into a base of a ponytail. For Sailor Moon type hair you attach you ponytail piece to the base of the stub then add the buns on top of that.

I can't say for sure, but I was suspect that stubbing a clip in ponytail wouldn't work. I'm basing this off the clip in ponytails I have seen where the clips are rather large to hold the mass of hair and the hair itself is what is hiding the clip. If you stub the ponytail the clip will show.

^ You can also remove the clip by loosening the elastic and pop the teeth out of mesh.

Thanks for the explanation. It was for this charater here and the reason I wanted to know if it was possible due to the fact that I did'nt want to chop up the wig for the bottom part.

If I was going to make this wig, I'd probably stub the original wig for the top two pieces, add extra fiber at the top, make a foam core piece for the back ponytail, and blend in with the extra fiber you added, but I'm still relatively new at wigcraft so it's just what i have in my arsenal that i could use to make this piece.

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it so much!

I'm a newbie at this (and cosplaying in general) and I had always wonder how to make the two ponytails without destroying the main wig.
