lol, that Rin wig is kind of weird. Black with dark purple bangs.

I ended up going with this wig from FM-Anime, http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?ma...oducts_id=2254 for Amaimon.

All the Amaimon wigs I've seen look more or less the same, but I'd read good reviews about FM-Anime.

I'm thinking I might need to do a bit of trimming on the bangs, since he has the long spike on his nose, then longer in front of the ears, but in between those three longer pieces it seems a bit shorter. Going to wait till I get it and put it on to see what might look most normal though. Kind of scared to trim it, I don't want to screw it up :x

get something like this to use for triming

http://www.amazon.com/Unknown-SE-Thi.../dp/B000V6WDUS

trimming with these makes it less likely to make big mistakes, makes layering easier.I learned this from a wig workshop and dont use it your hair.
I like wigs from that seller.

UPDate on the coat : I washed my coat twice now to remove same stain from the pin and I see the blue dye on the fabric is starting to show, so I am going to soak this in black dye...what a pain.

Thanks for the advice! I think I may ask some friends for some help or at least to borrow some good scissors for the wig, since there are many who are a lot better with wigs than me. Hopefully it'll save me a few bucks rather than buying scissors for just a short trim on one wig. At least it's a pretty minimal amount of trimming, so hopefully I can't mess it up too bad :P

Thank you! Sorry for not seeing the earlier posts. :c

I'm not extremely picky about the color so I would probably get it as is.

Thanks for the advice, guys! Ended up making it as one piece and attaching it with a brooch back like you said.

Now all I have to do is trim the wig that just arrived today and I'll be done with Mephisto! Hahaha, I'm so excited about this cosplay.

Does anyone have a good shot of the school patch? I need to get it ready to embroider, and I just wasn't finding any. If I can't I'll steal that ebay one and make a vector out of it, but I was hoping to get one from the anime/manga. I have the symbol from Ani_BEE earlier, just not the rest of the design

Fantasy sheep has one for 4.79 right now with free shipping on ebay. It is pretty accurate.

I think either ebay or the seller hates Canada because it tells me it's $30 Expedited Int'l Shipping for the patch. >___>


I tried my third bleach on the wig (the pure stuff for whites) I think it did help slightly so there is a tiny bit more of blue. So after it drys again (washed it to get rid off any extra bleach) I'll be taking a straightening iron to it because the top layer are still a bit to poofy from boiling it.

The other bleaches I used was fabric remover from Dylon and Oxygenated bleach for clothes. I didn't us the Ultra Bleach because I didn't have one on hand at the time, I don't have a lot of whites to wash.


I really don't like dyeing wigs.



I'd good to know who the parent seller is for the Amaimon wig Crow711.
It's the one being sold on ebay by one store but the did a bad crop job on the images.

The that they have the set with a goatee for Mephisto.
http://www.fm-anime.com/index.php?ma... ucts_id=2255

The manufacturer also make a a Kirigakure, Izumo and Bon wigs but fm-anime isn't selling it yet.


Also ties are being sold. Might be to short is your tall though.

Good reference for all the buttons and pins.

That Mephisto wig they're selling on fm-anime is the one I got, except I got it from taobao and without the goatee since I'd rather make it myself so it looks more natural. ;P

It's a really nice and soft wig, heat resistant too~ The pink part was a bit too puffy at first, but some ironing did the trick. The ahoge is the only thing I really don't like so I'm making a new one myself, it comes as just thin copper colored wire wrapped around the strand of hair.


And woah, Ani_BEE, that's some crazy shipping for a patch D :

Was thinking of building a clear blade with LED's on the inside, constantly flickering to give it a 'fire' effect, as well as have LED's on a headband for the horns, and more LED's in his tail... not sure if I should have more or not yet.
Lol i imagine you walk into like a rave room and bam, ur cosplay starts glowing like a christmas tree xD

@Shakezula - Do you have an image for the tie emblem? I'm finally going to be able to work on Yukio this weekend since I finished up most of my con stuff. =D
