Putting wig into high pigtails

Okay, so I have since added a vertical part to the wig with loose extensions, smoothed the part to the sides, etc. Now comes the fun part of putting the fiber into high enough pigtails for a Sailor Moon wig...Is there a way to do this with 1 person? I heard I need 2 people for this? Unfortunately, I've got no one else to help me that's 'cosplay-trained.' Can I mount the wig to the side of a door to help? Any help would be great.

You just need a friend. The problem is that you can't hold the pigtail in shape AND wrap it at the same time. Get the pigtail up and at the right tightness, then just have your friend hold it in place. Make sure they don't pull it too tight though.

Okay, thanks! That should be easy enough for them to do. : )

Actually, there's a tutorial in my gallery that explains how to put a wig in a high ponytail (or two, doesn't matter) and you can do it alone. You just need to put up the wig layer by layer, rather than trying to pull up all of the fiber in one step. (I find that this method also yields better results - cleaner-looking, and more stable, because you can seal the ponytail more thoroughly.)

You can also hang the wig head upside down, and gravity will work in your favor

You do realize that you just necro'd a thread that's over a year old, right?

Not even sure how I wound up on this thread, actually. I mean, I read a lot on the wig forum, but I don't remember delving really far into it or anything. *facepalm*
