Combining clip ons..?

Hello!

I am a huge noob when it comes to wigs, so some help would be appreciated here ._. If I need to make a really thick ponytail, let's say for this character, is it possible to buy a double ponytail wig and somehow make one huge ponytail out of them?


Thank you very much~

Totally! All clip on ponytail are made the same way with the comb only fitted through the netting and the elastic that keeps the ponytail on tie once pulled our you have just the wefts sew to the netting.

You might even want to sew both ponytails to some padding to make it extra fluffy looking at the base. Kukkii-san has a tutorial on padding.

For the size of her ponytail, I definitely think a solid foam base is ideal.

Did a similar tutorial as well. I used a whole separate wig for the ponytail and used a light foam base, as some other people have mentioned.
