Friend has hair down to her knees.

She is thinking of cosplaying, but two issues. Her hair is so long, that it's hard to conceal it under a wig, and the other thing is, she doesn't want to cut it and regret it, because she loves her hair. Is there anyone out there who has or knows someone who has really long hair like this that can get around it and still conceal it well with a wig?

Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Oh, it is certainly possible! Braids or pincurls go a long way -- this tutorial is written by a lady with knee length hair, and her method of fitting super long hair under a wig is very effective. This thread and this journal entry are also well worth a look for other opinions, if your friend is still concerned!

You know, it's funny, she just stumbled across the sarcasmhime page, or she said she had it bookmarked and forgot about it. She said she is going to try that. Thank you! All hints and tips are still read.


Edit: A tip from that journal entry has given her an idea. Thanks again.

Ugh, I had hair that long for a long time when cosplaying. Your best friends will be a buttload of bobbypins and the ability to braid. Separate her hair into about 6 sections and braid them. Then wrap them around her head while pinning them down. After doing that, put the wig cap and wig on~
