Lots of hair in a ponytail..How to? (Kyoko Sakura)

So I want to figure out how the heck to make this much hair in this ponytail....
http://madoka.wikia.com/wiki/Kyoko_Sakura
That's her Wikia page lol

Anyway as you can see, a normal clip in ponytail will not be anywhere near enough hairhair..Any ideas? I was thinking of buying the Jasmine in Maroon from arda as it's already in a ponytail (I would use the Jeanie, but it doesn't come in Maroon..) anyway, I could use the extra amount that already is pulled back, and add the clip in for MORE hair, but I still don't think that's enough..Any thoughts?

Why not use a second wig? Or use the Jeannie from Arda and take the ponytail clip apart, then add a pack of long wefts and remake the ponytail.

Adding 2 clips ontop of each other might work. Like one long one and one short one. (:

Hmm..didn't think of that..I'd use the same length though, but I kinda like that idea..this won't be until august (so Ichigo, you will see this cosplay) so I got a bit of time to get this together

Kukkii-San has a ponytail tutorial with foam core, which gives extra "body" to the ponytail. Might give you ideas, too. Good luck with whichever methods you use.

Oh, I don't know who that is or where..Is that a member here? or More likely DA? If you can, would you be able to link the tutorial? Thanks

I've personally used this technique several times and have loved the results. I pull a longer wig into a ponytail, then use a clip-on ponytail to clip that first ponytail up. The result is very natural looking and has a ton of body.

Are you talking about the method that Ichigo mentioned? If so this seems easier but still promising..

Similar, but I just use one ponytail clip instead of two. I like the effect of one clip more, but it could be personal preference since I use that technique more for lolita/gyaru than cosplay.

Do you have a reference of how it looks when done? I don't own a ponytail wig to clip my lolita clip to so I can't see how it looks in person..Obviously yours won't look exactly like the character I need, but it'll give me a general idea..

PSY, I decided to look up Kukkii-San on google, I know who that is now lol I just didn't know the name..Anyway, I didn't really understand her tutorial. It confused the crap outta me lol and she has a bunch of pics then a bunch inbetween the tutorial so I can't easily just get to the ones I need..But either way, I couldn't follow it for the life of me..

This is how I usually put my wig up. The same principle works for high ponytails.

It'll look even fuller since Kyoko's ponytail is layered. Tease for tons of volume.

Oh I understand what you mean. That was what I first thought to do, I just didn't think it would be enough because one clip only has a tiny bit of volume..

Hey, I have a new question..So I wen't on and bought a wig from a user here, hoewver, I'm thinking that I want to use a wig pulled into a ponytail rather then what I have (A short wig with a clip on..). The ponytail and base are both from epic cosplay and in a dark red color (I bought another dark red wig from there and it seems to match so I'm going with that..

Anyone know any tutorials on putting a wig into a ponytail? A lot of wigs would be too hard because the wefts would show..I don't have that much money to put into this..So I can't buy more wefts on top of buying another wig..Any thoughts?



Also on this topic..Another question..Ok so I mentioned that I HAVE a wig..Well I also wanna think about if I can't happen to make a wig into a ponytail..So Maybe an arda wig that IS in one..The Jeanie comes in Maroon..I don't know how well that matches MY wig..If it looks like it will match then I would like to buy that and use, both, the clip that it comes with, and MY clip to make a thick clip along with having the hair in a nice ponytail.

My wig:

This is actually extremely close to the color if not exact lol

Here is the jeanie in maroon (Oddly enough, used for the same character):

And for another character (same wig and color):
