Adding Wefts to Lace Front Wigs

For an upcoming cosplay, I need to add wefts to the front of my lace front wig. The problem is , is that I don't know how I should go about adding them. So yeah, how do I add wefts into a lace front wig?

To the very edge of the hairline? You may have to use a ventilating needle and loose wig fiber, rather than sewn wefts. There's a tutorial on deviantArt and more on YouTube.
Although it may be possible to sew the weft along the lacefront(?) In all honesty I don't know. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can suggest a solution.

If you need to alter the actual lace part (i.e. add a different color to the front) then yes you'll have to ventilate it by hand. Trying to sew wefts to wig lace is probably going to rip it and or show up too bulky in comparison.

You you will need Ventilating needles to do this.

It takes time but the results are natural looking.
