Yes. . .more is always good. XD
Try hair spray or gelatin. Gel is made to work with natural hair, and assuming you're working with a wig, it won't do what it's supposed to.
Hanging the wig head upside down while it dries to form the spikes also helps.
As for myself...
I find myself wanting a sparkly outfit that a singer (non-Japanese/Korean/anything really "acceptable" at an anime con) once wore, with thousands of stupid little beads and a little cape. I'm wondering where in the world I'd even wear the costume.... (aside from the one event that got me thinking of it in the first place!).
Also wondering if I can afford the time to make it with real beads sewn on, or if I should fake beading with fabric paint (the puffy type) or gluing beads on... wanna make it beaded, but again... time and lack of places to wear it again bother me...
*sigh* And why can't I work on Rith yet?
And why does my dream cos seem to need so many different textures and materials, along with require things to be fitted just right? Gah. But I AM looking forward to shopping for and sewing with silver-grey and light blue-teal suede.
I don't have time for all this...it all takes longer than what I expect!
