Well, I've heard that Motions Sheen oil spray or whatever it's called works. I've used a silicone lubricant to detangle my Luka wig (there's a thread that's probably in the wigs forum) and it worked fine. When you're just walking around or storing it, you could put it in loose braids so it doesn't go all over the place and get tangled too easily as well.

I've been knitting.
Well, more accurately, I taught myself to knit in the airport in Vegas on the way to my second cousin's wedding, practiced for the plane ride there and back, and I've been knitting ever since.
I've got 4 feet of Eridan scarf so far, and it will be 10 feet when it's done. It looks good so far. I ordered his wigstuffs as well, so that's good, but OH GOD I NEED SO MUCH MORE MONEY AND I HAVE NOWHERE TO GET IT. I need his ear thingies I need his makeup I need materials for Neuro I need wigs for Gumi and Neuro and BLEH.
Gotta bother my parents for in-house jobs and talk to that one guy who wanted vests for Burningman. NEED CASH.

But for now I'll knit and watch Blood-C. Cute uniforms - this show has them.

HI GUYS. It's "pltshp is useless and would appreciate your opinions" time again!

This wig. This character, who's canonical representation is bad for wig references due to his lack of fringe. This is more like it. Y/N?

I am atrocious at wig decisions. Like, the worst person EVER when it comes to this stuff. I was considering FM-Anime (since the high shipping price = $15? That's cheap!) and then read some less-than-favourable reviews and got put off :x

I'm going to DIE of heat on Saturday at Otakon. A pair of tights (that may be my ice skating tights) with fishnets on top, plus thigh high boot covers, a long sleeve shirt, a leotard, vest, and tailcoat. And gloves.

he has more of a Comb-over swoosh bang, rather than no fringe at all. I'd get a wig with longer bangs. As for the first picture, i thought it looked like a really really short straight-across fringe.

... Anyway, DANG I sew fast. I started around 2 and finished at 6:
Meltdown!Miku Dress
if I keep this speed up I'll have my whole cosplay list done by 2012 :O

LOL Went to the mall & Wal-mart today in my Sakura cosplay with my mother-in-law. I was at JoAnn's fabric store & this little boy was yelling "Mommy, mommy come look at the girl with purple hair!" I wish I recorded him. It was so funny. Ether the kid is color blind or dosn't know what pink looks like. The mother told him that he need to keep his mouth shut & she apologized to me. I just laughed it off.

That one does have bangs though? If I get longer ones, chances are I will have to cut them. And last time I had to, that did not go well. I'd rather not risk buggering up another wig when I have so little time to do this cosplay.

I would say go for it. The bangs are long enough they should be easily swept aside, and Cosplay Wig's quality is amazing.


Hat made it here, and now I have to figure out how to remove one of the pins, since it's awkwardly placed, and right where the other pin needs to be. x__o

Aaaand, I mailed FS asking about a wig to match an attachment piece they sell two days ago, and read the reply today. The only wig that matches that has the least amount of styling is shoulder length. So I'm going to have to do some major cutting.
Cutting + Me = Not the best friends ever. I really hope I don't manage to screw it up. ;A;

Ohhhhhh, this cruel world.
I have terrible news.

MY SEWING MACHINE IS BROKEN FOR GOOD.

My beloved 1987 Singer is now irrepairably damaged and I need another machine. T___T Fuck, that machine was what I and my Mom made EVERY costume item with since I was born. And they just don't make machines like that anymore. (My grandma's offered her tank of a 1960 Singer though, so after I see how it runs I may not be shit out of luck.)
