Wig with ears 2 (Posted 14th March 2011)
i stripped the wig to bits and cut the wefts into smaller sections and backcombed them and rolled them into dreads then gave each one a hot water treatment to seal them, then make 2 elastic loops and fed the dreads through the loop to make dread falls and sewed them to the base and covered the edges with the curled sections to hide the joins.
Wig with ears (Posted 14th March 2011)
i had 2 cheep wigs that were white blonde that i had bought ages ago and never used so i decided to use them for this cosplay.
so i used the better one for the base and used the other one for the dreadlock peices along with the green hair wefts i had.
the base wig was very long so i cut and feathered it to a shoulder length at the back with a shorter front with a fringe and sewed the green extentions to the wig on the left hand side and throught the fringe and then started to thin out the entire wig and tapper the ends to make it look natural.
the ears were made from craft foam and sewn into the wig
