Huh, interesting. Pez and I are planning on trying out some dying methods on wigs later on this year--what kind of fibre is the wig made out of, out of curiosity?

Well it's a Punky XL which I think is Kanekalon, used Acrylic ink and surgical spirit (really smells O_o). Zagi was a high temperature synthetic fibre (from EpicCosplay) and that worked the same :D

Ah, cool. Looks like it came out really well!

(I want to try getting Yuri's hair in the right colour at some point, dammit!)

Wig Dying! (Posted 11th February 2011)

First lot of dye was applied to the wig and washed out. I used the Acrylic Ink method for doing this. It's covered the wig really well apart from some of the roots at the back of the wig which are a little paler so these will be re-dyed so they match the rest and don't look wierd when it's all spiked!
