The progress is looking great so far! If you plan on an updo though, you may find one wig doesn't contain enough fibres. I came across this Renji wig once in my internet trawls and thought it might be of use to you as a reference. http://red-cluster.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3ahb8a

you know, your probobly the first Renji with the only wig that looks better than any other Renji wig lol,you do need to tattoo your head to make the costume more dedicated but I guess using paint would be the first option you would go for lolilol

Yay Main body of costume arrived today :D yey (Posted 9th May 2011)

Hi all
I'm happy to say I have the begginings of a costume, Had to stitch up the hakama slightly so it stays a good shape, otherwise the creases wont stay in place. I am awaiting the official sword to start work on and have just ordered a wig which I will be sculpting. Lets hope it all gets here in time. I can't wait to get those creative hands dirty :D he he.
