Styled Wig (Posted 24th June 2010)


Wig Arrived~ (Posted 21st June 2010)

I purchased this lovely two-toned red/black wig, it looks kind of more natural at a distance, the fibres blend together to make a dark red colour~ I really like it!

I took some photos in my bathroom to test out how Genin cosplay might look on me~

Red is Back! (Posted 31st December 2008)

After being Eiri Yuki (blonde) for a month, I dyed my hair back red to bring Gaara back!

Cosplay Progress (Posted 9th November 2008)

Uploading this here rather than a cosplay photo because it looks awful. xD I made the cosplay in a few days with no access to anything like a sewing machine, etc.
