(MLP) Crystal Empire Rarity wig styling
I'm having trouble figuring out how to style a wig for a Rarity (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) outfit. I want it based on the style her mane takes while she's briefly in the Crystal Empire form but I'm having no luck in my no-idea-what-I'm-doing Googling. It's mostly the tall part I'm having trouble figuring out. Any advice please?

Just having a quick look at this wig, this is what I can suggest.
First of all the head part, for the large bulk at the back, you're either gunna need a LOT of extra wefts to add bulk, or create a base out of either a light weight foam or paper. To make the hair 'lift' you'll want to back comb the hair. I'm not sure how well this will work on synthetic hair, but that's how you'd create it with real hair.
The best product I can recommend is heated rollers, these will help give your wig a more curled shape and will make it easier to style. You can get a variation on size, and this will help with both the wig and the tail part. I've also seen people use water bottles filled with hot water to achieve this effect, but I've not tried that method before, so I can't say much on it.
You're probably going to want hair grips to keep it all in place, and also hair spray it all. I find the best hairspray to be 'got 2b glued' you can find it in most stores that sell hairspray.
Creating bases out of wire and foam/paper is the best thing I can recommend for big shapes, and then gluing the hair to it.
I hope this helps in some way ^^
