Wig Pointers - My first try
Ok inspired by my last wig question - http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/forum?c=showthread&ThreadID=2156, I thought I better try out some of the techniques I am probably going to need to create this wig.

Soo..I look my old Lacus wig and washed it, placed it in a ponytail and cut the fringe. I'm looking for any hints on how I could get it better

From what I can see the tail looks fine. It will alter shape when you put it on your head (I think we spoke about this before) so don't worry if it looks odd when you put it back on the wig head.

Looking at the fringe the main thing is that you seem to have had trouble lining up the cut straight. The best way to do this is to do it tiny sections at a time and always cut lower than what you need so you'll have room to tidy up. It'll take longer doing it twice but you make sure you're able fix any problems you might have had on the first cut.

To keep it as straight as possible I always use either a comb or my fingers to pull the fibres straight then cut the same length as the last bit. If you've ever seen hair cut in a hairdressers you should know what I mean. Doing that in small sections should mean you'll end up with a much straighter cut.

Yeah I wish I had just given myself a little bit longer...though the fringe is just about the right length. I followed this tutorial here > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK9_-sLF5M0. I was trying to make sure that it wasn't completely straight edged bangs, I just hope it isn't wonky >_<
