Adding wig volume
Hi

A dilemma I have is that a lot of characters I want to cosplay have full thick bouncy hair, which is swept back whilst a wig is usually quite flat on the top.

I've already decided to sew wefts or extension to the wigs of those characters, but I have no idea what extensions or wefts to use, or where to buy them, if that's the right thing to do or how to do it.

I know it needs to be that, as I've been unable to add volume through styling, so does anyone have any pointers?

I have looked at the wig article on here, but I found that I don't really understand it much when they're talking about wefts and extensions.

Something I've done before is to buy two of the same wig and then take one apart (essentially making wefts)
You can then sew the sections you've cut up into the first wig in the corresponding places, this way you shouldn't need to cut them/style too much since you're just combining two of the same wig together... also you wont need to worry about matching up the colour ^^

I'll do that when working with a light wig, but atm it'll be a black wig so I'll get a cheaper wig (I'm not buying another £23 wig to cut up, lol). But thanks! I'll give that a go then!

Hello, I haven't gotten the last part done on this yet (which is just sewing the wefts into the wig) but this might help you out ?
