8th October 2017: 2 More wig work! I lost 3 days to a migraine so I'm a bit behind where I wanted to be, but progress is progress.

I finished off the existing additional wefts I had in the fringe, 2 layers of each, and then ordered more, along with some new clips for in the back as one broke.
Time to do some actual cutting, as I'd ran out of things to do. I cut the long wefts down to a more manageable length, checked where they more or less needed to fall on my head, and went to town on it. It didn't turn out too terrible, considering!
It probably could do with a little more evening out, and checking how the curl looks - but this is how it is right now. Not a total disaster, which means I can get adding the new wefts into the back where I had ran out and then start styling that soon.

1st October 2017: 1 Sometimes I forget why I haven't finished a costume for myself in an eternity, and then I get out a wig and I remember. If I was more sensible I would probably get someone else to deal with wigs and hair for me.
This is starting from my original Tomoyo wig, bought several years ago from Cosplaywig on ebay. The curls have mostly dropped out of it and it was starting to get matted up, so it needed a spa before anything could be done with it regardless.
I started off by wetting it liberally with detangling spray, then brushing it through to remove knots. Then it got a good going over with straighteners on a very low heat. I was pretty happy with the result, so on with the actual work.
The base wig is plain black - Tomoyo's hair changes colour from black, to dark grey, to various shades of purple - so to satisfy my wish for a blended colour along with a thicker wig I decided to add in additional wefts in Darkest Purple and Natural Black from my existing hoard. The colours mix together nicely in test twists, so hopefully they will in the final wig.
