Lila Rossi (Volpina) - Miraculous ladybug

In Progress

Hibanacon 2019


Just an idea on the table for now.

I overestimated the amount of fabric I needed for Dagger and I love foxes. My fiance and I wanted to do some villains together at some point. It was a tie between Volpina and Princess Fragrance for a while but this one seems far more cost effective.

I THINK I have most of what I need, mostly the white spandex, boots, necklace and the wig/dyes/sharpies/whatever I need to get.

Dyes, dyes and dyes!!!

Since my last entry the tail, sash and mask are almost done. I am about half way into the wig colouring progress. Most Volpina wigs in existence seem to be brown by default and have additional wefts attached and some even painted on at the ends. I decided that maybe gradient dying might be my most favorable method. I have never done any wig dying before, let alone creating ombre effects, and decided to challenge myself. The thing is Volpina's hair colours seems to change based on reference pics. Some pics her hair has orange and sometimes red. My gut instinct suggested that the best way around this is to have fun with it and mix the colours together as I am a sucker for wigs with many shades and highlights. I spent ages reading and watching videos about wig dying and made a start by buying a Alex wig from Coscraft in White and using Rit Dyemore in Racing Red to create a base for the rest of the colours to work on. I had a bit of a scare as I thought the wig was gonna be a irreparable mess due to the tangles but thankfully with the combination of a soak in fabric softener, a comb and a hairdryer it was saved. From there all of my dyes have been, and will be created by myself using the sharpie method that involves using sharpie cores and rubbing alcohol (there are many tutorials and are easy to make!). Currently the wig has orange and black and right now I have brown dyes and more black dye soaking in my studio right now. The wig itself is sectioned ready as I plan to 'paint' the rest rather than spray.
