Information

When I saw the new layout on Macross Frontier fanclub website I was sooooo happy that Sheryl has some new, completely different design. I fell in love with her hair and red, half-transparent kimono~

About her heirdo:
THAT was something new. I'd never worked with wig in this way. To be honest... in ANY way @_@
I decided to make it by myself and I am quite happy with the result ^^
I bought one, long blonde with (from Fantasy Sheep), 5 clips (but I used only 3 :O and I bought it also from Fantasy Sheep in the same blonde shade).

About hair-fans - they're built with the frame and 2 layers of hair.
Firstly I made steel frame (with wire and wire-net) and I wrapped it with hair. I added the second layer.
I was veeery worried about the weight of those fans when I finished them, but I have somehow dealt with it~ I sewed wide rubber into the wig to avoid sliding down.

I added pink shades with special color spray suitable for wigs (bubble-gum smell *o*!)

I also had much work with her shoes, but I somehow met the challenge... I guess XD"

I really don't know what should I write. If you have any questions - feel free to ask.
I also hope to have some photoshoot with this costume, but I think I must wait for the next summer since it's September now :(
