WHY DIDN'T YOU BOTH LISTEN?!

 


Information

Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood is one of my favourite animes! I think it's actually my favourite. I want to cosplay so many characters from it but one I really love both in the anime and manga is Izumi. She's so tough, brave and a bad ass but she also has this vulnerable side she hides. Not to mention her and her husband are just so cute together.

Izumi Wig (Posted 24th January 2016)

I have to give a hug thanks to Nomes cosplay. She helped me source the base dreadlocks wig and provided a handy tutorial on how to make this wig. As you can see the before picture is alot different to the after shot. This is the wig I have styled the most and I found it quite challenging but also quite fun. Here's a breakdown of what I did:

1. First off I had to cut off all the dreadlocks so I was left with a wig cap and a box full of dreadlocks.
2. Because the wig was too small I had to cut the elastic in the wig. Since I didn't have any black elastic lying around I used this tags within the wig (which are used to help make the wig smaller). I sewed these into the wig to make it fit my head.
3. I then changed the hairline of the wig by adding cuts of poly cotton fabric. I made both a widows peak at the front and side burns to help cover my natural hairline. These were sewn in.
4. I then hot glued all the dreadlocks back in. I glued them in the direction I needed them (so slicked back). To give extra strength I glued them through-out the wig cap, not just at the front of the wig. I kept doing this for all around the wig. She has some extra bits will fall forward so glued them the other way.

And taa-daa, the wig is finished! I tried it up with a ribbon on the day as I found bobbles did not fit and would damage the fibers in the dreadlocks. Here's the original tutorial I used: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.396066210464057.92188.39009848...
