27th September 2008: Sakura wig progress [27/09/08] Yes I know the progress picture is terrible, I had to use the flash because of the bad lighting in my room - this leads to making the wig look like a horrible party wig D8

But anyway here's what the wig looks like so far. It's a tad shorter than how I would've liked it but I can fix that by adding in wefts. The little antennaes are horrible to work with and won't stay in place!! I keep on forcing them to stay backwards but it keeps on redirecting themselves to the right of the wig, raah! But I'm not too bothered, it's an improvement from my previous wig where the antennae's just flopped down! [Although it's probably due to bad hairspray rather than the actual wig!]
In addition I've made the wig flick out slightly [it's also an attempt to make it look longer than it really is XD] - I wanted to make this wig as accurate as possible! Although if it doesn't look right on my head then I might wash it out - the funny thing is that it's rock solid XDD
The wig is a lighter shade, way more accurate than my previous wig! ^_^

All I have left to do is to trim it, glue/sew in the wefts and continue to flick out the sides and back.

Yes, I think I ended up having several tantrums about those coins!! A freind ended up making about 150 for me out of aluminium sheet metal, they were then spraypainted gold.

Good Luck with the rest of the construction, I can't wait to see this!!

Aww thanks for the comments! =D
@Ichigo: Lol aww thanks! I'm glad the wig looks okay to others at least... I think it looks horrid on me personally xD;; Though it could just be my wig hatred xD [Ironic as I have loads of cosplays planned that involves a wig xD;;]
@Odd One Out: Ah that's no problem! xD You may as well be a tourist attraction with your cosplay! xP
@Freya: Lol and I'm only working quickly because I -REALLY- want to work on Garnet now! Mainly because I want to go back to working on the sewing machine instead of just lying on the sofa/bed/chair/where ever with a thread and needle XD
