13th September 2015: Costest So the weft arrived and the wig is now done! Full costest with top, coat, trousers and boots but no make up done. Pretty happy with how its looking. Just a couple of details to add.
31st August 2015: Wig progress Working on my wig for Jolyne. This wig has been an absolute nightmare. Started with a base wig in dark blue from coscraft and a matching weft. Glued the weft around plastic cups to make her buns and glued a green wig to the front. The bit that is driving me mad is the braid she has, so I've ordered a green weft to try and do that with.
Also added the patterns to top and pants and pattern on the back of the coat.
16th August 2015: Boots Grabbed these cheap on ebay. They're a good colour match with rest of the outfit. Will probably remove the tassels.
16th August 2015: Base wig Chose the prince in dark blue from coscraft plus a matching weft to do her buns with. Ordered another green wig from this listing: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271911055320?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=570746432512&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT to make the front part and the braids. This wig is going to be work! Fortunately found a suitable tutorial to follow.
16th August 2015: Top and trousers To be modified. Going to add the spiderweb patterns with silver fabric paint.

This is looking pretty epic so far. A+ wig game, I can only imagine how much work that took!
