"Puns worthy of Rob" for the CSI Minami skit at Minami con 15 , Best Performance at Sunday MCM May expo 2009

31st December 2008: Jessie Wig, take 1 I have decided that jessie's hair is somewhat more like structural enginnering than actual wig styling. Her hair is also Different in every single refrence image......

I decided that I wanted it to curve slightly to one side, the side was chose by seeing which side was more common in my selected reference photos. Slighlty to the left wass the winner.

To begin with i removed all the wefts and scalp from an old wig to obtain the mesh cap underneath.

I am using the same materials that i used as a base for my caterina wig. These include plastic "rigiline" boning and wadding (4oz). They are both lightweight and cheap!

I initally made the bottom section first, by cutting the shape out of wadding and gluing on the boning support. Making sure to use the natural curve of the boning to my advantage (it comes rolled up)

This was then pinned to the base and then additional plastic boned where added to form the top section (mostly by trail and error) The top section was then covered in wadding and the edges sewn and glued together.

The Wadding was then neatly sewn onto the mesh cap.

I have also added 6 hair extension clips (4 at the front, 2 at the bottom) so that the wig can be secured to my head ^_^

Next stage is to build up the top of the wig, to get jessie's widows peak and backcombed look.
