3rd April 2012: Wig Hairline And here's the beginnings of the new hairline I'm working on. I'm using some more of the wefts from the old wig to make it so it all matches.
I'm following this awesome tutorial I found on dA: http://malindachan.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/&offset=24#/d3kq67t
It's been super helpful, I couldn't have gotten this far without it.
Only problem is that its very time consuming and my patience for it is almost gone and I'm only halfway through! XD
I wanted to get it finished for the weekend just gone to go to the Birmingham MCM Expo in it but I just couldn't get it done in time. Nah well, I'll be wearing it on the Friday and Sunday night of Kitacon.

30th March 2012: New wig washed Here's a picture of the wig newly washed. see how far back the hairline goes, I hated how it did that in the previous wig as my hair underneath would always show and Axel has such a distinctive hairline I always wanted to fix it but never got round to it...
I also cannibalized the old wig into this one. I took it apart and sewed all the old wefts into this one to give the spikes a load more volume in the back as they were always so thin and flimsy.

teehee, thanks to my parents buying a new bed I was supplied with a huge amount of new cardboard. Best way to keep a cosplayer happy, give them more cardboard XD
