DarkElf - Benten / Merill Yanagawa - 3rd December 2014

Wig construction

Wanted to post a bit about the wig.

Other than dreadlocking for my Lenore wig, and some cutting on my Katherine wig, this is the most adventurous I've got wig with construction and I think it came out really well.

How to do Benten's epic hair was always going to be the biggest part of this costume. So I decided the best approach was to get a short spikey wig and sew in really long straight wefts, to acheive that beautiful bulging mullet.

Bit of final cutting and styling and I'm very pleased with the result.

Sewing in wefts takes so much longer than you think it will...
