Finally finished the wig for Megara this week. Just by adding some extra long wefts to the pony tail has really added the length and volume I was after. Just needs some final styling around the fringe, but shes good to go.
Now just need to make sure I really secure this beast to my head.

Manage to transform my orignal Megara wig into a pretty impressive beastfor under £11.00 by sewing in wefts from hair extensions.

The whole remake of my Megara cosplay has come in at a massive £26.39.

Its really amazing how a few alterations can really transform a look of a dress. Looks nothing like the £13 dress I orignally purchase.
I have reused my broaches and belt clasp from my first attempt at this costume that I made a few years ago. The purple belt and dress detail is made from a large scarf I purchased from a charity shop for £2.

The plunge neckline is not quite as disney designed, but I think it suits Megara's personality more.

This week I have been working on Megara's wig. I brought some hair extentions that matched my originals wigs colour and sewned them into the fringe of the wig creating more volume on length. Needs some styling but already a vast improvement on my orignal wig.

As her ponytail is a clip in extention my next job is too add volume and length using the same method.

My inspiration for remaking Megara, was find this dress. I know it's not perfect . It needs the long cascading sleeves removing, the back altering slightly, and the purple details adding. But this dress was a steal at £13, there was no way I could make a dress from scratch for that small amount. Also I found a large dark purple scarf for £2 from a charity shop. Which will do nicely for making the belt and dress details.

So the total spend so far £15. Thats such a bargin.

I love Megara so much I'm redesigning her

Second part of making the staff

Somehow had all the bits and bobs to make the inner staff
