Wig Help!

Post by sunflower_king » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:17 pm

I am going to be cosplaying Present Mic next year for AB and I'm a bit stuck at the wig. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to do his hair? I've looked at tutorials, but I'm still unsure for how to go about it.

I can see what you're trying to accomplish. Whenever I've worked on a character with extremely spiked/crazy hair, I wound up using a foam cone base so it was light weight but sturdy if sewn to a headband, hidden under the wig. I wound up the gluing/styling the hair in such a fashion to hide the foam base. It worked fairly well for 2 wigs I had to work on for a theater production, but I don't know 100% if it would work for what you're looking to do. Just a suggestion! Hope I helped even if a little. ^_^
