Sindi wig in Afterglow #24b and extensions for Live action Sailor Moon! - II
"Recently, I attempted my first cosplay as the PGSM (Live Action) version of Sailor Moon. The wig was an extremely difficult part to complete, as I was trying to match one used in a tv show and style it. I ordered the Sindi Wig in Afterglow and loved the colour of it. ... Several long nights were spent adding wefts to the back of the wig in order to make it part into the pigtails easily. Then came the next big problem, creating the odangos. I didn't want to use the popular method of 'stubbing' the wig and then wrapping styrofoam balls with the extra cut of strands. Instead, I left the wig intact in the pigtails, added on the long extensions, and then wrapped the wig hair from the pigtails around the top of the attached extensions and ponytail holders. We glued the odango buns in place using a special goo hair glue and hair spray combination.
I'm extremely pleased with the results! It was my first attempt with a wig, and I was expecting to have to remake it again due to several mistakes. However, upon wearing the wig to my first convention, almost everyone commented on how wonderful the wig was. I even had random people running up to me and feeling the back of my head while they tried to decide if the wig was my real hair or not! The wig is constantly getting people's attention and I'm still asked constantly if it's my real hair. "
