Wigs! Where to buy and how to style ♪(´ε` )

Hello readers!

First I have to say,
THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your positive feedback and WELCOME new followers! I'm very happy.

Yay, I finished all my exams at university for this term and now I have holidays *dances*
Today was my hardest exam. The japanese language exam.
I attended a 1,0 but I then found out that I made some mistakes... I still hope to get a 1,3 at least >__<
(1 is the best grade in my country btw)

Aaaanyway

After my last post I got a lot of messages from people, asking me where I buy my wigs.
Well, this is not really a secret.

I buy them from different cosplay wig stores on ebay. They are not really expensive, somewhere inbetween 20 and 30$ (30$ really is the highest amount I would spend on a wig and then it has to be reeeaally awesome)

However, there are two important things I look at when buying.

1) Seriousness of the shop.
There are some shops that look suspicious, because they have really maaany many different stuff at very low prices. So I look that I buy at a shop which specializes only in wigs or maybe in cosplay wigs and cosplay items. Check the rating of the shops and maybe some comments of previous buyers.

2) Fiber
I always buy heat resistant fiber, because it looks more realistic and you can style it with the hair straightener or the curler.

I never buy at a special shop, but if you message me, I can give you some links of shops where I've already bought my wigs

Soooo what is even more important than the quality is the styling and treatment!
I never wear my wigs without editing them. It always hurts my heart when I see people running around with their wigs without editing them.

1) Cut
I always cut my wigs. I make either layers or I just thin out the bangs our the tips, because without them they look so... well wiggy XD

2) Powder
I use hair dust oder volume powder to make the wig look less shiny and therefore less... like plastic. I apply it on the whole wig and brush the wig afterwards. You can also use dry shampoo or baby powder. This works as well.

3) Coloring roots
Sometimes I dye the roots in a darker color (use make-up or markers). This is really pain in the ass because it takes sooo much time. But it's worth it.

4) Styling
I style the wigs just like I would style my real hair. Teasing, flattening, curling, ect. I use hair wax and tons and tons of hairspray!

Well... that's it basically :D

I still have some wigs that are unedited, so maybe I will record video the next time I style one of them ;D


Sooo that's it for today~

Here's just one pic with my real haircolor



Thank you for reading~

Keep smiling  (ノ◉ω◉)ノ♥
