Sometimes you end up cosplaying a character with a really crazy hairline, and you think “How am I going to make THAT?”
Maybe you’ve already learned about lace-front wigs and how they appear more natural-looking. Maybe you’ve even heard of wig ventilation, which is the method for individually adding hairs into the lace of a lace-front wig. If you’ve gotten that far, you’ve probably noticed you need special tools, called ventilating hooks/needles, and they can be costly and hard to acquire. Fear not! I am here to show you a few methods to ventilate hair with just normal supplies you can find at your craft and sewing store!
That’s right, you can ventilate hair with just a normal sewing needle!!!
My base wig came in!!
In fact, TWO of my base wig came in!! Unfortunately, eBay fucked up and instead of getting one of the clip-ons and one wig, it gave me two wigs and no clip-on. Totally not cool, I need that super sweet clip-on to complete this baby.
In the mean time though, I’m totally in love with this wig. The kanelon feels and looks great! I think its a little loosely assembled, I lightly pulled my wig brush through it and a teensy chunk of hair came out. @_@ I’ll be gentle though. I’m thinking I need to run by the dollar store to get my bobby pins for styling. What I’m going to do is pin most of the hair back like the way I’m holding it in the bottom picture, and then I’ll clip the ponytail onto that, so it gives the appearance of longer hair but pulled back. And then of course leave some wisps down in the front. I’ll probably curl them a bit more, though I think its really adorable that they’ve already got their own little bounce going on. c:
Ive got two questions in my inbox right now that need one and i’m running out of luck.
I don’t know anything about Homestuck, but would this tutorial be anything like what you’re looking for? It’s for putting two wigs together for Nia’s two-toned hair in Gurren Lagann.
