Cosplay Q....  
A few months back, someone posted pics of themselves in their Envy cosplay, and they had an amazing wig. I know they explained what they did to achieve the affect but all I remember was that they used some kind of glue! O_o

If you are this cosplayer, or remember what they used and could let me know, I'd love you forever!! I'm going to be cosplaying Envy for some upcoming cons and I'd like to get started on the costume ASAP! ^.^

Thanks guys!

I have the entry in my Random folder, I think. Or, just search the AIM for Avia Purgatorika. :D

There's a hair glue by got2b that's really good. I used it for Ed's antenna.....it's in a yellow tube thing and you can find it at most drug stores/grocery stores.

Hope that helps!

That would be me! ^_^ I had a ton of fun with that wig, both making it and wearing it (and poking random people with it).

I'll try to give you a basic overview on how I did it, though it was mostly trial a error...

I happened upon a black wig with green highlights already in. With it being near Halloween you could probably find one too.

I divided it into roughly even sections holding them together with twist ties (rubber bands tend to rip the hair out).

Just cut each section into a nice, fine point and let the gluing begin! I just used the clear Elmer's school glue. It's really messy, but it holds a lot better then any actual hair product I've ever tried. Just use it like hair gel, starting near the top and working down to the point. It takes a lot!

This is probably the picture that shows the wig best, if that helps any:

Sharpie! It stayed on for nearly a week... ^_^;

Thank you! This costume will make a re-appearence at Katsucon in February- where I will freeze my butt off.
