How to take your wig from gross to great!

This isn’t a new method at all, but instead my results using this tutorial.

While the before shot is pretty terrible photo quality to begin with, you can see the wig is basically a ratty, gross-looking mess.

  • Find a tank or bucket and empty a capful of fabric softener into it (more softener if your wig is longer).
  • Add enough water to submerge the wig, and make sure to flip it inside out before you put it in the water. Swish it around to make sure it’s saturated, and then let it soak for a few days. I left mine is for a little over two days, but I would suggest leaving it in closer for the five days the original tutorial suggests.
  • Lay the wig out on a towel to dry. I didn’t wash out the fabric softener, and when it was damp instead of dripping, I put it on a wig stand.
  • After it’s completely dry, brush through it with a wig brush, or at least a brush with wire teeth. Plastic teeth will create static and no one wants that.
  • If you need a wig brush, try checking out beauty stores. Failing that, you can usually find wire brushes at pet stores, and they work as well as any wig brush.
  • Spray lightly with dry shampoo or sprinkle with talcum powder. Brush your wig again after a few minutes to help disperse the powder and keep your wig from looking chalky. You may experience a small amount of shedding during the brushing process, but it shouldn’t be anything too severe.

And there you have it!

This is a great way to deal with a heavily frizzed-out wig! Just bear in mind the process could take upwards of 8 to 10 days for a super-long wig!

Me (as rip van winkle) with Germany at Mechacon after a hetalia panel.

((He was so nice, and his voice was absolutely lovely, and he was just a perfect Germany!!!!))

Ok for any of my followers who are going to Mechacon this is me.

(I don’t wear glasses it’s part of the cosplay)

I will be dressed as Rip Van Winkle from Hellsing (just look for a girl in a suit and tie with this face). So yesh, that’s me…

ATTENTION COSPLAYERS

See this shit?
This shit is about to change your life.

This packet of stuff is called Instamorph Moldable Plastic. You literally buy a packet of this shit, and you can make any-fucking-thing.

You open it up, and you get little plastic pellets that look like this.
image

Doesn’t look like much, right?

WRONG.

When put in hot water (140°F, 60°C.), these pellets melt into a kind of putty-like stuff, that you can mold into whatever shape you want.

They make the coolest cosplay accessories EVER because they’re plastic - they’re moderately lightweight, they’ll survive being dropped and banged around, and they’re waterproof. I made Nepeta horns and Meenah bracelets for my homestuck cosplays, but it can do a ton of other stuff too.

image

Also, the whole project takes maybe a half hour - 10 minutes to boil the water, 2 for the pellets to melt in the bowl (it leaves no residue, so you can use a regular mixing bowl and a spoon to pull it out of the water), a few minutes to sculpt and then a few minutes for it to dry into a completely solid, plastic whatever-you’re-making.

AND THE BEST PART OF THIS IS THAT THIS SHIT IS SO CHEAP

YOU’D EXPECT IT TO BE REALLY EXPENSIVE BUT IT’S NOT

I got a container on Amazon.com for $10, but here’s the actual site so you can check it out some more. http://www.instamorph.com/

SERIOUSLY THOUGH DON’T GO TO ALL THE TROUBLE OF FINDING CREATIVE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MIX MATERIALS, THIS IS REALLY GREAT.

Perfect for Con season.
