amethyst wig

6

Progress shots of my Amethyst wig I wanted to get off my phone. I carved the cone to build a base out of felt (styrofoam was too heavy IMO) that I lightly stuffed on the inside with a bit of plush fluff to keep it pointy. 10+ hours of hot glue, tacky spray, and hair spray later you get this. Still have some edits I’d like to make before the next con, but was a great learning experience!
I need more patience when it comes to hair cutting, however. That has to be the hardest thing about cosplay.

God Bless the Drag Queens

I’m serious, y'all. SU cosplay is 80% successful drag. These are helpful whatever body situation you’re starting out with for characters as wide ranging as Pearl, Jasper, and even Greg (and his luscious locks!).

CW: Some of these videos feature bodies in various states of undress down to just undies as well as occasional coarse language.

got my amethyst wig so i made her top and did another makeup test (to look a little older but…… 6u6… )haha
i really, REALLY wanted to dye this wig to have a slight purple tint, but it’s already so messed up that i dont think i have to willpower to deal with it being wet and to brush through that haha
im just a little disappointed because i ordered a 150cm wig so itd reach my feet, but they sent me a 120cm one instead, which is still really painful anyway

AY! So my Amethyst wig came in! I REALLY need to style the wig, you probably can’t tell but the wig was a mess on the top. Like the wig cap was showing through and by golly it was not fun. But I need to shorten the front because I am sure as hell not dealing with these long locks in my face. 

Anyway! Enjoy silly pictures of me!

(p.s. I am doing a human Amethyst because this is only my second cosplay, and I would really rather not deal with body paint!)
