“Are you sure you don’t mind?” Saitama asked at the entrance of Bang’s dojo. “I mean, he’s not a normal kid, you know.”
Blue walked over next to Bang and put his hands behind his back the way that the old teacher did.
“Not a problem,” Bang said. “I’m honored that you would allow me the chance to teach him.”
“Well, he insisted.”
Bang watched as Blue went into a nearly flawless Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist back stance.
“Yeah, he watches your videos all the time.”
Blue walked over to the training floor, and as Bang started going into an explanation of the tenants of his martial art, Saitama could see Bang’s student – Pichanko? Chekobi? He forgot – talking to him, his face sneering. Blue silently watched the other student, and then bent his waist in a little bow. Chikowski turned away, but then flipped back and threw a punch at Blue while he still faced the ground.
Blue bowed again over the other student’s body, after his perfectly executed sidestep sweep.
“I guess that’s that,” Saitama said, shaking Bang’s hand and leaving quickly before the old master could change his mind.
Once Dude had figured out that he couldn’t follow Saitama around everywhere he went, he turned his attentions elsewhere in his “off” hours.
“Sensei,” Genos said one evening while the boys were doing the dishes. “There is something serious we must discuss. About Dude.”
“What is it?” Saitama put down his manga and sat up, paying close attention. If Genos had said there was a monster that needed fighting, he wouldn’t have taken it nearly as seriously as he did when it was something about the kids.
“I am afraid there is…something wrong with him.”
“No way. He’s been great. He helps out, he cleans up, he’s perfect. What’s wrong?”
Genos glanced behind his shoulder towards the kitchen, as if to make sure there were no eavesdroppers. He pulled out a stack of pages – magazine clippings, newspaper pieces, postcards and promotional material – and passed them to Saitama. They were all of Tatsumaki. There were also copies of several letters in very computerized font that spoke of ‘eternal love’ and ‘life-giving passion’ for the ‘terrifying and beautiful Tatsumaki.’
“Our son has a crush.”
If it hadn’t been for the news report from City Q, Saitama and Genos never would have known what Danger was doing when not protecting the apartment.
“This piece of amateur video appears to show someone fighting alongside Watchdog Man. If we slow the footage, you can see what appears to be a small figure using some sort of body armor.”
There was another, blurry photo, which showed the figure riding on the hero’s back as they leapt from building to building.
“We reached out to the Hero Association for comment, but they did not return our calls. When we attempted to contact Watchdog Man himself, we only received the following message.”
The screen changed to one of the popular images of the celebrity hero, his expression placid, scratching his ear with a paw. A rolling text read while audio played.
“I will neither confirm nor deny the existence of Tiny Dancer. However, any person who shares my passion for protecting the people of City Q are welcome in my pack.”
Saitama shook his head, turning off the television. “Sensei, aren’t you proud?” Genos asked, slightly worried at the response.
“Of course I’m proud!” Saitama practically yelled. “But why does he have to go all the way to City Q for this?!”
When I decided to embark on making the new Suicide Squad Movie’s version of Harley Quinn, I quickly ran into a problem. All the pigtail wigs I could find (such as Arda’s Chibi) had bangs. And SS’ Harley? Completely bang free.
So I decided to create my own pig tail wig, with a mock skin part.
To make your own you’ll need:
2 wigs in your desired color
A wig head
Fabric that matches your skin tone
Glue, I used e6000
Clips, bobby pins, hair ties ect
A curling iron
First things first is your going to start removing wefts from where you want your hair part to be, my wig had a small skin top so I decided to continue my part down from there. I pinned my wig to my wig head (you’ll want to pin it stretched out a bit since it will loose elasticity) and removed each row of wefts in 3" widths
Now your going to have a big ol’ bald spot. Right down the center of your bald spot your going to glue down a 2" wide strip of fabric the length of your desired part
Now starting in the center, your going to glue down three or four rows of wefts, going VERTICALLY down the skin tone fabric. You are going to glue the wefts down so that the hair is laying in the opposite direction that you want it to go. Because, like in the second picture above, you’re going to fold the wefts over
So, once your rows of wefts have been glued down, and you have waited a few hours to ensure they’re dry, you’re going to fold the wefts over one row at a time, and use a curling iron to press the part down flat and in place. Then repeat the whole process of laying down wefts and folding over on the other half of your wig.
One half done
Both halves done.
Now once you have your center part created, you’ll want to glue some wefts on the underside of your wig to fold over the edges. This stops the ugly flesh tone band of the wig from showing and ruining the look.
Once that’s all done its onto the fun of styling some bouncy pig tails! If you use this tutorial for any of your cosplays, please tag me in photos! I’d love to see!
Here’s a few pics of my pigtail wig a la Harley Quinn:
