Wig Tutorial: Creating a Double-Thick Wig

Wefting and De-wefting Techniques

Double-thick wigs are useful for all sorts of situations - they’re especially great for spiking because extra fiber creates an extra-thick spike, but they are also useful for characters who simply have a ton of wild hair, such as Jasper or Jiraiya. Even wig brands renown for their thick hair can’t hold a candle to a double-thick wig, especially when you double up on a wig style that was thick to start with.

Supply List

  • Two wigs
  • A wighead and stand
  • Pins
  • A seam-ripper or small pair of scissors
  • Duckbill or alligator clips
  • Tacky glue or a needle & thread

Wig Hacks Wednesday #1 !
Need to quickly add length to your base wig without spending time sewing rolls and rolls of wefts? Want to use the same wig for that certain character who grew out their hair after timeskip arc? (I’m looking at you, Shonen Jump characters)
Here’s a quick way to add some sturdy length to your base wig, but still easy to remove if needed, using the ponytail wrap from Arda Wigs (Base wig in pic is a Jareth in Baby Pink)

- Using the duckbill clips, section off the hair where you want to add length. Unwrap the ponytail wrap’s velcro top. (You can see many rows of wefts on it which makes it volumous)
- Pull the small tail side through the spaces between the elastic band on the wig
- Fold in the ponytail wrap’s main side and use the little comb to secure it to the base wig
- Bring the small tail side over the main side of the ponytail wrap and press down the velcro parts to secure them to one another
- Comb and straighten the wig hair as needed to blend the textures
- She’s ready to rock hair-over-shoulder looks!

I hope this was useful for you guys. Every Wednesday, I will be sharing wig hacks for styling, tools, products, and just whatever I find interesting to add to your wig work experience!

Baby Duckbill Platypus. 

I’ve died of cute. 

anonymous asked:

YAS New MM blog *~* Could you do scenerio where boys s/o really wants attention and cuddles? For Seven,Jumin, Saeran and Yoosung? :3

Hello, anon! I was a lil unsure whether you meant the boys would want attention from their s/o or their s/o would want attention from the boys, so if I apologize if I didn’t fit the request you were asking for ; ; Nevertheless, I love writing warm cutesy stuff! I FELT ALL WARM AND FUZZY WHILE WRITING THIS!! aha :> This kinda got long so most are under the cut! (god bless you if you manage to read them all) ALSO: SPOILERS IN SAERAN’S SCENARIO. u have been warned


Yoosung:
  Yoosung had literally spent the past four hours doing nothing but twiddling on LOLOL, you could occasionally hear him raging on the team speak with his fellow guild members. You knew this was going to happen though, he had told you about this new seasonal event going on ingame and how there was new items that could be farmed from bosses. You loved your boyfriend and respected his hobbies so you didn’t intrude, but four hours? This was a bit ridiculous.
  You walked into the computer room, and god, was it a mess. There were empty soda cans on the floor and bags of Honey Buddha Chips that Seven provided him with were sprawled everywhere. You saw your dorky, little boyfriend scrunched in the black desk chair, clicking away at his mouse and keyboard. He didn’t even notice you entered the room which only made you more eager to get his attention.  
  “Honey~!” you chirped happily, wrapping your arms around your sleep deprived boyfriend. He jumped a little, all that screen time was making him wired. He looked up at you and at your sweet, sweet smile that he loved so much. You pecked at his lips, which tasted indistinguishably like Honey Buddha Chips. It must have been ages since he had a proper meal.
  “Give me a minute guys, my sweetheart just came in the room,” Yoosung said into the microphone. He pulled up the options of the LOLOL client and saved his game then exited quickly. “Do you need something, sweetie?”
  “I’m lonely~ I want my adorable, loving boyfriend to hold me tight and give me attention!” you pouted, sitting yourself on Yoosung’s lap. He grabbed the collar of your shirt and pulled you onto his mouth. His lips pressed against yours and you wrapped your hands around his hair, making it disheveled and messy. “More! I want more attention…” you whimpered as Yoosung’s lips parted from yours, “cuddle with me please?”
  “…Well, I can always farm for that LOLOL item later right?” Yoosung smiled widely as you shoved your face into his neck, kissing the soft, tender skin. “Besides, that item will never be as special as you! You’re my most prized possession.” He pushed your hair behind your ear and pulled you close under the crook of his neck.
  “I love you!”
  “MC, I love you even more!

Today’s Doodle: Dinosaur gestures (compilation)

My favorite kind of art to do is “gesture drawing”. These are quick drawings, taking anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, trying to capture the essence of  a pose. These drawings tend to be simple but full of energy and life. I do it every day to warm up, and try to carry some of that same energy into my finished drawings. Usually gesture drawing is done with the human figure, but I find that paired with “book” study of any form, human or animal, doing lots of gestures is a great way to get an intuitive sense of their anatomy.

$10,000 Reward offered
So it’s been about a week now since I reported my 1972 Datsun 240Z as being stolen. It was stolen from North Pickering, Ontario, Canada sometime in the last two months or so. It is unique so if it shows in public it will be easily recognizable. Beautiful blue with licence Z240 (that won’t be there) and period Konig wheels. Many of the pictures I posted do not show the duckbill spoiler. It was added later and painted to match the car. Under the hood is awesome: triple sidedraft Weber DCOE 45s with custom intake and headers. The original 240 engine was replaced with a 280 with serial number L28 317613. The VIN seen through the driver-side windshield is HLS30-88798. In addition to the 280 engine there is a new aluminum radiator with electric fan. There is an MSD electronic ignition. Custom 2.25 inch single exhaust routes the sound to the rear. There are new stainless steel bumpers front and rear without the overriders. The interior re-done in original white and the steering wheel is original. The original gearshift knob remains, but the original transmission was replaced with a rebuilt 5-speed and mated to a 4.11 R200 differential.
This has been my car for more than 40 years. If you should ever spot it, please report it to the police or contact me through Facebook or email Bluebird@sadavidson.com . I am offering $10,000 in reward money for information that results in the recovery of the vehicle as long as it is still in the perfect or near to perfect condition as when it was stolen. All I want is the car returned. The thief or thieves are not my concern.

[#Kanji of the Day] Friday April 28, 2017 (Heisei 29):鴨嘴

Japanese Romaji: kamonohashi
Japanese Meaning: platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) / a duckbill (platypus) / duck-billed platypus / duckmole

Japanese to Chinese Translation: 鴨嘴獸 (yāzuǐshòu)

Parts:
kamo(gamo) - wild duck / easy mark / a sucker / easy target / sitting duck

hashi(kuchibashi, shi) - the bill or beak (of a bird)

*Note 1: in Japanese, this is more commonly written as カモノハシ and alternatively as 鴨の嘴. It literally means “bill of a duck”.

*Note 2: this word has an example of a contraction. The “no” is actually the particle の, but it has been omitted.

*Note 3: in Japanese, 家鴨 (domestic duck) has a special reading of “ahiru”

*Note 4: the Japanese expression 鴨葱 (kamonegi) is an abbreviation of 鴨が葱を背負って来る (kamo ga negi o shotte kuru). It literally means “a duck comes carrying a green onion”. It can refer to 1) something surprisingly convenient (serendipitous, like finding the ingredients for a good duck stew) or 2) a gullible person (along comes a sucker just begging to be parted from his money).
