hi there! for your samekichi cosplay what was your method for the head fin? making it/attaching it to your wig if you don't mind me asking, i'm wanting to do a dolphi cosplay and i'm stuck on how to do it....
My method isn’t really the best but it works for me. I try to explain it as well as I can. ´ u `’
I obviously started with sewing two fin-shaped pieces together. I used the fake leather here just like I used with my tail. I also recommend using something harder material to put inside the fin to help it to keep its shape.
When attaching it, I used a piece of iron wire to help it to keep it up and sewed the rest. The shape of the wire you can see from the picture below. With the Dolphi’s fin tho I recommend to bend the wire a little on the end and sew it so it won’t fall out.
Then I put the wire trought the wig and bended it so it wouldn’t stab my head.
This alone doesn’t do the job tho.
As you can see, the fin keeps falling on the sides. It can be easily fixed with a bobby pin tho! Just pin the bended wire under your wig on your head, just like you’d pin your wig. This helps to keep the wire on its place.
And voilà! It’s done.
I hope this helped! And good luck with your cosplay! ´ u `
Oooff 2016 was a dark time my man (not even talking about 2013)
I used the exact same wig (haven’t been styled again since then, just used some bobby pins lmao) and scarf for Russia ; same wig just deshined for Romano ; only same clothes for Nyo!France lmao ; everything new for France
What mostly changed were my makeup and ligHTING YES THIS PLAYS A LOT IN PICS– I like comparing my old and new cosplays whenever I get the chance to tbh so have this I guess C’:
(oh and yea I’m too lazy to crop them properly so eh)
Finally got the wig done. I’m not very good or experienced with wigs so it always takes a long time for me to style one and I end up using insane amounts of hairspray. This is not as bad as I feared, actually I’m quite happy with it in the end. I could always do some more tweaking but I’m afraid I might fuck it up. |’D
No beard or piercings yet and I was too lazy to try out the contact lenses but I did try colouring my eyebrows (I’m not sure if the face paint crayon was the brightest idea though).
Gonna have to play with the makeup a little more, and maybe try this again when I’m not deathly pale. But I told lacee-girl I’d eventually try RWBY Rock Emerald, even if I was too lazy to properly style the wig.
