Just about finished with my new Ivysaur wig! This is the first of a batch of new Pokemon wigs I’m making, and I’m pretty pleased with the foamwork - usually I’m too impatient to use watered down tacky glue, but it always has the cleanest and most stable outcome in my opinion. For the “vines” the key here is to make sure they’re held in place as the glue dries, usually with pins or clips.
It only needs some bang trimming and it’ll be ready to shoot! Expect a walkthrough on Patreon in the next day or two too!
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.
A wighead and stand
A seam-ripper or small pair of scissors
Duckbill or alligator clips
Tacky glue or a needle & thread

OH LORD I MADE IT. All sewn elements are DONE. Finally. Only two things left: stylize wig and attach goggles (finished earlier) to its base. I’m proud and so… so tired. I didn’t have time for this cosplay, that’s why i was fighting with it since august last year!
