scontent-b-mia.xx.fbcdn.net/hp… thanks so much for this tutorial . thought I'd show you the results ^-^. lots of compliments from it too . once i find a back picture my friend took, I'll add that to my deviant page, although I'm wondering how you managed to keep the hair from coming undone!! and the foam kept grabbing and frayed my top, the hair covers it up, but I'm unsure how to stop that.. if you have any thoughts
As far as tips for keeping it from fraying, I always bring a can of Got2b Glued Hair Spray and Tacky Spray Glue with me to the convention and before I put the wig on, I give it a quick spray, holding the fibers down with a comb. I also bring with me hair cutting shears to trim away any fibers that just don't want to stay down to help clean it up!
thanks . and I will try that! there's at least 2 more cons on the east coast I plan on showing this off at.. did yours happen to stick to your shirt like mine?(most notably, the foam, cause my speararm I made also did similar) I don't know if it'll ever make the shirt start to tear, but it definitely looks bad if it weren't for the wig covering it up lol
