Wig-Styling Paralysis

 About a week and a half ago, I took out my wig that will eventually be Fang’s, put it on my head, stared at it, and put it away again. For some reason, of all the styles I’ve done before, Fang’s I-don’t-believe-in-hairbrushes-ever style is the one that scares the heck out of me.

I ordered this one in Espresso, and I have some loose dark brown wefts at home.  http://www.cosworx.com/product.php?productid=16486&cat=2448&page=1

I feel like with Fang’s wig, the most important thing to do is to get started, but I can’t even do that.  I don’t get it. But it left me with a thought: what is styling a wig versus messing it up? It depends on if you’re doing it on purpose or not!

Much love,



About greyrondo

My name is greyrondo. I've been a cosplayer since Fall 2006, and I've noticed that the best conversations I have with cosplayers usually involve the question, 'so how DID you do that?' So after studying costuming and making a closet's worth of costumes, that's what I'd like to help answer. Drop in and stay awhile whether you're a cosplayer or just a curious spectator; one of my musings is bound to be what you're looking for. If you have a question or something to say, leave a comment or contact me! I don't bite, I promise. View all posts by greyrondo
