cosplaying-on-a-budget:

Most of my wigs require trimming and shaping of some kind. I hang onto the clippings to make curls/ahoge. I don’t like using a lot of product to get the ahoge look and find this method is a good alternative. As you can see in the photos the glue at the base of the curl is never visible. It is also super easy to take out if you need to use your wig for a costume that doesn’t require a curl.
Note: the curl used to make this tutorial is slightly larger then the one used in both the cosplay pictures and the finale picture. This was so it showed up better in the photos.

This is me in my Leopard Nidalee inspired costume. The thing is I made this outfit for a school event, so I was limited a bit, especially when it comes to the time I had to make it.

Let’s now ignore the outfit and take a look at the spear, which is not accurate in any way,…

My friend gifted me a Ryuko Matoi wig for my birthday! I finally got around to doing a makeup test. I hope to start on her shirt tonight.

I’ll be wearing Ryuko to Kumoricon this year!

My friend, Zane, made the skirt for my Ryuko Matoi cosplay. I feel ready to hack up life fibers wearing this pretty skirt.
