Okay. So. I'm having trouble styling the pieces of hair that frame her face. As you can see from the reference pics below, they stay separated from the rest of her hair. I have them pulled away and cut, but when I try to style them to make them stay put, they kinda separate into multiple pieces while (mostly) staying in the bunch...Anyone know how to style the pieces to make them look like the real deal and actually stay properly?

You're talking about the long bangs on either side of her face right? Part of the trick there is those bangs are falling in front because of her ears. Since getting surgery to make your ears to stick out wouldn't be an option (I think...) I'd probably consider a shim approach: Take some sort of object, paint it as dark as possible (matching the hair color would be ideal) and then wedge it into place in the wig cap just ahead of your ear. I'd probably use a chunk of EVA foam, since I've got tons of scraps of it lying around. I'd also bevel it into a triangle shape, and probably use a couple of layers glued together in a "bolt and nut" approach: the top would be larger to sit out a touch and push the bang forward, then a narrower piece to get between the wig cap, and a larger piece to secure it in while not hurting your head more than usual.

The rest of it (I think) would be to make sure to put a heavy coating of mousse/wax to let it keep its shape. I did some light styling on my wig for this year, but I didn't do much more than just spray it with high duration spray prior to my leaving for the con.

...I don't understand what you're talking about with the foam ^^;

I think a simpler approach would be to slick down the ends of the forelocks with tacky glue so they retain that point and keep separated from the rest of the hair.
