The hair - prior to any styling. I need to go back and add some length to the back. All in all - the wig is about 3 pounds. I trimmed the hair to length then started styling it. I back combed and sprayed the hair to get it lay the way I wanted it too. I couldn't quite defy gravity on the sides.
Kukkii-san Thank you for sharing this! Creating a wonderflex/foam helmet to base the 'wig' off of is a pretty brilliant idea, I love the volume and the color variations! :-)
char99char Thanks ! I got the idea from an episode of Mad Fashion. The helmet gives it a solid support. I was able to take it of periodically at the convention and hold it which was a bonus. It slides backwards a little but I should be able to correct for that.
