Now that's what I call a poofy ponytail!
I experimented with different fiber and dye colors to achieve a toned-down shade of orange; I was aiming for a mango orange color at first, but I wasn't satisfied with the results. Then I tried something more simple - using bright orange fiber and toning it down with simple red-brown dye - et voilà! It turned out both the cosplayer and I loved the color. It's bright and cheerful!
