Flemeth is a shapeshifter from Dragon Age, but cosplayer Karen didn’t have to change the structure of her DNA to become the character. Flemeth’s wardrobe is striking to say the least, and Karen built the entire thing. She looks wicked. It was important to get the character’s distinctive hairstyle right, so Karen completely styled a wig for the first time:
First I made a wire structure sewn into the base wig cap, filled it with paper and covered with tape. After that, I made 3 layers of napkins and glue and covered all the horns with paper clay to finalize. When it was dry I began to glue the wefts with a mix of glue, gelatin and water. It wasn’t fun. I dropped the paper cup THREE TIMES on the floor full of this thing, it took me forever to clean it all. I know… I’m messy.
And then it was just repeated work, glueing forever and ever all the wefts and finalizing the borders with more wefts.
This wig weights about 4 pounds, I had to sew 4 clips inside the cap to don’t let it fall from my head, it was like a helmet.
