Helpful Jessie Wig Tutorial

Though I like using my natural hair in costumes as much as possible, sometimes it’s just not realistic. Characters from comics and games can have some wacky ‘dos. Jessie from Pokémon has an intense hairstyle that pretty much requires a wig if the cosplayer wants to match it. DeviantArt user Ryoko-demon made a wig to go with costume and created a step-by-step tutorial to explain the process. I find it really helpful to get a closer look at working with synthetic hair! She started by combining two cherry red wigs:

Two cherry-red wigs (51’’); steel wire (better to use a lighter, for example, aluminum!). It is very important for mannequin head to be a little bit smaller than yours (it was my mistake, mine was 4 cm smaller around, it’s too small, as a result the wig pressed on my head awfully). The skeleton is made of wire and right over one of the wigs and fixed by sewing it to the wig net. It’s necessary to make a strong bearing on the back of the head, on the top and the triangle, covering half of the forehead. Also remember about the ears and temples, you should create the form you need while making the skeleton of wire. The crossing wire can be fixed with the sellotape.
