Medusa Could Rule the World with Her Hair

medusa

Medusa of the Inhumans is a striking opponent. She made her first appearance in Fantastic Four and has persisted in Marvel comics over the years as a villain and an ally. Besides superhuman strength, agility, and reflexes, she also has long prehensile hair. Cosplayer jj-dreamworldz brought the character to life, and since the hair is Medusa’s most recognizable feature, she took great care to craft a great wig. She states it’s heavy but not too uncomfortable. Here are her FAQs about the faux hair:

Where did you get it/did you make it?
Yes, I did make the wig. I got a 60″ red base wig from eBay and then purchased extensions from I Kick Shins.

How long did it take to make?
Sewing wefts, hand sewing wefts into the wig and styling took about 2 weeks.

How many wigs are there?
1 wig and about 15 thick wefts.

How did you get the volume & height?
The volume of the wig is from the extensions which are slightly crimped which add bulk without the extra weight. As for the top of the wig, there is no foam structure or anything inside the wig, it is all backcombed and hairsprayed underneath. (I watched a bunch of drag queen wig tutorials which used this technique a lot).
