Styling wigs can be one of the trickiest parts of cosplay. I’d rather craft armor or paint than wrangle synthetic hair. After you find the right color and something approximating the length you want, some amount of styling has to be done. It’s rare that you can wear a wig right out of the bag. At the very least, it will need brushed and maybe trimmed. And what if you need to curl it? Forget using a curling iron or hot rollers — they’ll melt the hair. Family of 4 Cosplay tried an easy trick for getting great curls: boiling water.
The picture on the lower left is before curling. To get the curls in the image on the right, she put the wig in foam curlers and put the entire wig inside a cheap hair net. Then she poured boiling water on the wig and left it to hang and dry for a few days. After the hair was dry and the rollers were out, the curls just required a little fluffing.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
