If you’re dressing as a character from Borderlands or any other cartoonish setting (like an anime), you might be going for an unnatural sort of look for your hair. Saraphernalia Cosplay has a method that works great for hair that needs to stick straight out or up or look less three dimensional. She had to come up with a wig for her Tiny Tina from Borderlands costume — you can see a side by side comparing her face with the character’s face above — and used craft foam. She said:
I started by creating a pattern of my head by wrapping my head in Saran Wrap, then covering that with masking tape. I took it off and cut it into pieces to make a pattern. I cut those pieces out of craft foam and sewed them together to make a base that perfectly fit my head. From there, I hot glued large chunks of “hair”, then used smaller slivers for details and texture. Last, with the help of my friend @whenwewake , I painted and shaded the whole thing!

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
