Becoming Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled isn’t easy, because hair. Redditor rayrayraybies recently combined a wig and wefts to make the characters’ flower-filled braids. Though I’m not sure how heavy the finished wig is, it looks a lot like the one in the animated film. She documented the process in an album on Imgur and says she used fishing wire, a needle, and lots of silk flowers with the wig and wefts to make the hair — it’s so big that it’s almost like a prop instead of a wig, actually. Her tip for getting the wefts to stay in place:
Sew with FISHING WIRE and a big fat embroidery needle. Lighter thread won’t hold everything together! Plus you can always cut the wire and brush each weft out individually, once the wig is a well-worn-in mess.
