How to Make a Pokémon Wig

Adapting Pokémon characters into different styles of costumes is common among cosplayers. You’ll find armored versions of every pocket monster from Pikachu to Charizard at different conventions. But dressier, more elegant Pokémon costumes exist too, and Cowbutt Crunchies Cosplay has figured how a great way to make an Ivysaur wig that reflects the creature and looks stylish. She says:

This wig started out as an Arda Wigs emerald Inigo, with all top pieces constructed from wig fiber over posterboard (I usually use styrofoam but this worked out great for flat shapes!)

Watered down tacky glue is my new best friend and works great for pieces like this because you can bend the fiber around organically, then leave it to dry rock hard after a few hours. They key is mixing your water into it reaches a syrupy consistency – white glue never spread well for me until I figured out this trick.

She has a more detailed walkthrough on Patreon.
