14th July 2011: Wig I experimented with the look of the curls a bit and decided to trim the wig slightly shorter. I then separated the wig into three sections and made three big rollers from card. I used some double-sided tape to initially secure some of the ends of the hair to them and gradually wrapped the hair around the rollers in layers, using Tresemme freeze hold hairspray to stick all the hair to itself and keep it in place around the roller. I used a hairdryer to speed the drying process along. When complete, I clipped the rollers in place, hairsprayed it again all over and left it to all dry out. I keep the rollers clipped in when storing and transporting the wig.
13th July 2011: Wig After I cut in the fringe and straightened the wig with the hot water method.
13th July 2011: Wig New Look’s Angela wig from CosWorx in colour 12 straight out of the bag.
13th July 2011: Dress in progress You can see here why I went on to line it.
13th July 2011: Mock-up One half of my mock-up, the other half having been dismantled to use as the pattern for the final dress.

OMG, I remember you from Ame04 (I have a photo of you somewhere), I can remember being really impressed by your weapon and talking to you about it. I love the wig, gotta say that I think it is the best Selphie styled wig I've ever seen. The weapon looks as amazing as ever and the dress looks amazing.
