First time legitimately styling a wig (as wigs I’ve styled before were just combing the fibers into the appropriate place, though I did trim my pirate!Spain wig a bit here and there, and am kinda inspired to go at it again, now that my gf taught me a nice cutting trick). This is for Fang, for Acen. Used to be your typical dark long wig, with spiral(?) curls and the length came to a pointed end. Brushed out the curls, cut several inches off the bottom (and made it even across, instead of to a point), trimmed all around to add layers, Forced the front wefts, which faced forward (as is typical of wigs), to be brushed back, made a side part, added the side braid (shame you can’t see the three corn-row-esque braids that braid into the visible single braid), then made a hairline. Phew.
Also, I’m going to be one of few Fang cosplayers, I feel, who actually has long hair. Most people cut it to shoulder-length, and I’m like “why you do this.” At best I cut a couple shorter pieces to drape over my shoulders, cause it better frames my face. But the over-all length is appropriately long :)
