ZOMG this is so awesome! I don't think I'll ever cosplay Cloud, but I have quite a few spiky-haired cosplays and I had no clue how to go about it OTL.

Thank yous!!! :dummy:

D:! Good luck!

Acctually since this tutorial I've... planned a cosplay using my own hair! DX Cosplaying Fang from 13, because her braids are almost impossible to reproduce in wig form!! lol Enjoy! I hope my techniques helped though.

Whoaaaa! Crazy!! I cannot do that, I have the most 'asian like' hair that a very very white person can have because of so many dyes and other horrible things I've done to it... but I cannot spike it very much...

I would show you it, but alas it is only in the planning stage... I have to wait two con years to do it, since I'm waiting for my friend-of-questionable-relationship to cosplay Vanille with me for it... I figure, people always mistake us for a couple... people always mistake them for a couple (although, I havnt finished the game so they might turn out to be). But either way we'll make a good match. ^_^

Oh, I went though a stage (That I wuold admittedly still be in if I could) where I was bleaching my hair a new colour every week! So pink, blue, white... It was not so good... And I used to have real long hair too so...

Well, we dont really discourage peoples theory anyway... XD in fact we've been known to lend proof in opportune moments... to screw with peopls heads. But yeah, this year I'm cosplaying Lightning though... which will be interesting, I'm all about the 13 ATM!

Which cons do you go to!?

Hey, just a quick question:
Did you get the 613 Golden Yellow Blond wig or the 613A Platinum Blond Wig?

Also, thanks so much for the super great tutorial, it was just what I needed!

613 Golden Yello Blonde, which isnt golden yellow like it claims, its a really nice natural looking blonde.

I'm glad you liked it ^_^

Quick question. Thinking about doing the version from the Wall Market. Miss Cloud, y'know?
Any way to add the braided pig tails easily?
Reply
:icongambit13:
Gambit13 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009
its pretty easy, instead of cuttin gthe back, or spiking it up, just leave it down and braid it. If you alredy have the wig and want to add to it, then thats a little harder, you need to weft pre-made peices into the wig... but its not going to look all that great. =/

Of course, I don't have the money for a wig, so I'm going to attempt to use my little sister's crappy Hannah-Montana wig.

...This should be interesting. xD

well I've started on the wig, and it looks nowhere near as pro as yours does XD

the spikes in the back of the head are somewhat split, even with using the fine toothed comb, and water spritzer it takes a lot longer than I thought.

Its a very... patient thing isnt it? XD I destroyed my first Axel wig, trying to spike it quickly.

well i finished my wig yesterday. the sides dont look as good as i would have liked, and i dont have that perfect "cone-like" shape that cloud has on the back of his head, but other than that i really like it, ESPECIALLY since this was my first wig job. (yes you heard that right, start cringing XD)
