Question by Jo: Wig help for Tate Langon cosplay?
Anyone cosplayed him?
Because I’d looove to cosplay this guy: http://25.media.tumblr.com/3efbf6d20c555779077fb77ca5f307a4/tumblr_mvcou30e8u1qda813o1_500.jpg
but I can’t really find a good wig… I know that I could use for example a wig made for Hetalia Germany, but every wig I’ve seen just looks kind of.. wrong. Not natural. Do you know any quality wigs with an-OK-price that could go for him? Or just wigs that look like they’re quality?
Oh, and if you know any online tips on stylizing wigs it’d be nice if you could link something here (the hairstyle for the character I linked earlier) because I’ve never really tried to actually do anything with my wigs and I know that I will probably have to do that this time, since I’d like to make the wig look as natural as possible.-

You need a lace front wig. They are more expensive than regular wigs, but you can make a more natural hairline.
http://arda-wigs.com/products/cady a wig shop http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrNcVbdGqgA how to apply and basically what one looks like.
You basically cut the mesh close to the edge of the hairline and when you glue or tape it down over your skin, it looks like the hair is coming out of your skin because the lace is very translucent
You could also make your own lace front wig for cheaper but it’s time consuming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k_ieRs3TwA
You can probably find a cheap lace front wig if you hunt hard enough and then cut it and gel it back. These are just my suggestions.
