Natsuo Wig by Jequila Natsuo Wig by Jequila
For my Natsuo (from Loveless) cosplay, which is planned for this years Supanova!

I couldn't find any fake fur that would even closely match the colour required (firetruck red being the closest), so I ended up getting a white wig and fake fur, and dyed both. It was my first time dying a wig (other then the roots of Axel) so I was a bit nervous. It came out a bit streaky, as you can see, but I think it makes it look natural :)

I would have liked to add billions of extensions to make it super thick like his hair, but this wig was already enough 'firsts' for me xD

id you ever want to sell this wig...I would totally buy it! ( heheh XD)
I actually cosplayed youji before, and found a natsuo wig on ebay by cosplay wig (who specifically cut it for his character) but got it for my friend who we cosplayed together but this was back in like 06 or 07 and we stopped being friends sense : < I've offered to buy the wig from her but she won't let me DX it was the awesomest natsuo wig and just looked amazing like this one dose<3 I'm sure you plan to keep it ^-^ but just putting the offer out there if you ever think on it!!

Unfortunately a lot of the dye faded or came off, so it's not really the right colour anymore :( It was a learning experience, haha.

this is awesome! im doing a natsuo cosplay for supanova 2011 but i cant find a decent wig or ears anywhere! D: did you just use normal hair dye on it?
Reply

Jequila Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
No, normal hair dye will not stick to synthetic fibers. Go on cosplay.com and to the wig forum. They have a sticky all about dyeing wigs :) You can use the sharpie or the FW recipe, they both work great.

Where did you buy the wig before you dyed it?

Jequila Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Ebay~ That particular seller has stopped selling now, but it was nothing special. If you're looking for a good wig store, I recommend [link] or [link] I'm fairly sure that they're the same person, and I buy from them frequently.

You can probably use fabric dye, but I used FW inks and alcohol (wig dye) so that they matched perfectly :)

Nah, easy as. Just go slowly with matching thread. Try not to sew the fibers, just the netting.

I used the FW ink method, you can find the recipe in the cosplay.com wig forum. I used red and back FW ink, and then a few drops of blue sharpie to get a purple tinge.

What did you dye the wig with? I may be able to give you some tips on making it less streaky next time! ♥
Reply
:iconjequila:
Jequila Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
It went streaky because it's a mix of two fibers. So one soaked up the dye well, and the other not so well xD

Which fibers is the wig made from & what dye did you use?
