i'll go dig it out later, but i'm almost 100% sure it's kankelon... i don't like buying wigs that are made of any other fibre, really. 8| 'cause you run into issues, haha... i'm also going out over the next few days to mitre 10 to get some silicon lubricant to detangle long wigs, just in case... though from what i've seen from the wig so far, the curls tangle less than straight fibres. which is weird.

I keep reading MKR as My Khemical Romance. and I know chemical is spelt with a C. @_@



Also, I fixed your page stretching, Loosy. >|

So far I'm thinking I'll be doing the autumn haori... P:


I'd go with Loosy's idea of the tinting, methinks. :3

EDIT: HOLY COW. I JUST REALISED JEN IS POSTING FOR ONCE. KORE WA NAN DESU KA.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I AM DOING HERE.

I quite like the oupit alex put in my pic on page 1, but I'd prefer to match his Watanuki if possible - bettar photos, I think.

Ohgod. I hope I lean enough as a part of the MC group to actually do this without burdening y'all~

@Greg: If you guys make the haori, it will be MUCH easier than your magna carta costume. Razz

EDIT: Question: Would you guys say that me and Angie's kimono are lined in that contrast colour, or would you say that that's a juban (second layer)? (References from heaps of angles: http://persocom-san.blogspot.com/2009/01/maru-and-moro-from-xxxholic-by-lilics.html )

EDIT EDIT: Actually, looking at the close up pics, they're already wearing a white juban, so maybe it is just the lining?

EDIT EDIT EDIT: I checked the art that the figure is based on, and that's not much help - it looks like there is another layer, but it also looks like that layer is the white juban and they're nekkid. D< *frustration*

...Maybe we should just do it as the lining out of laziness. XD

I LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK. I might make the lining a bit longer so it pokes out the bottom and top, maybe? Or do you think that will just look sloppily made?

Ahhh, Cosworx. IHU. It has good wigs for Kohane, but I really don't like them //personal grudge 8D;;

I'll get one from them if I HAVE to, though :/ Or is someone else makes an order, then I'll join xDD.

For Kohane I was thinking:

This one from LiSL, but it has chin legth 'bangs', and I'd need to dye it the right colour.

Or This one from Cosworx. IT'S PRETTY AND WORKS WELL. I dunno if it comes in two colours though (like the image there does). BUT sdhfdjkndjkjknv IT'S PRETTY. BUT COSWORX = DEATH FOR ME Dx. //... personal grudge 8D;;

@Loosy ... That's an awesome wig ;A; BUT IT HAS BANGS. I forgot to mention it also needs to be bang-less Dx

@ Jen's dad I could, but I'd be afraid to burn it. And I've never used a hair curler/straightner in my life ...

I far prefer ordering from Ebay than from Cosworx - the quality at cosworx varies greatly, apart from if you're getting a cosworx exclusive wig I've found. (those Ivys are gorgeous) Ebay also is a LOT cheaper and quicker, and faaaaar more variety.

But Ebay does have it's downsides - not always guaranteed wig quality and not as efficient at colour matching. It really depends on where you look. Try to steer away from the "FREE SHIPPING~!" places as that just means it's a really cheap wig with shipping included. But then again, my Renge wig had free shipping and that was really nice, and arrived in less than a week. It's all a gamble. 8D

FREE SHIPPING. I DO LOVE 8D.

Does anyone know a few good sellers that I can search though?

//goes to hunt through people I've previously bought from

Edit: WOW IT'S SO PRETTY. Lul. It's blonde, but perfect. I'd need to dye it xD.

What does everyone think of this wig? It's pretty much right, apart from the bangs, but they'd work if I hair sprayed them to the side >___>

My favourite idea is buying a white wig in the right style and dying it though :/
