That one looks pretty good, Pura. You could even cut it to remove the fringe.

On the subject of dying wigs, has anyone ever successfully completely changed the colour of a wig? As in from white to brown?

What do you use for wig dyeing anyway? @.@ I have a platinum blonde wig that would be much more useful to me if it was darker.

Acrylic ink + isopropyl alcohol + in a spray bottle = wig dye.

Dying of wigs has never looked that successful to me. Small colour changes are easier, but going from white to dark brown may be an issue, especially with a wig that long. Better to hunt out the right wig in this case, IMHO.

Yeah, I do think wig dyeing can be a bit hit and miss, so if you *can* find the right colour, you should run with it.

I can find the right colour, but then it doesn't have the right style =____=;;

IT'S SUCH A BASIC WIG. YOU'D THINK IT'D BE EASIER TO FIND SOMETHING OTL.

OH GOD. I never thought of that. I am extremely sensitive to the cold. *0* Poor circulation, my limbs go all white and numb in the slightest chill. xD I shall have to wear warm things underneath! >3

Mrrrr...If I were to line mine, which colour should I use? Looks like there is a bit of red there, but I can't really tell. //squints eyes.

But it doesn't snow very often, right?

I wore shorts and sandals right up 'til the day there was snow that survived the morning thaw. I am very good at ignoring the elements. I'll bring winter-wear just in case, I suppose.

I've dyed blonde and white wigs, to: red, purple, yellow and silver so far.

Sharpie pens can work too, though they have limited colours and are expensive(ish)
Or notsharpiebutlooksimilarpens; they are cheaper and you can find heaps of colours, but they run out faster and are hmm kinda diluted? oO = so it totally stuffs up any ratio if you're actually trying to make a dye.

I've only experimented in darking wigs but I haven't actually darkend a full wig before.

Just note that sometimes dying the wig (depending which method + wig length) might end up costing more then buying a more expensive wig in the right colour.

Anywho here's some threads if you do wanna look into it.
Threads: here sharpie info and here sharpie faq also fwink

and closer to home xD

Hurr. I made a bleach cosplay, so I know how to make kimonos 8DD. It was so easy that I can't wait xDD.

... And then I will die with hours and hours of hand painting OTL. What colour material should I use for the base? The one that has the most colour, so I don't have to hand paint that xDD. //will go look at image soon 8D.

Hurr. I plan to cheat with my obi 8D. I'm make it, and then join it with dome things. Like what syne did with Espeon xDD.

Edit: Kohane's kimono, do you think it's mainly yellow, or mainly red?

Mainly yellow, I'd say. Plus it'd be easier to paint the darker colour on top of the base one.

Yeah, I thought mainly yellow too. And I didn't think about the darker colour thing xD. (I SHOULD. I'M AN ART STUDENT. IT'S AWFUL TRYING TO PAINT LIGHT OVER DARK Dx).

Yellow it is 8D.
