where on Ebay did you get your wig? it looks so awesome! and does is get tangled alot? I got mine from Ebay and it tangles loads DX is there anything i can do to stop it? (i probably sound really thick haha) you're beautiful.... also, did you but the official cosplay? because i'm just putting mine together and i don't know where to get the arm bands or the ribbon... sorry, that was loads of questions - I LOVE YOUR COSPLAY! ^-^
There's conditioner and brushes for wigs (a wide comb would do fine too), and mild setting spray too. And you could try using strong hairspray for the top part to style it. Or anti-frizz spray for actual hair for the tangle. Heat resistant is preferable when buying wigs. Since it's synthetic though, it will still get frizzy and finicky in humidity and heat, buuut they're loads cheaper than those quality ones people use everyday.
Mine didn't tangle too much. I could mostly fix it with a comb, or my fingers. Just be really careful and patient! Don't try to force it through the hair, work little by little, even if it's annoying. I find it..therapeutic >_>
I did buy the official cosplay. But I didn't use the shirt or the pants, because I looked like a pillow case. Try craft stores for the little metal buckle? You could also use an elastic, and make a "fake" buckle out of something, then paint it silver. Try ebay for the ribbon? Or just find something similar. For my "summer Grell", I had a black and red one with skulls on it.
Remember, it doesn't have to be 100% accurate! Just be the character, and feel his/her/its fashion sense and personality. A good cosplay focuses on detail, so make it look as polished as possible (Like eyes, eyebrows, nails, jewelry, etc.). You can make it your own though ^-^ Completely become the character, and feel comfortable, because you ARE what you're cosplaying ;D Personality,tone of voice, even the way you move, can make a big difference I feel like :3
O.O This is so long...hope it..helps? Heheh thankyou so much! ^-^ Good luck!! When do you think you'll wear it? I mean, cast your disguise and show that you're Grell Sutcliff?
don't worry about it being long, it helped! ^_^ sorry, a couple more questions: where can i get the wig brush and setting spray? i have a wide-toothed comb, but i'm just wondering because I've never seen any in shops - would i have to get them online? thanks for the tips with the tangling in the wig ^.^ I'll have makeup, and the eyebrows, and i'll probably paint my nails, but i won't have eye contacts i'll try and get the teeth, but i might just end up having to get fangs instead of all across the top - i know you said the cosplay doesn't have to be 100% accurate, but will not having the contacts and stuff matter loads? Thanks! And I'm going to my first con on 21st July, which is when I'll be wearing it I'm excited!
Hmmm where do you live? I just went to Sallys Beauty Supply. But I guess search for a hair supply/salon store, or a beauty supply store? Like the ones with hair bleach, crazy hair dye, normal hair dye, make-up, wigs, extensions, scissors...? If not, then you might have to get it online ._.
I got green circle lenses...they have a lot of sights online that sell them. If you've never worn contacts before though..I don't recommend it. For teeth, you could totally go with fangs :3 they also have stuff that blacks out your teeth, so you could black out some parts, and make the white parts look pointed too. But I've seen amazing Grells without all that.
Gah yay! I went to my first one this April. SO much fun.
I live in the north west of England, near Manchester >.< i might know one place, but i doubt they'll do it -i can try though yeah, I've never wore contacts before, so I don't think i'll end up getting those hm I've heard of that - not sure where I'd get it, but I can look I can't wait to go! I've been waiting for like 9 months or something ridiculous like that XD I hope everything goes alright though :L
