Ahiru - Episode 6 Wig Test by Spwinkles Ahiru - Episode 6 Wig Test by Spwinkles
Nooo surprise, I'm doing another Ahiru cosplay. I have a bad habit of cosplaying multiple outfits of characters I really like.... This is one I've wanted to do for a looong time! So I'm going to finally tackle it. I hope to have it done by Fanime.

This wig is for her episode 6/Sleeping Beauty ballet outfit.
I followed a few tutorials online on how to do the bun. I think I used this one the most for reference: [link]

It's an odango tutorial but it could be modified~

I also used the FW ink dye instead of sharpies this time to get it darker.
Dye info here: [link]

There's a few more things I want to work on--like, flating some of the back with hairspray, getting lighter bobby pins and try to get the crown a little straighter.
This wig is KINDA heavy and slides back a little because of the bun. At least it's not as heavy as Toph is. I still have to bobby pin it everywhere. :\

I had to mix a few colors: flame orange,process magenta and white. I experimented a few times to see how many drops of each color I used. I think only one white drop, it's been a long time since I dyed this wig. xD But those were the three I used.

i LOVE IT!!! I can't wait to see your finished outfit :)

Are you making the tutu yourself? i've been trying to find a tutorial on how to make a pancake tutu without real results (well i did find one but i got very confused)..

Thanks! I can't wait to finish! I was supposed to have it done last year but lots of stuff came up and I didn't want to rush it.

After an attempt working with tulle, I decided I never wanted to work with it again! xD I found a tutu online and dyed it yellow. It's not a pancake tutu but I think it'll work well enough for the Sleeping Beauty outfit.

I understand the feeling!

I've heard that about tulle :) Well i've looked into making a pancake tutu and it looks really complicated :( So that's why i'm not wanting to do her default outfit :\

If I was a better seamstress I might work with tulle but yeah, it was just not coming out the way I wanted. I admire anyone who can make a tutu, I've known a few! But I just did not have the patience. XD

i was planning on dyeing my Ahiru wig this summer and i wanted to use the FW ink dye method. i love how the color in this ended up and I was wondering what the formula of colors you used to get it this way was?

Ahh let's see, since the base wig of this one was pink, I kind of changed up the ratios.
When I colored a blonde wig, it was for every 1 cup of alcohol, I used 6 drops of process magenta, 1 1/2 drops of white, 1 drop of orange and 1 drop of scarlet. Sometimes I'd leave out scarlet if I thought the color was coming out too dark.
If you start with a pink base wig, you might not need as much magenta. Maybe 4 drops or 5 instead of 6?
But definitttttely experiment with test pieces! Then you can see what shade you like the best.
