chigiiiiiiiii - S. Italy Wig by Spwinkles chigiiiiiiiii - S. Italy Wig by Spwinkles
South Italy is one of the best things about Hetalia. 8I
...In my opinion, hahah.

My skin is kind of tanned right now thanks to summertime. That is working in my favor for this cosplay. xDD
----

Ok I've been wanting to cosplay as him forever and I had a wig sitting around for him for a while too but didn't style it until recently. The base wig only needed some trimming and I hairsprayed the bangs so I can at least pretend there's a part in there.
The Italian curl is actually separate from the wig, unlike the ahoge I made for the America & Canada wigs I styled. I just bobby pin it in.

Originally the curl had wire in it and it was much thicker but I ended up not liking how that looked. I pulled it all apart but lucklily the curl itself stayed together so I just hairsprayed and white glued it to death so it stays up by itself.

Sorry that first picture is kinda blurry--it was taken with a mirror. D:

This, madame, is awesome.
If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy the wig from?

Thanks!
The base wig was found on eBay. I was lucky and had some extra long wig hair that was in the same color to make the curl with.

I like did a jazzy-spazzy-armsy-wiggly thingy when I saw this for the first time, (being Spain and all) because YOU LOOK LIKE LOVINO/ROMANO/MI ROMA-TA-TOMA. O_O Dude. Seriously. Dude.

(I probably sound like a creep, don't I? *failsatlifebro*)

But thanks so much! I'm cosplaying as him soon for a con and I'm excited to finally be able to!

I think I'd just do his uniform. Maybe more someday but at least his uniform.

Thanks! Luckily his hair color is pretty easy to find, wig-wise. Oh noo, why? xDD; (I think it was scarier looking when it was more thick, haha.)

Funny I had a hard time finding a good wig for him xD
Then I found a good one, but when I got it, it was more like Italy's hair colour >3<
Luckily I'll do Italy instead xD
I'm sorry to say it, but it looks a bit tortured xD;

Yeah I just searched "dark auburn" and I found a lot of wigs that matched Romano's.

lol well it kind of is! xD I pulled it apart from a wire and glue so it's a little weird in places. I'm surprised it didn't fall apart. I may remake it at some point but right now I'll probably leave it as is.

I envy your wig styling skills.
My Romano wig didn't look near this well made!
Also, would you mind telling me how you did the Nyotalia England's pigtails? Are they clips or did you just pull them up? ( n v n )

:iconspwinkles:
Spwinkles Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011
Thank you! I wish my curl was more smooth but I am just glad it didn't become a mess when I pulled hot glue and wire from it. XD
And England's pigtails are just clips~

iFUGU Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011
Meh, I just wrapped teh hair around some wire and melted the end xD I didn't have the courage to start messing around with glue.
Could you tell me how the clips are made? I'm gonna cosplay her in a few weeks, and I'm having troubles with the wig. So how is the hair attached to the clips if you know what I mean? D:

:iconspwinkles:
Spwinkles Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011
I've never personally made pony-tail clips, these just came this way. (I got the wig off of eBay)
From the looks of it, they just have a hair tie and wrap the hair through and around the clip somehow.
Since there are many wigs you can get already pre-clipped, I'd just get one of those without having to worry about making it yourself.

iFUGU Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2011
Oh, thank you! I think I'll order one pre-made if I can't get this to work without having to cut the wig. I don't want to take the risk that the next thing I know I have a short wig and two messy balls of hair. 8D
