+ Sora Wig Number Two + by Spwinkles + Sora Wig Number Two + by Spwinkles
My first spikey wig attempt!!
And here's a really ugly collage. xD

A little while ago I thought it would be a good idea to have a second wig for my Sora cosplay since I've been wearing the first one (awesomely styled by my buddeh Soyo!!) A LOT. I didn't expect to wear this costume so much. Hurr.

I think it needs a break before it gets past the point of not being able to be revived after every few wears. (My Orihime and Hinata wigs have been worn the most and all always need some re-styling or combing after wear and tear.)
I'll still definitely be wearing it though.

The base wig for my first Sora wig is hard to find so I looked for alternatives and found this tutorial by Saeru on Cosplay.com: [link]
So I decided the Punky style wig (color 12) would be a good base. I got it from amphigory.com: [link]

I followed the tutorial along with remembering how my friends have styled their wigs and then proceeded to pretend to know what I am doing. xDD

The hardest thing was those stupid 3-pronged side spikes. (UGH WHY NOMURA). I was going to make it just one spike but then made a last minute decision and tried the 3-pronged thing.
If I end up not liking it, I'll just wash it out and re-do it. :B

All and all it was pretty fun doing this. Not sure if I want to make a habit of it but I don't forsee too many crazy haired cosplays in the near future.

Slight edit: I changed the bottom right picture to a picture that showed the wig more fully.

Products used: Got2B glued hairspray, Got2B glued "rubber cement", scissors and a wig comb

Hi i was wondering if you can help me, I looked up where you got your wig, and there is two that are both called punky and I like but which one did you choose? The top one is 31$ bottom is 16$ and I was just confused cause I really like your wig and I want mine to come out well

I'm pretty sure the one I got was the $31 one! Because the quality was pretty good. I have a feeling the $16 is made of cheaper material.

rawr I need a Sora wig so bad! I'm sorry, but you just can't have Roxas without Sora. I'm Roxas for my local con in september and my lovely So-chan is going as... well... Sora. Where can I find a good tutorial and that wig you used?

>.< girls are better at male cosplay then most boys... ~-~' the easiest thing for me to do is invent an anime where the character looks just like me... then i cosplay as my self... then ???... then Profit. OFTO

I think it's because a lot of anime or video game character have rounder and more feminine features a lot of the time? I think it's easier for girls to get away with it more. XD
Though I've seen some really amazing male cosplayers too---it pretty much has to do with face shape, imo!
Haha yeah I don't think I could get any more accurate if I cosplayed myself. But how would people know you'd be cosplaying?? xDD

You're welcome! (Ok... a little late xD)

I was just planning things to create my own Sora wig and realized that the link to the tutorial on cosplay.com timed out. :noes:
Seem they moved the forums to [link] :phew:

Okay, I already have Sora actionfigures, but I think I just print out an 1:1 model of his hairs for reference (papercraft ftw!) xD

Oh! I'll update the link, thanks!

Haha papercraft would be a good reference! xD

how long did it take for the wig to come in?

Spwinkles Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
You mean how long did it take for me to order the wig or how long did it take to style it? I didn't have to wait too long for the wig since the seller was in the US. And it took about 15 hours (give or take) to style it.

Currently I am working full time so I don't think I have the time to commission a wig like this at the moment but if I ever did do comissions, I'll probably write up a journal or put a link to commission info here or something~

If Tina Turner was a cosplayer I bet you she'd try this on her own hair.

She wouldn't need to! She already has the hair! 8D (Ok well, I guess nowadays her hair isn't like this I think lol)

how much do you suggest spending on a wig like this? Because I don't wanna pay too much and then fail at it ^^; (Like I mean the base only not all the hair products and everything, just the wig itself)
Reply
:iconspwinkles:
Spwinkles Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
I think this particular wig was around $30. I wouldn't spend more than that on it! (Unless shipping was involved.) [link]
