Sorry I had to move my posts. The trip was part of a class and the assignment is keeping a blog, so I had to start a separate one. If you want to read it, just follow that one too... sorry for the inconvenience.

Three bags of extensions + a long wig from Amphigory that doesn't like to cooperate. There is still a lot more work to do...
When making wefts, I use a matching fine tulle rather than ribbon or caulk. Its light weight, more flexible, and blends very easily. I have no problem brushing wefts I make. For the ponytail, I sewed the wefts in with a machine, but for the wig I sewed them in by hand. If I'm just adding wefts for volume, I take the faster route and hot glue them in (going a bit sparingly with the glue though).
I still have a lot of other costumes to finish by Otakon.
I am going on a break for a few weeks because I'm going on a trip! I'm taking a summer class at my school that will take me across Paris, Florence, Venice, and Milan. For the duration of the trip, this blog will be devoted to posting my travel photos and adventures (wherever I have internet to do so). See you then!
