Is the last help thread gone? I wanted to post the questions unanswered and answer the ones I can't but I can't find it.

>>8768623
Did you try the suggestion thread first for that? Are you a big guy? I hope you are not a girl trying to do that. For the feet you would need invisible shoes so you don't walk around barefooted and/or take off your shoes during photos. For the bottom half you would need something to cover close to your knees like the game and some kind of fundashi or male type underwear. Hope this helps.

>>8768634
Ebay/Taobao/Walmart. Something for your head or just in general? You can find giant red bows almost anywhere hun.

>>8768660
How manly? If you mean bara please don't unless your outfit is 100% on point. It's not that hard to cosplay as Bridget as a man. My suggestion is do the Vastedge/slot machine version. If you don't know what Guilty Gear Vastedge XT or what Guilty Gear is in general outside of 'lol Bridget' I suggest you brush up on the lore so you don't seem like 'one of those people.'

I'm the same anon who asked what character you are doing.

If you want to do Mikleo do basic contouring and some high lights to get a more male nose. Don't cake on the makeup. Make sure to do the other stuff like use moisturizer/etc. You don't need a lot makeup wise; you just need to make sure that your shoulders are more 'manly' along with using a binder. So probably minimum around the cheeks and nose area.

http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/tutorials/crossplayfm is funny enough and helpful.

I cosplay as dudes a lot recently and I'm starting to get into it myself.

So I'm planning on cosplaying as Vamp from mgs4 and I needed some suggestions for the harness straps on his chest. I've already made them using parachute straps I purchased at an army surplus but like with SnK straps if I slouch or sit down the belts just droop and look like shit.

Would anyone with experience explain a way I could sew the belts in a way that it'll sit snug on my body without being 'too' tight or would it be a stupid idea to sew elastic to the underside of the belts?

Looks like a cropped blazer or a cropped military jacket. You'll have to mix your own paint, go with Ben Nye or Kryolan brand. Don't paint your hands though it'll sweat off immediately and ruin your clothes. Use gloves.
You could probably just get a polo and alter it so it's button down.

Would it be that bad if I use a black wig for this? I'm black and I feel like when I wear this color (and blonde shades) it looks awful and clashes with my skin horribly, or maybe I'm just overthinking?
>>
>>8780570
It doesn't have to be exactly this shade of orange, but I'd recommend staying at least in that color range, personally. Get a bunch of samples and see if there's a shade that looks better next to your skin tone. Just make sure to match your ears to it.
>>8780553
It's way too heavy looking on the sides, and your center chunk is too... chunky? Invest in a razor comb and use that to lighten up all the layers. Also, a texturing product will go a long way toward getting the lighter look the character has.
>>8776201
Keep in mind that with foam, if it flexes, a lot of times your paint will flex with it, often resulting in cracking and flaking off. I've used foam for similar things, you just have to be careful with placing the gaps where your joints will bend.
>>
>>8780579
I did use a razor comb, though I guess I could spread out the middle.
Also there isn't really a "lighter" look, it's just the lighting on the render.

also any sort of texture product you could recommend?

Wigs are my weakest subject.
>>
>>8780583
I mean lighter in terms of weight, not in color. Getting more into the shorter layers on top and fluffing them up will make it look lighter in those terms, matching the ref pic.

Going to be starting making this tomorrow and I have two things I'm still a little stuck on.

1. Is the black skirt under the pleated skirt a petticoat or just a second skirt/slip with ruffles at the bottom? I had asked about this on my personal Facebook and people tied with what they thought it was.

2. For the ghost, I decided to make it in a similar method that people make fursuit heads so it's more light weight, but I can't think of a great way to attach it to the wig. Any suggestions for that? I had thought of sewing those hair combs things on its hands/mouth to stick into the wig but I haven't had much luck with those in the past with smaller headpieces.

Ayeee I'm planning a Neo Queen Serenity cosplay next year (90's anime version tho so no sleeves)
I've seen a lot of people use worbla/ craft foam for the sleeves with varying results. If you use that approach you could possibly try covering each cut of the worbla with fabric by using a soldering iron or hot knife to cut the fabric pieces exactly/ seal the edges? don't use it on non-synthetics though or it'll singe.

My question, what's the best approach to Serenity's wig? Using Arda's chibi wig as a base and then making the buns / pigtails seems like the easiest route, but I'm worried that the classic fibers will tangle too much to be elegant (Unless I use some of that motions oil sheen spray to keep it detangled? Is that stuff any good?).

Is there another less tangly wig line that has a split part in the back as well, or am I just gonna have to glue a bunch of wefts in a normal wig to make one?

I think peachskin would work well, it has a really nice drape for things like this and sews easily.
Poly/cotton sateen would also work, but if you're not into the sheen you can just use the backside of it. Some sateens have a really nice 10% stretch for fitting.
>>
>>8782254
i think with a real petticoat underneath you might get too much poof for the pleats, but if you don't have the same amount of hips then I would just go with a petti.

For the ghost, if you REALLY want security then you can try making an armature underneath the wig and attaching the ghost to it in a similar fashion to this tutorial: https://arda-wigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/tutorial.pdf
if you want it removable, then maybe you can attach some super strong earth magnets on both the armature/ ghost since the ghost isn't terribly heavy?

>>8773680
if you just look up "lace up back boots" you have a lot of options open to you. if you're looking for these exact boots for a cosplay, you might be better off making them with boot covers or buying a pair like this, cutting out/ hemming the back, getting a grommet puncher, and then putting in your own grommets.
>>
>>8782604
Thank you so much for the idea and that tutorial on the armature! I think that would really work for this.

And I have 42 inch hips, and was also concerned about the petti pushing the pleats out, so maybe doing just an underskirt is the way to go. I super appreciate your input on this.

Her outfit is more formal so I could also definitely see velveteen being used on the top/non shorts part as well.

If you're having trouble finding the colors you need in all of those, my usual go-to for wide color selection and formal looking fabric is the wrong side of Joann's casa collection (not the best quality, but decent for how cheap it is with coupons).
Otherwise, fabric.com has duchess satin (use the backside probably), a variety of poplins (for more casual/matte approach), and taffetas.

>>8785892
One pair you'll still be able to see through slightly (I used to be able to see doodles on my legs during ballet class pretty clearly), but when you layer two pairs of dance tights you'll get some weird patterns on the tights from them stretching over each other. It's not noticeable at all though unless you're up close to it.
Tattoo-specific concealer might be the better route in this case.

I have really broad shoulders too, and I find that if you just put some of the wig hair in front of you/ block out some of your shoulders it breaks up the silhouette well enough. Cut the wig hair going in front of you a bit shorter so it's not super annoying and won't cover up all of your dress.

I've been cosplaying as a Nazgûl a couple of times and I've run into one problem. The arms of my cloth robe keeps sliding off the metal gauntlets when I move around too much.
Since my vision is poor in the hood it's a real pain to get them back out ontop of the gauntlets again.
I was thinking of sewing velcro into the robe arms and onto the gauntlets.To keep them from sliding off like that.
But maybe there is a better solution?

Any idea on how could I make platforms/heels like pic realted? Already tried the 'bunch of flip flops glued together' that you can find anywhere, but didn't work for me since the heel keep bending and made really difficult to walk that way. Also tried to have a real shoemaker making it for me but it ended in a small horror story. Thanks in advance.

Best way to paint shoe soles???

I have these slip resistant shoes that I'm going to use for the base of my boot covers but I need the soles to be a different color. (I got these in black since that was the only color available and also I needed something slip-resistant since where I live is covered in ice half of the year).

I was thinking of priming and spray painting them but I've done that in the past with different shoes only to have them turn out sticky and they never fully dried. Would painting them by hand be better? Or maybe I didn't do it right.

Also it would be great if I could get the paint to stay instead of peel or flake off. But if there's no way to do that then I'll just reapply paint when needed. No biggie.

Foam isn't strong enough it will get even more flimsy when you add the weight of the cover fabric. For my black mage hat I used a thick stiff felt that's sold in the interfacing section and coat-hanger weight wire hot glued+taped to the edge. Yours looks even wider so you might need to add extra support by adding a wire ring around the head hole and have some wires radiating between the inner and outer circles.

Do you have any experience altering patterns? Looks like a standard bodysuit with a circular cut out that reattaches slightly at the neckline.
The sleeves look like the most complicated part. Not sure if thats just the illustration that makes it looks so hard and pointy, but that's some serious padding. Maybe foam insert to keep that stiff shape, and a lot of mock-ups.
The good thing about how the design curves around the breasts from the shoulders is that, if sewn well, will give you some excellent busty shape as where most streamline bodysuits without darts or other tricky pattern/sewing maneuvers lose the silhouette.
I suggest doing the breast area in 3 parts. 1- centre front panel with the zip. 2- middle panel between the channels connecting center front and side breast.
3- side area, shoulder to underbust.

Check out Yaya Han's McCall bodsuit pattern, it's actually a pretty decent base.

Don't forget to accommodate your bra stuffing/boob magic and make a mock-up before moving on to the real thing. And consider either adding boning to the suti ( don't forget to add some heavy duty lining) , or wearing an underbust corset. It will honestly make you look just that much better.

Hope I explained myself well enough... don't mean to confuse you.

You can take an existing and similar commercial pattern and modify it or make a basic vest pattern from scratch, then make muslin mock-ups and alter the pattern until it looks like what you need and fits well.

I also looked for Chobbits tutorials as Chii has that hairstyle too, but no luck. I'm worried that since the wig hair falls in a straight line, rather than flaring out like Homura's the 'v' will hardly be noticeable or just look weird. It seems like not many people do this so I'm also wondering if it's just better to leave it one length.

Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia has a similar hair cut. He has an inverted W instead of an inverted V.

However, this is one of those things that simply don't translate well to real life. Yes, it would technically be closer to the original, but since the hair doesn't naturally flare out like you said it'll just looks like someone messed up a hair cut. See pic related. This cosplayer imitated the game hair style (and did well) but in real life it still simply looks chopped. I'd say save yourself the time and effort, anon.

For fucks sake. Just use pic related instead, this is obviously bad advice. Your wig will get crusty and also super glue is usually exothermic to speed up the curing process and will melt the wig.
>>
>>8796603
You will need some thick leather for the main part and belt leather for the actual belt. And a sizeable square of vegetable tan leather. 3 oz veg tan should do well for forming the holster.

To form the holster cut a block of wood to the size and basic shape of the gun it will hold and soak veg tan leather in warm water for about 30 minutes , maybe longer if required. Next use small nails to stretch the veg tan over your block and shape it, you want it tight. Leave it overnight to dry and harden. This will make it take the shape you want. Simply cur around your new form leaving room to sew it to the back and voila. Gun holster.


Or you could lay out your gun marker around it adding half inch then cut the bottom out fold over and sew from barrel to butt.
>>
>>8796630
Don't forget to use a blowdryer with this to make sure that it dries quickly and keeps the shape that you want. This is literally what 99% of cosplayers use for spikes.

Super glue also likes to catalyze up and turn opaque white which would make a black wig look gross

You could save money if you use the fold method instead of the form method though, that way you can just forgo buying veg tan and make the "pocket" out of the same leather as the backing. The small pockets can easily be made by cutting two oval shaped pieces for the sides and one larger rectangle strip. Sew down and fold the strip for a pouch that you can rivet down.
>>
>>8796729
Tandy isnt the greatest place unless you get wholesale. Hidehouse is another good one and is a good bit cheaper. Also just buy veg tan as a whole for the belt and holster. I tend to go with a heavier 8-9 oz for belts and a 4 oz for my holsters.

Well, depends on how you do it I guess. I'm a stickler for detail so I'd rather (very very VERY) carefully paint the line on (since that's what real socks with stripes would look like anyway) than put on elastic since it looks more like you made it.

There are, I've seen a few. You may have to browse through McCall/Butterick/Simplicity/Burda/New Look and frankenstein together 2-3 different patterns though, like the bodice/collar from one and the sleeves and skirt from another. Her dress is simplified in the anime compared to the game with no pintucks or stripes/pintucks on the skirt hem, so pick a version first then look.

/tg/ regular here with a couple requests. My friends and I recently started a DnD campaign, and we floated the concept of a prop for each of our characters.

My character is a sorcerer, so I'm looking for suitable wands. Nothing fancy, just looking for something with a Harry-Potter-esque look to them, with enough difference that they'd be easily distinguished from each other

I'm also looking for a blank, featureless mask - no nose, no mouth, just eyeholes - which I'm aiming to paint later. Everything I've found online is either far more than I'm willing to pay for a play-pretend prop (fuck you Army of Two masks, you're so fucking perfect for this but you're like $90 minimum, I pirated the rulebooks for God's sake) or something homemade ("I took a mask with features than filled everything in/covered everything in modeling clay"), and I am certainly no craftsman.
>>
>>8796805
As someone who once fretted over needing black kneesocks with two white stripes and only being able to find them with one white stripe just sew on the elastic or put white socks on your legs, tape off your stripes, paint with fabric paint and sit back and watch aovie while they dry. The there is literally no one who will give a shit about this besides you and take that in the spirit it which its intended. I wasted a lot of time in my starting days trying to hunt down the perfect product and it's really not worth it in the end.

First try with making anything fabric/sewing wise (I normally just make props, mech suits, and accessories) but want to do an Uta cosplay as I've already made the mask. Problem is I've no idea what the jacket/coat(?) thing he wears is called so I can't find patterns of it or something similar. Also is this a viable baby's first sewing project?

I personally prefer the original design from the otome game, so I'll go for that. If only there were better pics of her dress from the game. As a novice seamstress, I never heard of pintuck so it's really nice to learn a new term.

Correct me if I'm wrong. This is how I see the dress so far since I'm trying to look for patterns:
- Empire-waist with ribbon separating the bodice from the skirt
- Vertical pintuck from bodice to skirt
- Horizontal pintuck around skirt
I'm not so worried about the sleeves since they get covered up by the cardigan.

Looks like a hybrid between a trenchcoat and a one-button fitted coat. Personally I'd try looking for sewing patterns for a fitted coat, and then modify the pattern by extending the bottom another ten-twenty inches or so to get the hip length. Preferably you want a pattern that includes shoulder pads to get that broad shoulder look, but you can easily stitch them into a coat anyway, not like someone is going to make you take it off and inspect the insides and then judge you on it.

The breast pocket is called a welt pocket and is pretty fiddly to do. You might want to fake this by sewing two strips of fabric and that chain directly onto the coat, instead of making it a real, working pocket.

The pockets on his hips are called cargo pockets. Have not tried making those, but they're some variation on patch pockets so they should be less fiddly than the welt pocket.

The four big buttons on his coat look to be just sewn on.

>baby's first sewing project?

Oh lol. I have an entire book solely devoted to making fitted men's coats. The (inter-)lining, the sleeves, the elbow allowance, the fold of the collar and the order everything is sewn down is pretty tricky. If you walk into a shop and tried to buy a real, proper coat that looks like this it'll probably cost a pretty penny. It's definitely not a walk in the park, I don't advise drafting the whole thing from scratch yourself.

That said, you can try picking up a ready-made pattern like this one, check out the instructions and see if you can follow them. You can google for instructions for welt pockets and cargo pockets and add them in yourself, along with the shoulder pads. The sleeve cuffs look to be an easy fix as well. Since it's a cosplay coat you could probably mess it up a little and no one would care much. So yeah, take a look at the patterns in your fabric store and see if you can understand them. If so, then it's certainly feasible to sew this yourself.

Where does someone start if they want to sew something? Every time I look up a tutorial on how to make a certain item the video/guide goes over terms and techniques that I have no idea how to do or just skips over steps. I'd be following a video that say s"ok measure this, buy this etc" and then BAM the next step is like "after you made the pattern" or something along those lines and I'm completely lost. Often they'll say "top stitch this" or "run through your sewing machine" and I have no idea what they're talking about. Then when I go a look up the techniques they refer to as in order to find out what they do, it opens up a whole new set of additional terms and skills I have no idea what is going on.

This whole thing feels really intimidating when I can't even grasp the basic knowledge.
>>
>>8797979
Like learning a new language, there will be a little struggle with vocabulary at first. It's like you're trying to read a book; you need to build knowledge of letters and grammar at the same time therefore it can seem like a mountain.

Sewing is easy, just turn on your machine and pass through the fabric. Making garments is harder. I would say start by sewing straight lines on scrap fabric. Play around it and get comfortable. Test out the tension (number knobs) and different stitches. Then make skirts (look up patterns) and bows- those are straight-forward. Look up terminology you don't understand. Top stitch is just a regular straight line btw. Zig-zag is when it goes back and forth, also common to use. Pattern is building blocks for the garment.

Buy a simple beginner pattern (simplicity or mccall's) and go from there. Usually those patterns have a glossary at the beginning that explain the jargon used, and small pictures showing you how to cut/sew a particular step.

>>8798230

The cosplayers I've seen make a sort of frame that they wear on their shoulders (with a harness or something to keep it from toppling over/moving around too much).

The mask is usually placed further up, the cosplayer's head would be where the teethy mouth is in this photo. Then they choose a black fabric that's see-through to cover the front of no-face, so when the thing is worn, they can see right through the fabric. The rest of the frame is usually covered using a different, more opaque black fabric, don't want the whole thing to be transparent. I think the person underneath is usually wearing black as well, so it's harder to see that the front panel is semi-trasparent.

The stripe looks sewn on. The logo might be painted or embroidered. Maybe you can rip out the stitching? I'd be worried about it leaving marks or the middle stripe being attached to the seam.

First, make sure you know how realistic you want to go. I have a friend who did a pretty accurate copy of his PS1 battle model hair by folding cardboard and glueing the hair over it, and it looked way better than I make it sound from that description. If you want a less cartoony look (but still of the original game), the hair he has in the Remake trailer looks great to me. For something in between, look at KH or Dissidia.

The spikes are not actually the hardest part. Get the wig on a wig head or volunteer. Section the hair you're going to make into a spike, PULL IT DOWN FLAT, cut the end blunt to the height you want, then pull it up and hairspray/backcomb at the base. Setting lotion or fabric glue can be used to keep the spikes together at the top. It's surprisingly easy. I like to use a little diluted brown ink around the base of the spikes to give some depth.

For me, the hardest part was actually the sticky-out hair at the back, and I don't feel qualified to talk about what would make that look good because I never worked it out.

Nylon can be colored with acid dyes, so either silk dye or RIT + vinegar.

What I've been doing for Hans is having the ropes be purely decorative instead of real attachers, and putting large snaps underneath. I also planned to make the entire apron-shape out of the duck cloth I have and then cut out the squares for the blue and purple patches; it's messy, but so is his entire outfit, so I think it's appropriate.

EL wire is actually run at around 300V about 3x what comes out of the wall in the US. However its extremely small amount of current that's why they can run off of AA batteries.

>>8805091
Don't. Losing weight to "not look disgusting" to your boyfriend is a terrible reason to lose weight. If your boyfriend is disgusted by a little bit of chub, he should -not- be your boyfriend (or anyone's boyfriend for that matter).

If you want to lose weight for your own health, then by all means do so, but insecurity or feeling gross to an SO is never a good reason. Likewise, you can't really "lose 10lbs fast", especially if you can't work out. Cut sugars and processed foods from your diet, drink more water, count calories if you want to be healthier without a lot of exercise.

(Also this is a cosplay help thread, not a personal fitness help thread)

They aren't even flipping out, just offering some good advice. Are you sure you're not the overly sensitive one, anon?
>>
>>8805091
don't listen to that another anon. when you lose weight you will feel better about yourself, happier, and more confident.

Its perfectly normal to want to look good for your SO. My bf and I both work out for ourselves and to look good for each other, and that's part of a relationship.

that being said, count calories.
To lose weight you need to eat about 500 calories less than your normally do. If its possible for you to do a little bit of exercise with that, that would be even better. At home or in your backyard, carry about 5lbs in each hand (you can get water jugs if you don't want to buy weights) and do walking lunges. Do as many you can do without your heart rate escalating too much (if you get dizzy, take a break). Make sure your lunge is wide, its good for your ass. Do this every other day or every 3 days if you're busy.

If you actually do this yes you will lose weight and you will have a nice perky ass. 5'4" 98 lbs here.
>>
>>8805091
Everyone carries weight differently, and we wont really know what you qualify as a 'disgusting fatty' unless you post pics, but.

Anon, if you're 5'3 and 121 pounds you don't need to lose weight, you probably just need to tone up. Lift weights or do exercises like yoga and pilates, they wont get your heart rate up like sports will. Also eat well, and throw in some more protein to gain muscle. It wont happen overnight, or "fast" as you said, but I think this is what you need rather then losing fat.

On a side note, if you think youre fat for some minor reason like you have stomach rolls when you lean over, just stop. Everyone has rolls and imperfections, no matter what weight or fat content.

If you let all your life choices (especially those pertaining to your physical appearance) be determined by what others think of you, you're going to have a bad time. I'm almost 27 and I learned that the hard way.

Minor physical imperfections shouldn't put a relationship in jeopardy. Anon seems to be freaking out about her boyfriend thinking less of her because of a little bit of chub. If she wants to get healthy for her own sake, great, but I don't see her apparent panicking over what someone she's already in a relationship with thinks of her appearance as normal or healthy.

i'm talking on a more subconsious level. it's a social construct, but has been around for ages and is strongly rooted in psychology. it's just something that people do within the social structure, but most are unaware.

people tend to impart implied opinions or ideas onto the people around them until they are told by the person outright(think of assumptions made about someone looking at you on a train or bus) because of this it creates a false sense of security(or insecurity) until that thought is challenged by the reality. it's completely rational for OP to get upset and want to change since it is reasonable for her to want her bf to have positive feelings about her looks since it will(subconsiously at the very least) actually increase her own.

I don't have anything to remeasure right now but 2.5 weeks ago I was 42-28-41. My hips might not be optimal since my thighs aren't stick thin and I have the violin thing going on but I'll be toning up while making the accessories.

Honestly, just wax. Epilators are painful and sugaring runs the risk of a yeast infection over the braz area. Get a wax about three weeks before the con and see how your skin reacts, then get another wax the day/two days before so you aren't red.

is there any way to make your hips less noticeable in cosplay?
>>
>>8806033
I'm not a fan but if that's the best option, I'll suck it up. Thanks for the tips!
>>
>>8806023
are you sure you're a 36C??? how big is your band(underbust) if your bust is 42 you'd have to have atleast a 39 underbust so you'd be 38C or 40C if anything.

I think so. I'm not how to exactly explain but I have to wear my bras on the tightest setting or they'll slide right down. Because of that, I haven't considered changing sizes. It could be that I measured wrong or was fitted incorrectly though.
>>
>>8804955
I'd go with official art first.

Something that flowy may be chiffon or lightweight fabrics, hard to give further advice without seeing official screenshots or magazine spreads.

Unshiny. The only time shiny looks good is when its not satin and everything on the oufit matches. Which can be quite expensive. Look up Vensy on fb and her Miku is an ex. Of this.
>>
>>8806101
Yep, you're wearing the wrong size. A well fitting bra should fit on the loosest hook initially, and only use the tighter ones once it's stretched a bit. Check out ABraThatFits subreddit

Do big throwing stars (shuriken) have a different name? I am trying to buy bigger ones (like 1ft big) but having no luck. Any thought on keywords I can use?

What Ive tried:

Big throwing stars
Big shuriken
Switching that with "Large"

Pls help

That would look terrible, especially as the beige parts are supposed to be his legs. What you want to do is get some flesh toned leggings, which will help make your legs look much smoother, and then attach the black line to them and wear shorts overtop of them.
As for the staff, pvc pipe and foam base. gesso and fibreglass are the basics after that, but there are a few other options to you as well.

I like the form of this Madoka skirt, but I don't know how to do it. Any tips?
>>
>>8806808
But this looks terrible...
>>
>>8806813
Yeah I know it looks terrible I think the mushroom form is accurate. With more ruffles and bigger skirt would be really nice
>>
>>8798939
You'll have better luck with EVA foam desu.

>>8797323
Just modify something like this by adding ears and drawstrings around the neck:

The rest is a normal blue T-shirt + shorts. But please skip the chain because you'll look like a cringey edgelord.

It was a little hard since she's only like this a few seconds but I tried to get all I could of her. I think I know how I can attach the fabric at the back now, but any help on what kind of fabric the dress itself is would be appreciated. I definitely think I might go with chiffon. Is there any way to make it more poofy?

I bought some EL wire recently and I want the color to be just a little darker. It wont hurt the wire to paint it with a thin coat of acrylic, will it?
>>
>>8806945
Make a support structure out of boning or wiring, perhaps, to prop up the half-skirt in the back. You might need to have it on a belt or small harness hidden under the dress so that the weight is carried by your waist/hips. You can check and see what Penguindrum cosplayers did for their Princess of the Crystal cosplay for inspirations.

Does buyee sniper bids match the current price and gradually increase until they hit your maximum bid value, or does it just bid the amount you enter straight away? For example, the item I want is currently at 47,000 yen I placed a 90,000 yen sniper bid. Will my sniper bid bid 47,500 and continuously rise until it hits 90,000 yen or will it just place abid of 90,000 yen straight away?

Putting together an Ino cosplay but I'm really struggling with the wig. Is there any way to make the hairline look like it's pulled up into a ponytail? I've seen a lot of super natural looking widow's peaks wigs but I've only seen terrible unnatural wigs for Ino so I'm wondering if there's any way to make the ponytail look pulled back.

I'm planning on getting a lace front from Wig Is Fashion and then adding wefts for the bangs. That should be viable... right?

So I'm doing this version of asuka, and recreating the bottom half with red long leotard. i pretty much have a good idea on how to do everything. except the TINY black lines/piping of the suit.
i have no idea how to do it, and i want to be as accurate as possible. it's hard to paint on it because im small and it's a stretch material, making it hard to put painters tape on it and hard to adhere when it's off of me.
any suggestions?!
>>
>>8809087
i suggest getting a lacefront with clip-in bangs, if you're okay with not having a totally and completely seamless flow between hair and bangs (which isn't how natural hair works, unless you were going for a totally unbelievable look!)
>>
>>8796282
Use matte red ribbon around the top of the sock. i've always done this for my school uniform asuka. as long as it's matte and the seam of the ribbon is on your inner calf, you should be fine!
>>
>>8809357
I'll definitely look into bang clips, thanks anon!

Do you think a lacefront would look alright if I pulled it into a ponytail?
