a lot of these wigs are quite random. it looks just like adding complex stuff together without thinking about how it fits together. Only the octopus and the queen have a creative theme and you don't have to look twice to get what the photos show
>>8833492 All that braiding is really cool, but those blunt ends are bugging me. Would look a lot better if them were thinned out a bit to match the ponytail. >>8833495 My favorite by far. Actually looks like it'd be executable with real hair, is simple yet effective, and has a great, clean shape to it. Loving all the back curls. >>8833497 >>8833514 These designs are just clusterfucks. I don't even know what's going on in them or what they're trying to invoke other than "weird demon monster thing from a final fantasy game". The second one is a lot cleaner though, so I see it surviving better. The hoops are neat. >>8833509 Worst by far. Ugly and boring design with dumb fake fruit from Michaels attached to it for no reason. Lame. >>8833510 Great parting and undercut. The design is pretty interesting, but not too complex that it becomes a mess like some of the other designs. Kinda reminds me of Dragon Age stuff mixed with just enough JRPG flair to make it pop. Good stuff. >>8833517 Ugly makeup on the model aside, it's alright. Parting and braids look cool, but I don't really get the point of the weaved bits on the side. They seem out of place. >>8833523 Really fucking cool. Loses points for blunt ends (god why did she and OP do that), but those curls and that height are fucking nuts and deserve to be recognized.
Arda is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for contestants these days. Looks like half the girls don't even know how to alter a Jeannie to make it actually fit their head. I don't give a shit how many stupid shapes you can make with clear-drying caulk; wearing a ponytail wig over your ears because the cap is too big shows a lack of fundamental understanding on how wigs work. This is the equivalent of a cosplay contest where half the contestants are wearing ill-fitting ebay costumes that they added a bunch of trim and jewels to. What a fucking mess.
>>8833492 I really like how they did the braiding job on this one and the overall shape of the wig. They should aim for using less photos next time. The side with the small braids could have been done cleaner though. >>8833495 I love the simplicity of this one and how it fits her head. The theme is pretty clear, but I think how simple it is is what will kill it's score. >>8833497 This one just feels really messy. They were trying out so many techniques, it all kinds of just collides together. The pictures they used are also really busy so it takes away from showcasing the wig. >>8833509 Clear idea, but the wig is very obviously ill-fitting. I also don't like that they used so much fruit. They should've made the leaves out of hair. >>8833510 I like the construction of this one the best. It's very clean and I like the style. I don't like the bird at the end of the tail though, it's too bulky. Awesome undercut. Could used better lighting for their photos. >>8833514 Another one that could've done so well if it weren't so mashed up. Too many things going on. Everything looks clean and constructed well, but the overall design wasn't very well thought out. With such a complex looking wig, they should have used less photos for showing it off. The number of photos just adds to the messy feel. >>8833517 I don't understand why they styled it down since it's a pony tail wig. They'll probably lose major points for that. I can see that they wefted the two colors together in the base wig, but it just comes off as a really simple design, but also kind of messy looking. These contestants should use less space for show casing their costume instead of their wig. >>8833523 One of my favorites, tied with the braided one and the bird one. The design was really well thought out and I've never seen anything like that technique they used for the octopus. The only thing is that close up, it doesn't look very clean. They should have spent more time on smoothing out the hair.
>>8833523 Wow, this one's definitely my favourite! I'm getting a Queen Amidala vibe from her - I love how architectural and swoopy and aesthetically pleasing the swirls are, and how they're well-balanced with symmetry in other places.
I agree that this one and the queen one have the most cohesive and well-thought-out designs, but Artflower kind of soured the whole "make something out of wig fibre and slap it on" in the last IW.
>>8833509 The cornucopia is a cool idea, but her execution is lacking. She didn't consider the 3 dimensional geometry of the wig, and how it would look from different angles, so now it looks pretty cool from like two angles and like shit from anywhere else.
>>8833920 "No reason" as in there's no reason for her to use shitty cheap plastic fruits when the contest is about wig styling, not gluing random bobbles and bits to your head and calling it a day. And to be honest it doesn't really look like a great cornucopia anyway. It's not a twisted spiral like they usually look like. Nor does it include fall vegetables, which are often the most present in cornucopias since they're generally used for invoking the season, at least in the US. She used summer fruits for a fall theme. Why?
>>8833509 Would've been better if it wasn't that flat red colour as a base and the fruit was made of hair like everyone else did for their entry. The only thing I like about it is the horn/cone shape in the back.
>>8834105 >Artflower kind of soured the whole "make something out of wig fibre and slap it on" in the last IW. Very much this, but at the same time I can't blame any of the people who try that tactic this year. The same song and dance won Artflower top points regardless of how boring her overall design was, so the new contestants probably see it as a sure fire way to earn points. A good chunk of the entrants made an object out of hair this round, so I'm guessing we'll see a lot of this in future rounds too.
>>8833620 >Loses points for blunt ends (god why did she and OP do that) Blunt ends are definitely present in some hairstyles - biggest example that comes to mind is hime cuts. The blunt ends kind of remind me of little tassels too - seeing as how she left certain ends blunt and others more tapered I think this was done on purpose - stylistically I don't think it's a bad choice at all.
>>8833495 Jak cosplay released a progress video and DESU I take back everything I said earlier about this being the stylist to beat. She used almost no techniques, the hair is just pulled back and curled int place with hot glue, and the most impressive piece - the crown - isn't actually covered in hair. I admit that I thought the red parts were hair too which is why I was impressed, but it looks like all of the foam is visible up close except for a few yellow braids. I hope Arda doesn't give this first place just because it's pretty.
>>8837829 It doesn't really bother me, provided that's not all the techniques they use. I think a lot of people are stressing about using as many techniques in one wig as possible in an attempt to prove themselves, which just cause overstyled and awkward looking wigs. Jak is still one of the best in this round when it comes to making a good looking wig, but if that's the only thing they can do I'll get annoyed later.
I feel like the contestants this year are trying a lot harder than last year's.... but at the same time there isn't as much creativity (just weird kitchen sink designs). I wonder if this will change in upcoming rounds.
