I'd like to see the rest of this girl's portfolio. Hopefully she won't be the token "style wefts into cute small shapes and stick them on a wig" contestant this year.
Most of these look pretty promising. I'm looking forward to seeing what the contestants produce this time.
Yeah but last year's winner won by sticking shapes on top of a wig soooo....
well, to be fair, the manga version had more structured curls.
It's still pretty intricate, but it is suffering from hat/wig syndrome
Pretty much this. Ex-contestant here - the money is nonexistent relative to the time comitment, but the free wigs are nice and they basically kick your ass into making impressive things out of them. For what it's worth I like most of this year's lineup.
Wait, the bird, lacing, nest, braiding, and all the brown details are hair? Jesus christ that's amazing! At first I thought she totally cheated putting the focus on props, but the props are 80% wig fiber details!
This is all that's been posted for this year's contestants since the contest hasn't started yet. But there's some impressive photos in previous threads... pic related is Chibinischan from two years ago.
Sure, here you go. Like I said there's more in other threads and on their FB but these are some of my favorites. Pic related, also Chibinischan.
