Farore's wig is almost done now!
What's missing: styling the base wig and attaching ths braids around the buns 🍏🍏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

First and second try at wrapping the wefts around the styrofoam balls & how I decided to attach them to the wig. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
About the buns: I used sytrofoam balls and carved the bottom so they would sit flat on the head. I also carved the top, because if you wrap long wefts around them a few times, the top gets extra thick because that's where all strands go over. So I carved the tops flat and they turned out round because of the bulk of hair 😆👌 otherwise the tops would be more pointy.
Then I thankfully remembered to carve a hole a the bottom side for some braids I wanted to have hanging down sailormoon style from the buns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After that I started gluing the wefts.. I bought two ponytail clips and gutted one of them, that alone took over an hour and a lot of wefts were lost due to "fuck this, I don't have the nerves anymore to comb that shit out!!!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For gluing I carefully used hotglue. The process what kinda learing by doing and hard to describe in text, but feel free to ask me in person or request a tutorial if you're interested! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most tutorials I found showed hard core gluing the buns to the wig, but I absolutely did not want to do that, so I had to find a acceptable way of securing them to the wig non-permanently. They are not very heavy, so in the end I chose to use a combination of snap buttons and wig clips attached to green pleather. When covered by the braids, it looks fine from all sides 😄❤ I'll have to test the whole wig sometime this week tho, just to be sure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that's it.. Oh, and I used three 100cm long, 10cm wide wefts per bun. I used half a weft extra on the first bun later on to save it a little bit. You see the "before" picture in pic 3 and the after" n pic 2 😆🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
