Kairi Wig. by cupcake-rufflebutt Kairi Wig. by cupcake-rufflebutt
For a change I thought I might upload some of my previous cosplay progress collages. These were originally uploaded to my cosplay.com gallery while I was working on each costume, but now that said costume is finished, I find that I am only posting stylized photoshoot images of it here on DA. Sometimes it's nice to see close-up candids of the various bits and pieces of a costume without all the crazy poses and photoshopping. ^__^ I do also receive a fair number of questions about my costumes and wigs, so hopefully this will provide a few answers:

This is a wig I styled for Kairi from Kingdom Hearts, many years ago. When I realized the costume was simply "not to be," I sold the wig to another Kairi cosplayer. The wig was styled from a shoulder-length "wine red" wig, purchased from an eBay seller who is sadly no longer in business. I've never found a red quite like the one I used for this wig; it was an absolutely perfect match. I set the part with a blow dryer and cut in the basic style, then layered it a bit for a more natural look. This was actually the first wig I styled with a tapered back. [I remembering being quite determined to get the back right, since a lot of cosplayers favoured wigs in a bobbed style for Kairi, and her hair is really not bob-like at all. ^__^;] A little pomade to add texture and hold the bangs in place, and voila, Kairi wig! I also ought to mention that I'm wearing blue contacts, because every time I upload photos of me wearing them, I get questions. XD

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! <3

I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I urge you to read my photo descriptions! This is an old wig for a costume that fell through. ^__^;
