Frequently asked Questions!

Hello all! :) For a while now it's been really difficult for me to be super active on DA in regards to answering all questions I get via notes and comments.

-If you're curious if I do commissions, I'm sorry to say that I don't take commissions anymore. I work a full time job now, so I just don't have the extra free time that I used to (it's hard enough to get my own personal projects done lol).

-If you have a wig-related question, please just shoot me an email at
At Arda-wigs, it's actually part of my job to give advice and wig suggestions to customers, so if you ask me there, I'll be happy to answer you (and pretty quickly!) in comparison to here. It's something I get paid to do, so I'm less inclined to answer the same kind of questions off the clock here, haha. XD

-If you have a non-wig question related to how I did something on a particular costume, lately I've been trying to add all that information into the description of at least one of the photos of that costume. Just browse through some of the different photos until you find it (it's usually in the first or second photo submission of that costume), or you might find a link to the costume construction information via another photo. If you still can't find what you're looking for, feel free to ask via a note.



Edit: Sorry for the delay! I was out of town the past week, but I have returned and uploaded 4 more costumes! :D

Hey all! So two things!
One is that I'm moving to a bigger apartment soon! (whoo hoo!) 
Second thing is that we've been saving up to FINALLY visit Japan in the Spring! I'll spare you guys the details, but in a nutshell, the move is hurting our savings account a bit more than we anticipated. ;A;

So each day this week Kyle and I will be putting up two of my older costumes for sale! Most of these have only been worn a couple times and are still in great condition. I'm having a real hard time parting with some of them because they took a lot of hard work and have some great memories attached to them, so I do hope you guys check them out and help me find a good home for them!

Today (Tuesday) We put up 4 costumes! Here are the ebay listings:

Princess Judai (Dress only; hoop skirt and wig not included!)…

Animefest 2009: Princess Judai by Malindachan

All costumes past this point have been sold!

Wednesday we put up my older Judai and Yusei items! Don't worry, this doesn't mean I won't be cosplaying these characters anymore; I still have my newest wigs and jackets for both Judai and Yusei, though the older ones are hard to part with because they hold a lot of good memories!

I will update this journal each evening with more costumes!
I'm sure a lot of you guys want to know what else will be for sale, so here's a list of upcoming sales:
Team Satisfaction Uniform 
Undercover!Yusei "Daniel" uniform
Wallmarket Cloud Dress
Halloween Town Sora
Older Aqua wig
Ouran High School uniform

If there's a costume of mine you like that is not listed, please DON'T ask if I will be selling it. I'm still keeping a few of my favorites, and the costumes I plan to wear again soon. :)

I have pieces from others I will also be selling, though I will list them as I find them in storage. 
Many of the costumes listed might not include wigs or pieces that were re-used in other costumes (like boots, pants, or shirts). I will make note of it within the listings when they're posted.

I will warn you guys that I'm pretty tiny, so if you want to buy these costumes to wear the entire thing, they will not fit if you are larger than a small (and all sales are final; no returns)!

Armed with a can of hairspray as her weapon of choice, Malindachan is all about her wigs. She taught herself to style wigs so she could cosplay her favorite overly-spikey-haired YU-GI-OH! characters, and eventually this led to her habit of selecting characters based on who's hair looked the most ridiculous. As a gamer Malinda loves to play RPGs, her favorites being Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Zelda, and the Tales series. Other favorite things include One Piece, animated films, magical girls, sweets, nostalgic things, and owls.

Encouraged to pursue her artistic talents, she earned a Bachelor’s in Art with a concentration in 3D Computer Animation. She feels she can best exercise her range of abilities through cosplay. She learned to sew at a young age, and other than her Jigglypuff costume attempt at age 11, she started making her own costumes in 2004 and actively cosplaying in 2007.

If I could get some advice on cosplay, it'd be much appreciated. I am planning a cosplay of Delphox gijinka original design. In my design the dress fades from white(top) to redish brown. How can I achieve this look on fabric? Would bleach dyeing work best? Any suggestions would be of great help. 
Thank you
