Dr. Fudo wig progress - edit by Malindachan Dr. Fudo wig progress - edit by Malindachan
Edit: finished!

Took a different approach with this wig compared to what I did with Yusei.

Yugioh hair is so weird. A style at one angle does not stay consistent with all other angles. Spikes will look like they jut out to the sides when we see the front of a character, but then will go straight back or forward when the view changes to a profile shot. Doing something in-between still won't look 100% accurate at all angles, so I usually have to pick and choose.

My Yusei wig is best seen from a 3/4 view or profile angle, but I decided to try making Dr. Fudo's hair as if it's meant to be seen from a frontal view (or something close). I think I prefer the way my Yusei wig looks the best, but I like how this one turned out too regardless :3

I still do maintenance on my wig from time-to-time to keep the spikes together, but it also sometimes depends on how you're styling the spikes (if you overload it with too much hairspray, it could weigh the spikes down. use a strong hairspray sparingly and a blowdryer to help them dry faster)

So to do spikes with aquanet you tie the length of the spike off and then spray it

:iconmalindachan:
Malindachan Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
sometimes I do, but sometimes I go ahead and trim the spikes before I spray them. the hair ties are there for keeping the hair separated so I know in advance that I have enough to work with.

You are a hair master! I never thought how difficult it must be transfering a 2D hair style that changes from angle to angle, and probably season to season to a 3D model that need to look good from all angles. Genius!

I know what you mean; it's like Yugioh characters wake up in the morning and think to themselves:
"Hmm~, maybe I can flip it for the day."
Cosplayers' worst nightmare when you feel you have to choose, but it's worth it and pretty funny. XDD

what do you mean by "keep it up"? if you mean the spikes, I spray them with aqua net hairspray and hold them in place while drying them with a hairdryer.

I guess it varies based on opinion. with pigtails, you can make the spikes more dementional since hairpins flatten them more.
However, making dementional spikes is hard and takes a lot more time because hairspray will cause the fibers to stick together and take away some of its volume.

xD So does this pigtail-like method work better than holding them back, or whatever, like you did with the Yusei wig?

yea, I almost killed myself last year when I was working on Jack because I was trying so hard to make it look accurate from all angles. It's pretty tough sometimes, but I think you did a fantastic job as always :)

After your marvelous cosplays it looks really good....(Even thought LittleKuriboh on youtube told me it sucked D:)

What kind of hairspray did you use on your wigs? I have this TRESemme' "Tres Two-Extra Hold" stuff....Will that work?

well, I felt like my first styling of my Yusei wig was a bit lazy XD
Since then, I've combed out the spikes and resprayed them, so they now look less flat and stringy.
