Judal/Judar Wig Tutorial by Malindachan Judal/Judar Wig Tutorial by Malindachan
As promised, here's a tutorial on how I made my Judal wig! After learning more about spray/expanding foam, I decided to give it a shot since it would be cost efficient and less messy than shaving down normal Styrofoam balls. This youtube video by Mogrymillian is a great intro to using spray/expanding foam! [link]

The awesome part was that it wasn't too heavy! It stayed on my head even before I added wig clips, though I did add some anyway in both the front and back just in case. It only started to feel heavy after I had been wearing it for a few hours.

I'll also go ahead and post photos from using insulation foam and upholstery foam, though I feel the expanding foam is my favorite so far. :)

How did you attach the string of balls to the nape of the wig? Did you use all of the hair in the rat tail to cover the balls or is some of it threaded through the balls along with the thread?

So this is a Vegas wig and the long clip ponytail, or a long weft from Arda-Wigs?

I'm thinking about doing a judal cosplay and I like your wig a lot more than what I can buy online. So, don't mind me asking... how long was the clip on ponytail that you got?

Fantastic tutorial! (I was the one who asked about a Jasmine wig tutorial on the Arda Wigs forum). This was so helpful!  Thank you!  :)

I get a cool discount for working at the company, but if I was a normal customer, wig materials would have only been $50.

It is amazing how much work you put into this wig, and the results really show! It looks perfect!
