Kaito Tenjo Wig by Malindachan Kaito Tenjo Wig by Malindachan
I'll hopefully get some photos of the full costume at Acen next weekend, but for now here is a preview of sorts :3

Much thanks to :iconprettykitty: for creating a tutorial for resizing Jeannie/Malinda wigs. I was stuck for a long time because the ideas I had in my head were overly complicated and not guaranteed to work. XD

When I see Yu-Gi-Oh hairstyles, I think, "Why the hell do they do such crazy unrealistic hairstyles like this?!"  It's so that awesome people like you can make some utterly bad-ass wigs! This is super awesome!
I'll be trying a similar approach with my Pearl wig from Steven Universe. I hope I can make it as good as this. Thanks for the tutorial!

You could either add additional spike shapes to your main spike or construct separate smaller spikes like in my Yami Yugi tutorial. :)

This tutorial and the Zack one are going to be my best friends for the next couple of days. I'm working on a celebi wig (So a curved acorn head) and had initially found the zack one for the hairline. But you having done this makes me feel much better on how i'm going to tackle this acorn! What a fantastic tutorial and always thank you for posting these. Your wigs are fantastic, and to see you working on them really helps someone like me try to wrap my brain around how to approach something like this. Good work!

Oh my gosh... that's just amazing... I've seen your other wigs and I swear every one I look at my draw drops further to the floor in amazement. Then just as I'm thinking you couldn't get any more awesome I see you're cosplaying Kaito and I just explode. And you did such a perfect job on this! I'm hoping to construct a Yuma wig for myself actually. Do you have any tips on how I should go about it? Either way I know your wig tutorials are all going to be extremely helpful to me! Keep on being awesome~

Great work! You wigs look so neat! I've used your tutorial for my Yusei wig, and it really helped a lot even though I had to opt for different materials and the wig I used definitely wasn't perfect for it. Also, my fabricglue does dry clear but it makes lighter coloured wigs considerably darker still. Guess I should keep looking for better >_<

Either way, this one could also be useful! You never know what kinda wigs you'll end up making xD Thanks for this!
