Lightning wig commission by Malindachan Lightning wig commission by Malindachan
A wig commission for friend :iconhachiko77:
photo on the right was taken in front of a mirror, so I flipped it.

Was a more difficult wig to figure out because Lightning's hair is so different in every reference shot I find (some shots it's more dramatically spiked, and some shots have a more soft natural style). I like spiking, and that's what Hachi wanted me to do, so that's what I did XD

The wig base was a Lightning wig from Ebay, and it was overall pretty nice. I kinda wish it had just a little more volume on the top, but I think I did ok for what it had.

Final Fantasy XIII is (c) Square Enix

it looks really good.
how do you do the spikes?
when I do that with a wig the spikes either don`t keep their form or they don`t stand up like that no matter what I do
