Making of the Cloud Wig by Malindachan Making of the Cloud Wig by Malindachan
I took some photo documentation of my Cloud wig while I was working on it, and I figured I'd share to show the process to those who were curious. It's not really a super detailed tutorial, but I added a bunch of information to fill in what I didn't capture with my camera.

Wig styled by me, using 2 Magnum (color 81) wig bases from Arda-wigs.com

Cloud Strife & Final Fantasy VII are (c) Squaresoft/Squeenix

I always wondered how cosplayers achieved those perfect spikes and now I know- I had no idea they used glue! This is a fantastic tutorial, thanks!

That sounds very unlikely from the pattern she's reblogged BUT it's basically the same ideal!
You'll need a longer wig of the right colour and the right styling equipment! Look at other Madara cosplayers to see how they've gone with it, and maybe even figurines to reference from!

Good luck!

I was looking at a Magnum for making a Sora wig... But I've heard a Jareth might be better.
What do you recommend?

I've got one question: Is this wig washable? aka after it gets crushed/packed/kept aside, could you still get it back to this style? I'm having a lot of trouble keeping my spikes in place with just hairspray, but I dislike using glue and other permanent things on the wig, as this would be hard for me to store after a con. I was under the impression that if you style the ends with glue, it would be hard to get it to spike properly if it gets crushed during transportation/packing.

It's a beautiful wig, a beautiful color, and fantastic result. I really do love your wig stylings. :)

Some shedding may occur if you aren't careful with the ends of the hair wefts. #CutWithCaution
