Yami Yugi Wig Tutorial by Malindachan Yami Yugi Wig Tutorial by Malindachan
Hope this is helpful! This tutorial also works great with Yugi wigs and other crazy styles like DBZ characters too! Yugi's just got different bangs, and with Dragon Ball wigs you can use the same process for the spikes, but then make the hairline out of extra wefts (See this tutorial here for hairlines: [link] ).

This is the wig base I used: [link]
It's pretty awesome since the wefts in the back are sewn upwards, and it's super thick.

And here's where you can get wefts: [link]

I was wondering if I could get some tips on how to make this because I want to be Yami at Kami con next year ^^ I wanted to be him this year but I never got the wig started ;P

Now I start to wonder how the hair in the anime will look down.

>.> Maybe he has cones! Maybe just a lot of hair .m.

ChaseTheDarkness23 Featured By Owner May 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm looking over this, not thinking about doing this for Yami Yugi, but maybe for someone else. I'm thinking about trying this on a Pikachu Gijinka wig. Do you think it would work or should I try going about it a different way? I'm just trying to get a completely natural look instead of using a headband and fabric ears. Talk about laaaaame XD
jotaro-shima Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
OMG this is the best. I plan to go as SSJ Goku from DBZ in the future and this would work great. Thank you for posting this.

Umbreon-art Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Also, how many wefts do you recommend buying?
Umbreon-art Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Do you have any other wig suggestions? The one you mentioned is out of stock.
XeroNecross Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I just realized how tough a time a REAL Yugi Moto would have doing his hair... I mean I know he's a cartoon character and all, but if he were real... Not only would shampoo companies be rick but the hair gel companies would be in paradise!
keniakittykat Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013
Awesome! Seriously the best I've seen so far. This tutorial would be very useful for interested cosplayers... Too bad I have no use for it, because it looks fun to make! ^^
MechanicalPenguin Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
I can't believe I missed seeing you at Katsucon. As far as I knew, I was the only YamiYugi there! =D

Great wig. Must have been annoying to work with cones and hair though. I just used hair.
Akarui-Sakura Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my...well wow! You're probably one of the only people I've seen who can pull Yami off! You did an awesome job here! :clap:
Tatlifly Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
...So it IS possible to wear 1:1 Yami hair and still look good. I always thought this character is just not meant to be cosplayed without modifying his hair a lot because it looks so unnatural. Well, I guess I must believe my own eyes. : D Many thanks for the tutorial, this was really helpful! Yami's been on my cosplay list awhile but I had no idea where to start with his hair

Also, I find it unbelievable that this can be done with just one package of wefts.
