Everything from wig caps, eyebrows, wig brushing/washing, and more. So I tried to do a General Makeup/Wig video that covered everything I usually talk about in my Cosplay Makeup 101 panel. I hope this helps on all the basics!

Shelia, for your Miku cosplays, do you use the same wig? I want to cosplay a few of Miku's outfits and I don't know if it would be a problem or not if I used the same wig, when Miku's hair changes shades like every other video. Especially in Project Diva.
Ehhhh it really depends on how drastically different it is. I mean, in most of the costumes I’ve done its the same color. But for instance, in Miku Append her hair is considerably lighter than my wig. But I still used it because I couldn’t be bothered buying a new one.
Honestly, unless her hair is a different style, I don’t use other wigs because it gets EXPENSIVE. There is always photoshop (which I used to make my blue wig seem green in my Meltdown Miku costume.)
Either way, Its all up to what you feel you want to do. If you want to— go for it! Its only that more accurate. And if you dont, then don’t stress on it. I don’t think its a big deal and I doubt anyone else will either.
Gotdang, that's fantabulous! I can never get such smooth, clean shapes. What kind of product did you use? I'm trying to find something that has enough give that I can work out it for a while before it becomes stiff, but not so soft I crush it when turning it over in my hands. Maybe I just need to stick to sewing.
Sculpy sounds like what you need!!! My favorite stuff (and what I used.)
Its a clay that is soft until you bake it. So mold and sculpt all you like and then bake to harden forever.
Sculpy is great for ornaments and stuff that need a bit of weight to them. SUPER-Sculpy is awesome for really stiff durable items, and ultralight Sculpy is awesome for stuff like jelwery or hair ornaments that need to be really light.
