Sunday Special ;D WIG HEAD TUTORIAL!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 12, 2012, 11:58 AM






Yo!

Okay. It's Sunday. But I've promised to provide you with some new tutorial today also! *grin*

SO! HOW 'BOUT A WIG HEAD TUTORIAL ;D ESPECIALLY FOR YOU MY BIG HEADED FRIENDS!

Actually... I just hate all the wig heads for sale. My head size is 62cm. So you can believe how well those 55cm wig heads fit me.
I even have some problems with all the wigs! I always have to cut off all the adjustable size wraps! ;__; And even then they are too small for me!
Well, my solution for the problem is this!

With only 10 euros! Yeah, around 15 dollars you can make your OWN wig head.
Which is exactly the same shape as your own head.

So you can actually style your wig only with this! No need to put it on and cut trough a mirror anymore! ^^
WAA!~

We all have a different face. Eyes, nose, lips. They are all in different places!
That's why I really recommend to make your own wig head. To get the best results in wig styling!~

Here ya go!

First! You need a packet of straws, a packet of cling film and one whole packet of plaster of Paris (wrap type) (one whole packet is 5 x 7-10cm x2m or something = around two wig heads)

Staws in your mouth, wrap a few meter of cling film around your head! And then you need a friend...
Let your friend wrap all the wet plaster of Paris's wraps around your head. Around two layers everywhere.
Press it with your fingers to achieve the exact shape of your own head.

You won't be seeing anything, so your friend have to do most of the job. Don't panic! You can breath trough the straws ;D (Maybe, if your friend wont' stuck 'em with chewing gum or something..)

Okay! After that! You will look like this! Wandering around the house!

Friend laughing at you. Taking some photos. Yeah, nice. Well, let's continue! Don't fall down and hit your head though.

Last thing in this very beginner's tutorial is, that you have to let your friend cut a small line (maybe 5-15cm) in the back of your neck.
That's how you can take the mask of. After you have managed to take it off, put some extra wraps of plaster of Paris on it, to fix it.
Then just let it dry over the night!

Yai!

AND THAT'S IT ! :D

A 100% ACCURATE WIG HEAD FOR YOU! :)
You can put some layer of paint or something on it if you want!
Totally worth the time!

Total time: 30-60min (+ drying one night)
Total cost = 10 euros (15 dollars)

WOOOHHOOH!

Thanks! Any questions? Just hit me with 'em!

Wow, that seems like it would be very useful O,o I need to make something like this but I would like to make it for my face so that I can make masks fit expecially for my face, cuz well XD everyone's faces are different and I'm a perfectionist so I'd rather make my own masks rather than having my friends make the mask while I'm wearing something over my face. XD;;
