This needs to be reblogged more, because its a neat trick to lighten a wig, though I’m not sure how well it would work on other tones? Worth trying!
The ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ Project
There is a stigma in the cosplay community that most cosplayers would prefer to hide the tactics used in order to make a particular cosplay. This project is dedicated to raising awareness for those cosplayers who are open to being asked questions and more than willing to help those in need. In short, you are an ‘Open Book’ full of information for all who seek it.
The badges above represent some of the most general topics of cosplay craftsmanship, including wig work, tailoring or sewing, prop making, and armor making. This does not mean that you claim to be a master of this or that type. It is simply to say you feel confident enough to answer questions on these subjects and in the event you don’t know, you’re good at re-directing them to someone who might know better.
By posting one of these badges, you are openly saying that you are more than welcome to take questions from cosplayers on your craftsmanship tactics and workings. Of course this in turn means that asking cosplayers should also know to credit and thank those that helped them out.
Click here if you’d like to download these badges for your own use. Feel free to put them on your page, resize them, put them on backgrounds, ect. Post them however you please.
If you do use these badges, please link back to this post so people can learn more about what an ‘Open Book Cosplayer’ is.
Also utilize the tag Open Book Cosplayer so people can find cosplayers to ask!
Thank you Vicious! This is brilliant and a very great way to encourage others to not be afraid to ask questions. :D
I am also an open book, followers. Feel free to pm or email me any questions toward my cosplays, methods, materials, or anything cosplay related really. I’d be more than happy to share my good, bad and best experiences.I will do my best to explain all that I have learned so you can benefit <3

(also all of my current tutorial posts are tagged “tutorial” if you’re looking for them)
We will be adding these to the blog soon!!!
Adding a “lace front” the quick(ish) and (not really) dirty way. Featuring Levi because I hate this wig’s hairline with a passion.
Details in the captions, but basically I took the extra lace from a cheap eBay lace front wig (because swiss lace is waaaay expensive and I definitely don’t need it by the yard), glued it to the inside of the wig, and started stabbing tufts of extension hair through the lace. I hotglued it totally flat and just kept building. I used the same method to add the purple to my Eridan wig.
Hope that helps a little! Now for a trim…
OMGHAH WHAT!? ADDING A LACE FRONT TO A NON LACE FRONT WIG!???
