Cut or ignore FRINGE stressyness
Post By Keyaral. 01/04/09, 02:46 pm

Hi world of helpfull cosplayers ^__^ Last minute woes are everywhere.

So my character is Shinku from Rosen maiden. (stabbeh for all the red velvet ><)

http://www.google.co.nz/search?hl=en&q=shinku+rozen+maiden&btnG=Google+Search&meta=&aq=0&oq=shinku+rozen

I have reasonable long blonde hair, however i also have a full grown out fringe.
Do people suggest cutting it short, or finding appropriate hair pieces etc? If so please advise what.

Thankyou ^__^

I don't think you have time to find appropriate hair pieces. D: WHERE TO FIND SUPER LONG RINGLETS is your problem.

Hmm. Same problem is there too. Fringe pieces are pretty hard to find in store, the only ones I've seen have been online.

I say get somebody you know is good with hair to cut it. I tried cutting my own fringe once. 8D It was a disaster.

cutting your own fringe isn't difficult at all, if you're not going for layers or a razored look. you need a mirror, sharp scissors and a comb to keep it straight, then you cut along the top of the comb while it's in your fringe. at least, that's how i cut mine alskdjflkd

Thankie people, that curl idea looks awesome.

I dont mind cutting, but am aware of the annoyence of growing it back out afterwards.

...I have a theory tha I've never tried...but is similar to the curly one. I've always wanted to try giving somebody a fake fring by just taking the front section of hair and twisting it into a knot on the crown of the head and then styling the last few inches into a fringe - I'm not sure how to make the knot look pretty, but if you're wearing a hat, who cares!

..I should confess I like playing with hair. sweatdrop

Yeah, I've tried combing hair from the back forward under a headband and it semi-worked. Anyway, I think the fringe is VITAL and that you should get it cut if you can't find a fringe hairpiece. I think I know a place in Auckland that sells wigs and I've seen finge-pieces there, but they could be expensive.

Thanks Static for coming over on the day of Armageddon and doing my hair
(and talking mel out of a break down,)

Auckland wigs are awesome. I ordered one for the ball and it arrived in three days and looked incredible
