Good morning Anon!
This is the second time I get this question this weekend! And the fourth time I answer it in all.
A few months ago I even posted a link to the ebay seller, didn’t tag the ask tho, but you can find it by googling “treskift remus wig”.
And I stand by what I said then, if you want the perfect wig for your cosplay search for it on ebay and scroll scroll scroll though hundreds of pages until you find just *the one*. Because that’s how it’s really done, and you may even find a wig you think is more fitting than the one I have!
I deliberately chose a darker one than I would have preferred for Remus because I have black eye brows. A lighter wig would have looked weird on me, but maybe not on you!
What I’m trying to say is when cosplaying you should try and build the character from yourself. Find a wig that matches your skin type and brows, wear clothes that actually fit your body rather than the character!
It gives a much better overall impression and it will be more comfortable, trust me^^
Good day dear Anon! Like all my other wigs, I bought it from ebay! Through my ebay purchase history I can see that it’s this one.
A good tip for finding just the right wig for your cosplay:
Go to ebay, search specifically what you’re looking for (like; “short light brown blonde wig” for my Remus wig), then browse though hundreds of pages of wigs. Because that’s how it’s done. Literally. Every cosplayer I know does this.
Thank you! :D
I will not make a tutorial on how to make them, because I do them slightly different every time depending on what mood I’m in XD I also don’t use the “traditional” way in colouring them. Because I’m poor/weird I use regular watercolours and/or acrylic paint (depending if it’s just scars or actual wounds like this) which are not made to be used on skin. But whatever.
Basically I use a product called Tuplast to shape the scars.
It’s fairly easy to work with even though it has quite a strong smell… When it’s applied and properly shaped and dried I cover it with with foundation and watercolours.
Sometimes I spray my face with hairspray afterwards, because I have this idea that it’ll stay in shape longer if I do so. I have not yet seen any proof of this though.
I would also recommend to just paint the scars with watercolours at first, to make out where they look best on your face. My design of them isn’t really canon I guess, but I’ve figured out where I’d be most likely to scratch my face if I had claws, as well being able to eat and drink with the make up on. It’s a creative process! 8D
I hope this made some sense..?
