So…Anora update! The construction is basically done, so now it’s just finish modifying the blouse (sew on the second cuff, add the collar and trim, detail the cuffs), finish the belt/obi/corset…thing (get fasteners, detail), and…figure out how to style the wig. I’m quite poor at styling my own hair (which is why I usually keep it short), and this un-leveled skill set also affects any hair-like substance. However, I at least did learn from my first attempt that trying to style it on the wig stand results in Leia-esque buns. The second attempt was more accurate in placement, but I’m not comfortable with how secure it is, and I’m going to keep trying to improve the look of it. In the meantime, I’m going to be buying a lot more bobby pins.
I’ll get the pictures of the wig let down on here eventually, because VS insists it makes me look like Cercei, but they are currently on his external hard drive, so…later. I realize I went with a slightly more golden tone than Anora’s hair, but really it’s worth it…lighter blonde wigs make me look jaundiced ^^;; But yes, tomorrow…buy all the hair pins!
Anora is coming along crazy great! I am very excited for PAX :D. I enjoy the two separate trials on display simultaneously on the wig - the one on the left (er, your right) definitely nails it. Hopefully I will get my Cole wig soon so I can get some pics up too!
I love it bb! Also totally going for the left one—the low bun is definitely the right look :D
