Yo guys, here it finally is (and it's about damn time!) - My Nui Harime Wig tutorial! I hope you enjoy, and I hope this is useful! Don't hesitate to ask any questions about this, and definitely let me see your WIPs/final wigs!
Thank you so much for creating this, I want to cosplay Nui and her hair just looked so intimidating. Your tutorial gives me hope that I can pull it off! Quick question though, does the headband go on top of the base wig or underneath it? I wasn't sure from your instructions. Unsure how well it would/does hide if it went on top but not sure if it'd even be possible to put it underneath. Thanks!
It's on top in mine, I just painted the band a yellow to match my wig, and I pull the hairs over it. If you want to have the headband underneath, you should use a thicket headband. Then, you can put a screw into the headband and screw each ponytail onto it. I've never done this before, but it's similar to what people to to attach horns to their heads invisibly for cosplay ^_^ Good luck, I'm glad this was helpful!
This tutorial is great!! I love how you have included other tutorials etc within yours and references and lots of good images~ If I hadn't of found this i dont think i would of braved making my own Nui wig but I did and I thankyou for it <3 (Id also love you alot if maybe you could check out my finished product and give me some pointers?)
Ok, I just had to come and comment here - since Nui's first appearance I was totz like "OMG I NEED TO COSPLAY THIS", but as I kept watching all I could see was an impossible wig to bring to real life... I mean, I thought Tomoe Mami's one was hard? LOL! So I just had to put her on my little box of "I-can-only-dream" cosplays... Then today I foound your tutorial and now this is my next year's n.1 project YAY *Q* THNX SO MUCH!
You're so welcome, I'm glad it's of use! Haha, not at all! I'm flattered you think my cosplay is so good :3 And you're too sweet~! Oh wow! She literally has the top portion of Nui's hair! XDD Yeah, the curls are a giant pain, so you luck out quite a bit there :3
This is freaking amazing! I want to cosplay her myself, but didn't know were to even beging when it came to the wig! When I saw your cosplay on DA, I was like how did she make that!! And a couple of weeks later, you gave us a tutorial! Amazing! You do amazing work, keep up the great work!
