For Tsubaki Nakatsukasa's wig, should I buy a long black wig, stub and style it, or should I get an already stubbed ponytail wig that isn't as long?

If I were making a Tsubaki wig, I’d personally stub and style it myself to make it as accurate as possible.

If it’s your first time stubbing a wig and you’re nervous about ruining a high-quality wig, now’s the perfect season to stock up on cheap party wigs from your local Halloween store! You can use those to practice on before stubbing the actual wig you’re using for your costume.

Have you ever lost heart in the middle of making a cosplay? When you're in between "I don't want to do this" and "it's 60% done come on just finish it"...but there are still other cosplays you want to work on way more???...

Literally my relationship with my Sheriff Caitlyn costume. Every time I work through one problem, I run into three more. It’s really disheartening, but I’ve come this far with it, so it’d be a waste to just give up now. I’ve been working on it for over a year and a half… but it’ll get done……. eventually……..

I looked through your resources tag and didn't see one, so I thought I'd ask. Do you have any tutorials you'd recommend for custom draping a jacket like your Batgirl 2014 one?

I didn’t drape my jacket, since it’s a very structured garment and required more precise patterning. I have a post with tutorials on pattern drafting (as well as a guide to draping) here!

I don't know why but in your fawn cosplay selfies you look like Taylor Swift?

Oh gosh! Haha, I’m not sure I see it and I think Courtney looks way more like Taylor Swift than I ever could hope to, but thank you nonetheless! (。´∀`)ノ

Some Fawn selfies from a local farm event I volunteered at today. (Of course, minus the wings because I hadn’t put them on yet, and with a leotard because it was so cold!) I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed cosplaying as Fawn until finally putting on the new outfit of hers I recently finished - it was such a great feeling to be her again!

Hello I have I quick question. I saw you did a sailor moon cosplay, and I was wandering where your sailor moon got her wig. I recently ordered one and it came in. And it's too small for me, I can see a lot of hair in the back even with two wig caps on. Did she make hers or did she buy it from some where?

Try asking Larina herself! :D

I know you were putting together a batgirl cosplay, did you ever finish it? If so where did you get the jacket or how did you make it?

I’m currently working on my Batgirl 2014 costume - you can see progress photos on my Instagram! So far for the jacket, I custom-drafted a pattern and have sewn the lining and outer shell, along with inserting the bat emblem to the front panels. I’m using 2-way stretch pleather for the purple and a thick non-stretch pleather for the emblem.
