Chibiusa Wig Commission by red-cluster Chibiusa Wig Commission by red-cluster
Character: Chibiusa from Sailor Moon.
Base wig used: 2 base wigs for Anya Alstreim from Ayanamisatoru.
Tools used: Pillow filling, clear plastic food wrap, masking tape, fabric paints, Fabri-Tac glue, hot glue.
Styling Products: Gatsby moving rubber(pink), Aquanet hairspray, Got2B freezing spray, Got2B Spiking Glue.

This wig was such an experiment to me. It was my first time making buns like these. I think most people use foam for the base, but I wanted to try using a different material. I used pillow filler to shape into a ball, wrapped it with the food wrap, and then secured it with masking tape all over the form. I was able to get the shape I wanted without having to cut and sand down a foamcore which would have been messy and time-consuming.
The base wigs I used to make this wig actually had hair clips in them for the ponytails. But I took the clips out and use the wefts for the buns and the hair on the side. The side hair would not be full enough if I just attach them straight onto the wig. So, I used the similar method with how I made the buns, and then hot glue the hair on top of the base form.

Here is a progress pic that probably can explain much better than me XD : [link]

for this wig did you use the extra wefts from the extra base wig you had? or just from the ponytail pieces?
Reply
:iconred-cluster:
red-cluster Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011
The extra base wig was cut in half and covered each side of the big pigtails. And I also use the leftover wefts for the ponytails to add to it.

Chibi-Usa's wig is probably the hardest to do, manage and pull off correctly. A lot of people get the color/shade of pink wrong, let the pigtails portions just hang straight or they look like huge puff balls. THIS is amazing and I'd say about 95% perfect. I only leave out 5% because the odango are just a bit too big, and bit square-topped rather than pointed but, hey, those things are hard to get right and I know whoever you made this for is going to be more than ecstatic. ^^

red-cluster Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2011
Thank you very much. ^^ I think the odango was a bit too big too. I didn't estimate the size after I cover it with hair correctly. But it still works overall.

this is beautiful!

I do have a question though, i'm starting a chibi usa wig and i'm working on the buns and I wanted to wrap them kinda like you did, but where did you start "wrapping" them? at the top?
Reply
:iconred-cluster:
red-cluster Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011
Thanks! I start from the bottom. But when I wrap the weft of hair, the end tip is at the bottom, but the other tip ends up near the top, because I kinda wrap it 45 degrees angle.
