PROGRESS: Zelda Wig by Dye-Another-Day PROGRESS: Zelda Wig by Dye-Another-Day
The final result of about 12 hours labor, my Twilight Princess Zelda wig (minus accessories, clearly).

Take: one le tigre long from Arda Wigs in Warm Light brown, two packs of their long wefts in the same, and two packs of loose extensions in 613 (platinum).

There is no batting or filler in this wig- it's all hair. It's got to weigh five pounds. I realize you can't see the braid from the angle, but I promise you it's there! I left it a little longer than is strictly accurate, because I like the look, plus I spend so damn long sewing in all that hair.

The platinum extensions were hand-tied into both the additional wefts, and the ones that were in the wig to begin with. Almost no one does the highlights present in the render, but I absolutely love the look, so I added them!

The rest of the outfit has barely been started, but I still plan to have her wearable (if not beaded, as she will ultimately be) for NYCC. Look for me there!

Also, yes, the wig is tipping back. I could only find two bobby pins at the time. I bought more, as well as small combs to actually sew into the wig itself.

Awesome job Luna! I commend you for having the patience to sew in all of those wefts.

Wow! It looks fantastic! I bought the same wig to make the same Princess Zelda hairstyle a while back, and though I added some wefts, I never managed to make the "side braids" that beautifully thick! How did you manage that?

Each braid is half a pack of extensions, folded up and sewn into the wig above the ear flap bits. I used those extras, plus enough from the surrounding areas to cover up the part where I sewed them in. Hope that helps!
