wig has been ordered.
adventures of a novice cosplayer and a catalogue of her struggles. aka lets try this and see if it works after doing two weeks of research on it.
Let’s break this down by section.
- For a mohawk, many people suggest cutting down a wig to the length that you want it at and then spirit gumming or sewing it onto the bald cap. Then it mostly requires makeup from then on!
- I read that Ben Nye takes pretty well to bald caps, so I’d recommend using that to paint your bald cap with. For Flame Prince, you’ll want to make the bald cap yellow! Here’s a really nice tutorial on blending in the bald cap with makeup.
- Here’s a tutorial in Japanese that shows how to custom make a mohawk wig! Despite being in Japanese, the pictures show very clearly what you need to do.
- If you just want the mohawk only, then this wig in pumpkin would look really nice. However, this alone is nowhere near as exaggerated as Flame Prince’s hair is. If you use that wig, you may want to find a weft in the same color and sew that in for extra volume. For hairspray, I’d recommend Got2B glued!
- I’d recommend using the same color for your body paint that you used for your mohawk. As always, I recommend making armsocks to save you time, hassle, and money. Here are some nice tights you can use to make them with! Remember to buy an extra pair (or more!) if you think you might mess up making them.
- You can also try using a zentai suit if you don’t want to deal with all that messy paint on your body!
- For his ears, you can either make them yourself or buy them online (if buying, buy them unpainted so you can paint them yourself). Either way, remember to paint them the same yellow as your body paint!

- Making your gem glow! (The tutorial is in German, but it’s pretty easy to see the process!)
- You can also try using instamorph! Here are the instructions!
- Another option is to buy them off of Etsy.
- Or buy a pattern to find out how to make them with papercraft!
- For his pants, one option you have is to make long bloomers and then tuck them into your boots.
- I’d recommend making your own boot covers since his boots look like they’ll be pretty hard to find.
- Here’s a tutorial to show you how to make some fire to hold!
I’m having some trouble finding out how to make his costume. If someone could help with that, I’d really appreciate it!
I hope this helps!
