My Rapunzel wig - Finished at last. All thanks to Naraku Brock, Nikoschka and Makki! <3 I couldn’t have done this without you three! Thank you so much!
If you’d like to know more about how we made this monster you should continue reading… or not.
It all began on a cold Saturday in February when three confident cosplayers went to a local AfroShop to get additional strands of hair for this wig. We ended up buying four packages of hair in different colours and returned to Naraku’s place. (Note: At this point we were still confident to finish the whole wig within one day. We were so naive…)
First of all we started making extensions which we glued into the wig with hot-glue. We also gave the wig Rapunzel’s authentic side-parting this way.
At this point we were planning to recreate Rapunzel’s Disneyland hairstyle which looks looser than the look she wears in the original movie and which is not braided all the way down to her calves. (Note: Hardcore-Disney-Fans know what I’m talking about.) We were sure the extensions would make the wig thick enough, but when we finally braided it we had to realize that it still lacked hair. The braid was only about 15cm wide. Gnah. After one day of extension-making and -adding we decided to give up for the point being and to style the wig in the original movie way. I wore Rapunzel with a short wig and this wig was put to the side for the time being…
We continued working on it in September. I bought a yoga mat which we cut in three and shaped to thin tubes. These tubes we attached to the wig and glued the hair around them. Afterwards we braided them. (Note: That was so much HARDER than it sounds here. If you are planning to make a Rapunzel wig as well, go for something really soft like thin foam.)
Today - the third day we were working on this wig - Naraku and I spend cutting off loose hairs and attaching flowers to the wig. That alone took us further five hours…
All in all we worked on the braided wig for 21 hours. It is about 130cm long and weights about 1kg. It’s surprisingly comfortable to wear and only slightly heavier than my Kendappa-Oh wig which I wore to Connichi last year. I’m extremely excited to finally debute this version of Rapunzel at Connichi next Sunday. <3

he saw his chance and he took it

He just looks really, really, really awesome as Hickup.
He’s really handsome too or is that just me? Anyway? Absolutely AWESOME! Once again a proof that COSPLAY IS FOR EVERYONE.

Front and back view of the fully embroidered Rapunzel skirt. It took me a couple of months to finish it, but I’m really proud of myself and happy about the way it turned out. I will try to upload pictures of better quality tomorrow morning!
