EpicCosplay Wig: Helen in Dark Red
The Helen wig was used because of the way in which the bangs allowed me to pull them back much easier. The front pieces were curled and threaded with beads. In addition, a medium weft was used to make a detachable drill curl to create an asymmetrical effect.
Moltres Gijinka Cosplay Wig Components
The versatile Helen wig from Epic Cosplay serves as the base for this design. Helen is a shorter wig, measuring 15” in the back, hanging about chin to shoulder length on most people. The large skintop strip across the front allows for a variety of parts. Or in this case, the skintop makes it easy to pull the bangs back completely as done for this Moltres gijinka cosplay.
Crystal Seraphim Cosplay added a matching weft to create the drill curl on the side. Epic Cosplay offers multiple styles of extensions, including weft as well as clip-in. You can sew the weft style to the wig directly, or you can attach it to a clip of your choice to create easy changeable styles.
