More About this Sailor Cosmos Cosplay Wig
Featured cosplayer Caroline Renee used the Gaia pigtail wig from Epic Cosplay as the base for this design. Of course, it took a few skilled modifications to achieve the impressive level of accuracy found here. In this section, learn about the features that made the Gaia wig such a great choice for this Sailor Cosmos cosplay.
First, the Gaia wig is heat resistant up to 410 degrees. This made it possible to curl the bangs for this Sailor Cosmos cosplay with a straightener – but other heat styling tools work great too. In fact, the Epic Cosplay website has several useful curling tutorials. Read through the heat tools tutorial or the hot water curling guide, just to name a few.
Styling a wig to create pigtails often requires a lot of work. The unique construction of the Gaia wig makes this a little easier because it comes styled with pigtails already in place. However, Gaia is a shorter wig. Caroline Renee used extensions to create the pigtails and heart-shaped odango for this Sailor Cosmos cosplay.
