If you’re planning a photoshoot, take into consideration the environment you will be in. Will you have natural light? Studio light? Florescent? Silky soft fibers like futara (the kind EpicCosplay Wigs uses) looks best under natural and soft lighting.
Direct or harsh lighting doesn’t allow for a cleaner finish like soft lighting does. Being able to visualize how certain colors look in different lighting will make that much of a difference in your look.
