Hiei cosplay 07 by RurouniImiko Hiei cosplay 07 by RurouniImiko
My first attempt at a cosplay and who else should I do then my fav anime character, Hiei. Everything was made from scratch including the wig and the clothes, only thing I did not make were the contacts for obvious reasons.

This might actually be one of the better Hiei copsplays. I would've gone for a temp tattoo or something and some bandages around the arms/wrists and hands but other than that, it looks great.

Well thank you :aww:

A lot of people seem to think I should of done those things, and I agree to some point. Though I don't think it's too big of a deal personally because he didn't always have the tattoo and bandages on his arm all his life so me not having it or the wrappings is still cannon :meow:

Thanks again for the critique though ^^

Out of all of the Hiei costumes i've seen, (which is a lot because I love the character) yours is by far the best. You should be very proud of yourself! Especially since this is your first costume! I too am very curious as to how you made the amazing wig!

I would appreciate the links so much! Thank you!

Will you be attending Youmacon in Michigan this year? We're planning a large YYH group. I'll be bringing my Yukina, Old Genkai and Koto. We're going to have a Young Genkai, Juri, Ruka and a Kuwabara also.

I was thinking about going to Youmacon, just depends on if I have money and stuff like that.

Here are the links, I hope they are helpful!

This is a great tutorial on how to make wefts and how to put them onto a wig, it was my main reference when making the wig...
[link]

This is a video I watched to figure out supplies for spiking the wig...

These three sites aren't necessarily for making wigs but they do have helpful info..
