Eboshi almost done?!?!?  
I got my wig in today for my Lady Eboshi costume. It's gorgeous! I won a bid off a seller on ebay.. I think it was one Ringo had reccommended. I got a jet black wig that looks very similar to Ringo's Sasha wig, and it looks beautiful. It has an adjustable cap with a skin top at the forehead, and peaks on the sideburns. It's going to be a shame to cut (But I'm not cutting it much) but it'll work wonderfully. I'm hoping that I can get everything to sit and stay without any sort of shellac, etc.. b/c this wig is very nice. IT'll be perfect to reuse over and over for other costumes (If I do anything else that requires black hair) I'm a little bit concerned about how I am going to keep it sitting up how it is supposed to...but I may be able to sew it down by placing a few stitches through the wig cap. Then, it won't be permanent. I'm having a somewhat difficult time of it, though, b/c I don't have a wig head stand, and the wig is rather long.. so even on a wig head, it's tricky to work with. I've separated one sideburn already. That's where the cut has to be made. I need to cut it straight into a Japanese princess cut.. then, I take the back and pull it into a ponytail. Then, I double the ponytail over so the tips of the wig hang over my forehead like bangs. And that, kiddos, is how it's done accurately. The trick is getting it to stay that way, and look slick. Before I play with the wig, though, I need to make the orange under-kimono, fit it with the hakama, and make the big haori-type jacket.
