Here is my progress on Minimandy, a fanmade character from bleedman
's story - Grim Tales
1) THE WIG:
First I worked on the bangs. She has a streak of long bangs in front, but this wig had short bangs, so I had to get some from the back and pull it forward before tying it up.
Then I worked on the devil spikes. At first I wondered how I'm going defy gravity on this one. But after my past wig-styling experiences, everything has to have a ground/ support. So I created a double knotted ponytail on both sides of the wig, where the spike will flow. Then portion by portion, and using my trusty Elmer's adhesive spray, I style away. Good thing about this than using normal hairspray? It's quick dry. Such holding power too!
Only prob is? It's a sticky job. But once it completely dries up, you can actually restyle/ bend/ fold and twist the wig like paper mâché!
2) THE CAPET:
I used the old one I made from her human form outfit:http://kasaikun16.deviantart.com/gallery/43424856because it was practically the same color.. So now it feels like I'm really the "dead" version with all the ripped-up details Nyaha!
Five feathers of different sizes and one gold royal button make for her lovely chest piece in the center
3) THE LEGS:
I wore a light gray pantyhose to get that zombie dead color. Then used black markers to draw the stitches
4) THE EYE:
It's not prostetics. I just used black eyeliner to outline the eye, then black body paint to fill it in. This is the only inaccurate part in my cosplay, so I will try to improve this when I cosplay her again next Halloween
