Hello there. I’m gonna be going to Megacon, which is little less than two months away, and I plan to cosplay as Cure Star from Star Twinkle Precure. The problem is the wig. I’m able to find pink wigs online that are cheap enough for me to buy, but none of them match the length I’m looking for since the pigtails of said character are really long and go to the waist. Can you please help me out?

Hi! I’m working on ‘refurbishing’ my first cosplay, Kurumi Tokisaki from Date a Live. Everything’s going well, aside from the skirt. When I first wore it, I was wearing nothing but the skirt. So the skirt was just kinda pathetically ‘lying’ down. I hoped a hoop skirt would fix this, and it kinda does, but it doesn’t have the same wavy effect as Kurumi’s skirt does in the anime. A regular hoop skirt makes it look like a ballgown. Any idea for achieving this wavy/floaty effect? Thanks!

Hi, I need some advice on my Alessi (anime version) cosplay from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. I bought some silver Christmas ornaments at a discount price, which turned out to be glass ornaments. I was wondering how can I make the glass ornaments shatter-proof? For example, should I wrap them up in a material or put some type of coating on them? Also, what kind of string would be best for holding up the ornaments?
