Also posted on Cosplay.com, but since I'm not getting any replies there, I thought I'd try here, too.
I'm planning on cosplaying Regina Berry
from the Pheonix Wright series, and as you can see, her hair has quite a bit of volume on top. I was planning on doing a style closer to what himegyaru wear
instead of the sausage curls (since those would look silly on me), but I was wondering how to go about this style. I don't want a bouffant where the hair looks slicked back over it (like there is some sort of support underneath), but rather lots of volumized curls on top, like the examples.
My current plan is to buy Amphigory's Alisa wig
, add in a weft or two up top, and curling those to get as much volume as possible out of them, but I'm not sure how well my plan will work, since I don't know if it will get me the volume on top. Should I go with wefts that match the rest of my wig and curl those and hope that the sheer volume of curled hair will keep that style, or will that be too heavy to support itself? Or should I go with smaller wefts sewn in underneath and curled to add bulk to just the top? I don't want anything big enough to need a foamcore base or anything, just volume, but I also don't want to look like a cheesy '80s music video or anything. :<
Any advice? Should I just scrap my plans altogether and go for a totally different wig, and if so, which one should I go for?
Thank you very much.
