Anonymous said: So, I'll be doing my first cosplay in a few months. I've seen around the internet that wigs can be hard to handle and you have to know how to care/store them. I have no idea how that works and I don't have any friends that cosplay... Can you help me out?

Yeah. No problem.

The main thing is to not let your wig be just thrown into a box. They tangle easier than human hair and their hair doesn’t grow back if you rip any out while brushing.

Kanekalon wigs need to be stored indoors. Heat can melt them or unstyle them.

For my wigs, I put them in a zip lock bag, label them, and put them in a Rubbermaid bin. This has really worked for space saving/organization/safe wig storage.

For heavily styled wigs, you can store them on a wig head and put them on a shelf or rack system. If you’re worried about a heavy wig falling, get a wig holder from Sally’s or another beauty supply shop. The holder clamps onto a table or other flat surface and secures the wig head. (Buy one of these anyway for styling. Seriously its a life saver and $6)

I also take the tip of my wigs, twist them, and roll the wig so it nests into the cap. I found this is gentle on the wigs, helps braids stay in place, and helps with tangling.

I have tried other means of storage, and I love the zip bags. I can’t stress how much easier they make finding wigs… also going through a box of bags is easier than a box of hair.

I hope this helps!

Happy Costuming!

Anonymous said: I'm white but want to cosplay Uhura. I know everyone says color doesn't matter, but I'm afraid there will be double standards because I'm white. I know I shouldn't care, but I don't want to feel like I am offending anyone, and I really don't want to paint my body or anything. Should I go through with my cosplay?

Yes you should. Youre doing this for the love of a character not to be a bigot or racist. I’m actually going to cosplay the new Batgirl Beyond soon (and possibly Ultimate! WhiteTiger) and I’m white. I have african american friends who cosplay white characters all the time. Costuming is not about race, its about the joy of creating and recreating something you love.

Happy Costuming sweetheart my ear is always open for questions and support.

Anonymous said: Glad to hear you made it to St. Louis okay!

Thank you. Sorry for lack of updates we still don’t have internet. D:

We made it up and we are staying at the inlaws new home. They just bought it so it’s still unfurnished and is about to have a major overhaul of the interior. Like this was a little old ladies home and hasn’t been re decorated since 1993. We don’t have internet unless we are at the inlaws old place (which they are selling to my brother in law and his family) so I dont know if ill have as many updates outside of my phone. Love you guys! Ill be back online asap. :)
