Toph Bei Fong Wig by makeshiftwings30 Toph Bei Fong Wig by makeshiftwings30
Got my Toph wig done!
The stray strands of hair need to still be cleaned up, but I've been working on this for days and really want to get working on her headband!

I bought a base wig cut short and the bun is made out of upholstery foam, covered in loose hair.
Expect a tutorial soon!

Edit:
Got the headband done! It's made out of wonderflex with paperclay and sculpey details. The tassels were handmade with embroidery floss.

When you say loose hair, what do you mean? Did you cut the wig and use whatever was left for covering the upholstery, or did you get a separate clip like for what some people do with ponytail wigs?

no, it is a bag of loose hair sold in beauty supply stores

Whoa. That's incredibly clever. I never thought of that...how much does that usually cost? I'm thinking of doing Toph for the next convention I go to this summer.

besides a wig supplies should be around $20-30

I love LOVE for you to do a tutorial. I spent a good week on a Toph wig only to have it come out half as good as your and for it to fall a part on me the second I got it to the convention. I even handed the wig off to some friends to see if they could do anything but...it was such a mess from my frustration there was no saving it.

In short: AMAZING WIG. *W*

No problem! You're a wonderful Toph! (and by wonderful I mean I'm so jealous over your Toph)

Here's hoping I'll be able to give the character just as much justice one day!

Awesome work. It'll look amazing with a headband. Are you going to wear contacts? :D

:iconmakeshiftwings30:
makeshiftwings30 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks! I am, I actually have them on in the pic but it's so dark that you can't really see them. They are just light green - not blind contacts. I walked around a con blind once as Anti Sora, and I will never go around a con blind again. I'll just photoshop my pupils out, and it'll look fine!

Bisected8 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Fair enough. Do you get any visibility at all with blind contacts or are they completly opaque?
Reply
:iconmakeshiftwings30:
makeshiftwings30 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Nope. Since your pupil is covered, you cannot see. At all.

That explains that one scene in Evil Dead (where the zombie girl was licking the knife, I always thought the actress was doing it a bit clumsily :XD:).
