Feather Wig Tutorial by Timekeeper101 Feather Wig Tutorial by Timekeeper101
I HAVE MADE FIRE!

...or possibly a wig. Yeah, yeah, the second one.

Just imagine me saying "I HAVE MADE A WIG!" in Tom Hanks' crazy voice from Castaway.

Anyway, here is Toma's wig from Aquarion. It should be pretty epic, even though it looks a little bushy. I might try spraying it with a bit of water to see if that makes it settle a bit.

MORE TIPS I FORGOT TO PUT IN THE DEVIATION!!
Don't use very much glue per feather. You should end up using about half of one of the large glue sticks... if that. Just put enough glue on each feather to make it stick; don't glob it on.
The higher you go, the fewer feathers you'll want to glue to the wefts. This is a wig, not a cheerleader's pom-pom. Also, you'll want to put shorter feathers up top and longer ones down below. Remember, though, as you glue on the feathers, that you don't want to see the wefting or the cap of the wig itself through the feathers! Make sure the head is entirely covered with feathery goodness.

It actually is quite fun. ^.^ Toma from Aquarion is what I did for this; however, it's not exactly a well-known anime or character... haha.
