:Sailor Moon Pigtail Tutorial: by GarnetFlight :Sailor Moon Pigtail Tutorial: by GarnetFlight
Because I get mad at Cosplayers who hoard their expertise, I decided to make a tutorial for the Pigtail innovation I came up with.
Ok, so its not the absolute best, but here it is!

I promise to get more pictures and make a more in-depth one when I start on my Wicked Lady wig. But until then, I don't have the materials, and quite frankly I don't care! lol

I will be selling these pigtails ready-made. And they won't be insanely expensive. Probably around $40-45. Note me if you wish to request a specific color!

Have fun figuring this out Kids!

for those who are just turning to this tutorial a couple of hints. The rope braid should be a quarter of an inch thick. The weft extension you use should be 8 ft long and about 19-20in in length but no longer than that. Each spiral should be about a quarter to half an inch from the last depending on how thick you want your tail to be remember though the closer together the more weft your going to need.

Can I ask how long the wefts you used were? I can't order from ragdolly or sallys, due to being in the UK :(

Question, is it 3 wefts per pigtail?

Wonderful tutorial! I'm definitely going to be using this in the not too distant future, because now I know what you mean by the nightmare of loose fiber pigtails. Heheh. =_=; That'll teach me.

I'm thinking about using this method to do a Miku Hatsune wig. Whats your opinion on using longer wefts and making it less layery? Or would that look funny

Can I ask you where you get your wefts? I've been looking trying to find good quality ones that weren't insanely expensive but haven't had any luck.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Wig looks great btw :)

I get them from wherever I can find them! My suppliers change practically every time I do a wig.
I had gotten the wefts in party colors from cosworx, they got very unreliable recently with their weft selection.
In regular colors (613 blonde or 27/613) I usually buy from a site called Hair Sisters. I buy Outre Batik in silky straight. There is a local hair shop that I can sometimes find this brand in as well.
