Hot Water Wig Curling by Epic Cosplay

I always get a little nervous when I go Cosplaying around the city and there isn’t a convention going on anywhere. You never know how people are going to react. Some people can be really cruel or the police just target you for being a “Weirdo.” Needless to say, I’m always on guard. 

However, this precious moment happen while we were at the Capitol. 

While we were setting up the Photo Shoot, these little girls came timidly walking up to us. The eldest said that the little girl in pink wanted to say hi. The little girl in pink was so shy that she couldn’t get a word out but just a shy smile. 

The eldest, who spoke for the whole group, said that all the girls had never met a Female Superhero. They were all so excited! 

I didn’t have the heart to explain that I wasn’t technically a girl but a genderbend of Bucky but all the girls were so excited to shake my hand, hug me, and just talk to me that I decided it wasn’t even worth the mention.

The younger ones kept jumping up and down and saying “You’re so cool!” - “You’re like Super Woman!” ~ “Girl Power!” They just filled up my heart with joy. 

They all had to leave after a few minutes but gave me a huge hug and said I made their trip amazing. 

Moments like this is why I believe Cosplay is so awesome! It isn’t about how many LIKES you have or how “Cosfamous” you are. It’s about doing what you love and, in the process, spreading as much love and joy to others that you feel yourself!

It me!!! Archie this was such a lovely video. You are such a sweetheart and meeting you was an absolute pleasure.


I’ve had some questions about this and I’ve only now gotten around to making this. Unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures while I was making the wig, so this will be mostly text based!


  • Wire (I used floral wire, I recommend something thick)
  • Tape (Something paint will cover…



Worbla Tests - Making Worbla Smooth

We did some testing with Worbla, Gesso, Mod Podge Spray Sealer, and Plasti-Dip.

(a more detailed post on method will come shortly)

In your opinion, which yielded best results? A or B?

Thank you for running this test, Thanh. I know you’ve got one other method to try, but I’m really surprised that the classic stand by of Gesso and Mod Podge are still the best result.

I am disappoint Plasti-Dip. Much sadness.

Orochimaru’s Upside-Down Butt-Bow from Naruto


I did a little write up on different wig dyeing methods and I figured the best way to display it is a flow chart.

Use this along with my blog post here for more info, tutorial links, pros/cons, and sample results/notes.

Edit: Added “heat resistance” to make sure no one melts their wig. Be sure to consult the blog for more info.
