About this Costume
Construction Details:
Like Kapalaka on FacebookThe wig started off as a Faux Fatale from Amphigory. I figured it would be comparably thick like the Femme Fatale, and boy was I right. The front looked perfect, and I cut away all of the hair in the back to sew on stryrofoam cones I shaped. I then covered the cones with wig hair and combed my bangs into the wig for a more realistic look.

For the hands, I made a base out of Popsicle sticks and tin foil and covered it in a layer of model magic. That stuff really is magic, I swear by it now. I then cut cracks into the palms using my own hands as a reference and painted details. NOTE!!! Model Magic gets squishy when you paint it again! I didn't know that, but it worked out somehow. -_-' I guess just give it extra dry time. I then cut out nails from foamies, glued, and painted them with glitter. =D Mmmm. I gots to have my nails did.

Personal Thoughts:
This is my dream costume. Parasite Eve was my first and favorite video game when the Playstation first came out. I've played through it at least five times. I even got the rom and put it up on my PC so I could get snapshots for wallpapers and icons later. XD

Styling Notes
I cut off all the hair from the entire back half of the wig to sew in the styrofoam cones. Because Eve's hair is supposed to look goopy, I needed to achieve that look while getting the hair to stay up. I ended up using acrylic paints suggested by Katie Bair to get it to stay in place and to give the dark hair the same dimensionality as Eve's.
Wig Review
This wig can take a beating, so don't worry about running into walls with it.
