really you dont even have to make it round at all. If you just take one really long piece of fabric, or 2 if you want the skirt really full and just gather the top before attaching it to your waist, it makes a perfect circle.

For your CCS one it would probably take a week for all the small detailing but would you want the armor on the hips made from plastic or fabric or such?

The best way to keep your bangs up is spray them down with a cheep hairspray and take a blowdryer on low heat over them in the shape you want, it will hold the shape alot better. Light heat is all you need to style a wig. If it gets too hot for your fingers its t...
