Hello,

I am constructing a sailor chibi moon wig for my little sister for Nan Desu Kan. I am wondering how I can make the cones on top of her head (?) I was thinking about buying some styrofoam and wrapping pink hair around the stryofoam and then Future Card Buddy Fight it to the actually pigtailed wig but I feel like I am making it much more difficult on myself than it needs to be.

I've got the feather clips and the odangos figured out, I think. So any help with cones would be GREATLY appreciated.

I have been searching all morning for other things and everyone here is so smart and creative ^_^Y

Thanks for any advice!

You're in luck! Heza-chan just posted pictures of her finished, super cute Chibi Moon costume a few days ago and linked back to her wig tutorial.

Looks like she used styro eggs for a softer, yet still pointy, effect. Have fun!
