Rapunzel Cosplay by Ringo-Chu Rapunzel Cosplay by Ringo-Chu
Me Cosplaying as Rapunzel in a costume made by Me. This photo was also taken by me using a very unprofessional looking"unipod" crammed into the crack between my mattress and foot-board...the backdrop...well if you've seen my bedsheets....than you know what the backdrop is. Can i have some points for being resourceful now...perhaps a slice of cake?

Several nice folks have asked me for a tutorial on how to make Rapunzel's wig and i'm afraid i just havent been able to do it... when funds allow (when i am employed again) i am going to be making a whole new wig for cons but this one...which was once one piece is now five pieces that clip together...I figured it would be easier to handle at my groups photo shoot.

So i am REALLY sorry i haven't been able to produce a tutorial...I need the materials in order to do it and i cant afford them now...i'm just not willing to use what i have to make a con going wig that wont very be useful at our shoot.

If you are really interested in how to do it and have questions i'll answer them the best i can but a step by step tutorial just cant happen for a few more months.
again....I'm sorry guys :( Times are money for cosplay....its a tragedy :'(

can i ask how you attached all the kanekalon jumbo braids to the blonde base wig??

i always wanted to make a really long rapunzel wig but i never knew how to do it.

How did you get such a thick wig? i have a very thin second hand synthetic wig that is long, but as I said thin. What do you suggest. Do you know any wigs inbetween $0-$15 that would be good?

Mine is handmade from ALOT of kanekalon fiber jumbo braids and a matching blonde wig as a base.
Unfortunately I've never seen any for sale that I can recommend for thickness. For most of my costumes I end up adding extra hair to the wigs I purchase cause I really like the full look it gives. Jumbo braids usually cost around 3-5 dollars each. (it took 16 of them for this wig) my favorite place to buy them is [link]
you can sometimes find some long wigs of decent quality on ebay for around 20 (occasionally cheaper if you get lucky) Its a little tricky to tell which wigs on ebay are good quality by the photos but usually if it says the wig is made of heat resistant fiber its decent quality.

Hey Ringo-Chu, Just returned from a Disney Cruise. Saw Rapunzel in a play and I am certain that your wigs look better than the one they used. Thought you'd like to know.
